Christianity is a faith built upon the Word and understood through words, both written and spoken, handed down for centuries. But many of the terms used in both the Scriptures and theological writings are unfamiliar or misunderstood. For the Christian desiring a more clear and robust understanding of these terms, this book offers concise definitions of six hundred of the most significant words at the heart of the Christian faith, including terms related to:
- doctrine (e.g., the atonement, the church)
- biblical concepts (e.g., Messiah, Son of Man)
- church practices (e.g., anointing of the sick, immersion)
- philosophical concepts (e.g., a priori, compatibilism)
- people (e.g., Thomas Aquinas, John Wesley)
- councils (e.g., Councils of Nicea I and II, Council of Trent)
- movements (e.g., Protestantism, Pentecostalism)
- documents (e.g., the Chalcedonian Creed, Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy)
- and more
Students of the Bible, college and seminary students, and anyone who desires to deepen their understanding of the Christian faith will find this an indispensable resource.
Archaeologist Eric H. Cline here offers a complete overview of this exciting field. He discusses the early pioneers, such as Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie and William Foxwell Albright, the origins of biblical archaeology as a discipline, and the major controversies that first prompted explorers to go in search of objects and sites that would "prove" the Bible. He then surveys some of the most well-known biblical archaeologists, including Kathleen Kenyon and Yigael Yadin, the sites that are essential sources of knowledge for biblical archaeology, such as Hazor, Megiddo, Gezer, Lachish, Masada, and Jerusalem, and some of the most important discoveries that have been made, including the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Mesha Inscription, and the Tel Dan Stele. Subsequent chapters examine additional archaeological finds that shed further light on the Hebrew Bible and New Testament, the issue of potential frauds and forgeries, including the James Ossuary and the Jehoash Tablet, and future prospects of the field.

The Carta Bible Atlas provides the historical and archaeological context needed to understand the biblical text, making it perfect for pastors, teachers, students, and scholars! The original authors of The Carta Bible Atlas, Yohanan Aharoni and Michael Avi-Yonah, developed biblical maps that have precise details of each of the major events described in the Bible. As research has progressed and new discoveries have been made, the succeeding authors have revised previous material to supply a more complete picture for many of the biblical narratives.
Rainey has added over 40 new maps of the Bible that place the biblical events in a solid framework of ancient Near Eastern history and culture, and has thoroughly revised subsequent chapters along those lines. Notley has revised and enhanced the portions dealing with New Testament events. He has also extended the reach of this Bible atlas to the beginning of the fourth century A.D. by adding a chapter on the Holy Land according to the Onomasticon of Eusebius, bishop of Caesarea.
