Great resource for the Bible Scholar... Jan 23, 2007
This book is a great resource for the Bible scholar, or just someone interested in studying the Old Testament.
The book is filled with charts and graphs that help to put the timeline and other events and prophecies of the Old Testament in perspective.
A very helpful tool!
Necessary Tool for teaching or studying the Bible Sep 9, 2006
I first purchased this chart book back in my college days (several years ago). Loved it then, and even more so now. Thank you Lord for tools like this. I've used it many times in bible study (either personal study or facilitating classes). You just can't beat the charts, brief explainations, clear format. The New Testament companion is great, as well as the Church History version, Theology version and Philosophy version. Definitely essentials in every person's library. And if not for you, get it for your kids. They really need to see things visually to understand anything anyway!
These CHARTS are the best. Get them all. Mar 26, 2002
Were all biased anyway. The question is which bias is the best bias. Catholics or anyone who "may not benefit as much" from this tool should wonder why not? I don't think God wrote a book hard to be understood. If you are a Catholic, Charismatic, or of the "Orthodox" persuasion, and you cannot "benifit as much" from this chart due to "bias", then perhaps you need to explore the differences between what makes a Christian different from a Catholic. These are not merely terms. A "Christian" is not an umbrella that encompasses a vast majority of mainline denominations or cults or movements or sects, as many people would have others to believe. God in His word tells us who are His. It would be best for folks to check it out. (Jn.1:12; 3:16; Eph.2:8 etc.)----anyway. As the Charts are a great series I personally own three of the set or series, and they are outstanding.
Another good example of useful charts Apr 24, 2001
This book of charts is part of a series covering the Old Testament, the New Testament, Church History, Christian Doctrine, Philosophy, etc.
Of the several that I have, I would rate this as not quite as good as its New TEstament counterpart.
There are easily just as many points of difference in doctrine and theology in the Old Testament as in the New; and there is no consensus in the Christian Church on the actual contents of the Old Testament Canon. As such, the obvious Protestant bias limits the ultimate value of this book for Catholic or Orthodox.
Nevertheless, this would still be a good book for the "informed layman" or for a church library.
But it is not without its flaws, and that needs to be realized in advance by clergy of differing backgrounds.
