The Carta Bible Atlas, by its original authors, Yohanan Aharoni and Michael Avi-Yonah, has consistently sought to provide precise details for each of the major events described in the Bible. As research has progressed and new discoveries have been made, the succeeding authors have revised previous material, adding fresh maps and texts to supply a more complete picture for many of the biblical narratives. This fifth edition will enrich the Bible study of all students, teachers and scholars who sincerely desire to bring the Bible down to earth. Rainey has added a number of maps from the broader Levantine history, placing the biblical events in a solid framework of Near Eastern culture and has thoroughly revised subsequent chapters. Notley has revised and enhanced the portions dealing with New Testament events. He has also extended the reach of the atlas to the beginning of the fourth century A.D. by adding a chapter on the Holy Land according to the Onomasticon of Eusebius, bishop of Caesarea.
