This is the "big people" bible handbook. This is great to have as a resource especially for adults or older children. The younger children of the family will benefit from the What the Bible is All About Handbook for kids.
I especially liked this because if one wanted to one could read through this like a bible study, addressing each book as its own study. Each book has selected bible readings for an entire week - so that one could thoroughly study and pour through the scriptures to glean the truth from it and truly grow in one's spiritual walk. Each study of the book begins with a description of the author, the date the book was written and what was going on at the time, the purpose and summary. It then delves into the chapters of the book giving additional description of things going on in the book.
Very helpful is the fact that a dictionary is located in the back to help with words that are difficult.
Thank you Gospel Light for this review copy.
