Rainey: Teaching History and Historical Geography

Eisenbrauns has announced a new book by Anson Rainey entitled Teaching History and Historical Geography of Bible Lands: A Syllabus.  Few details about the publication are available beyond its release date in December.  Rainey taught a popular course in advanced Historical Geography for decades at the Institute of Holy Land Studies (now Jerusalem University College).  A lifetime of research culminated in The Sacred Bridge, the most detailed resource on the subject ever written.  I look forward to his latest contribution.

  • I'd imagine its a version of the notes he offered for that class, including all of his own translations of the ancient texts we used in class.

  • Todd,

    It will be at SBL, although no price has been set on it yet. It is basically a version of his teaching notes.
