The Fourth Edition of the Oxford Bible Atlas has been revised throughout from the Third Edition, which was prepared by John Day. Day worked on the First Edition (Oxford University Press, 1962), edited by Herbert G. May with the assistance of G. N. S. Hunt in consultation with R. W. Hamilton.
Special thanks must be expressed to a number of people who have been instrumental in bringing this work to completion: Terry Hardaker (of Oxford Cartographers, www.oxfordcarto.com) for his work on the maps, Sandra Assersohn for researching the illustrations, Ann Hall and Alan Lovell for preparing the indexes, Lucy Qureshi (formerly of OUP) for co‐ordinating the project during much of the production time, and Dorothy McCarthy, Sue Tipping and Rachel Woodforde (all of OUP) who have contributed in their various ways to the production of the volume. All have shown a real commitment to, and enthusiasm for, the preparation of this fourth edition. Their advice, encouragement and, not infrequently, their patience are gratefully acknowledged.
