Author Bio

Anson F. Rainey (1930-2011), Th.M., Ph.D., was emeritus professor of Ancient Near Eastern Cultures and Semitic Linguistics at Tel Aviv University, adjunct professor of Historical Geography at Bar Ilan University and the American Institute of Holy land Studies. Prof. Rainey conceived this project and saw it to completion. It is a consummation of a lifetime engagement with the historical geography of Bible Lands. The translations of Ancient Near Eastern texts discussed in Part I of the Atlas are all the result of his personal study of the Akkadian, Egyptian and Northwest Semitic inscriptions. For this second edition he gave the work another careful reading provided corrections and suggested many improvements.

Prof. Rainey had personally collated the Amarna correspondence from Cairo, London, Berlin, Paris, Brussels, New York, Chicago, and Istanbul. His four-volume work on the hybrid language of the Amarna Letters from Canaan is the only work of its kind and has become a standard reference for all scholars of cuneiform and Northwest Semitic who study and teach those unique epistles. His last published work, Teaching History and Historical Geography of Bible Lands: A syllabus (Jerusalem 2011), is a most valuable gift of his knowledge and experience to future generations.

R. Steven Notley, Ph.D., is distinguished professor of Biblical Studies at the New York City campus of Nyack College and former Chairman of the Department of New Testament Studies, American Institute for Holy Land Studies. Professor Notley, who is at the cutting edge of modern New Testament research, combines his philological training with an intimate firsthand knowledge of biblical geography. In this Atlas Notley is responsible for the chapters on the Greco-Roman period. With his mentor, the late David Flusser, he collaborated on the historical biography of Jesus (Jerusalem 1997, 2001), and with Ze'evSafrai, he collected and annotated the Parables of the Sages: Jewish Wisdom from Jesus to RavAshi in Hebrew and also provided the translation for the Hebrew-English edition (Jerusalem 2011). He is also the editor for the collected studies, Jerusalem Studies in the Synoptic Gospels (Leiden 2005).

    Carta's most comprehensive Bible Atlas available is The Sacred Bridge. While it is a scholars delight, pastors will find it an incredible resource. The pictures and scholarly information well supplement the incredible maps. Anton Rainey and R. Steven Notley are top-flight scholars perfect for such an endeavor while the maps are classic Carta, only this time in full color. An ambitious undertaking that delivers what it advertises. I dont agree with every point made, but I love this atlas.
