Very useful for showing people just where the events being talked about took place. Many, too, seem to appreciate knowing just where the localities are on today's map. To use this useful tool, one does not need to have another set of maps beside him or her. The transparencies here are very useful.
This helps the understanding of the geography in Bible times contrasted with the 21st century. I had the standard edition (about 20 pages), loaned it out, and now needed a replacement. :-) I decided to replace it with the deluxe edition. The extra information is very helpful along with the option of being able to print from the CD for my classes. I also bought the pamphlet which is handy to carry all the time in my Bible case.
The great thing about this book is that it has a disclaimer saying it can be reproduced for classroom purposes. I was able to take it to a FedEx Office and Office Depot to make color copies of the maps for my Sunday School class.
