From the cover: The outstanding success of Nelsons Atlas Of The Bible among both scholars and the reading public has encouraged the author to prepare this new and concise version. The method, so successful in the Atlas Of The Bible , of combining plates, text, and maps into one integrated whole has also been used here to draw in brilliant outline the story of our Bible.
The work of the archaeologist in revealing the secrets of the past has a fascination for us all; and nowhere is this work of more interest to us than in Palestine, the land of the Bible.
This Shorter Atlas Of The Bible makes available some of the knowledge of the Scriptures which has been revealed by the work of Biblical archaeologists, geographers, and historians during the past fifty years. It presents with freshness, clarity, and imagination a succinct and vivid account of the accumulation of research and discovery which is continually adding to what we know of the Bible and its setting. In the light of modern knowledge the impressive story of the Scriptures is interpreted and presented against its geographical background with a wealth of detail which makes it even more telling.
The author has written an entirely new text for this book. It is concise and graphic and packed with information. The first part describes the geographical setting and gives a brief but illuminating account of the techniques of archaeological investigation; the remaining chapters deal with the Bible itself, describing what we know of its origins and composition and also providing a brief account of the peoples of the Bible and their history.
Very Good in Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper somewhat frayed at the head of the spine and top edge of the upper panel, a little age-tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.
Red boards with Gilt titling to the Spine.
196 pages. Index. 8¼” x 5½”.
