It helps me to really connect with the Readings and the sermon in church as well as material covered in Bible Study. The color illustrations and maps are just excellent, and a HUGE amount of useful Bible information is packed into the most compact format possible. I won't repeat what the first reviewer wrote because I agree with all of it.
This book really opens up the Bible to the interested Bible student and includes so much fascinating material. There is a good, basic index at the back so you can look up topics you are interested in learning about. You can read the book from beginning to end or just pick a section and read for a few minutes. Just to give a few small examples: illustrated information on how people in Biblical times lived with sections on clothes, housing, food, occupations, both Temples, etc. is just one part of the book; a list with descriptions of all of the OT Prophets is another, and there is also lots of Bible archeology material, but I couldn't begin to list anything like all the stuff that is covered.
If you are an interested Bible student buy a copy of this book. You will never regret it. You can pick it up and turn to any page and find really fascinating stuff.
Beginning at the beginning, this handbook: explains how the Bible came to us; describes life in Bible times; provides timelines of world events; and uses tables to list everything from the names of many pagan gods to the many names of the one True God.
Hardcover, The Crossway Illustrated Bible Handbook is 240 pages of glossy pages begging for excessive use. Specific topics in the eight chapters are easily found via the index in the back. The final chapter, "Some Bible Facts and Figures," is a veritable cookie jar stocked with fascinating Bible statistics, facts about angels, and messianic prophesies. Trivia fans will flock to the Bible names and their meanings, the lists of animals, vegetables, minerals, and musical instruments found in the Old and New Testaments.
The Crossway Illustrated Bible Handbook is a valuable compliment for your Bible reading. It is a thoughtful and practical gift for someone who is new to the Bible, or someone who wants to know how and why the Bible has survived over the centuries. Reading through this reference is a painless way of becoming knowledgeable about the Word of God. A worthy companion and a worthy investment for ages five through adult. - PeggySue Wells, Christian Book Previews.com
Unfortunately, this time I did. I ordered 7 copies of a book and needed
them within 10 days for my class members. Six were sent in 4 different
shipments. I cancelled the last book as it wouldn't be delivered
until May. The original order was placed March 25th. I will continue
to order one book, but not more than that. The order by the way,
was for all new books.
