Overview

Rose Atlas of Then and Now Bible Maps with Biblical Backgrounds and Culture

by Paul H. Wright, president of Jerusalem University College (Institute of Holy Land Studies)

The Best "Then and Now" Bible Atlas Ever It has Features No Other Has!

  • 120 stunning detailed Bible maps
  • Clear plastic overlays of modern cities and countries so you know where Bible places are today.
  • Incredible insights into the lives of 30 important Bible characters. This atlas focuses on people not regions -- and how the geography affected their lives and decisions.

For example:

  • Know how David's clever understanding of geography and politics led to his marriage with Ahinoam of Jezreel.
  • Discover why Naomi, in the Book of Ruth, couldn't just move back to Bethlehem after her husband's death and use his land again.
  • Find out why Moses and the Children of Israel took the long southern trek from Egypt to the Promised Land, rather than the direct route.

This atlas gives you incredible insights into your favorite Bible stories. See the Table of Contents at the bottom.
