Understanding Great People of the Bible: An Introductory Atlas to Biblical Biography provides a summary of biblical data centered on the lives of some of the greatest characters who walked across the pages of Scripture. More importantly, this retelling of various biblical stories incorporates a measure of the concrete reality of the ancient Near Eastern world that sheds light on the biblical text. In doing so, this atlas of the Bible attempts to suggest reasons and consequences for human actions within the storyline, thereby making sense of what might otherwise appear to be a an opaque or all-too-brief narrative. Suitable for the classroom, libraries, or group study.
