I am studying for my Reconciliation and First Communion so this book was very interesting. It covers the actual places mentioned in the Bible. It helps you understand the stories better.
For instance, when you hear the story of the Tower of Babel, what do you think? The book explains what it actually looked like. It was a lot bigger than I thought.
There is a map that helps you understand where the stories took place. A glossary for some of the new words and even a character cheat sheet.
Whether you are a Bible reader, this is interesting from a history point. It helps you understand the stories better.
