Understanding the Old Testament: An Introductory Atlas to the Hebrew Bible by Carta
A composite introduction to the Hebrew Bible, with illuminating texts, maps, chronologies and charts. Special section on the Hebrew alphabet and calendar. All major empires, battles and events are covered in a pleasing format.
Nearly all the questions you ever wanted to ask about Understanding the Old Testament:
1) Which books of the Bible are included in the Five Scrolls?
2) Can you name the peoples and lands of the ancient Near East in the time of the Bible?
3) Who were the Kings of Judah and Israel?
Exerpt from Preface:
"If asked to write down all that was remembered from hundreds of Bible lessons, sometimes it is doubtful whether all but a few pages could be filled, or if much accuracy could be retained.
How, then, despite the inexhaustible mine of information acquired, were all these hours of Bible teaching and study lost? One possible reason lies in the fact that the Bible is usually studied in a fragmentary manner, not within a comprehensive framework that is structured and organized from beginning to end. The importance of a structured framework may be somewhat exaggerated, but it can undoubtedly ease Bible study and make it more interesting and memorable. The Atlas provides just such a framework - a historical-geographical backdrop to the understanding of the Bible, providing the broades background possible for placing the events and persons within a tangible framework of time and space."
