The Genesis flood account has been probed and analyzed for centuries. But what might the biblical author have been saying to his ancient audience? In order to rediscover the biblical flood, we must set aside our own cultural and interpretive assumptions and visit the distant world of the ancient Near East. Walton and Longman lead us on this enlightening journey toward a more responsible reading of a timeless biblical narrative.
Like its large-format predecessor, Paul Lawrence's IVP Concise Atlas of Bible History uses full-color maps, time charts, diagrams and photographs to expose readers to the ancient biblical world uncovered by modern historians, geographers and archaeologists.
Paul Lawrence takes a narrative approach in presenting this atlas, a rich resource of Bible history, geography and archaeology. The atlas traces the main events in the Old and New Testaments from Abraham to Paul. The text includes relief maps, photos, panoramic illustrations, site plans and battle plans.
