Capitalizing on recent advances in satellite imaging and geographic information systems, the Crossway ESV Bible Atlas offers Bible readers a comprehensive, up-to-date resource that blends technical sophistication with readability, visual appeal, and historical and biblical accuracy.

The atlas uniquely features regional maps detailing biblically significant areas such as Egypt, Mesopotamia, Italy, and Greece. It also includes access to online maps and illustrations and a removable, 16.5 x 22-inch map of Palestine.

10/10 (exceptional): A wonderful Bible atlas, beautifully produced and very well written. As with most high-quality Bible atlases, there is far more than just maps, and the commentary matches the high standards of the cartography. If you only buy one Bible atlas, I would certainly recommend this one — even over the Carta Bible Atlas. ( )

Epigraph
Stand by the roads, and look,
and ask for the ancient paths,
where the good way is; and walk in it,
and find rest for your souls.

Jeremiah 6:16
Dedication
To Marvin R. Wilson, outstanding teacher, who started
me on the path of ancient Near Eastern studies

--John

To Anisea, with deepest love

--David
First words
[Preface] As any student of scripture quickly learns, the Bible was not written in a vacuum. Its books are set in specific geographic locations in the Near East during specific times in history, and these factors greatly affect how a book should be understood and interpreted.
From the beginning, humans have pondered the origin, operation, and meaning of the universe.
