Oxford Bible Atlas
Oxford University Press recently sent me a copy of the Oxford Bible Atlas 4th edition by Adrian Curtis. Unlike a lot of atlases, this one does not overwhelm with lots of text or underwhelm with too many photos. The photography is stunning and the commentary concise and insightful, providing rich historical detail regarding the time and cultures of the biblical world.
A few of the features include:
- The table of contents are by time period, which makes it easy to access the general information you are looking for.
- The index helps the reader find more specific information.
- Each time period is outlined and a helpful chronology of period/dates/biblical events/corresponding historical events is located at the back.
