Sometimes, finding hope in a tough situation is easier said than done. Gaining a Hopeful Spirit challenges us to receive hope from the Lord. When life leaves us desolate and foggy, the Lord wants to pick us back up and show us how hopeful we really can be. Joni has helped countless people pick their heads up when the road ahead seemed bleak. As a woman who has been through a tragic accident that left her quadriplegic, she can speak first-hand about Satan's schemes that will keep you from living a life of worship.
How can you be a source of joy for someone else when you are going through a hard time? Joni draws you closer to God as you realize that the hope that can get you through even the toughest of times only comes from God our Father. After reading this pamphlet, you'll be able to help pass on the hope to friends and family members experiencing hopeless times.

Jimmy ReaganWest Union, OHAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Helpful atlasMarch 24, 2014Jimmy ReaganWest Union, OHAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Would you like a fine Bible Atlas written by someone who has been immersed in the lands of the Bible? Then the Rose Then and Now Bible Atlas is a great option for you. Substantial at 272 pages, yet accessible even for newer Bible students, we have a real asset here.
Perhaps you saw the earlier Rose Then and Now Bible Maps. I always felt it was more of a Sunday School item than one for the serious Bible student, though the modern overlays are a brilliant idea. Frankly, there were just too few of them and I would have preferred a different scale at times. There are about the same number of overlays, but we have a fine atlas too. Really, the overlays are just a nice addition to the atlas itself.
What we have now is Rose Publishing joining the big boys in the atlas world. What is unique to this volume among the atlases out there is the historical detail given. Paul Wright does a great job of relating the biblical narrative as he progresses incorporating well the geographic details. The history begins with the Patriarchs. There is no mention of Adam or Genesis 1-11, pro or con. My guess is that there is little real geographic knowledge of those times.
Still, Scripture pervades the volume. In the chapter on Jesus, He is described as God in human form. The entire atlas takes a historical approach. There are no sections on parts of the Bible like, say, the Minor Prophets. Their time period is covered in the historical flow, just not the books themselves. Most atlases take the other approach, but I am glad to have one from this distinct vantage point.
The maps themselves are from Carta, which is the gold standard of Bible maps. The pictures are satisfactory and the maps plentiful enough to go along with a rich text. Most people just try to get one quality Bible Atlas. This volume is a contender for the Bible Student.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.
RethaSouth AfricaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Awesome atlas that brings history to lifeMarch 4, 2014RethaSouth AfricaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Do you read the Bible and wonder what the weather was like, what type of soil the Israelites had to contend with or where exactly did these specific events take place? At a glance the Rose Then And Now Bible Map Atlas reveals these mysteries. Although the Israelites lived centuries ago, their lives and times become a reality when peering through plastic overlays of modern day maps on top of biblical maps centuries ago.
The Old Testament timeline cleverly combines Bible history, time span markers and year markers. The Bible books are displayed according to the historical settings, not when the books were written.
One of the maps that fascinated me the most was the one on Culture and Commerce in the Ancient Near East. In addition to the different trade routes, the map displays the different commodities by way of tiny images, e.g. for horse breeding, camel breeding, and where different mines were.
The route travelled by Abraham took him through fertile lands with abundant water as well as the hard limestone and hill countries of Israel. His daily challenges to keep his tribe safe, such as finding grazing for his livestock, digging wells for water, and protecting it, becomes a reality with the different land context maps displaying the geography, the topical surfaces, and climate.
Another example of the Bible Map Atlas's uniqueness is a map highlighting events in the life of John, for example where he met Jesus for breakfast. Each chapter written on historical people and events contain relevant maps, tables, Bible passage references, and images.
I highly recommend, the Rose Then And Now Bible Map Atlas for its uniqueness, researched information, relevance, and picturing the life and times of the Bible. It draws you in; you will spend hours in these pages without realizing it.

paul dareWestland, MIAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Outstanding ResourceFebruary 25, 2014paul dareWestland, MIAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Another wonderfully made, helpful and encouraging resource from Rose Publishing. The Rose Then and Now Bible Map Atlas is a beautifully hardbound volume that belongs on the shelf of any Bible student today. This 272 page text book by PhD Phil H. Wright is packed with beautiful color photographs of the Middle East along with over 100 full color maps. There are eight (if I counted them all) plastic overlays that give the reader a great compare and contrast view of ancient cities and regions with modern day countries and capitols.
Dr. Wright uses the flow of the books of the Bible to shed insight on the lay of the land and it's importance during each epoch of Biblical history. Scholarly and robust articles on the patriarchs, Moses, David, Jesus, Paul and more, explore the details of each period of history and paint a sweeping visual survey of the Bible for the reader.
This is a great book and would make a wonderful gift to a high school graduate, heading off to Bible college. It would also make a great coffee table book for any Christian family.
I can highly recommend another great publication from the team at Rose Publishing. Get your Then and Now Bible Atlas today.

I have a Samsung 10.1 Tablet. I have found that a number of ebook inserts in cbd's ereader are illegable so I am not sure if its the reader or publishers fault. If the maps are illegable there is no point buying the atlas. CBD kindly refunded purchase price.
