This major revision of the Gold Medallion Award-winning Zondervan NIV Atlas of the Bible is a visual feast that will help you experience the geography and history of Scripture with unprecedented clarity. The first section of the Atlas introduces the “playing board” of biblical history—using three–dimensional maps and photographic images to help the lands of the Bible come alive. The next section, arranged historically, begins with Eden and traces the historical progression of the Old and New Testaments. It provides an engaging, accurate, and faithful companion to God’s Word—illuminating the text with over one hundred full-color, multidimensional maps created with the help of Digital Elevation Modeling data. It concludes with chapters on the history of Jerusalem, the disciplines of historical geography, and the most complete and accurate listing and discussion of place-names found in any atlas.

Throughout the Atlas, innovative graphics, chronological charts, and over one hundred specially selected images help illuminate the geographical and historical context of biblical events. The Zondervan Atlas of the Bible is destined to become a favorite guide to biblical geography for students of the Bible. This accessible and complete resource will assist you as you enter into the world of the Bible as never before.

Top Highlights

“This atlas has been written in the belief that once one has a basic understanding of the geography of the Middle East, one has a much better chance of coming to grips with the flow of historical events that occurred there.” (Page 13)

“Thutmose III’s successor, Amenhotep II (1427–1401 BC), conducted three campaigns into the Levant.” (Page 102)

“The roads that developed in the ancient land of Israel can be divided into three major categories: international routes, interregional routes, and local routes.” (Page 31)

“Travel during the dry summer season was preferred to attempting to negotiate the muddy, rain-soaked terrain in the winter months. The spring and summer seasons were ‘the time when kings go off to war’ (2 Sam 11:1) because the roads were dry and the newly harvested grain was available to feed their troops.” (Page 32)

“By about 1400 BC, the construction of cisterns solved the problem of being completely dependent on natural water sources such as springs and wells. Hewn out of the limestone and lined with plaster to prevent leakage, the cisterns collected the water from the winter rains for year-round use.” (Page 24)

    I have just purchased this volume and it is great. Loads of detail and plenty of archaeology thrown in for good measure. The graphics are crystal clear and very detailed - well worth the investment

    This is my favorite Bible Atlas. Professor Rasmussen is especially helpful in tracing the trade routes that so affected Israelite history. Understanding the dynamics of travel, trade and military advantages is a welcome blessing of this book to bring the Biblical account to life. It's a great read from cover to cover.
