Product Description

The new Then and Now: Bible Map Atlas includes features that will satisfy the needs of students, pastors, or people interested in understanding the Scriptures better. The book includes:
  • Bible maps with clear plastic overlays of modern-day cities and countries and show you where Bible places are located today
  • More than 120 full-color accurate and updated topographical maps
  • Many maps include notes and arrows to show details and routes of people and events
  • Fascinating insights explain how geography and politics affected the lives of Bible people like Abraham. Moses, Joshua, David, Esther, and many more.
Along the way you will come to understand Bible places and the people who lived there!

The exciting vents in the Bible took place thousands of years ago--in a culture very different from today's modern world. Author Dr. Paul Wright has lived in Jerusalem for many years and teaches about the culture, politics, and geography of the Bible. With a wonderful gift for storytelling, Paul opens up the world of the Bible in ways that will help you understand the stories of beloved Bible characters.

  • See how David's clever understanding of geography and politics led to his marriage with Ahinoam of Jezreel
  • Discover why Naomi, in the book of Ruth, couldn't just move back to Bethlehem after her husband's death and farm his land again.
  • Find out why Moses and the children of Israel took the long route from Egypt to the Promised Land, rather than the direct route

    The Rose Then and Now Bible Map Atlas with Biblical Background and Culture is not an easy-to-read volume that one could devour in a matter of hours. The text is complex, incorporating cross-references and annotations where appropriate as well as maps of the Holy Land as it was in ancient times with clear overlays showing modern political divisions and nomenclature of the same areas. There are many illustrations, timelines, and photographs liberally sprinkled thoughout this book. The text is divided into 24 chapters, the last 22 of which focus on important characters we meet in the Bible. The first two chapters focus on the background information. The book also features a comprehensive introduction, bibliography, and index.

    I normally base my reviews on the full reading of a book, but in this case, the formulaic construction makes the full reading unnecessary to evaluate the quality of this publication. Despite the complexity of this book, it is worthy of the time and attention required to study the material. I do not recommend attempting to read this volume from cover-to-cover like you would read a novel. Instead, as you study Genesis, read the first two chapters of this atlas. Then move on to the chapters featuring Moses and Joshua as you study Exodus, etc. The chapters do not need to be read in the order they appear in this book. The information concerning the Biblical Background and Culture contained in this volume will greatly enhance your understanding of the Bible.

    Due to the complexity of the material, I do not recommend this book to those under the age of 17, but for anyone mature enough to understand the material, I would highly recommend this book, especially if one is interested in doing in-depth studies of biblical topics or persons.

    While this volume was purchased by me, I do sometimes accept books free in exchange for review. Nevertheless, whether I purchase a book or whether I receive it in exchange for review, all opinions stated in the review remain mine, and I never accept financial compensation for posting reviews.

    Would you like a fine Bible Atlas written by someone who has been immersed in the lands of the Bible? Then the Rose Then and Now Bible Atlas is a great option for you. Substantial at 272 pages, yet accessible even for newer Bible students, we have a real asset here.

    Perhaps you saw the earlier Rose Then and Now Bible Maps. I always felt it was more of a Sunday School item than one for the serious Bible student, though the modern overlays are a brilliant idea. Frankly, there were just too few of them and I would have preferred a different scale at times. There are about the same number of overlays, but we have a fine atlas too. Really, the overlays are just a nice addition to the atlas itself.

    What we have now is Rose Publishing joining the big boys in the atlas world. What is unique to this volume among the atlases out there is the historical detail given. Paul Wright does a great job of relating the biblical narrative as he progresses incorporating well the geographic details. The history begins with the Patriarchs. There is no mention of Adam or Genesis 1-11, pro or con. My guess is that there is little real geographic knowledge of those times.

    Still, Scripture pervades the volume. In the chapter on Jesus, He is described as God in human form. The entire atlas takes a historical approach. There are no sections on parts of the Bible like, say, the Minor Prophets. Their time period is covered in the historical flow, just not the books themselves. Most atlases take the other approach, but I am glad to have one from this distinct vantage point.

    The maps themselves are from Carta, which is the gold standard of Bible maps. The pictures are satisfactory and the maps plentiful enough to go along with a rich text. Most people just try to get one quality Bible Atlas. This volume is a contender for the Bible Student.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.

    Do you read the Bible and wonder what the weather was like, what type of soil the Israelites had to contend with or where exactly did these specific events take place? At a glance the Rose Then And Now Bible Map Atlas reveals these mysteries. Although the Israelites lived centuries ago, their lives and times become a reality when peering through plastic overlays of modern day maps on top of biblical maps centuries ago.

    The Old Testament timeline cleverly combines Bible history, time span markers and year markers. The Bible books are displayed according to the historical settings, not when the books were written.

    One of the maps that fascinated me the most was the one on Culture and Commerce in the Ancient Near East. In addition to the different trade routes, the map displays the different commodities by way of tiny images, e.g. for horse breeding, camel breeding, and where different mines were.

    The route travelled by Abraham took him through fertile lands with abundant water as well as the hard limestone and hill countries of Israel. His daily challenges to keep his tribe safe, such as finding grazing for his livestock, digging wells for water, and protecting it, becomes a reality with the different land context maps displaying the geography, the topical surfaces, and climate.

    Another example of the Bible Map Atlas's uniqueness is a map highlighting events in the life of John, for example where he met Jesus for breakfast. Each chapter written on historical people and events contain relevant maps, tables, Bible passage references, and images.

    I highly recommend, the Rose Then And Now Bible Map Atlas for its uniqueness, researched information, relevance, and picturing the life and times of the Bible. It draws you in; you will spend hours in these pages without realizing it.

    Rose Publishing provided me with an advanced reader copy.
