Another aspect that gripped me was the display of family trees for Abraham, Jacob, David and Herod the Great. Further clarity is shown through all those Prophets and the position they occupy via a Timeline diagram. To complete the information the book has an Alphabetical List of names that is structured so logically that even if you have a spelling problem it will direct you a wide choice of reference points to qualify whom the person is that you are seeking out.
One of the better Non-Fiction books I have used in many a day. Remember it is a Biblical Reference book and that is where for me it scores a high level of recommendation for all who love God's Word.
The content of this book is great and I have no issues there. It is a
complete work that is very helpful as a reference to see the context and
significance of individuals in the bible. I would have rated this work more
highly, but having to leaf through at least a hundred pages to get from a to z
makes this book difficult to use in Kindle.
Many Bibles are far easier to search in Kindle so one can only assume that little
thought has been given to the book being used as a reference work, which is it's purpose.
Instead there is an assumption that one is already in the chapter that contains the reference
and it is easier if that is the case. Over the years I have used a similar book and my experience
is that very often I will be looking to find where that person is mentioned in the first place.
I was therefore disappointed with this purchase.
