Reviews - What do our customers think?
This is the Best!  May 3, 2010
For those of us interested in biblical history and the latest archeological perspective, this Atlas is the best source of illustrated information. Use it with the bible and you get a real insight into the history of the holy land. Recommended for all -- whether you are religious or just interested in world history.
Great Atlas For the Money  Apr 26, 2010
A Bible atlas is essential for any student of Scripture. While there are numerous such books available, the Oxford Bible Atlas is superb for the price. The atlas is full of information and photos of outstanding quality. This atlas is a perfect option for those looking to purchase an excellent resource without having to break the bank.
What a book ! ! ! ! ! !  Nov 14, 2009
This book is beautiful, pictures are stunning, the maps are beautiful to see but the content is great. Beside all this there are written sections that contain much useful information.
The Fertile Crescent  Mar 1, 2009
I was just browsing the "Oxford Bible Atlas" on this site where I came across a description of the "Fertile Crescent" on page 15 where it is said to extend from the Euphrates/Tigris river valley through the Nile valley.

The "Fertile Crescent" is not an ancient description. The term was coined by James Henry Breasted (about 100 years ago) in the introduction to each of his volumes of translations of Egyptian inscriptions. For Breasted, the "Fertile Crescent" was limited to the Euphrates/Tigris, Orontes and Jordan river valleys. Breasted contrasted the "Fertile Crescent" with the Nile valley. Ipso facto, for Breasted, Egypt formed no part of the "Fertile Crescent".

The "Oxford Bible Atlas" also refers to the "Fertile Crescent" as if it included Egypt on pages 120 and 192. The "Holman Bible Atlas" correctly describes the "Fertile Crescent" on page 3 and attributes its definition to Breasted. (Wikipedia incorrectly describes and maps the "Fertile Crescent" to include Egypt.)

The only map showing up in this site's "LOOK INSIDE" section is that spread over pages 16 and 17. The List of Maps is on page ix but this doesn't show up using "LOOK INSIDE". As the book is an atlas one would expect to be able to see a list of maps if not a few sample maps. I have browsed some of the other biblical atlases on-line. Where they are shown, the other atlases have very wishy-washy maps. It would be nice to know what the "Oxford" maps look like before buying the book. The "Oxford" text is certainly better - in both font and content - than that of the other atlases.

I have rated this book based on the "LOOK INSIDE" excerpts and the comments of others with the hope that the poor scholarship in relation to the "Fertile Crescent" does not extend elsewhere.
Gorgeous but not orthodox  Jul 9, 2008
Why bother creating such a beautiful book, full of helpful maps and lovely photographs, when the authors clearly only half believe the Biblical narrative? I got disgusted by the all phrases such as "purported to have happened," and "said to have taken place," in the first few chapters. My guess is that most people wanting to really delve into the geography of the Bible believe it's true, or they wouldn't be bothering. Had I realized how heavy this slant was, I would have chosen something else.
