This is a fun and informative book. If you want overviews of certain elements of Scripture, the graphics and charts in this  book are super-helpful and creative. Want a quick glimpse, harmonization, comparison, doctrinal threads, or depiction of some Biblical list, group, or data, this book has most of them. Clean and Unclean Animals, for instance. Solomon's wealth. Parables of Jesus. Names of God. The Feasts. The Prophets. The Life of David. An assessment of topics in the psalms. They are here, and much more. They even have a chart on Promised children and God's intervention, so the book is pretty creative. The book pretty much (but not quite) goes through certain aspects of the Bible.

It really is a good book but I really wonder if it wouldn't be more useful if the dimensions of the book was larger. Seriously, the print-size for this book makes it virtually useless for kids or for older folks with eyesight difficulties. I suppose a pastor with a good copy machine that enlarges copies could make use of this book to its fullest. But then again, there are the color choices. This is a full-color book, so the charts are colorful and the data of the charts are precise. But....But...Some of the colors chosen were plain wrong and they disappear when looked at under the wrong light.  I have great eyesight but even I had to bend really close to see the pages. Not good for the back all that bending over.

I gave the book to my hubby and said, "Okay, tell me what you think about this book?"
His first response: "Well, i know i don't like the tiny type."

So, while i would recommend this book...;I caution  buyers to only buy it if their eyesight is good or if they have a good enlarging copy machine.

I received this book free from the publisher.
