Though centered in the southern Levant, Understanding Biblical Kingdoms and Empires: An Introductory Atlas and Comparative View shows that the world of the Bible is much larger, stretching across the ancient Near East and filling the eastern Mediterranean Basin. This innovative and colorful atlas features numerous maps, illustrations, and photographs, and focuses on the dynamics between the great empires that ruled the world during biblical times and the nations of Israel and Judah.
