Chronological Guide to the Bible

Chronological Guide to the Bible is just what the title suggests, a chronological guide.  If you are interested in reading the Bible chronologically this is a good place to start.  It is a good jumping off point and if you just want general information. 
This guide divides the Bible up into 9 epochs.  Within each epoch it gives a general overview that includes archeology, the peoples and groups and Biblical literature.  It also gives you a reading guide with those little boxes that you can check off if you so wish.  There is a brief overview of each of the books of the Bible and then a brief description of the major events that happen in that book. 
I think that this is the perfect book for you if you (like myself) have never read the Bible in chronological order and if you are also interested in a little bit of history and commentary along with it.  The sections are just enough to wet your appetite and if you would like to explore further it is a good place to know where to start. 
The guide is colorful and has pictures throughout that depicts that particular part of the Bible.
I reviewed this book as part of Booksneeze, the blogger reviewer program of Thomas Nelson.  I received no payment for this review.
