The book includes maps, charts, diagrams, a glossary of terms, and more than 150 photographs that help the ancient world come alive. Now in paper.

Endorsements

"Informing, provocative, and even autobiographical and entertaining at times. . . . If you work in New Testament, then this belongs on your shelf. After all, it will probably be a while before it is superseded."--James F. Strange, Biblical Archaeologist

"Highly recommended and much needed in the field of New Testament studies. No doubt it will serve as a standard text for many years to come."--David Merling, Andrews University Seminary Studies
