Review: The Westminster Historical Atlas to the Bible (Revised Edition) ed. by George Ernest Wright and Floyd Vivian Filson

Synopsis: An Atlas of the Bible, including pictures, diagrams, maps, and extensive writing about the history of the land, people, and the archeological discoveries.

Review: This is a thin, large volume, written in 1956 as an updated edition of the first one published in 1946. This is dense. Riff with technology jargon and complex vocabulary, this is intended for scholars and academics, not your average lay person. That being said, it's an excellent resource for those wishing to learn in depth about that archeology facts behind the bible. I would, of course, recommend getting a more update one. There have been many advanced in the last 70+ years.
