Much of the Bible is a history of God's dealings with his people Israel. The events it records took place in a specific geographical environment that involved many people and places. So to more clearly understand the Bible, it's helpful to visualize how Israel interacted with her neighbors and was affected by geography. This atlas gives you the tools you need to reconstruct the scenes of history-full-color maps, illustrations, color photographs, a time line, and more. The concluding chapters trace the continuing history of Bible lands, emphasizing the work of modern archaeologists. An index and geographical gazetteer help you locate significant places of Bible times on modern and traditional maps.
