The Bible tells the story of God meeting real people in a real time and place, yet we rarely wonder, Why there? Maybe we have a hard time even picturing where there is. To begin to fully understand the Bible, we must understand the geographical settings of Scripture and how each place participates in the biblical story. With its colorful maps and illustrations, The Basic Bible Atlas helps us do just that, so we can appreciate how place impacted events in the Bible. From Eden to Egypt, from the promised land to Persia, from Bethlehem to the new Jerusalem, The Basic Bible Atlas is your ticket to explore the land of the Bible as never before.

"Although I have studied the land and history of Israel for a lifetime, I never cease to gain new insights from the writings of Dr. John Beck. The Basic Bible Atlas is no exception. Drawing from his rich teaching experience and travels in the Bible lands, John demonstrates the importance of physical setting as a key to understanding the biblical narratives. Focusing on significant developments and turning points, he tells the stories of Israel with crystal clarity and penetrating insight."--J. Carl Laney, professor of biblical literature and coordinator for Israel study programs, Western Seminary, Portland, OR

"This atlas is a delightful foray into the real world of the Bible. In it, John Beck has woven the narrative line of the Bible into its geographical context, showing us how to read the land as we read the text. The result is a rich tapestry that gives vibrancy to our Bible reading and grounds its claims on our lives."--Paul H. Wright, Jerusalem University College
