Bible Facts that Don't Weigh You Down

Posted by James Warwood  ·  Be the first to comment

When I first saw this book I thought, “wow it’s a Bible Atlas that’s almost pocket-sized!” Measuring just a couple mm’s more than your average paperback, this handy reference book is more than transportable. Whether taking it to church or to your Bible study group, you won’t be weighed down.

As for content, it spans the whole of the Bible’s fascinating history – from creation to the spread of Christianity. It’s geographically rich, travelling across the globe and includes many photos, maps and artifacts. Each section is spread over a double page, with clear subtitles and to-the-point language. I can see this book being extremely useful for every day Bible readers who want some historical/geological insight while they read about Solomon’s Temple or Herod the Great.

A useful feature is the side flap on the front cover and back cover. You can bookmark what you’ve discovered to then take along to a small group to share or keep your place on the Egypt page while you’re reading Exodus. The whole experience of reading it, with full colour pages and browsable feel, make it completely user-friendly.

What it doesn’t do is partake in theological discussion – it presents the history, shows you the facts, quotes from historical sources, but holds back on deeper discussion (hence the ‘concise’ part of its title). I wouldn’t recommend this book to theology students, but I would to those looking to enrich their Bible reading with an historical side glance at the Bible.
