Book Sneeze Review — Nelson’s Complete Book of Bible Maps & Charts, Third Edition

Sometimes when I study my Bible, I wish I knew more about biblical history. I wonder about the Bible’s authors, and I try to understand specifically where in our modern world certain Bible events happened. So, when I had the opportunity to review The Third Edition of Nelson’s Complete Book of Bible Maps & Charts, I jumped at the chance. I’m glad that I did, because this excellent reference book has become my most used Bible study guide.

The maps and charts exceeded my expectations. They are beautifully illustrated and easy to understand. Best of all, they go beyond the basics. For example, look at this map showing the journey of the Ark of the Covenant and also the floor plan of Herod’s temple.



After you buy the book, you can go to the Thomas Nelson web site and download a free copy of the charts and maps for your non-commercial use. What a great idea for bible study groups and Sunday school classes!

All of the material is presented in a style that is interesting and easy to read. Along with the helpful visual aids, Nelson’s Complete Book of Bible Maps & Charts includes a brief overview of each book of the Bible, its possible author(s), an outline of the book and related dates, and its theme and literary structure. Readers will also find historical articles providing insight into Bible times.

This 500-page softcover book is an indispensable resource guide, perfect for Bible study and simple enough to use in a homeschool curriculum. The average retail price of around $14 is a bargain, especially because it includes the free downloads.

I highly recommend that you add The Third Edition of Nelson’s Complete Book of Bible Maps & Charts to your home library. It is one of those reference books that won’t stay on the shelf gathering dust.
