Candle Bible Handbook by Terry Jean Day and Carol J. Smith; Editied and Revised by Dr. Tim Dowley

Kregel Publications has come out with a revised version of their Candle Bible Handbook this past March.  If you are looking for a Bible Study tool for your kids to go along with their Bible devotional books, this would be a great addition to your library.  This book is for children ages 8-12 years old.  This Bible handbook gives an overall view of how the Bible is organized into different categories (History, Poetry, Major and Minor Prophets, etc.).   Then, an overview of the Old Testament is given along with a timeline of major events.  Following this overview, the handbook gives information on each book of the Bible by including FAQ, an outline, maps and concludes with study questions.  The New Testament does the same thing, but also includes a section on the life of Christ.  After all the books of the Bible have been discussed, the book concludes with several different sections: Big Ideas in the Bible, Promises Made in the Bible, 50 Very Important Passages, and Who's Who in the Bible.

I was excited to received this book for my kids.  This book is called a paperback book, but is made out of heavy duty cardstock.  The pages are beautifully done with great graphics and pictures that are full of color and will capture a child's attention.  I love all the maps!  This can help children picture where the events have taken place in the world.  I think this resource will be a great addition to our family Bible reading time.

***I received this book free from Kregel Publications in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
