In order to understand the world of the New Testament, it is essential to recognize the geographical realities of the first-century world in which the Gospel spread. By learning about these places and the historical interconnections between them, readers of the New Testament can better appreciate the phenomenal growth of the early church and how it took place.
Understanding the New Testament: An Introductory Atlas is a perfect Bible atlas for doing just that. This companion volume to Understanding the Old Testament provides an organized framework to understanding the New Testament through concise texts and colorful surveys, maps, tables, and chronologies.
