Review by: Paul Dare - January 21, 2011
I was recently provided a Bible Time Line from Rose Publishing in exchange for a written review. This is yet another very helpful resource produced by our friends at Rose.
All the standard bells and whistles come with this Rose Resource:
* High gloss
* Vivid illustrations
* Great attention to detail
* Ease of visual navigation
What I especially like about this time line is the integration of Biblical history with both Middle Eastern and world history time lines. Most Bible time lines I typically see only provide information, dates and people for events that occurred within the scope of Biblical history with little or no comparison to what was happening at the same time during histories not recorded within the sacred text. To be able to do a "stare and compare" of sorts between Biblical and other world events, is invaluable and helps put the student's study of biblical data into its proper context.
It looks like Rose has truly capitalized on their extensive research on other projects to really integrate that information, in the form of illustrations, pictures, and other graphic helps, within this time line.
To help keep the user on track, the time line lists the books of the Bible at the top of each era of history along the way. This is a great quick-reference tool to easily find where a particular book you're studying fits in the overall picture.
I only have one concern and its pretty minimal. The time line makes reference to the standard "ages" used by evolutionary scientists (Bronze Age, Iron Age, etc). I've recently been exposed to some evidence that seems to indicate these categories for eras of world history are not only not very helpful, but may even be completely false and essentially created by someone completely unqualified to do so. Check out Creation dot com for more on the "ages" debate.
Overall, a great resource. I've yet to meet a Rose publication I didn't like. The Bible Timeline pamphlet is certainly no exception.
