Hello,

 

I am looking for a biblical atlas that is geared toward scholars.  Any recommendations?

 

Blessings!

The Sacred Bridge: the very best in Biblical Geography and background.

Does this atlas treat the NT as much as it does the OT (so I have heard)?  If not, what other additional scholarly atlas can be used to treat in more detail the NT?  Blessings!

Sacred Bridge covers up to the Bar Kochba revolts of 130-135

 

It is of the Bible lands, not (for example) Paul’s missionary journeys

For a broader NT focus, I have found New Bible Atlas © 1985 by University and Colleges Christian Fellowship to be more than adequate, but I must admit, I use the Accordance maps module more than anything else;

I whole heartedly recommend both of the above mentioned.... I have heard good things about 

ZONDERVAN ATLAS OF THE BIBLE but I do not own it....

This is a very good atlas.
Beitzel, Barry J.
2009 The New Moody Atlas of the Bible. Chicago: Moody.
 
 
This atlas treats the New Testament time periods. It is large-format, and contains only maps--no text.
Talbert, Robert J. A., ed.
2000 Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World. Princeton, N.J.: Princeton University Press.
 
An iPad version of Barrington is available that was given a positive review here
 
Finally, this is a scholarly atlas chock-full of information. Again, all maps--no text (except the legends). I believe all the legends and the index are in English, as well as German.

I have the zonvervan atlas of the bible as i had heard good things about it but i'm very disastified with it and wouldnt reccomend it.

Its ok and better than nothing on an ios device. I needed to look up philips journey this morning in church and found what i was after. But i have a hard copy of holmans bible atlas by brisco and that is still my go to resource when at home and the zondervan didnt really give me the detail i was after.

I am looking at carta again and sacred bridge still looks the best though they have a couple of other atlases which are worth looking at.

Accordance atlas also looks good but not for ios which excludes it for me.
