Clarence Larkin Charts Redrawn
About The Charts
Nearly 20 years ago (1998) we were the very first website to place any of Clarence Larkin's charts on the internet. I always admired Larkin's charts for their Scriptural accuracy and ingenious design. After nearly 100 years they are still powerful images.
A few years ago we redrew some of Clarence Larkin's best charts in high resolution and in color using Corel Draw. It was quite a time consuming task and we were only replicating and enhancing them; we didn't have to design or verify them as Larkin did. He was a very capable man. I originally was going to redraw five charts and offer them as a set in our Bible Analyzer
program and also offer the high resolution editions to believers who could use them in various ways. However, I only got four completed and the project was set aside.
When we made the charts I "mapped" the coordinates of all the Bible references in them for Bible Analyzer so the text would popup on mouseover. This made the charts come alive with Scripture. In the meanwhile the Lord allowed us to develop our PopVerse Extension for the Chrome web browser that does much the same with web pages. PopVerse will automatically link Bible references on any web page and display the text of the references in a popup or separate window.
Recently I modified PopVerse so it will also work on mapped images tagged with Bible references as well as web pages, and this will make these "living" charts available on the web. A detailed study can be made by simply studying the charts along with the Bible text now made available via PopVerse. Here is an example,
All four mapped charts will be available in a reasonable viewing resolution below.
High Resolution Images
One reason we wanted to redraw the charts was to get them in a resolution suitable for modern technology. The original charts can only offer limited resolution. For instance, here is a section of the "Rightly Dividing..." chart as scanned from the available paper pages,
Notice the small, unreadable text, muddy shading and letters, and general small size. Here is the same section as found in the standard online images we offer below,
The text is still somewhat small, but it is readable and the color helps distinguish separate areas. Now here is the same section from our high resolution image,
This is much larger (5000px in width) and supplies enough detail for any purpose from printing to projector usage. (They can be sliced up into separate images for use as a teaching series, for instance).
We offer these high resolution images as PNG files for $5 each.
