Posted by Charles Foster Kent

Geography has within the past few years won a new place among the sciences It is no longer regarded as simply a description of the earth s surface, but as the foundation of all historical study Only in the light of their physical setting can the great characters, movements, and events of human history be rightly understood and appreciated Moreover, geography is now defiGeography has within the past few years won a new place among the sciences It is no longer regarded as simply a description of the earth s surface, but as the foundation of all historical study Only in the light of their physical setting can the great characters, movements, and events of human history be rightly understood and appreciated Moreover, geography is now defined as a description not only of the earth and of its influence upon man s development, but also of the solar, atmospheric, and geological forces which throughout millions of years have given the earth its present form Hence, in its deeper meaning, geography is a description of the divine character and purpose expressing itself through natural forces, in the physical contour of the earth, in the animate world, and, above all, in the life and activities of man Biblical geography, therefore, is the first and in many ways the most important chapter in that divine revelation which was perfected through the Hebrew race and recorded in the Bible Thus interpreted it has a profound religious meaning, for through the plains and mountains, the rivers and seas, the climate and flora of the biblical world the Almighty spoke to men as plainly and unmistakably as he did through the voices of his inspired seers and sages No other commentary upon the literature of the Bible is so practical and luminous as biblical geography Throughout their long history the Hebrews were keenly attentive to the voice of the Eternal speaking to them through nature Their writings abound in references and figures taken from the picturesque scenes and peculiar life of Palestine The grim encircling desert, the strange water courses, losing themselves at times in their rocky beds, fertile Carmel and snow clad Hermon, the resounding sea and the storm lashed waters of Galilee are but a few of the many physical characteristics of Palestine that have left their indelible marks upon the Jewish and Christian Scriptures The same is true of Israel s unique faith and institutions Biblical geography, therefore, is not a study by itself, but the natural introduction to all other biblical studies It is a pleasure to publish this new, high quality, and affordable edition of this timeless book.
