Overview


Battles of the Bible is a detailed and comprehensive examination of the military events of the bible, supported by the latest biblical and archaeological research. Beautiful maps chart the course of the campaigns, demonstrating the battle tactics and movements used in Ancient conflicts.

The biblical world was one of bloodshed and conflict, from the time of the Exodus, when Moses outmaneuvered Pharoh’s formidable army to take the Israelites away from their long-suffered slavery to the land that the Lord himself had promised them, to the terrible sacking of Masada by the Romans, ending the Jewish revolt against Hellenistic rule with great bloodshed.

The Bible’s many tales of military action provide the backdrop against which its most famous incidents took place: the fight between David and Goliath, the story of Samson and Delilah, Judith and Holofernes, and the journeys of Paul among so many others. The conditions and terrain, along with the military techniques and weapons available to the warriors of each of its various kingdoms, contributed to the epic clashes that shaped both the power and geography of the ancient world. This book is illustrated with full-color maps, moving artwork, and diagrams to explain the movement of troops and people through the Bible. This book has an internal spiral binding that allows it to lay flat as an excellent companion to any Bible study. It is both durable and attractive,  a perfect guide for any historian, and a strong addition to any church or Bible study library.
