The Bible has made a profound and lasting impact on more people in the world than any other book. The foundation of Jewish and Christian faiths, it relates not only to 4,000 years of a people but is a testament and message of God's love for all mankind It also contains some of the greatest stories that have ever been told - many familiar, some less so. This book presents the complete narrative of the Bible in a uniquely accessible format by putting it in clear, chronological form - from Creation to the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ and beyond. The books of the Bible, compiled as they were at different times, brought together often conflicting oral accounts, which sometimes makes it difficult to follow the sequence of events. This book has an attractive and easy-to use approach, with summaries of each event and carefully selected passages from the established King James Version of the Bible. It is accompanied by more than 500 traditional color illustrations. Clear, concise, this book follows the Bible story faithfully with no interpretation, making The Compact Timeline of the Bible essential for all who need, love and study the Bible.
