Dr. Wright finds his time in Jerusalem to be very fulfilling. "As a written record of God's work in the world, the Bible is a book that is quite real. It is a privilege to be able to explore the realities of the world of the Bible with so many students who are eager to learn on-site. There are clear connections between the ways that the people who lived in the lands of the Bible thought about God and organized their lives in ancient times, and how folks living in the same places respond to the Divine tug today. The longer I live in Jerusalem, the more I am learning to appreciate the consistent call of God on His people, and our responsibility to live whole lives that are characterized by shalom, the peace that only He can give." sha'alu shalom yerushalayim, yishlayu ohavyich "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, may those who love you be at ease . . ." (Psalm 122:6) "It is a pleasure to recommend this atlas by the biblical scholar and experienced historical geographer, Paul Wright. Nothing is more important than the relationships of the great men and women of the Bible with God and with the land that God gave them. Wright provides the best possible introduction, with outstanding texts, maps, and photos, for the adventure of guiding the reader through the stories of the Bible." Richard S. Hess, Ph.D., Earl S.
