One small complaint that I have with the book is the fact that the charts and graphs seem to be organized in no constructive manner. They are not chronological in nature, nor are they alphabetical in nature. I have still yet to figure out exactly how the charts are organized in the work. Aside from that, I can't think of anything else wrong with this work.
If you're going to be teaching in Old Testament class soon, I would recommend purchasing a copy of this. It also comes with the publishers permission to make copies for classroom use. I can't tell you how many times I referred to this book while teaching an OT Survey class.

This is a third party review, from an impartial consumer. I was not paid for this review, nor was I provided a complementary copy of the material from the publisher for my review.
Chronological and Background Charts of the Old Testament is an invaluable resource for any Bible student - layperson or scholar. 118 pages covering 102 charts on everything from Bible chronology to ancient Near Eastern history to comparisons of various Bible study methods, this book has the chart you need to help you put the Bible into context.
Great for personal use or group study, these charts provide the reader with unparalleled visual organization that get you the information you want without making you spend hours trying to figure it out. It's a great resource, and I certainly recommend it! Definitely came in handy during my college-level class on Genesis.
The book is filled with charts and graphs that help to put the timeline and other events and prophecies of the Old Testament in perspective.
A very helpful tool!
