What the Bible Is All About by Henrietta Mears.

It's one of the best Bible Handbooks I've ever used.

From the back cover:

With more than 500 full-color photos, illustrations, maps and charts, What the Bible Is All About(r) is the most interesting and user-friendly Bible handbook ever! A perfect introduction to the Bible for new believers, yet this valuable resource is comprehensive enough for pastors, Sunday School teachers and seminary students. You will appreciate the easy-to-use, visually engaging format as you witness the Bible unfold before your eyes.  Discover What the Bible Is All About – the world's best-selling Bible handbook!

Dr. Henrietta Mears was one of the great Bible teachers of the 20th Century. As Christian education director at First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood, she built one of the largest Sunday Schools in the world and wrote curriculum that was in such high demand that to publish it, she founded Gospel Light in 1933. Such notable Christian leaders as Richard C. Halverson, Luis Evans, Jr. and Bill Bright were among her students. Dr. Billy Graham has said, “She is certainly one of the greatest Christians I have ever known.”

My old pastor, Earl Palmer, was also one of the many great Christian leaders of today who were mentored by Henrietta Mears. He spoke very highly of her, and her book is a classic. I'd love to see it in Logos format!
