- Increases your understanding of Biblical history and gives you new insights into the people, places and events in Scripture.
The Illustrated Guide to Biblical History provides both novices and advanced Bible students a practical way of placing the Bible's myriad of details in an easy-to-grasp, easy-to-remember pattern.
Being able to locate people and events on the timeline of Biblical history takes the guesswork out of Bible study and gives you new insights into God’s plan for His people and creation. Since the books in the Bible are not arranged in historical sequence, it’s easy to miss connections between various events and people that appear in different books. This is especially true of many Old Testament Books. Now, >The Illustrated Guide to Biblical History allows you to see numerous connections that you otherwise might have missed.
This invaluable resource will take your Bible study to a new level, with over 200 photos, 75 maps, and 15 timelines, all designed to increase your understanding of what God has done, and what He is doing, and what He will do.
