Biblica The Bible Atlas: A Social and Historical Journey through the Lands of the Bible
Beitzel, Barry, editor

Lane Cove, Australia: Global Book, 2006 pp. 575. Price Not Available


Description: Heralded as the most authoritative and up-to-date atlas of the Bible now available, Biblica: The Bible Atlas goes beyond the more traditional books of its kind. It places the biblical narrative and its peoples in their historical, cultural, social, and geographic contexts, and it makes clear the complex history and cultures of the Bible lands as they relate to the regionís modern social and political landscape. But perhaps most important of all, Biblica: The Bible Atlas incorporates the most recent archaeological findings and research, combining scholarly data with engaging discussion of the Bibleís immortal stories. In summary, this unusual volume offers readers fresher insights and a deeper appreciation of the biblical narrative than any other reference source of its kind.

Subjects: Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Archaeology
