Overview

Capitalizing on recent advances in satellite imaging and geographic information systems, the Crossway ESV Bible Atlas offers Bible readers a comprehensive, up-to-date resource that blends technical sophistication with readability, visual appeal, and historical and biblical accuracy.

All the key methods of presenting Bible geography and history are here, including more than 175 full-color maps, 70 photographs, 3-D re-creations of biblical objects and sites, indexes, timelines, and 65,000 words of narrative description. The atlas uniquely features regional maps detailing biblically significant areas such as Egypt, Mesopotamia, Italy, and Greece. It also includes access to online maps and illustrations.

This carefully crafted reference tool not only sets a new standard in Bible atlases but will help ESV readers more clearly understand the world of the Bible and the meaning of Scripture.

“The key to power in the ancient Near East was to control Palestine, and particularly the road system that traversed it” (Page 18)

“The Sea of Galilee. The Sea of Galilee is actually a lake that is 13 miles (20 km) long and 8 miles (13 km) wide. Its surface is 680 feet (207 m) below sea level, and at one point it reaches a depth of 145 feet (45 km).” (Page 22)

“The land of Palestine is approximately the size of the state of Vermont.” (Page 18)

“According to the books of 1-2 Kings, not one good king ever reigned in Samaria. The city was destroyed by the Assyrian army in 722 b.c.” (Page 22)

“No kingdom in antiquity reached the heights of human civilization attained by Egypt” (Page 17)

A remarkably beautiful and rich resource for historical, geographical, and archaeological background material that will deepen our understanding of each section of the Bible and increase our appreciation of the Bible’s amazing historical accuracy.

Wayne Grudem, Research Professor of Theology and Biblical Studies, Phoenix Seminary

This Atlas is a wonderfully illustrated tool to aid the layperson, student of the Scripture, or pastor who wants to dig deeper and gain new insights and appreciation of the setting, context, and message of the Bible. The text is easy to follow, pictures are brilliant, and maps are incredibly useful as the reader moves through the related narratives. I highly recommend this marvelous resource.

James K. Hoffmeier, Professor of Old Testament and Near Eastern Archaeology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

During the 44 years I served as a college professor I used many good atlases. However, I have never seen one comparable to this in the breadth of material, the depth of coverage, and the outstanding quality of its impressive and abundantly illustrated maps and photos of Bible lands.

    I would recommend the ESV Bible Atlas as a tremendous map resource you should add to your library. This atlas is superior to the Holman Bible Atlas and the Zondervan Bible Atlas. There are more maps, larger maps, and better maps in this resource than the others. I have each of them (and a few others) and use this one more than all the others. This atlas also includes many diagrams and illustrations of ancient cities, and temples. There is a section with timelines (but that is not as good as the timelines Logos provides). There are many maps that are included in the ESV Study Bible but there are many many more in this atlas. There are maps that include secular history (Alexander the Great, intertestamental period etc.). There are a few 3D maps which help one to visualize the elevation changes and such. This resource has larger maps than the others as well. They are higher quality in resolution and visually appealing (no strange colors like the carta resources, which clearly date those maps). There are some archeological resources here as well, but they are more like "asides" and are not the main focus. They are useful images and helpful narratives attached. This is a highly recommended resource. Logos makes it easy to get these images and maps into PowerPoint also. If you are trying to decide which atlas resource to buy I would put my vote on this one.
