Excellent! Jul 15, 2008
I am a homeschooling mom of 10. I was thrilled with this timeline. It is everything i was looking for and more. Wonderful resource. The kids have enjoyed almost as much as I have!
Surprise! Not a book but a 20 foot time line chart Dec 11, 2007
I bought this thinking it was a book of Biblical time lines. Turns out it is a 20 foot long card stock pull-out inside the covers of a book. There are 26 8 1/2 x 11 pages folded together. It does a good job showing Biblical happenings on the top part with world history on the lower part. If I was looking for a time line chart for a Sunday School, for instance, I would have bought this one. I imagine most people will hang the time line on a wall for display, in which case there really isn't a need for the book style cover. It would be nice if they would sell the time-line without the cover at a discount.
A great reference, just a bit parochial. 4 1/2 stars really Sep 14, 2007
The 'Rose Book of Bible & Christian History Time Lines' by Rose Publishing must be taken exactly at its word, in that it lays out a history as related in the Bible itself. To be sure, it isolates everything prior to Abraham to a section which tends to recognize that we are talking about myths, but otherwise, it essentially takes the Biblical timeline at its word. This is superb, if you are teaching the Bible to anyone up to High School. For example, there is no hint of the archeological evidence and even evidence from within the Bible itself that were were more than 12 historical tribes of Israel, and that the Levites were from an entirely different background than the northern 12 tribes. The one thing I want to stress the most is that Rose Publishing tends to put all their material out in many, many different forms. This version of the timeline is far superior to the one in a similar volume, 'Rose Book of Bible Charts, Maps & Timelines'. I found this volume quite useful in finding and checking dates of many historical events, although if you need an authoritative source for dates, see 'An Outline of World History' by Langer.
Fascinating May 22, 2007
This is a fascinating time line...hundreds of facts. Lots of pictures as well. 2 giant time lines on Biblical history and world history. A great reference tool.
20-Foot Bible Time Line with Photos, Illustrations, Maps Dec 4, 2006
The Rose Book of Bible and Christian History Time Lines is a full-color book with a fold-out 20-foot time line inside. It covers more than 4,000 years at a glance.
It compares Bible and World history side by side.
The time line can be read like a book, or taken out the cover and put it up on the wall. (You can do this without damaging the book, as it has a slide-out pocket in the back.) It has more than 1,000 facts and key people.
Comparison to other Bible/Christian History time line books on the market: (1) The Rose time line includes more than 6,000 years of history from Genesis to present day and is more than 20 feet long. It includes the genealogy from Adam and Eve to Abraham and more. (2) includes highly detailed information from 2200 BC - present, whereas the Timechart of Biblical History ends at AD 100, and the The Wallchart of World History (Revised): From Earliest Times to the Present - A Facsimile Edition ends at 1997. (3) The Rose timeline includes more than 300 key events and people from church history (the Wallchart of World History has 30 facts specifically addressing key events/people in church history), (4) Rose has illustrations, photos, archaeological finds, maps, and uses updated scholarship. The Wallchart of World History and the Timechart of Biblical History are mainly reprints of a public domain time line from the Victorian era (1890). Most of the illustrations are quaint colored pen-and-ink drawings. (5) The Rose book fits vertically on a book shelf (the two time line books above are more than 17.5 inches tall, taller in reality than what is listed--I own all of them), (6) The Rose time line uses large print using 11 point type, whereas other two fold-out time lines use 4-8 point type, (7) all are on heavy chart paper (8) The Rose time line can be removed from the binding and then put back into binding (unlike the others where the time line is glued permanently into the binding). (9) Size: The Rose Book of Bible & Christian History Time lines truly is a 20-foot time line (actually 21 feet). However, despite the claims, the "Timechart of Biblical History" has only 10 feet of actual continous time line. "The Wallchart of World History" has 30-feet of printed material, but the continuous time line only makes up 15 feet of that. (10) The Rose time line has all of the printed information on one side, so that when it is unfolded all dates can be seen at a glance. The others have printing on both sides, so that it needs to be turned over to see all of the time line and other information. (11) The Rose time line is more expensive ($10-12 higher list price), but is worth it. (12) All three books list Creation, the genealogies (the "begats"), Noah, the Flood, the patriarchs, Moses, slavery in Egypt, the Exodus, Wilderness wandering, major battles, kings of Judah and Israel, prophets, key events in the Bible, Joshua's conquest of Canaan, lives of King Saul, King David, and King Solomon, Babylonian and Assyrian attacks, The Exile, the Intertestamental period, the rise of the Roman Empire, Jesus' life and ministry, choosing the disciples, Jesus' crucifixion, death and resurrection and ascension, the lives of Peter, Paul, and other apostles, the writing of the books of the Bible, Paul's missionary journeys.
This book is for history lovers, teachers, professors, pastors, home schoolers, Bible study leaders, small groups, adult Sunday school, youth pastors, religion classes. A simplified time line for grades K-5 is the Giant 10-Foot Bible Time Line.
