Review

When a foreigner, who is not of your people Israel, comes from a distant land because of your name--for they shall hear of your great name, your mighty hand, and your outstretched arm--when a foreigner comes and prays toward this house, then hear in heaven your dwelling place, and do according to all that the foreigner calls to you so that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you, as do your people Israel, and so that they may know that your name, as been invoked on this house that I have built.

Format: Hardcover
Receiving this book has been an extremely pleasant surprise for me. Knowing the quality of Carta atlases, I ordered it expecting a top-quality up to date biblical atlas. However, I found it a superb, well-documented treatise of the pre-biblical, biblical and post biblical world, through the Bar Kokhba revolt, illustrated with high quality maps and photos. Although these illustrations, by themselves, are highly instructive, they do not make this unique volume as valuable as it will be to any serious biblical scholar. The authors compiled tremendous amounts of historical and archeological information that would be hard to retrieve otherwise. Although experts may argue about details of the information presented on the interpretation of certain biblical passages, as these depend on the academic school they represent, this book provides an unprecedented wealth of up to date information; information that will allow interested biblical scholars to go to the sources and expand their horizons. Last but not least, this treatise documents in great detail the robust connection between the biblical text with the geography of the ancient Jewish homeland and with relevant recent archeological findings. It is, therefore, also of substantial timely value when the veracity of biblical history is being questioned not be scholars but by biased political parties.

If you are looking for an atlas for helping in your study of the Bible - this is it. (If you are not looking you should think about it!) The maps are excellent, but they are only a part of the contents of this fine reference. There is a wealth of cultural and language information contained along side wonderful insight into Biblical history as revealed in the geography of the Scripture. The authors obviously have a passion for their subject matter and it shows in the outstanding quality of this work. The publisher has presented the work in a wonderful format and the book is as beautiful as it is thorough in scholarship. "The Sacred Bridge" is a must for the serious student of Scripture and even more so for the Bible teacher. It is expensive - I saved for it for a while - It is worth every penny and more.

Only someone with no other reading to do can handle the demands of reading this type of book. However, it is worth the fortune one much pay to get a copy of this work. Where else can one find the nuances of interpretation or vagaries of fact that emerge from slender information or from meager scraps of archaeological artifacts? No longer do such imponderables parade as established proof beyond a shadow of a doubt. In addition, there is no further need to look for a book for those locations that some text mentions but neglects to map; this is a a one stop shopping mall for the ancient middle east and the bible.

It is the most detailed atlas I have-The Sacred Bridge by Rainey and Notley. I'll admit it's a luxury but it is the ultimate one available. The maps are small, but the text is detailed to almost every Bible event imaginable. It can be liberal in places, but if you want to find the archaeological site to match the Bible site in modern Israel, it is indispensable. Its comprehensiveness is unparalleled.
