I purchased this book to give my children a good idea of Bible time geography and what I received was some interesting facts about the Holy lands mixed in with poor theology and a lack of Bible knowledge. The author includes references to "10 million" years ago as well as presenting a God who had to send plagues on Egypt to get Pharaoh to let God's people go (no mention of God hardening Pharaoh's heart). If there would have been color pictures (like his book for adults), I could have edited the content and still received what I was looking for. However, the line drawings - as interesting as they are - don't make the information any clearer. If you're looking for a book that esteems the authority of the Bible, this is not the book for you.
