Understanding biblical geography allows one to more fully comprehend the dramatic events of the Bible. This popular-level historical and geographical survey of the Bible acts as a handbook to help the reader become familiar with some of the main physical and climatic features of the Holy Land. It combines vivid, easy-to-read commentary with 39 maps and 50 photographs. Sixteen historical periods are discussed, including the Inter-testamental Period and present day geography. The book traces the Bible chronologically and examines historical periods and major biblical events in the context of their geographical settings.
