Oxford Bible Atlas 4th Edition Paperback Ed
This new fourth edition of the Oxford Bible Atlas, now with twenty-seven full-color maps and eighty-one color illustrations, has been thoroughly revised to bring it up to date with both the most recent biblical scholarship and the most modern discoveries in archaeology and topography.
This authoritative Atlas illuminates the landscape of the biblical world, allowing readers to better understand the geographical context in which the Bible emerged and which formed its background. The colorful, highly accurate maps capture the many ancient locales of the Bible's stories and carefully reflect the successive stages of the Bible's accounts, while specially chosen full-color illustrations bring the countries and their peoples to life. The Atlas covers everything from Genesis to the stories of David and Solomon, the trade routes of the ancient world, the vast empires of Alexander the Great and Rome, and the ministry of Jesus and the formation of the early Church. The accompanying text describes the land of Palestine, and its wider ancient Near Eastern and east Mediterranean settings. It outlines the successive historical periods, and describes the major civilizations with which Israelites, Jews, and early Christians came into contact. There is also an illustrated survey of the relevance of archaeology for the study of the Bible. Finally, the book includes a full chronology, suggestions for further reading, an index of place names, and a general index.
An essential resource for all students of the Bible, the Atlas provides a superb guide to the geography of the Holy Land throughout history, from the Exodus to New Testament times.
"It is 25 years since the third edition of the Oxford Bible Atlas. After a long wait we now have a new version, teeming with lots of splendid colour photos, amended maps, and a significantly revised text...[Curtis's] incisive text is every bit as worthwhile as the book's maps, which are terrific...deserves its place on every shelf."
"In Oxford Press's tradition, the atlas has superb maps--many of them three-dimensional, annotated, and in full color, along with photos, illustrations, charts, and diagrams to help the reader set the biblical narrative angainst the backdrop of Middle Eastern history and geography." --The Bible Today
