Can you imagine how large a map would have to be that included all of history – from Adam right down to 1982 and had everything from Bible events to secular world history?
It’s huge! And, there is not one practical spot on my walls to display it!
Unfortunately, we are not in a position to really utilize such a tool at this point in our homeschooling journey so I don’t have a lot of day-in and day-out type of anecdotes on this one. The timeline is laid out in a circular pattern and is color-coded according to the decendants of Noah – Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
I thought it was pretty neat to have the secular world history events alongside the Bible events. It gives you a bit of perspective on what was happening the world over. I also liked seeing the Bible events in chronological order because it is very intersting to me.
One note of caution – although this tool is referred to as a “Bible” timeline, there are also references to the book of Mormon which then renders that title as inaccurate. Because of that, one or two things my husband found on the map, and a few other mysterious issues uncovered by some of the other Crew members, we won’t be using the timeline regularly as part of our homeschooling. Just because it doesn’t work for us, though, doesn’t mean it couldn’t work for a family doing more studies in World History or Bible History or something along those lines.
