On the one-year anniversary of the ESV Study Bible, Justin Taylor reveals that a new Bible atlas is in production.
For those who have appreciated the maps and illustrations in the ESVSB, in June we’ll release the Crossway ESV Bible Atlas, which we’re very excited about. It was a huge project, but OT scholar and archaeologist John Currid (RTS-Charlotte) and cartographer David Barrett have done an outstanding job with it. There’s about 65,000 words explaining the geography and cultures of the biblical world, along with 175 full-color maps, including some in 3D, 70 photos, numerous recreations, a fully searchable CD, and a detailed 16.5 x 22-inch map of Palestine.
He does not mention that David Barrett is also the creator of the recently released Bible Mapper 4.
Readers here may be interested to know that the majority of the photos in the new atlas come from the image collection of BiblePlaces.com.
