Abstract The newest edition of the Oxford Bible Atlas teems with 27 stunning maps, 81 vibrant full-color illustrations, color photos, and a revised text that reflects the newest developments in biblical scholarship.
Full-page maps show the geography of the Bible's accounts in vivid detail. Sumptuous full-color illustrations and photographs bring entire regions and their peoples to life.
Editor Adrian Curtis' incisive and enthusiastic commentary takes into account interpretations by the best biblical scholars in the world. The text describes the land of Palestine, the ancient Near Eastern and east Mediterranean. Historical periods are clearly outlined, and the major civilizations with which the Jews and early Christians came into contact are described in vivid historical context. The Atlas also includes a fully illustrated survey of archaeology and its importance for bible study.
The Oxford Bible Atlas is an outstanding guide to the geography, history and archaeology of the Holy Land throughout biblical history, from Exodus to the New Testament. Lavishly printed in full-color on fine, sturdy paper and uniquely affordable, the Oxford Bible Atlas Fourth Edition is a perfect guide for history buffs and students of the Bible.
