Meet the Author

Dr. Henry H. Halley was a well-respected author, minister, and Bible lecturer, dedicating his life to spreading his passion for Bible study and memorization.

    WARNING! DOES NOT WORK ON NOOK

    Great book, but once the layout goes to double column (on page 20) there are chunks of text missing. Sadly, after contacting B&N Customer Service three times (two emails and a phone call) I can't seem to convince them to give me a refund either. Not good.

    Great book. Works on nook!

    A valuable resource for anyone wanting to know and to love the Word of God.

    After reading another review that said the e-book version stopped working on the nook after page 20, I decided to download a sample and see for myself. Sure enough, the formatting became very difficult to understand once Halley brought in charts with side-by-side comparisons. HOWEVER: this does not mean it doesn't work! I found that changing the font to "Extra Small" reformatted the text perfectly. Even "Small" font was an improvement over "Medium."

    I have yet to finish the book, but after hours of study, I am thoroughly satisfied - with both its content and presentation. I'm so grateful this Christian classic is available for my nook!

    So glad I purchased this book

    the book is great - you can read it for a few minutes, or an hour. I love the matter of fact, easy to understand writing style. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to gain background information.

    Helpful info to make a Sunday school class more interesting

    As a former History teacher I often recomend this book to people who want to know and understand their Bible. The historical finds help make it interesting and also easier to understand the how and why about the events.
