This detailed handbook of the Biblical World presents the reader with a review of the ancient world, from the Fourth Millennium BCE through till the Bar Kochba Revolt of 132-135 CE.
The contents of the Bible are so closely related to the lands or cities in which the recorded events took place, and in which the documents themselves were written, that it helps greatly to know something about those lands and cities.
