Within this very colorful atlas of Bible history are 100 color maps, 140 color photos, and many drawings. Arranged chronologically according to biblical history, the atlas contains added special chapters on topics including writings, architecture, agriculture, warfare, the Romans, and more; these topic chapters relate to their corresponding preceding chapters. Most of the maps are physical relief maps of the geography of the Middle East. There are 20 site plans for buildings and cities, such as the temple and Jerusalem. The present-day photos are of areas or items discussed in a particular chapter: for the chapter on Joseph, the son of Jacob, there are images of Egyptian art and of Egypt. Each chapter features a “key” box with Scripture listings related to the subject of the chapter. Throughout the atlas are special side bars on special topics such as the James Ossuary that was in the news in 2002, the chronology of the divided kingdoms, and a chronology of the kings of Israel and Judah. There is a one-page glossary, a short bibliography, an index, and a scripture reference index.

Paul Lawrence received his Ph.D. from the University of Liverpool, where he studied Akkadian, Hebrew, and New Eastern archeology. He helped with the Turkish Bible Society in Istanbul translation of the Old Testament into modern Turkish. In 2006, he was teaching at the University of Liverpool. In September of that year, this atlas was published by Lion Hudson in England under the title The Lion Atlas of Bible History. Alan Millard was the senior consulting editor, and Heinrich von Siebenthal and John Walton were consulting editors. This atlas is highly recommended to those interested in Bible studies as a class or on an individual level.
