Understanding the Twelve Tribes: Boundaries & Surrounding Nations is an in-depth, profusely illustrated treatment of the territories and boundaries of the twelve tribes of Israel as outlined in the Hebrew Bible, as well as those of their ancient neighbors.
It is quite challenging, if not impossible, to visualize the placement of the twelve tribes of Israel from reading the biblical accounts alone, which is why Understanding the Twelve Tribes is such a welcome addition to Carta’s library of scholarly and biblical reference materials. Understanding the Twelve Tribes is colorful, accessible, and affordable, making it a must-have resource for any reader of the Bible!
