Halley's Bible Handbook Jan 12, 2007
This book is a must if you are studying the Bible. Explanations are given of facts, verses, people and places as you go from one Book in your Bible to the next. I found out about it in Bible study class. My Senior Pastor, has a copy he got over 40 yrs ago, and still used. One of the best studying guides you can have in your library.
Great for serious, new students of the Word Jan 9, 2007
Involved in ministry to soldiers. This book is a great introductory tool to help new but serious readers of the Bible to understand the background historical context or that which is not found directly in the pages of the biblical text.
Great Reference book Dec 3, 2006
I use this book to complement my Disciple Bible Study Class. It is a great reference book and provides more information on the scripture I'm studying. I've had several "ah-ha" moments after reading this book.
Excellent resource Mar 17, 2006
This is an excellent complement to my "Read the Bible in a Year" study. I especially appreciate the historical perspective, and geographical references. The pictures really help bring the Bible to life.
A Must Have Mar 3, 2006
