Product Description

The design, construction, and format of the ESV Bible Atlas is stunning. The ESV Bible Atlas is made with a sturdy hardback cover, and designed so that pages can lay flat without detaching from the spine--always a good sign of quality construction. An atlas cannot, obviously, present its maps, pictures, and charts well if it does not easily lay flat without damaging the spine.

The ESV Bible Atlas then combines its durable construction with thick, overlaid, and glossed pages that allows its maps, images, and charts to stand out brilliantly from the page. From top to bottom the book is well made, and will serve its purposes for years to come.

But beyond its design, the content of the ESV Bible Atlas is likewise exceptional. Featuring historical, modern, and scientific maps produced by advanced satellite technology the Atlas brings the Biblical world alive in ways that no other atlas has done before. The maps are brilliant in color, and provide detailed locations with precision and while never overloading anyone map with too much information. Map topics range from average monthly rainfall, to modern excavation sites, and from David's Kingdom to today's disputed territories.

The written content of the ESV Bible Atlas is also outstanding, and leads the reader through the historical, modern, and scientific geography of the biblical lands. Written by and arranged by one of today's leading OT scholars, and a professional cartographer, this atlas is both visually appealing and highly informative

A number of Charts, Appendixes, and Indexes also accompany the atlas including:

  • Timeline of Biblical History
  • The Kings of Israel and Judah
  • The Herodian Dynasty
  • Place-Name Indexes for Historical and Regional Maps
  • Index of Known Biblical Sites
  • Scripture Index
  • Special Articles
  • Illustration Index
  • Map and 3d Map Index


All the key methods of presenting Bible geography and history are here, including more than 175 full-color maps, 70 photographs, 3-D re-creations of biblical objects and sites, indexes, timelines, and 65,000 words of narrative description. The atlas uniquely features regional maps detailing biblically significant areas such as Egypt, Mesopotamia, Italy, and Greece. It also includes a CD with searchable indexes and digital maps, and a removable, 16.5 x 22-inch map of Palestine.

Academic Peer Reviews

A remarkably beautiful and rich resource for historical, geographical, and archaeological background material that will deepen our understanding of each section of the Bible and increase our appreciation of the Bible's amazing historical accuracy.”
—Wayne Grudem
Research Professor of Bible and Theology, Phoenix Seminary, Phoenix, Arizona

“This Atlas is a wonderfully illustrated tool to aid the layperson, student of the Scripture, or pastor who wants to dig deeper and gain new insights and appreciation of the setting, context, and message of the Bible. The text is easy to follow, pictures are brilliant, and maps are incredibly useful as the reader moves through the related narratives. I highly recommend this marvelous resource.”
—James K. Hoffmeier
Professor of Old Testament & Near Eastern Archaeology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

“During the 44 years I served as a college professor I used many good atlases. However, I have never seen one comparable to this in the breadth of material, the depth of coverage, and the outstanding quality of its impressive and abundantly illustrated maps and photos of Bible lands.”
—John McRay
Professor Emeritus of New Testament and Archaeology, Wheaton College Graduate School, Wheaton, IL

“I had the privilege of being involved in the production of drawings based on the latest research for the ESV Study Bible. It is a joy to see these drawings plus the original ESV Study Bible maps, woven together with numerous new maps, brilliantly evocative photographs and useful indexes to make up the new Crossway Bible Atlas. This volume will become an indispensable companion for Bible students, fulfilling every expectation you might have of such a tool. Particularly innovative is the use of terrain imagery to facilitate the reader’s understanding of such Biblical viewpoints as that of Abraham from Hebron over the cities of the plain or Moses from Mt. Nebo.”

Archaeological Consultant
