"East of the Jordan": Territories and Sites of the Hebrew Scriptures

"This volume is a convenient tool for all those interested in the location of territories and sites attested in the Bible as "East of the Jordan," i.e., in what is now The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. It presents the history of the identification of each biblical site and suggests the most likely location based on information provided by the biblical text, extra-biblical literary information, toponymic considerations, and archaeology. The volume treats all territories and sites of the Hebrew Scriptures in Transjordan, from the "Cities of the Plains" (e.g., Sodom and Gomorrah), the Exodus itineraries, and the territories and sites of the Israelite tribes (Reuben, Gad, and half Manasseh), to Ammon,"
