Amazing Bible Timeline ~ Review

I received the "Amazing Bible Timeline" to review for the The Old Schoolhouse Crew. The timeline starts with Adam and goes through 6000 years of Biblical history and world history.

From their website:
"You have over a thousand references at your fingertips. All the important
historical events of the main religions and world cultures are indexed and
outlined in one simple to understand format. It's color coded so you can
track families, nations and related events easily."

When you purchase the Timeline for $29.97 you can receive the "Interactive Maps of the Holy Land" and a digital "Amazing Bible Timeline" for free.

This timeline comes in a Mormon version also which I address.

When I received the timeline, I thought it was very confusing to look at. After looking over it for a while, things start to come into focus a little better. As I looked around time, I could see how the two different histories (Biblical and world) come together as they aught to. Unfortunately, we often learn about them separately.

There are some controversies surrounding this timeline. There are questions about Biblical accuracy and the fact that the timeline was created from a Latter Day Saints timeline. They do address this on their website. I, personally, am not comfortable with the connection to the LDS as I am a conservative Christian.

For more detailed information on inaccuracies you can read this review of the timeline: Rock(s) At My Feet.

Hmm... not sure how I feel about that. It LOOKS neat though. I need a new time-line-we mounted ours to our coffee table but then had to get rid of the table because of lack of space--

I think I'll think about it.

Meanwhile... YOU ROCK! Thank you for being such an encouragement to me ALWAYS!
