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.
