Description

Taking a narrative approach, The Lion Atlas of Bible History is a rich resource for all those interested in the Bible's history, geography and archaeology. It traces the unfolding of the major events in the Old and New Testaments, from Abraham's wanderings in Canaan and Egypt through to Paul's missions and founding of new churches. Special features on subjects such as the peoples and languages of the Bible run throughout the book, helping to deepen the reader's understanding of geography, landscape, climate, culture and religion. The text is complemented by 97 specially- commissioned maps to help the reader understand the Bible narrative and provide background information. In addition there are over 150 colour photographs, 7 panoramic illustrations and 17 site plans, plus a range of battle plans and small artworks.show more

About Paul Lawrence

Paul Lawrence was educated at Trinity school of John Whitgift in Croydon (1971-1978) and the University of Liverpool where he studied Akkadian, Hebrew and Near Eastern archaeology (1978-1982). He holds a Ph.D from the University of Liverpool for his work on Assyrian generals and their relationship to the king (1982-1985). He went with his newly married wife Jane (in 1984) to northern Iraq where they worked for two months on a rescue dig by the banks of the Tigris river some 30 km north of ancient Nineveh. Paul was later to work with the Turkish Bible Society in Istanbul checking a translation of the Old Testament into modern Turkish (1986-1999) (published 2001), and took the opportunity to travel extensively in the country and in some of its neighbours. He has since worked as a research assistant to Professor Kenneth Kitchen at the University of Liverpool on a collection of ancient Near Eastern treaties, covenant and laws. Four times he has taught an adult education class "Archaeology and the Bible" (Department of Continuing Education, University of Liverpool). Paul and Jane have four children, Esther, Sophia, Daniel and Joel.show more
