NCLA Review - On all counts—accuracy, usability, quality, and comprehensiveness—this atlas scores well. The atlas starts with a geographical section that covers the physical geography, topology, and climate of Israel, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Mesopotamia. The historical section that follows commences with the Pre-Patriarchal period, and covers both Hebrew Bible and New Testament history. There is also a separate chapter on the city of Jerusalem. Maps are full color, clearly labeled, and appealing to the eye. Photos, which are sometimes poorly selected and reproduced in Bible atlases, are crisp and sharp, and all are in color. A very nice feature of this atlas is the comparative timelines that head each section, with key events in the relevant nations: for example, the chapter on the Exile and Return shows timelines for Babylon/Persia, Judea, and Egypt. Overall timelines are also included at the end of the book. There are a bibliography, an index of Scriptural references, an index of persons, and a combined geographical dictionary and index at the end of the book. The atlas was a sixteen-year labor of love for the author, Carl Rasmussen, and it shows. For the price ($39.99), this is one of the best investments your library can make. Rating: 4 —KLF ( )

Overall, this tide is an excellent and accessible volume with an affordable price that will make it a useful tool for professors, students, and lay-readers alike. Its lavish illustrations and detailed maps will make it a reference that readers will pull off their shelves to consult time-and-time again. I highly recommend it.

In sum, kudos to Carl Rasmussen for an excellent revised work!

Despite the suggestions for improvements listed above, this atlas is excellent. Its maps and pictures are its strong suit, and they make it well worth the purchase for university and seminary students, pastors, and any serious student of the Bible. After all, fine maps and pictures are what a person mainly needs and expects in an atlas.
