Carta continues offering great titles to Bible students! Here are their latest two titles (distributed by Hendrickson):
Understanding Early Christianity: An Introductory Atlas by Franklin Littell
In 40 oversized pages you get an outstanding Introduction from the First to Fifth Centuries of Christianity. Setting Palestine in its proper context from just before Jesus, and discussing the influence of Judaism on early Christianity, the volume exposes us to the greater Greek influence of the times. From rising Hellenism to the evolving influence of Roman Rule, this work delves into the major influences of those times. Even the heresies that had such an effect are discussed.
Equally valuable are the profuse illustrations throughout coupled with fine Carta maps. This volume is excerpted from the large Carta’s Illustrated History of History and so provides a more economical way to study this critical time period.
This volume would be effective for many uses: Bible classes, homeschool, personal study, or a refresher for pastors. I recommend this volume.
Understanding Great People of the Bible: An Introductory Atlas to Biblical Biography by Paul H. Wright
This attractive, oversized-paged volume is a treat for the eyes. Mr. Wright brings much expertise to the table to make this volume valuable. Its unique approach of giving atlas information on Bible characters is helpful in that many study the Bible in character studies. Perhaps not every character is here, but those that are can have their study enriched.
Profusely illustrated in full color, this book is one you will enjoy. The greatest feature is that several of Carta’s very best maps are here. I personally find Carta’s maps the best we have today. Any one studying the Bible will be pleased to get this volume. I highly recommend it.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
