Overview

Combining computer graphics and satellite photography with the skills of artists, archaeologists, historians, and theologians, Great Events of Bible Times offers fascinating insights into some of the best-known stories ever told. More than 50 events are described, ranging from such Old Testament favorites such as the Flood and the Ten Commandments to the New Testament happenings–the Nativity, the Crucifixion, and the Resurrection–that are the foundation of Christian belief.

Each event is illustrated by means of the technique that brings it alive most effectively. The computer re-creates events in which terrain and topography are essential to understanding, as in the battles of Beth-Horon and Masada, and in the path taken by Jesus on the Way of the Cross. To do this, the computer translates a contour map into a three-dimensional graphic for an illustrative reconstruction of the event.

Satellite photographs provide an equally novel approach. By combining these with information from archaeological finds, historical documents, and the Bible itself, the book traces the probable route of the Exodus, the conquest of Canaan, and also the epic missionary journeys of Paul and other Apostles.

Drawing on the wealth of new archaeological and historical evidence that has come to light in recent decades, a distinguished team of consultants and authors brings alive key Bible events in vivid detail. Full-color reconstructions enable you to feel what is was like to be in Jerusalem, Babylon, Persepolis, Nazareth, Ephesus, or Qumran when history was in the making. Maps and diagrams, photographs and drawings of people, places, and finds, all provide a rich background to each epoch making event.
