Book Review: The Chronological Study Bible

The Chronological Study Bible, is just that - a study Bible. It is not one that you will bring to a church service with you, because due to the nature and layout of the text - it would be hard to follow along.

This is an attractive Bible with a two tone navy and weathered tan cover. The text is an average size. The pages are thin, and that might make it difficult to write notes or highlight - the pages may stick together.

The study book contains the following features time charts, timelines, commentary, maps, scripture reference, glossary and index/concordance.

Overall, this is a unique study Bible for the historical scholar.

Book Review: Visual Theology

Visual Theology by Challies and Byers

Visual Theology, by Challies and Byers, displays a visual, infographic depiction of theology, biblical truths and historical sacraments.

The text had excellent visuals in order to make theological concepts understandable. The following topics were addressed:
1. Knowing who Christ is
2. Identifying with Christ
3. Having a relationship with Christ

Overall, this text is good for the visual person who wants a deeper understanding of the Bible.

I received this book form the publisher in exchange for a review.
