Book Review - The Chronological Guide to the Bible

I am a member of the Thomas Nelson “Book Sneeze” blogger program and would like to thank Thomas Nelson Publishers for providing me with a copy of this book to review.

There are times when I am thoroughly confused by the Bible. I understand the message, and the passages themselves, but I get confused because the Bible isn't in chronological order.

The Chronological Guide to the Bible is organized very neatly into nine epochs beginning with Creation and ending with Revelation. Each section includes beautiful illustrations and artwork, a time line, a reading guide and detailed maps. I found this guide to the Bible easy to read and written in clear, concise language. The Chronological Guide to the Bible works with any translation and all 66 books of the Bible are included.

Particularly interesting to me is the introduction to the Chronological Guide. The introduction explained to me, some interesting points about the Bible itself, such as who wrote the texts, when they wrote them and why the texts were written. It also included an explanation as to how the Chronological Guide was arranged.

The Chronological guide to the Bible is a great reference book. Used along with a study Bible, the Chronological Guide can help to give a deeper understanding of the people, places and history of any part of the Bible.

The Chronological Guide to the Bible retails for $24.99 and is well worth the price.

Disclosure of Material Connection
