The Biblical Atlas will help readers of the Bible understand the contexts in which its stories are set and to appreciate the world from which it emerged and which formed its background. Maps show the geographical setting of the Bible's stories and reflect the successive stages of the Bible's accounts, while specially chosen full-colour illustrations bring the countries and their peoples to life. The accompanying text describes the land of Palestine, and its wider ancient Near Eastern and east Mediterranean settings. It outlines clearly the successive historical periods, and describes the major civilizations with which Israelites, Jews, and early Christians came into contact. There is also an illustrated survey of the relevance of archaeology for the study of the Bible. The Atlas provides a superb guide to the geography of the Holy Land throughout biblical history, from the Exodus period through to New Testament times.

The illustrated Atlas of Jerusalem.
Now, for the first time in English, here is a complete atlas of this fascinating city. Lavishly illustrated with more then 400 color illustrations, the Atlas looks at the history of Jerusalem with maps, drawings, and isometric reconstructions, all updated with the latest archaeological evidence.
Jerusalem is perhaps the most interesting city on earth. Sacred to Jews, Christians, and Muslims alike, it dates back to at least the third millennium BCE. David made it his capital; Solomon glorified it with his Temple; it fell to Babylonia in 586 BCE and was rebuilt by Ezra and Nehemiah; ut was the city of the Maccabees and of the Herods, and the place where Hesus was tried and crucified. Titus razed its buildings and destroyed the Temple in 70 CE. After the revolt of Bar Kochba, the Romans made Jerusalem a pagan shrine.
Jerusalem fell to the Crusaders in 1099; in 1187, Muslims, led by Saladin, captured the city and held it almost continuously untill the British took control after World War 1. The British Mandate ended un 1948 when the State of Israel was born. In 1967, Israel reunited the city.
