Product Description

With thirty-five maps and more than three hundred color images, A Bible Reader's History of the Ancient World provides a stunning introduction to the ancient Near East and the classical world. Telling the story of the lands where the events of the Old and New Testaments took place, this volume introduces its readers to the civilizations of Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Syria-Palestine, extending its reach as far east as Persia and as far west as Rome. Its Chronological span is from prehistory to the medieval period, but its main focus is on the second and first millennia BCE and the first century CE.

Based on current archaeology and historical research, this volume makes modern scholarship readable and engaging. Its sixteen authors show how scientific archaeology, examination of material culture, and careful reading of primary texts are the keys to understanding ancient societies. The many images—of artifacts, buildings, landscapes, and locations—are more than illustrations; they are central to the book's purpose. They combine with the words of the text to bring the ancient world alive.

A Bible Reader's History of the Ancient WOrld is writtend for readers of the Bible and is intended to provide historical backgrounds concerning the peoples and lands of the Bible. It is meant to supplement a study of the biblical narrative itself. Thus it is not a traditional history of the ancient Near East, because it does not address all periods and all societies but has its focus on those that enlighten the biblical text. It is also written with those Bible readers in mind who travel or study in Bible lands, with emphasis on places and artifacts that visitors frequently see today.
