This slim volume introduces the geography and history of the biblical world with color photographs and maps and accessibly written text. A brief overview of the Middle East’s terrain, climate, and trade routes is followed by several chapters that emphasize places and events recorded in the Bible, from the possible locations of the Garden of Eden to the extensive missionary travels of Paul. Although written from a Christian perspective and intended for a Christian audience, the atlas is nevertheless appropriate for theological, academic, and large public libraries. --Christopher McConnell

I was pleasantly surprised at the wealth of information contained in this reasonably priced atlas! The quality of the paper, the photographs, and the detailed maps is excellent!
The first portion, the "Geographical" section, although relatively short, is packed full of interesting facts about the geography (including the climate) of the modern and ancient Middle East, especially the Holy Land.
The larger "Historical" section, which covers everything from the patriarchs through the New Testament, is truly amazing in its detail, including time lines and facts that most of us are not familiar with. Although primarily an atlas, one is able to enjoy this book as an interesting history of the people and lands of the Bible.
A terrific tool, which I will return to, frequently, to read along with my Bible!
