Winner of the ECPA Gold Medallion Book Award, the Holman Bible Atlas is the leading Bible atlas in the English language. Through the use of 132 full-color maps, more than 100 color photographs, timelines, chart summaries, and helpful sidebars, it places readers in the geographical, historical, and cultural contexts of the Bible and enables them to experience its perennially relevant message.

The book is presented in two broad divisions: physical geography of the Ancient Near East and biblical history periods from the patriarchs to the Christian era until Constantine. The content is arranged in line with specific biblical texts so that teachers, pastors, and students will see the key events of the Bible and Christianity with exceptional clarity.

There’s also a wealth of written and visual information regarding various people groups (Aramaeans, Moabites, Phoenicians, etc.), great empires (Egypt, Babylonia, Rome, etc.), and the road systems, agricultural year, and economic life of ancient civilizations based on archaeological recoveries.

A picture is worth 1000 words and for me, nothing comes near a good map for understanding context.

In my opinion, this is the best atlas out there with very beautifully clear colourful detailed maps!

In 2008, i decided it was time to get a good atlas rather than rely on the ones in the back of my printed study bibles. I spent a long time in foyles in london comparing all the different atlases on the market at the time and the holman stood out clearly with the most comprehensive list of maps, with the clearest cartography and the sort of detail i was looking for.

Since then, this has been my go to atlas and no matter what i was looking for, there was a map that covered it.

I have looked at other atlases as they have been published, but nothing comes close (the carta bible atlas has many more maps and covers the detail but is sadly still in monochrome. This is based on the initial reproduction descisions despite the move to modern colourful data projection and colour printing ...

This is based on the initial reproduction descisions despite the move to modern colourful data projection and colour printing technology, perhaps the next version will rectify this, but until then...).

In accordance i got the zondervan atlas but was very disappointed, not only by the limited number of maps compared to my holman, but also by the poor cartography and lack of detail on the maps. I quickly stopped using it and has been deleted from my mobile devices.

For the last few years i have used the esv study bible to follow talks on my mobile devices. The study bible has a better range of maps than the zondervan atlas and it scrolls with the bible text in a second window on iOS. The esv maps are ok and most have been included in the crossways atlas, but like the zondervan atlas, they are no where near as clear or detailed as the standard set by the holmans. (Currently, the holman Is classed as a general tool so it has to be opened on its own and cannot be opened in a second window on my ipad, but i live in hope that this will be resolved in a future version of ios accordance.)

when preparing sermons, i would still scan my holman atlas as they are the best for clarity with the most comprehensive set of maps. When i have projected or shared these maps, they have always been appreciated and commented on by the congregation or small group.

I now have my go to bible atlas with me whenever i need it on ios so am no longer restricted to just using my hard copy while at home plus i no longer have to edit the scans of my maps as accordance has worked marvels with the formatting of the maps. The maps look stunning full screen on a retina display or projected!

This is a truly excellent resource and it was definitely worth the wait for it to be available in accordance. Now i am just waiting to be able to open it in a second window with my text, an inconvenience i can live with while the development team work towards parity between all platforms.
