Customer Reviews for Inter-Varsity Press The IVP Atlas of Bible History

Inter-Varsity Press The IVP Atlas of Bible History

Taking a narrative approach, this full color atlas draws you into the rich resources available today on the history, geography and archaeology of the Bible and presents the latest findings in history and archaeology in a readable style. The world of the Bible deals with more than the modern state of Israel. Almost half of the events in the Bible are set outside this territory, and much of the Bible is addressed to people in other lands. Thus this atlas covers the world of the Bible, stretching from Spain to Iran, from Yemen to northern Greece. Trade widened these horizons even further to include India and possibly China and the east coast of Africa. The history of the Bible is played out on the stages of Egypt, Rome, Babylon and Persia. Many of the places in the ancient world are still important today, like Jerusalem, Damascus and Athens. These all play their role in the story that has shaped the imaginations and dreams of peoples and nations for centuries. Features:
  • Nearly 100 maps
  • Over 140 color photographs
  • Over 20 panoramic reconstructions and site plans
  • Numerous battle plans, smaller artworks and chronological charts
  • A gazetteer, Scripture index and main index
  • Full-color, large-format presentation

Very nice layout and simple to use, doesn't bog down into words. A good atlas for introduction to the lands of the Bible. The maps are fairly simple and not difficult to look at. A worthy atlas but I prefer the Holman Atlas over it.
