The Baker Illustrated Bible Handbook is such an attractive and beautiful book, I just had to try my hand at providing a video review. The book is as useful and informative as it is visually stunning. Unfortunately, my video review will not be of a high enough quality to do justice to the book. But please watch and let me know what you think. You can click to watch my review on Youtube or Vimeo.

I think this book helped me in my journey through the Bible. When I would be beginning a new Book in the Bible, I would read about it first in this easy to read book. It helped me with application in passages and to follow the timeline.

The print is not too small. It is enjoyable to read with extras in the book to help add to the knowledge of history both during the OT and NT and what happed during the time between the two.

I gave this a 5 star because it really does help one's walk through the Bi
