This is a book I've wanted to read for a while, since I was interesting in understanding the more global context of scriptural events. The book does a fine job of that, but it's clearly written by a pastor whose writing can get a little goofy at times for a world history book. That's not to say that I don't agree with him, but the book feels a bit overly basic for a Christian who's been studying the Bible and world history for a long time.

The Bible in World History says on the front cover that it puts Scripture into a global context. It does just that in a most pleasant, friendly manner. History in school was such a heavy subject and I did poorly. I love that The Bible in World History isn’t intimidating at all.

Add to that the way Bible events are shown on a timeline with world events; many photos, illustrations and maps are included; conversational details about all abound; and both Bible AND history comes alive for me.

The Bible in World History by Dr. Stephen Leston is an illustrated book about Bible events and the world surrounding them. The chief question asked in the introduction is: “Where is history headed?” The author has a biblical perspective and answers this question by using Revelation chapters 19 through 21, saying that, ultimately, history will lead us to “a new world where God will establish His kingdom among people.”

Overview of what is happening in the world during biblical history. Written by a christian, so thankfully it is written from a believers standpoint.
Reminds me a lot of my high school history book. Same pictures too.

After a Bible study of Daniel, history became a little confusing, this books helps put world history together with Biblical history. I enjoyed the book and pictures very much.

I really learned so much from reading this book. It combined biblical history with secular history which is exactly what I wanted.

Awesome book about the history of the world with scripture "into a global context." Nice to finally see a book that puts secular history and world history on the same time line.
