Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5HelpfulOctober 30, 2016Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Heres one of the most recent major Bible atlases out there. Written by Dr. John Beck, this volume has in its favor being written by someone who has spent much time in Bible lands and is clearly passionate about teaching biblical geography. You will appreciate as a Bible believer his consistent, conservative stance on the subjects you find in a Bible atlas. While he is a scholar, and while he has written in over 300 pages to the extent of particularly scholarly works, he has aimed at accessibility and serious Bible students. He has succeeded in reaching that audience and as a pastor I enjoyed the atlas too.
The maps look different than those in other volumes, and sometimes the scope, scale, and even color were not my favorite. As that is of course only a matter of taste, I should point out a careful accuracy in them. There were also plenty of them covering more biblical events than some other major atlases. No matter your own eye for graphics, the educational value of these maps are unmistakable.
What especially stood out in this volume to me was the pictures. They were vivid, copious, and gorgeous. I found them a visual treat. They even covered places most Bible tours never get to.
The writing struck me as that of a warmhearted preacher. In that many Bible students have learned much from preaching, I feel that increases its value for serious study. You probably cant go wrong with this Bible atlas.
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 Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
GMB4 Stars Out Of 5DISCOVERY HOUSE BIBLE ATLASJuly 1, 2015GMBQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I really enjoy being able to open my Bible and correlate it to the appropriate pages in the Bible Atlas. I like the way you can look up entries by Bible verse, or by the name of the place. Seeing actual photographs of these areas helps me picture what happened there so long ago. My only quibble is with the condition of the book when it arrived--there hadn't been enough packaging material in the box, and the bottom corners are damaged; also it looks like this book suffered a "cut" to the front cover (probably when being removed from the larger shipment). They are just cosmetic issues, and weren't severe enough to warrant returning the book.
