Editorial Reviews

Understanding the Land of the Bible, written by one of the finest, most trustworthy scholars of the Old Testament living today, is the best short introduction to the subject of which I am aware. . . . exactly what pastors, seminarians, and Bible college students have long been looking for.
A much needed tool for digging into the Bible. Robertson shows that the study of geography is not drudgery in a dusty desert but a refreshing oasis of theological insight.
Understanding the Land of the Bible is a guide to biblical Isreal and much more. It not only informs the reader about the cities, rivers, mountains, and climate of the land, but it does so while insightfully pointing out their biblical-theological significance. Find out about the setting for God’s great redemptive acts.

    "Understanding the Land of the Bible" is a Bible atlas of sorts. The author described the land in terms of rainfall, terrain, location, and such as you'll find in many Bible reference books. As each area, river, plain, valley, mountain, or city is discussed, we're also told of the various biblical events that occurred on that spot. This helps to pull together the history of the spot in a way you probably won't get from simply reading the Bible.

    The book description implies that the author will explain why these events happened in these specific spots, presumably due to their location or geography. He only really did this for "why did God chose the Levant as the Promised Land?", "Why did David choose Jerusalem as his capital city?", and "Why did Jesus choose Capernaum as his 'home base' for his ministry?"

    If you're looking for a quick read or reference guide where you can look up a spot to learn what events happened there, then this book will probably fulfill your need. The only illustrations are some plain, black-and-white maps showing various locations, so another book will serve better if you're looking for a Bible atlas.
