This major revision of the Gold Medallion Award-winning Zondervan NIV Atlas of the Bible is a visual feast that will help you experience the geography and history of Scripture with unprecedented clarity.

The first section of the Atlas introduces the ‘playing board’ of biblical history---using maps and photographic images to help the lands of the Bible come alive. The next section, arranged historically, begins with Eden and traces the historical progression of the Old and New Testaments. It provides an engaging, accurate, and faithful companion to the Bible---illuminating the text with over one hundred full-color, multidimensional maps created with the help of Digital Elevation Modeling data. It concludes with chapters on the history of Jerusalem, the disciplines of historical geography, and the most complete and accurate listing and discussion of place-names found in any atlas.

Throughout the Atlas, innovative graphics, chronological charts, and over one hundred specially selected images help illuminate the geographical and historical context of biblical events. The Zondervan Atlas of the Bible is destined to become a favorite guide to biblical geography for students of the Bible. This accessible and complete resource will assist you as you enter into the world of the Bible as never before.

Atlas is defined as a book of maps. For me, the most important things in an atlas are clear detailed maps and a sufficient number to show me where the events are taking place in the passage I am reading. I do not consider that the maps in this atlas are clear, detailed or cover the events in the bible in sufficient number. This review refers to the maps in the atlas.

I have been using a hard copy of the Holman Bible Atlas by Brisco since about 2008 and it has never let me down with a good selection of very clear maps with good detail. It is now available in accordance! Just search brisco, or holman atlas!

I am relying on my ios device more and wanted an e-atlas for maps to see where things are in relation to each other. After much research i got the zondervan one. However, i found myself repeatedly returning to my hard copy of the Holman as the detail or information i have been used to is missing from the Zondervan.

I am relying on my ios device more and wanted an e-atlas for maps to see where things are in relation to each other. After much research i got the zondervan one. However, i found myself repeatedly returning to my hard copy of the Holman as the detail or information i have been used to is missing from the Zondervan. I would really like to be able to include images in this review to demonstrate the differences, for example, zondervan has a single map covering jesus entire ministry with major routes and a few cities. It doesnt really add anything as other maps have the major routes. By comparison, the holman has five different maps each fully annotated with references linking positions to those specified in specific gospel passages.

The Zondervan Atlas just doesn’t have enough maps (just over 100) and they are not detailed enough for me. There is no index so you have to rely on search. Many times the word I use isn’t in the title or text so it takes several attempts to find something that may be relevant.

I stopped using the Zondervan Atlas and used the esv study bible for maps on my ios devices. Esv has nearly 200 maps and a brilliant index so you can easily find what you are looking for as they are in sequence with the books in the bible. It includes virtually all the maps of the crossways esv atlas.

The study bible also has the advantage of giving information on the passage i am reading and frequently the map is there as well rather than all being at the back as in some study bibles. This makes scrolling with the passage so much easier. Many of the maps in the gospels have been duplicated for each gospel so they scroll and there are 3 covering the ministry of jesus ( cf 1 in Zondervan and 5 for the excellent Holman).

However, the Holman atlas is now available in accordance and has maps which are clearer, more detailed, and better in every respect so my advice is to get the excellent holman atlas instead.

Other alternatives you may want to consider include:

sacred bridge is just packed with information and maps and is my go to resource for reading round the subject on ios. I haven't really used the text or images in the Zondervan Atlas which just languishes now in my library unused. As can be seen from the screenshot of the product, I am sure the text, approximate 25 charts and the 100+ high quality images are very good but feel that they have taken precedence at the expense of the maps which for me is the primary purpose of an atlas.

If colour maps are not important, then consider the Carta Bible Atlas

If iOS isnt important, there is also the accordance atlas you should consider. Also consider getting the graphics package which has a number of resources.

But my advice is that there are better atlases in accordance and only get this if you want multiple ones with additional text and photographs and are not worried about the quality of the maps. (Note, even the sample page above shows one of the excellent photos, not a map!)

I have owned the print version of Zondervan Atlas of the Bible for about four years and it is an excellent Bible Atlas. I have wanted to take it along on my Bible Land Tours but the print volume is quite large and heavy. When I saw it released this morning I purchased it immediately. In the future I look forward to taking it with me on tours on my iPad.

It has superior maps and illustrations that can be dropped into presentation software and the text by Dr. Rasmussen is current and clearly written.

I highly recommend this module.
