Reviews - What do customers think about The Collegeville Bible Time-Line?
Puts it all in one (rather long) place Apr 15, 2006
The real purpose of this book is the fold-out time-line. It is beautiful and about 5 feet long (8 pages). It makes good use of color and symbols. It compares Biblical events with other world events to help give it a better context. The chart can be easily removed without damage, but you may need to re-staple the book (or throw it away). The chart is printed on only one side of coated glossy paper so there is no image bleed-through.
The chart begins with Abraham and concludes with the death of the Apostle John.
Very useful for the classroom or for home study.
The text is, well, condensed. The authors managed to squeeze the entire history of the Israel and the Apostles into 16 pages, including the index.
