Item description for The Timechart History of Mormonism by Jana Riess Christopher Kimball Bigelow...
With unparalleled scope and grandeur, The Timechart History of Mormonism lays out LDS scriptural and church history in one gigantic panoramic sweep, from Adam through 2005 A.D. As readers browse the easily digestible text and beautiful paintings, maps, and photographs, they can experience and absorb the whole span of Mormon history in an unprecedented fashion. Suitable for folding out to its full length of several yards or viewing page by page, this vivid, compelling timechart is designed to appeal to teachers, students, historians, and readers of all ages, including longtime Mormons and those new to the faith or curious about it. No visual LDS history resource this large and comprehensive has ever been made available before! In addition to depicting the key events and people of the Old Testament, the Book of Mormon, the New Testament, and the Latter-day Saints of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, this timechart includes a stream of world history events to help put things into perspective. The reverse of the timeline features a basic primer on Mormonism, covering beliefs and ordinances, scriptures, temples, prophets, and historical sites. An accompanying 32-page booklet provides more depth on Joseph Smith and the origins of Mormonism; the major Mormon migrations; Mormon contributions to science, art, politics, and popular culture; the faith's modern worldwide expansion; and much more.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Timechart History of Mormonism?
Visual learners delight Aug 26, 2008
Also bought it at Costco for my kids so they would be able to "see" how the history connects front to back. The whole family uses it for reference and it rarely gets put on the shelf for long. GREAT resource.
Very useful guide May 12, 2008
I bought my original at Costco and can't find anymore except on this site. Every Mormon household should have one of these books. I have found it very enlightening and informative. Extremely well thought out and organized. Would make great gifts for family members.
