Halley's Bible Handbook review

Halley's Bible Handbook has:

  •  An Abbreviated Bible Commentary
  •  Archaeological Discoveries
  •  How We Got Our Bible
  •  An Epitome of Church History



Halley's Bible Handbook was born out of the conviction of Henry H. Halley that everyone ought to read the Bible daily.  From its first edition, a small give-away booklet of 16 pages, it has grown into an 864-page "almanac" of biblical information, used regularly by hundreds of thousands of laymen, teachers, and ministers.

Halley's Bible Handbook contains more biblical information than any other book of its size.  It has been a continuous best-seller through the years and has sold more than five million copies in many languages.

Halley On His Handbook:

"...It is not designed as a text book, but rather as a handy brief manual, of popular nature, for the average Bible reader who has few or no commentaries on the Bible.  However, many Bible classes use it; and many accomplished Bible scholars, possessors of large libraries, have been most cordial in acknowledging its helpfulness.  Its usefulness may be enhanced by looking through it a good deal, so as to become familiar in a general way with its contents...

...it is certainly as readable as the average newspaper...

...In the main, it is a book of FACTS, Biblical and historical.  I have sought to avoid featuring my own opinions on controversial subjects...

Maps, Notes, Archaeology, History:

...By including, along with the Notes on Bible Books, an Outline of Archaeological Discoveries which bear on the Bible, and an Epitome of Church History, connecting Bible times with our own times, I have hoped to make the book a rather complete, though small, compendium of practical information, which Christians, who wish to keep themselves intelligent and well-instructed about their religion, may find useful and helpful...

...I have tried to include enough maps to make it easy to correlate events and places..."

--from the "Foreword" by Henry H. Halley.
