Book Description:

The Ultimate Comprehensive Bible Timeline charts the years from Adam to Jesus, providing a precise timeline of people and events that can be used by Bible students, teachers and scholars. The book includes seven horizontal timelines and 40 charts to graphically illustrate significant chronological issues. Additionally, a year-by-year timetable from 1949 BC to 70 AD is provided so that the precise counting of the years can be visually verified. The timelines, charts and timetables graphically show how all significant people and events fit together. The book also provides all the references and explanations for charting only 4,000 years from Adam to 70 AD. It clarifies the most troubling chronological passages, providing readers all the needed information to arrive at their own conclusions. In addition, The Ultimate Comprehensive Bible Timeline explains confusing subjects, including: the Creation and Religious calendars, Noah’s Flood year, the Sabbath year and Year of Jubilee, the holy days and feasts, the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the approximate date for Job, the meaning of Ezekiel’s 430 years of sin, the complexities related to the genealogy from Noah to Abraham, and the difficulties in correctly charting the judges, Eli and Samuel and the kings. Furthermore, The Ultimate Comprehensive Bible Timeline reviews in detail the four most commonly promoted chronologies, explaining how each evolved and the differences between them.

About the Author
Rev. Jonathan Hall is a graduate of Grace College, Winona Lake, Indiana, and Ashland Theological Seminary, Ashland, Ohio. Since graduating in 1978, he has ministered at an independent Bible church and within the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches. The fellow-ship is made up of independent Bible-believing evangelical churches rooted in the Brethren movement, birthed in Germany by Alexander Mack in 1708. In 1995, Hall felt an intense desire to study thoroughly Bible chronology for several reasons. This included the desire to provide a coherent Bible-based timeline as a part of an overall consistent, historically accurate, biblical worldview. The Ultimate Comprehensive Bible Timeline is the result of that study.

This is a great reference for every Bible study I have done.  I can't remember how many times I tried to put Biblical dates in historical context.  Not only does this book give clear timelines, it also explains the when and why of the Jewish feasts - something I've always wanted to understand better.
Rev. Hall has done a remarkable job pulling together this Biblical timeline.  It is so important to have a Biblical worldview while studying scripture and learning world history.  The colorful charts are easy to understand and apply to your current Bible or history lessons. I will be using this wonderful reference for many years to come.

As a student of the Bible, I would prefer a hardbound copy of this book.  I find it more stressful to try to locate specifics in an eBook.

I received a complimentary ebook from Bookmasters and NetGalley for my honest review.
