Nelson's Complete Book of Bible Maps and Charts

Nelson’s Complete Book of Bible Maps and Charts (third edition)
This is an excellent resource for anyone. I really enjoyed the color pictures, charts and maps. The book is prepared in an easy to access format. It presents an overview of each book of the bible, telling the approximate date it was written, the author and information surrounding that author, a synopsis of the book, and the theme and literary structure. This is very informative commentary. There is also a very helpful chart that lays out the book at a glance: a quick overview of the major themes of the book and chapters. The outline is very helpful as well and makes sorting and finding the exact information you are looking for easy. I thought the color photos of the ruins and modern sites listed in the scriptures were a very neat added feature. This helps the bible to come alive as you study the scripture and are able to see the site that you are studying about. The colored maps are helpful when you are studying a map that is presenting more than one “journey”. This is an excellent personal resource. I would also recommend it to the Sunday school teacher who wants to bring alive the scripture for the class as it has reproducible maps and charts. Thank you Thomas Nelson for providing this for review.
