Travel through Bible history with this comprehensible exploration of the Bible, following the key narratives from Genesis to Revelation. Perfect as a child's first Bible reference, he will travel through Bible lands and times and discover how the people lived: the foods they ate, the homes they occupied, the clothes they wore, and the work they performed. There are sections of study questions throughout to further learning, as well as glossaries and FAQs to help understanding.
This is a nice Bible Handbook for an older child, tween, or teen who is just beginning to study the Bible by themselves. It will help guide them into thinking about the different events and layout of God’s Word to make them dig deeper into God’s word.
For each book of the Bible you glimpse into the book along with an outline of the events in that book. Each section has a, “Frequently Asked Questions” about that particular book followed by a short summary of the question. Another nice feature is, “Look out for”, which points out many different things to take notice of while reading that particular book. Then another feature is the, “Study Questions” which allows you to dig deeper.
The illustrations are gorgeous in full-color pictures, maps, and 3D illustrations of the cities mentioned in the Bible. You will see pictures of the Tabernacle, Solomon's Temple, Herod's Temple, and villages. The pictures are well thought out and placed in the appropriate section of the Bible Handbook.
I didn’t see anything in this Bible Handbook that I would question. I am very impressed with the layout, and topics covered included within the pages of this handbook. This would make a nice gift for ages 9-15 wanting to dig deeper into God’s word.
