This book was absolutely breathtaking. The photos that Mr. Miller chose were completely awes-inspiring.
Let me explain to you the set up of this Bible. I have had Bibles in the past that have had pictures and drawings, but none as beautifully done as this Bible.
First, at the beginning of each book, you have a beautiful picture that represents the story portrayed in that particular book. Also on the picture is a verse that can be used to describe the picture.
Then you have the storyline which is a brief summation of the plot of that book. That is followed by the location, time period, and the author of the book. One thing that I found interesting was the timelines that are at the beginning of each book. There are two parts to the timeline. The top half of the timeline is the Biblical timeline. It shows the order in which the events in that book take place. The bottom half of the timeline is the secular timeline. These are events that are noted by historians and scientists. This shows how closely related the two timelines are and where they might differ.
On the rest of the pages of each book, you will find the regular verses that you have come to know and love. As well, you will find pictures related to some of the more important verses. There are tons of great maps detailing where all these events took place.
When I received this book, I only got the ebook version. I can’t wait until April 1st to buy it when it gets published. I know that this will be a Bible that you will want to hold dearly in your family for years to come. I know that these past few weeks, it has made my daily Bible studies much more interesting.
