The Holman Bible Atlas is a visual feast, illuminating the Bible for a whole new generation of students, teachers and laypeople by introducing them to the physical, cultural, and historical settings of the biblical narrative. A 2000 Gold Medallion Winner, the Atlas integrates insights from physical and historical geography, archaeology, ancient historical sources, and the Bible itself. Beginning with the physical geography of the ancient Near East and Palestine, the Atlas clarifies various periods of biblical history by outlining the timeframe from the patriarchs through the Christian era and up to Constantine. Detailed analysis of the economic, cultural and religious practices common in the time periods are provided, and side bar articles discuss some of these issues in a more in-depth manner. Included in The Holman Bible Atlas is a glossary and extensive bibliography.
