Maps are unreadable on any device. The resolution is far too low, so zooming just makes the text blurry. Shame because the text is interesting. Refunded after three days - thanks Amazon!

I was very satisfied when I looked through the Fourth edition. I find it so much better than the Third. I imagine that whether one is satisfied depends on why one bought the book in the first place. I bought it primarily for the maps and they are exactly what I have been looking for. When you work with the book you realise that the accumulated work that must have gone into placing the ancient cities and towns on the maps correctly from the historical narratives and other contemporary sources must have been incredibly time-consuming and the book is obviously worth far more than the market value.

It was a pleasant surprise to find that there are also well written descriptions of various places based on various Bible events and stories that make the maps come alive. It is also useful that there are many pictures of various sites and artifacts of historical importance. These are evidently obtained from various sources. To send a photographer on an extended trip to capture all the landscapes and ruins and artifacts would have been extremely costly and doubled the price of the book. Most of the pictures have quite obviously been acquired from picture bureaus, museums or previous collections. When the pictures show geological or geographical features that would be difficult to obtain photographs of, depending on the time of year and the angle of the sun, etc., most are excellent and others are of varying quality. The slightly bluish bias that one commentator complained about in some of the landscape pictures could be due to the type of film used some decades ago. This Atlas first came out in 2007 but some of the pictures could easily be from from an earlier decade. I seem to remember that Agfa colour film used to have a slightly bluish tinge to it.

I was very pleased to find that The Oxford Bible Atlas had been updated to a Fourth Edition, having been a possessor of the Third Edition for some years. I placed an order looking forward to pleasant time perusing its pages. I am sad to say that the general quality of the paper, printed pictures and text is so poor that I would not encourage anyone to purchase one without seeing it first. There are a number of errors:

*page 17 is spoiled by printers ink smudge on the bottom margin of the page and also within the text.

*p. 65 has no immediate continuation on p. 66 an the reader has to search for it.

* the majority of landscape pictures are too 'blue' giving an overall blue effect.

* some of the pages are in a strange and contrasting an random cream colour that is in noticeable contrast to the majority of white pages

* the quality of the paper is probably 90gm or 100gm weight which will not withstand heavy usage by Bible students

* the stitch binding is of very poor quality thread and tension so that the pages are not secure.

I would not advise anyone to purchase this Atlas without seeing one first and checking with the seller.

However, that said, the content is excellent and informative and only adds to the disappointment of the product quality.

My volume was printed through Phoenix Offset, China.

Brilliant atlas, very user friendly. Nicely set out in a thoughtful arrangement. Would recommend it to anyone wanting to put places to names.

The book was well advertised on the internet and is well written. It presents a good overview of the historical content connected with the maps illustrated.
Many of the maps have been taken by satallite which gives a good picture of how a certain country relates to its neighbours.
It is an ideal book for modern Bible students.

Attractively produced and available at an accessible price level. Most probably a key element in any basic Bible study library. Haven't used it as much as I thought I would but great to keep as a reference point.

I bought this to expand my knowledge of biblical times, and to put events in a geographical perspective. It is accessible and beautifully illustrated. I do feel the maps could have been bigger.
