About the Author
Halley's Bible Handbook was born out of the conviction of Henry H. Halley that everyone ought to read the Bible daily. From its first edition, a small give-away booklet of 16 pages, it has grown into an 864-page "almanac" of biblical information, used regularly by hundreds of thousands of laymen, teachers, and ministers. Halley's Bible Handbook contains more biblical information than any other book of its size. It has been a continuous best-seller through the years and has sold more than five million copies in many languages.
I have spent alot of time reading Halley's Bible Handbook. It has helped me get an overview of any book of the Bible I am reading. If you want to know the following about any book of the Bible ie... who wrote it, why was it written, to whom was it written, when it was written, the times and circumstances surrounding the writing and a general summary of the book then Halley's Bible Handbook is the one for you.
