The maps and charts at the back of your Bible provide just a taste of how illustrated study aids can bring your Bible reading to life. Imagine the impact of a product chock full of interesting and helpful illustrations about the land and culture of the Bible story! The Zondervan Atlas of the Bible is the perfect product to make the pages of the Bible come alive with understanding and context.
Laid out for easy access to the information, the product opens with a broad focus on the Middle East as a whole, featuring discussions on the geography of the area and narrowing to a particular focus on Israel and Jordan.
The second section follows a historical timeline beginning in the third millennium BC and working through the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70. Divided out into significant eras, it provides a guide that will allow you to understand more deeply how the land, culture and geography affected the Israelites, with both biblical and extra biblical sources tapped.
The final section provides several appendices, including a geographical dictionary and index. Looking up a location in this index can give you quick one-tap access to the related material in the atlas.
The Zondervan Atlas of the Bible really shines when used within the Olive Tree Bible App. Open it up in the main window to browse directly in the Atlas, navigating via the table of contents to specific eras or locations, and conveniently tapping on linked verses as they appear in the text. Or keep your Bible open in the main window and access over one hundred full-color, multidimensional maps that trace the progression of Old and New Testament history through the resource guide.
