It contains 271 maps and covers the history of the Holy Land from 3000 BC to 200 AD. It's the fact that this is not just a book full of maps, but that is also includes historical commentaries, is what makes it such a valuable tool. It also contains numerous illustrations and examples of inscriptions that related to historical events covered in this volume. The commentaries and discussion of the maps is great and includes archeological, literary, textual and other evidence.
While reading the Old Testament, I found it especially useful when used along with Bright's History of Israel. It's the most helpful tool, I highly recommend it.
The book follows a chronological approach to the events recorded
in the Bible. It follows the great empires and how the boundaries
and borders of land changed. You can actually see a map that is
representative for the times that you reading about in the Bible.
A great way to learn history and see the territorial changes that
accompany the rise and fall of empires. It's a great book!
It's still an amazing resource and it's given me 30-40% more information to preach with.
