This just arrived at the Bookcenter. It looks to be a very promising addition to anyone’s personal Bible reference library. The ESV Bible Atlas is divided into three sections beginning with a very helpful introduction to Biblical lands, followed by a historical geography of the Biblical world, and ending in a section devoted entirely to full-color regional maps. A really cool added feature of this atlas is the CD that it provides in the back which has a searchable index along with digital maps. Make sure to stop by the store to take a look at this. You can find this atlas on our new titles display at the front of the store.
This groundbreaking, full-color companion to the ESV Bible combines visual appeal with state-of-the-art historical and geographical resources in one user-friendly volume.
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 a CD with searchable indexes and digital maps, and a removable, 16.5 x 22-inch map of Palestine.
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.
