Pictorial explanations of the Bible with helpful written comments.

Presenting a Historical Chronological Overview of the Bible

Old Testament: In 9 Modules or Sections

New Testament: In 8 Modules or Sections

A timeline of the Bible illustrated with over 500 images or pictures

Overall: Bibleview.org is a large, unique, multilingual web site which presents an overview of the Christian Bible. The English section has over 800 pages and over 500 images. It has been on the web since 2002.

Indexing: The entire text of the Bible is indexed using small, iconic, representations of the same picture which illustrates each biblical story. Starting from the home page for each language, these indicies allow the web surfer to access any Bible reading using only two or three mouse clicks. It is very slick, and the site authors are to be congratulated.

Each one comprises an explanatory introduction; the picture; and finally, the Bible reading itself. All of the pages are further supplemented by a paragraph or two of prose, which present the historical background, so as to complete the word picture. The introductory texts in the English language edition have been written taking particular care that the grammar and spelling are for readers for whom English is a second or third language.

Design: This web site is the result of a labor of love by a handful of enthusiastic and dedicated amateurs, with help from many others over years, all on a shoe string budget. The pages load remarkably quickly. It is very useable even on a slow dial-up connection.

Pictures: Most of the pictures are simple, photographic reproductions of a series of large poster-sized colored drawings which were created specially for the originator of the project when he was in the role of an itinerant preacher.

In Conclusion: This web site provides an effective Bible based introduction to Christianity. In common with most amateur projects it is a work in progress. Be prepared to see incremental changes on a continuous basis.
