Review: The 5-Minute Visual Guide to the Bible by Michael Wittmer



Want to read the Bible but find it daunting?
Wish there was a guide to simplify the overall storyline?
Think it would help to “see” the people, places, and events?
The 5-Minute Visual Guide to the Bible is designed to make scripture easier to approach. . .and come alive when you do. This brand-new guide keys beautiful, full-color illustrations—classic paintings, landscape and artifact photos, maps and charts—to a helpful chronological time line of God’s Word.

Inside, you’ll find clear, succinct descriptions of

  • major divisions
  • events
  • people
  • places
  • doctrines

of God’s Word, along with numerous related references if you’d like to study further.
The 5-Minute Visual Guide to the Bible will point you to the most important, interesting, and inspiring aspects of scripture, helping you to get more from your time in God’s Word.

My Thoughts:

If you are looking to enhance your Bible study, devotions, or just want to study some of the main points of the Bible, then this book would be a very helpful reference. It is not a big book and it has 134 sections. Each section consists of usually two pages- a synopsis of a key Bible subject, main points, and a painting, photograph, map, etc. to enhance the reading material.

I found this book quite beautiful in the way it was set up. It is very concise and I enjoyed the artwork, maps that went along with the passages. This is not really for an in-depth study, I would use it more for another quick reference or as a starting point before going into greater depth. It is also a good way to get younger kids a quick study. Like it is called, it only really would take 5 minutes to go through and then let the kids talk about it and ask questions.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
