Long a trusted resource for scholars and Bible students, this terrific atlas has been updated and expanded to reach a broader audience. All of the graphics are brand new, and every page was substantially rewritten, updated, and expanded to bring you more than one hundred thousand words that provide useful commentary throughout. Superior photography, comprehensive geographic detail, award winning maps, distinctive theological discussion of geographical matters, and thorough documentation in the form of new indexes and 800+ endnotes set this atlas apart from the field. The New Moody Atlas of Bible Lands is an invaluable asset to Sunday school and home school teachers as well as seminary and Bible college students.
"The Bible describes God who acts in history, in space, and time. The New Moody Atlas of the Bible is the best resource I know to acquaint readers of the Bible with the 'space' of God's acts. Beitzel's writing is interesting and clear, and the maps and illustrations are outstanding. Every reader of the Bible should have this book."
- Tremper Longman III, PhD, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College
"The New Moody Atlas of the Bible by Barry Beitzel is an astonishingly rich resource for any student of the Bible. It is packed with clear and helpful maps, accurate and readable descriptions of the various lands that play a role in the Bible, and thorough and sensible discussions about debated issues. The reader is provided not only with detailed geographical information, but with a wonderful outline of the story of the Bible."
- Douglas J. Moo, PhD, Blanchard Professor of New Testament, Wheaton College
"This revision of Barry Beitzel's earlier volume preserves its strengths while offering numerous improvements: additional maps with improved labeling and graphic features, subject headings, updated discussions of controversial matters, and new material. This useable and practical atlas offers just he right amount of information to enable the reader to comprehend that time and space context is essential to biblical interpretation."
- John N. Oswalt, PhD, Research Professor of Old Testament, Wesley Biblical Seminary
"The New Moody Atlas of the Bible by Barry J. Beitzel is a superb reference work, with 118 clearly detailed maps. The author's text is quite comprehensive and is especially insightful in his detailed discussion of numerous passages of the Old Testament. Scholars will also find a treasure trove of information in the notes."

stephanie5 Stars Out Of 5January 12, 2010stephanieI don't think I could be any later on publishing this review, but I didn't want to forget to thank Moody Publishing for sending me a copy of The New Moody Atlas of the Bible. Long a trusted resource for scholars and Bible students, this terrific atlas has been updated and expanded to reach a broader audience. The new Bible atlas contains more graphics, 20% more maps and an additional forty-eight pages! Barry Beitzel has blended the topographical and historical in multicolored maps that accurately reflect evangelical Christianity. Pages of timeless information aid in sermon preparations, Sunday school lessons, or personal Bible study. The unique high quality maps, fact-filled text, and new additions make this the best Bible atlas available today.This is something that I think is going to be invaluable to our family for years. As a social studies education major, I loved my geography class ... and to this day, I enjoy maps and globes. (Little known fact, my grandfather was a geologist and a map maker! It's in my blood. :)) This resource is a wonderful addition to our library. Every time I read about Paul, I love having my Bible open to the back, trying to figure out Paul's missionary journey routes. And several years ago, when my women's Bible study went through Genesis, a good map was invaluable as we studied about the land God promised Abraham or where the 12 tribes of Jacob eventually ended up settling.If you are looking for a good Bible atlas for personal use or to add to a homeschooling library, I heartily recommend this one. Thank you to Moody for the copy to review and enjoy!
