Bible Study Tools (part 5) - Handbooks

A Bible Handbook is designed to give concise background information on each book of the Bible. It is arranged according to the books of the Bible.

Halley’s Bible Handbook
Edited by Henry Hampton Halley; published by Zondervan. Twenty-third edition was published in 1962. Contains Photographic Illustrations, Maps, Archeological Notes, and various pieces of information. Most noted for featuring archeological discoveries.

Wilmington’s Bible Handbook
This handbook is huge. It is a compilation of the notes of Dr. H. Wilmington who taught at Liberty University. It is divided into two main sections, the first is a Chronological survey of the Bible, and the second part is a treatment akin to systematic theology. Just a wealth of information and highly useful outlines. Actually the more I think about it, I am referring to "Wilmington's Guide to the Bible." It should be noted that his handbook is different from what I am referring to. Also, Dr. Wilmington has a book called the complete Bible list. Very interesting.
