Overview

God's biblical interaction with man has centered around specific geographical places and unique historical contexts. Knowledge of the geographical area and historical events provides the believer with information critical to a better understanding of Scripture. This full-color, carefully-organized biblical resource introduces the land and times of the Bible in a clear, attractive, and easily-read format, exploring the land of Palestine within its larger historical and geographic setting.

Noted expert in biblical history Tim Dowley traces Old Testament history from the time of the patriarchs through the Israelites' return from Babylonian exile. He then presents a brief look at world and Jewish national events that occurred between the Old and New Testaments, setting the stage for Jesus' coming. His treatment of the New Testament era includes an overview of Judaism, various political climates, and the ministry of Jesus from His birth to His ascension. Also included are the earliest days of the church—its birth and spread under the ministry of the apostles.

The Kregel Bible Atlas contains more than one hundred colorful maps and photos of Bible places and archaeological sites pertinent to the entire Bible.

Editorial Reviews

Ashland Theological Journal
An atlas is essential for any serious student as Scripture assumes the reader has a certain knowledge of the terrain, climate, soils, and economy of the region. It is impossible to fully understand inferences or meanings without this basis. The text is complete in its coverage of geographical features and major events in the Bible, and each page is full of maps, colorful photographs, summarizing charts and clarifying diagrams. This book is an excellent companion for the Bible student and lay person alike. Its size and price make it affordable, and its coverage makes it a valuable addition to a home or church library.

I always love checking out the different reference materials that come across my desk for review. Especially ones like this that are so full of vivid picture that bring Biblical history to life for me. I loved that this pictorial atlas went further than simply exploring the world of the Old Testament and that of the New Testament, but also looked at the ancient world, the people, the vents, and anything else that it could examine that covered those silent years between the two testaments. The maps were wonderful as well.
