    Best Bible atlas on the market !

    I did some research before buying a good Bible atlas, and this one consistantly floated to the top of the pile. I purchased it, and after reading it I can say that without a doubt it has done far more to further my understanding of the Bible than any other book. Fantastic maps and pictures, but so much more. It is as much a concise history of the Near East as it is an atlas. It is presented chronologically, from pre-history through AD 135, and does a wonderful job of walking you through the political, ecomonic, religious and cultural highlights of each era. I bought it as a reference, but read it cover to cover. A prized reference and a must buy for serious bible study.

    Excellent Resource for Home & School

    I was introduced to the Holman Bible Atlas as a student and am now using it as a teacher. The maps are arranged in chronological order following the order of the books of the Bible. Geography, history, local background and culture and biographical information along with color pictures, charts and additional essays enhance the text explaining each significant segment in Biblical and world history all in language which is easy to read and understand. Maps are both topographical and geographical, and are easy to read with keys and Biblical references. An interesting feature is the timeline that runs continuously across the top of each page throughout the book helping you to correlate the map and its time period with the people of the Bible. This book is an excellent reference book for the home, school libraries and the classroom. The essays are great for additional reading to suppliment Bible curriculum. This book is also a great asset for personal Bible study since it follows the Bible in its layout and chronological order. It will help you to understand the lands of the Bible and the role geography plays in the world of Biblical people. Its a wonderful tool for underscoring the fact that the Bible is about real people in real places.
