Overview

A truly innovative Bible Atlas that will help readers visualize the journeys, events, and locations of the Bible and will bring the Good Book to life in an entirely new way

This informative atlas is a highly inventive, user-friendly book, with lively and entertaining commentary, and peppered with little-known facts about the Bible. Nick Page applies the features of contemporary mapping styles to journeys and locations: following Paul's journeys on a Roman Road map complete with distance chart; linking Biblical sites to the panorama of Jerusalem today with 3D relief mapping; and locating the latest archaeological and historical research findings, Google Earth–style. 

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Accessible, beautifully produced and designed . . . a wonderful refresher course for those who may be over-familiar with the Bible and a gripping introduction for those to whom it is completely unknown."  —Methodist Recorder

Library Journal
Page, a popular author, speaker, and teacher specializing in biblical history, provides geographical context for people and events in the Bible with a chronological arrangement featuring nearly 140 full-color topical maps in several formats and color illustrations. Also included are time lines for biblical sites: Bethel, Mount Sinai, Kadesh Barnea, Jericho, Shechem, Gaza, Bethlehem, Gibeon, Samaria, Caesarea, Nazareth, Damascus, and Joppa. Additional timetables feature kings of Israel and Judah, Assyrian emperors, Persian emperors, Seleucid kings, Maccabean/Hasmonean leaders, and rulers of Judea. Detailed mapping traces Jesus's entry into Jerusalem; the Last Supper; and Jesus's arrest, interrogation, death, and resurrection appearances. Paul's journeys and final years are charted as well. A series of plans documents the evolution of the Temple in Jerusalem. The accompanying text is enhanced by chapter and verse citations from the Old and New Testaments. Indexes for places, people, and subjects assure ready-reference access to the wealth of information included in this atlas. It is similar in scope to the Oxford Bible Atlas (4th ed., 2009) but with many more maps. Other recently published biblical atlases for consideration include The IVP Atlas of Bible History (2006) and Ian Barnes's The Historical Atlas of the Bible (Chartwell Bks., 2009). BOTTOM LINE The One-Stop Bible Atlas is recommended for all public libraries and as a handy resource for Bible study groups and individuals.—Edward K. Werner, St. Lucie Cty. Lib. Syst., Ft.
