CANDLE ATLAS OF THE BIBLE

Tim Dowley

An attractively produced compact atlas.

Consists of 79 computer-generated maps, some quite small, a good selection of photographs, diagrams and other illustrative material, together with a clear, if somewhat uncritical summary of the historical material of the Old and New Testaments. The maps are clear and fully coloured and the contours are easy to follow. A good introductory section contains much useful information about the topography, climate and agriculture of the Holy Land and a section on the intertestamental period is helpful. This would be a useful first bible atlas for anyone simply curious to see where things happened, though the student in search of greater detail and a more scholarly approach will wish to look elsewhere. The American spelling is an irritation but it is a delight to see AD used for New Testament dates instead of the ubiquitous Common Era.
