Linda Finlayson has a great gift for this kind of explanation, and her work, supplemented with delightful color illustrations and charts, makes this an ideal gift for young students of scripture — or for those who have the privilege of guiding children in their exploration of God’s Word.

No doubt, this is a book you will go to again and again in answering your children’s many questions about God’s saving message. Parents, get yourself a copy. You cannot go wrong when you invest in this kind of spiritual instruction for your children. The rewards will outlive you!
Conrad Mbewe, Pastor of Kabwata Baptist Church and first Chancellor of the African Christian University, Lusaka, Zambia
It is no small challenge to wrap our minds around the thousands of years of history that fall between Genesis 1 and Revelation 22. Linda Finlayson's God's Bible Timeline is a noble and effective attempt to help us do that very thing. Using text, graphics, and timelines, it seamlessly describes and displays both the great story and the wider context of the Bible.

Our Triune God reveals Himself through His mighty deeds in history. This book provides a wonderful series of timelines, maps and other visuals to help us place those events in their historical and geographical context. Along the way we can follow God’s redemptive plan in Christ, from Eden right through to the spread of the early church.
Sharon James, Social Policy Analyst, The Christian Institute
This lovely and well-organized book will be a great help for people young and old to fit together the pieces of the history of God’s saving works so that they can see more clearly what God has accomplished in his Son.
Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
This resource is a wonderful tool that has the potential to guide many through God’s Word in a way that will help them see the whole picture of God’s revelation. The church is once again in Linda’s debt.
David Hogg, Senior Pastor, Christ Baptist Church, Raleigh, North Carolina
Here is a ‘Big Book’ on big stuff. Paul says that God’s ways are ‘untrackable’—and they are, but he has left some of his ‘tracks’ in redemptive history and Linda Finlayson has pursued them in this attractive, colourful, vibrant tome, in which she has pulled together the strings of biblical history and in such concise form has placed them in your lap.
Dale Ralph Davis, Respected Author and Old Testament Scholar
... a real treasure ... I like to have an organizational picture in my head when I’m introducing people to the riches of Scripture. This book helps me with that, and I think it will help you too.
Ligon Duncan, Chancellor and CEO, Reformed Theological Seminary
This book looks to be a most suitable help for all wanting to understand the flow of God's salvation history.
