Book Giveaway! Zondervan Atlas of the Bible

I have received a copy of the revised edition of the Zondervan Atlas of the Bible from the kind folks at Zondervan. This is a really nice atlas! Dismiss your thoughts of how this is just another book full of maps. It is so much more! It not only contains numerous maps, it also has hundreds of color photos that help to bring the geography of ancient Palestine alive. It also contains extensive explanations of the geography that helps to place the stories of the Bible in historical as well as geographical context. It is complemented by a handy set of indexes and a geographical dictionary.

This is not your grandfather's Bible Atlas!

What makes this volume even more valuable is its author, Carl G. Rasmussen (Bethel University). I have been acquainted with Carl and his geographic expertise since 1993 when I participated in an historical and geographical course in Israel. Carl has lived or traveled in the Holy Land for over 40 years. His firsthand knowledge makes this a first rate atlas. (Check out his Holy Land Photos)

This is a $50 value ($27.97 on Amazon). Oh, did I mention that it also comes with a free poster of New Testament Jerusalem?

So here is how you enter. Simply leave your full name in the comment section of the blog and indicate that you would like to be entered into the contest.

The contest will close Friday, December 10 at 11:55 pm (EST). No entires after that time will be accepted. On Saturday I will use Random.org to choose the lucky winner and will announce it on the blog.

  29. I never turn down an opportunity to get another book and this sounds like a good one. I just checked my shelves and I can't believe I don't have one. Nelson says I probably loaned it to someone...

  33. Do no enter me. Do not select someone at random, since chance does not really exist. A better way to give it away would be to truly find someone who fits the two following qualifications: 1) Is truly in need, i.e., someone could really does not have the money to buy something like that; and 2) someone who would greatly benefit from it. I fit neither of those categories since I make quite a bit and could purchase any book I want, and even though I am passionate about biblical studies, the book would most likely sit on my shelf for most its life (like the majority of books I own). I bet my personal description fits the majority of the people asking for the book.
