Reviews - What do customers think about The Bible at a Glance (Faith Charts)?
The Bible at a Glance Faith Chart Excellent Aide Apr 8, 2010
Upon receiving The Bible at a Glance Faith Chart written by Scott Hahn, I sat down & immediately read this Biblical Reading Aide from front to back. Who knew such an amount of information could be contained in a tri-fold chart? I found myself thinking back to scripture read previously, but which I did not feel I had truly understood the meaning.
This Faith Chart,as there are others, broke down the contents of the Bible in a way that I could read with more understanding. Mr. Hahn provides an aide to those who wish to enrich their Bible reading. He does so by providing short, concise synopses for the reader to gain a better view of history, prophets, saints, & God's Covenant with us through the sacrifice of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. I particularly appreciated section 2, "The Shape of the Bible." Within this section, the reader is able to understand how the Old & New Testaments support each other. Scott Hahn takes the enormity of the Bible & shows the reader how undertake this experience with joy versus trepidation.
Both adults and children will enjoy The Bible at a Glance Faith Charts! The Bible at a Glance well worth the small investment. Scott Hahn has provided an excellent guide for the new reader, a lapsed reader, devoted, and/or a theological studied reader of God's Holy Word.
Mr. Hahn has other Faith Charts available covering a variety of Biblical subjects. I highly recommend my first Faith Chart, The Bible at a Glance & will be purchasing others soon! For those who are interested in only books/phamphlets/readings with the approval of the Holy Catholic Church, The Bible at a Glance have the official Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur declaration on the last page.
Thank you for reading my review. I would appreciate any feedback on how to improve my writings.
Excellent reference tool for Bible study and personal use Nov 6, 2009
You will be amazed at how much is packed into this little chart. I have bought two more for gifts!
Great classroom aid Aug 5, 2009
I will be purchasing more of these 'The Bible at a Glance' charts, one for each of our CCD classrooms. It is a great way to give the children an introductory overview of the Word of God. I highly recommend this product.
Good Resource Apr 26, 2009
This is a good, visual overview of the Bible. It's a tri-fold glossy document on heavier stock paper.
Page one provides an overview of the Bible as a whole - what is it, how is it structured, who were the authors, and how was the content (canon) determined.
Page two continues this overview, briefly covering the relationship between the Bible and the Church (implied but not stated to be the Roman Catholic Church), the proper way of interpreting the Bible (explicitly Roman Catholic), and the usefulness of a defined reading program.
Pages 3,4 & the first part of 5 provide 1-2 sentence summaries of every book of the Bible.
The remainder of page 5 and page 6 are dedicated to indicating where in Scripture certain events and prophecies are recorded.
This item is a document of the Roman Catholic Church, vetted through the Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur. While there is a Catholic flavor to the document as a whole, it remains a useful summary tool for any Christian seeking a quick-reference to Scripture. The only real area where Catholic doctrine is obvious is in the repeated emphasis on Scripture as part of sacred Tradition.
I would definitely recommend this resource to anyone wanting a handy quick reference on the Bible.
The Title does NOT do this product justice as it is MUCH MORE than a glance @ the Bible but an entire overview! Mar 2, 2009
Another GREAT by Scott Hahn!! What more do you have to say than that?
