This atlas was last published in 1977. The original authors are now deceased, so Anson F. Rainey, professor of ancient Near Eastern cultures at Tel Aviv University, and Ze'ev Safrai, professor of land of Israel studies, Bar Illan University, were commissioned for this revision. They have made changes to reflect new information from recent archaeological excavations.
The work covers the years 3000 B.C. through A.D. 200. The 269 two-color maps are arranged chronologically. Each map is accompanied by references to biblical sources. Some maps treat events that were not specifically mentioned in the Bible. For example, in the section on the Hellenistic period are maps of the campaigns of Alexander the Great and the travels of Zenon in Palestine. Succinct text explains the historical background of each map. The pages are further illustrated with black-and-white drawings of artifacts and a few photographs.
Chronological tables, a key to the maps according to books of the Bible, and an index to all geographic names appearing on the maps complete the book.
Librarians who have found The Macmillan Bible Atlas useful in the past will be pleased to know that this fully updated version is available. It is an important work of cartography for biblical researchers and for anyone delving into this region of the world.
