"Understanding the Land of the Bible, written by one of the finest, most trustworthy scholars of the Old Testament living today, is the best short introduction to the subject of which I am aware. . . . exactly what pastors, seminarians, and Bible college students have long been looking for."

—Robert L. Reymond

". . . a much needed tool for digging into the Bible. Robertson shows that the study of geography is not drudgery in a dusty desert but a refreshing oasis of theological insight."

—Mark D. Futato

"Understanding the Land of the Bible is a guide to biblical Isreal and much more. It not only informs the reader about the cities, rivers, mountains, and climate of the land, but it does so while insightfully pointing out their biblical-theological significance. Find out about the setting for God’s great redemptive acts."

—Tremper Longman III
