on 8/13/2017 Bible Overview
I can’t express how helpful this book is. Bible Overview started with great general facts about the Bible, letting you know how the entire Bible came to be the canonized book that it is today and how to get the best out of the Bible while you study it. It gave me a solid starting point and let me know what to expect as I studied the holy books. I was also delighted to find detailed information for each individual book explaining the purpose of the book, an outline of the key teachings and events, a background on the author of that book, an approximate date for the book with an illustrated timeline, the setting, themes, key verses, and a way to tie the presence of Jesus in each book. This book is not a Bible itself, but meant to help you understand each book in the Bible as you read and study. I would recommend reading the overview for the Bible book in Bible Overview before and during the study of each book in the Bible. **Rose Publishing has provided me with an advanced reader copy.

I discovered “Bible Overview” after stumbling onto the Rose Publishing site. When I got a chance to review the book, I was drawn into it from the introduction! As I moved through its pages, I found its engaging text easy enough to understand for a novice while also being able to hold the interest of a seasoned Bible scholar. The beginning of the overview points out important keys to keep in mind as one moves along the exciting, transformational journey of examining the word of God. Each book of the Old and New Testament is illustrated by a descriptive summary that is accompanied by an artist rendering or photograph. Images of artifacts are peppered throughout the text, bringing concepts and cultural themes to life. Significant terms and phrases are defined in a way that creates a seamless flow in the content. Easy-to-read maps and graphics allow the reader to connect deeply to the events. Rose Publishing has provided me with an advanced reader copy for review purposes.
on 5/15/2013 Great book for concise summaries.
The Rose Bible Overview is a good book for a quick study of a certain book. It portrays interesting facts with time-lines, pictures, side notes, charts, outlines and maps. This book gives facts about background, key verses, main themes, and application. One thing I thought was really cool was how the book showed Christ in each book overview, Genesis - Revelation. It helps us get a greater grasp of who He really is. In my opinion, this book would be great for new Christians as well as older ones, as it is a good study tool and still gives basic info for younger people to understand. One other thing is it shows the purpose of the book. This is helpful to those who may only see words, not getting it's real meaning. This helps people look past the genealogies and such to find the real meaning behind the story. God could certainly use this book to show one something he / she hadn't seen before. Although one could find the same information regarding a certain book by self-study, This helps.
on 2/19/2013 Excellent Resource
"Bible Overview" is a Bible reference book that gives a summary of each book of the Protestant Bible and also explains how it relates to the overall themes of the Bible--like how God interacts with mankind and mankind's need for a savior. Overall, I found this book interesting, informative, and an easy enough read that tweens, teens, and adults could all get a lot out of it. This would make a great youth group or new believer Bible study on understanding the Bible as a whole. Rose Publishing permits making "up to 300 copies of individual pages from the book for classroom use." I received a .pdf copy of this book for review purposes from the publisher.
on 8/28/2012 Rose Bible Overview
Rose Publishing produces quality Christian books with informative easy-access detail gleaned from charts, graphs, overviews, timelines and more. Their vibrant, glossy pages enhance and bring to life stunning portrayals of people, places and events. The Rose Bible Overview is one of their best efforts to date, framed with concise descriptions of authors, themes and backgrounds to key verse summaries that teach Bible basics “at a glance” from two to six page overviews. Rose Bible Overview is especially useful for individual, home or group bible studies with easy-to-reproduce handouts. On a scale of one to ten, Bible Overview is an eleven plus!
