Yet another "scholarly" book that could be good, but decides to change the name of a nation. The Bible calls the land where Jesus lived "Israel." It was not called Palestine until later in history, and yet the "scholars" who produced this atlas call the land Palestine at the time of Jesus. I want to teach my kids truth, and calling the land where Jesus lived during the time of Jesus "Palestine" is inaccurate, deceptive, and wrong.
Wow! It's beautiful. Large and excellent print. I feel special looking at it and it has all kinds of things charted, graphed, and photos. This book could easily be $80 to $100 in price. It's that nice! Excellent work by the people who put this together and it is a privilege to have this resource. It's truthful and stresses accuracy in thought--not conjecture.
The hardcover book would be a better option. Although this book has a lot of useful and interesting information, I can only give it one star. Navigation in the eBook version is clumsy and I cannot zoom in or expand the maps on my reader, which makes viewing the map detail impossible.
Content is great (I agree w others reviews), but the graphics in electronic version is SO poor - you can't even read the name of the locations in the maps... :( And zooming doesn't help. So frustrating...
