Zondervan NIV Atlas of the BibleBook - 1989
For quick reference and detailed study, the Zondervan NIV Atlas of the Bible is the most comprehensive Bible atlas available.*The GEOGRAPHICAL SECTION presents the physical geography of the lands of the biblical word, from Egypt to Mesopotamia. The Israel/Jordan region especially is discussed in depth.*The HISTORICAL SECTION presents in detail the flow of biblical history in its geographical context and shows how geography influenced the course of biblical history.*A separate section on JERUSALEM traces the history and development of the city that is at the center of much of biblical history.*THE DISCIPLINES OF HISTORICAL GEOGRAPHY shows the reader how the actual sites of ancient cities are rediscovered--an often complex process that sirs the imagination with the excitement of highly specialized detective work.*An outstanding feature is the GAZETTEER. This is an exhaustive place-name index that gives the exact geographical location for each name with the pages and maps on which the name is found in the Atlas.
