Product Description

Taking a narrative approach, this full color atlas draws you into the rich resources available today on the history, geography and archaeology of the Bible and presents the latest findings in history and archaeology in a readable style. The world of the Bible deals with more than the modern state of Israel. Almost half of the events in the Bible are set outside this territory, and much of the Bible is addressed to people in other lands. Thus this atlas covers the world of the Bible, stretching from Spain to Iran, from Yemen to northern Greece. Trade widened these horizons even further to include India and possibly China and the east coast of Africa. The history of the Bible is played out on the stages of Egypt, Rome, Babylon and Persia. Many of the places in the ancient world are still important today, like Jerusalem, Damascus and Athens. These all play their role in the story that has shaped the imaginations and dreams of peoples and nations for centuries. Features:
  • Nearly 100 maps
  • Over 140 color photographs
  • Over 20 panoramic reconstructions and site plans
  • Numerous battle plans, smaller artworks and chronological charts
  • A gazetteer, Scripture index and main index
  • Full-color, large-format presentation

Editorial Reviews

"A very helpful companion volume for the study of biblical history. It combines an overview of biblical history with numerous maps, photos, and charts."
"Taking a narrative approach, The IVP Atlas of Bible History draws you into the rich resources available today on the Bible's history, geography and archaeology. The Atlas presents the latest findings in history and archaeology in a readable style that will appeal to anyone wanting to know more about the history of the Bible."
"This atlas is highly recommended to those interested in Bible studies as a class or on an individual level."
". . .a visually rich work brimming with high-quality photographs, reconstructions, maps, charts and sidebars."
"The printing and illustrations are of high quality throughout . . . a good teaching tool and companion for Bible reading and study."
"The Atlas presents the latest findings in history and archaeology in a readable style that will appeal to anyone wanting to know more about the history of the Bible."
"This volume is sure to be used and enjoyed; and, in so doing, biblical history will come alive for the reader. Highly recommended."
" The IVP Atlas of Bible History is an excellent resource, but it is more than that. I found myself reading it, fascinated by what I was learning."
"The implicit, relatively conservative faith that hovers in the background could be comforting to some and does not compromise the sound scholarship of the work."
"At a certain time and at a certain place our Lord Jesus rose from the dead. This atlas helps its readers better understand both the history and geography of this pivotal event, as well as that of the prior and subsequent events which led to and stemmed from it. It is this reviewer's opinion that we all would benefit from having this book in our personal libraries and in our church libraries."

    Very nice layout and simple to use, doesn't bog down into words. A good atlas for introduction to the lands of the Bible. The maps are fairly simple and not difficult to look at. A worthy atlas but I prefer the Holman Atlas over it.
