Nelson’s Complete Book of Bible Maps and Charts, 3rd Edition is a welcome enhancement to my personal Bible study. The layout of the text along with the maps and charts keep the information clear and concise. There is a consistency of structure throughout while remaining flexible to include the necessary information of a particular book of the Bible.
For example, the section on Ruth gives the background of the story, discusses the theme of redemption, the role of Ruth as an ancestor of Jesus as well as other details. The charts included in this section help to give an in-depth view of this story, and the detailed map clearly highlights the probable path and distance traveled by Ruth and Naomi. In the section on Acts there are separate maps of the journeys taken by Philip, Peter and Paul, a chart of the sermons written in the book of Acts, and other pertinent information.
Plus, there is the added bonus of downloading for free all the maps and charts included in this book for your own personal study, group study, or presentation. That’s a really nice feature. Overall, I think this book is a good addition for gaining more understanding of the Bible, its people, and biblical times.
