Publishers Description Halley's Bible Handbook was born out of Henry H. Halley's conviction that everyone ought to read the Bible daily. From its first edition, a small give-away booklet of 16 pages, it has grown into a 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 its size. It has been a continuous best-seller through the years and has sold more than five million copies in many languages. On April 28, 1961, the GUTENBERG AWARD was presented to Dr. Henry H. Halley by the Chicago Bible Society. The award reads in part: 'Throughout the years, Halley's Bible Handbook, in one edition after another, has aided the sincere Bible student to find his way more deeply into the blessed and saving knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.'

Gets Mt. Ararat wrong May 8, 2006
Halley uses 17,000 ft. high Mt. Ararat in eastern Turkey as Noah's Ark's final resting place when the Bible says mountains of ararat in the book of Genesis. Also, old traditions attribute the Ararat range to a different area than where Mt. Ararat (formerly Mt. Masis) is located.
On other points he talks about humankind seemingly only 6,000 years old (as most Biblical versions claim if generations are taken literally in Genesis). Well, like another book written in the early 1960's (The Genesis Flood) this book is out of date badly on the age of humankind as DNA studies have since totally proven human life is much older than the few thousand years these books claim. Unlike the Genesis Flood this book seems to reflect the author's real genuine beliefs.
