The Bible Atlas A Social and Historical Journey Through the Lands of the BibleBook - 2006
In the 1000 years before the birth of Christ and the 70 years following, the small kingdom of Israel produced the Bible, a work unmatched in its literary scope and in its enduring influence on Western civilization. The Bible is a vast epic, containing poetry and drama, legal precepts and practical guidance, spiritual insight and moral wisdom. Biblica explores its historical and geographical framework. Splendid and authoritative, Biblica maps the entire world of the Bible, from Creation to the travels of St. Paul and the Apostles in the first century after Christ. An essential addition to every home library, it features: * topography, geology, climate, vegetation and key physical features of the region; * the latest archeological findings and satellite images; * more than 700 full-colour images from leading art galleries, museums and collections from around the globe; * an interactive CD-ROM with additional exciting features. Biblica has been compiled, developed and written by an international team of leading academics and Bible scholars.
