The Carta Bible Atlas prides itself on detailed graphic presentation and brief texts of the historical events spanning the biblical period and beyond. Founded on the Scriptures, and aided by scholarly research, newly discovered documentary evidence and archaeological finds the authors have been enabled to bring a fresh understanding of biblical history and geography.
This fifth revised and updated edition of the Carta Bible Atlas has been enriched by the addition of 40 new maps. Anson E. Rainey added maps and discussion on contemporary subjects surrounding the biblical narrative and R. Steven Notley further enhanced this volume by extending its historical reach to include the map of Palestine at the end of the third century as recorded by Eusebius, bishop of Caesarea.
The Carta Bible Atlas, by its original authors, Yohanan Aharoni and Michael Avi-Yonah, has consistently sought to provide precise details for each of the major events described in the Bible. As research has progressed and new discoveries have been made, the succeeding authors have revised previous material, adding fresh maps and texts to supply a more complete picture for many of the biblical narratives. This fifth edition will enrich the Bible study of all students, teachers and scholars who sincerely desire to bring the Bible down to earth. Rainey has added a number of maps from the broader Levantine history, placing the biblical events in a solid framework of Near Eastern culture and has thoroughly revised subsequent chapters. Notley has revised and enhanced the portions dealing with New Testament events. He has also extended the reach of the atlas to the beginning of the fourth century A.D. by adding a chapter on the Holy Land according to the Onomasticon of Eusebius, bishop of Caesarea.,
