Two books in one: Carta's New Century Handbook together with a concise version of The Sacred Bridge: Carta's Atlas of the Biblical World. A solid addition to your personal reference shelf or a good choice for the classroom, these are based on the lastest, most up-to-date research. 280 pages, 9" x 12" hardcover.
A concise version of The Sacred Bridge: Cartas Atlas of the Biblical World (see below), is meant for use by all those who have a love for biblical history. College teachers will find it useful for undergraduates alongside the standard Carta Bible Atlas, which it complements by being more of a historical geography.
This concise version will augment the personal Bible study of all who seek a straightforward understanding of biblical history. Nevertheless, the reader will still have the sense that sacred history came about in a real world, a realm illumined by a multitude of discoveries and studies during the past two hundred years. Furthermore, the geographical dimension of the Bible accounts is being thoroughly presented. Every Bible student may thus put himself in the ancient reality and feel the events as they were experienced by the ancient Israelites and their neighbors.
This new historical handbook and atlas will enrich the Bible reading experience of a wide audience for whom the Sacred Canon enjoys special significance in their lives.
