Book Description

coloured map end-papers. To front: titles; contributors; introduction; contents & chronology. More than 100 maps, plans, photo's. & drawings in colour with notes & references. ‘The Times Atlas of the Bible’ covers the entire time span from the earliest evidence of mankind in Palestine, to the establishment of the kingdoms of Judah and Israel, the Jewish revolts against the Romans and the rise of the Christian church. The Atlas is edited by Professor James B. Pritchard, one of the most distinguished archaeologists and historians of religion. An international team of fifty archaeologists, linguists, historians and theologians have also contributed, giving this book a unique authority. The Atlas includes, among many other features, a vivid map of the possible routes of the Exodus, dramatic battle maps of the Israelites' wars with surrounding tribes and a magnificent reconstruction of Jerusalem as Jesus knew it. The exhaustive place-name index gives not only biblical and extra-biblical names with their equivalents in other languages (Arabic & Hebrew), but also their exact location on the Palestine grid. To the rear are: acknowledgements & abbreviations; notes on maps & illustrations; people of the bible with biblical references; & the indexes described above.
