  • 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

    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.

    Another wonderfully made, helpful and encouraging resource from Rose Publishing. The Rose Then and Now Bible Map Atlas is a beautifully hardbound volume that belongs on the shelf of any Bible student today. This 272 page text book by PhD Phil H. Wright is packed with beautiful color photographs of the Middle East along with over 100 full color maps. There are eight (if I counted them all) plastic overlays that give the reader a great compare and contrast view of ancient cities and regions with modern day countries and capitols.

    Dr. Wright uses the flow of the books of the Bible to shed insight on the lay of the land and it's importance during each epoch of Biblical history. Scholarly and robust articles on the patriarchs, Moses, David, Jesus, Paul and more, explore the details of each period of history and paint a sweeping visual survey of the Bible for the reader.

    This is a great book and would make a wonderful gift to a high school graduate, heading off to Bible college. It would also make a great coffee table book for any Christian family.

    I can highly recommend another great publication from the team at Rose Publishing. Get your Then and Now Bible Atlas today.

    Ebook maps are so small they are illegable & cannot expand as can the rest of the print. I have a Samsung 10.1 Tablet. I have found that a number of ebook inserts in cbd's ereader are illegable so I am not sure if its the reader or publishers fault. If the maps are illegable there is no point buying the atlas. CBD kindly refunded purchase price.

    Shortly after I became a Christian, my dad gave me a Bible atlas. I loved it. Understanding the geography of the Bible has helped my personal and professional Bible study ever since. So when I received my copy of the Rose Then and Now Bible Map Atlas (With Biblical Background and Culture) by Paul H. Wright (Rose Publishing, 2012), I couldn't wait to dive in.

    In many ways Wright's atlas is like all others. It has the standard maps of the Holy Land depicting the travels and conquests from the Bible. It also has detailed Jerusalem city maps from the time of Christ, and the requisite charts detailing the reigns of the Herods, the Caesars, and the various governors of Judea.

    But that's where the similarity ends. Wright's atlas has so much more than the standard atlases on the market. It includes overlays for many of the maps that show modern borders and cities. It also includes many present-day photographs, as well as illustrations and timelines. But the greatest feature is the running background and cultural commentary which makes it read more like an illustrated history book than a standard Bible atlas.

    The information and commentary is organized according to the central figure of the period: from Abraham in Genesis to John, the author of Revelation. This makes Wright's atlas particularly helpful for students trying to put their Bible study in the proper context. A thorough index in the back assists in this as well.

    Wright's atlas is not perfect, however. At times I found it a bit too thorough, as he includes many smaller details that are probably best reserved for a true history book. But even with this shortcoming, I can recommend it as being worth the investment. It is a good tool to have on the shelf.
