From the Back Cover
Halley's Bible Handbook was born out of the conviction of Henry H. Halley that everyone ought to read the Bible daily. From its first edition, a small give-away booklet of 16 pages, it has grown into an 864-page "almanac" of biblical information, used regularly by hundreds of thousands of laymen, teachers, and ministers. Halley's Bible Handbook contains more biblical information than any other book of its size. It has been a continuous best-seller through the years and has sold more than five million copies in many languages.
About the Author
Dr. Henry H. Halley was a well-respected author, minister, and Bible lecturer, dedicating his life to spreading his passion for Bible study and memorization. The original "Halley's Bible Handbook" grew from small pamphlets about the Bible that he gave away to encourage churches and individuals in Bible study.

I have always kept one near to my books of value, Bible being "Ultimate #1!".... But my newly born sister was not willing to dig, dig, dig daily! Ya, know.... The go to Church on Sunday, grab a few cool verses that fit life off facebook, or Bible apps, and rarely spend over an hour in the word a WEEK! .....
As for usefulness, priceless *Even as the time wrote, many things have come about since the 50's 60's.... And if you have ANY person that is hungry for God's Word. *Of course a Bible is sufficient! This is just a great post-gift if already have Bible... Because, well *It is self-explanitory "A Bible hand-book"!....... Great gift to others and yourself! Many gems of statistics, dates, explanations of main thrust of each 66 books of The Bible, and so much more! Buy! Buy! Buy! As our Biblical freedom will be halted in the nearing future....
I would rather Prep with a Duffle bag of Bibles, than a duffle bag of food, suplies and defence items!... Both are worthy of doing. Yet I allow the 1st to take presidence... love you all!....
This book should be one of the first companion books tried by first time Bible readers, those new to studying scriptures, because they will not be overwhelmed. Also, after many years of study, we still use it, for quick information available, accuracy, and I just like that he is to the point.
I give it five stars because it is what it states, an updated version of an already useful text. Compared to some other more colorful, net ready, references out there, others may prefer more internet interaction than this book will give. But for the price, it's worth having.
This book small enough that it's not too bad to carry around, but it's still about the size of 3 paperback books sandwiched together so it's definitely bigger than pocket-sized. My friend has the revised and expanded edition and it isn't that much bigger, so again, if you're looking for more than lecture notes, go ahead and get that one instead. You aren't saving much space or weight by getting the abbreviated version over the expanded version.
