This superb atlas is a combination of biblical study, archaeological detective work and clear and concise mapmaking. Understandably, the Old Testament portion relies a lot on educated guesswork, but the book is plausible in explaining the migrations, trade routes and conflicts in Asia minor in the Bronze and Iron Ages. The later sections which include an explanation of the way and the reasons for the spread of Christianity in the 1st and 2nd centuries. Having said all that, I would imagine the book's comparative age (publ. 1986) would mean a revision updated to include the advances in our forensic archaeological techniques and the discoveries made recently, would be even better!
