Reviews - What do customers think about Map-Deluxe Then And Now Bible Maps Book w/CD Rom?
Excellent for homeschool! Oct 29, 2008
I highly recommend the Deluxe Then and Now Bible Maps for homeschool use! The CD-ROM allows you to print out maps for more than one student and can be used for many different grade levels! We used them as templates to create our own poster-sized overlay maps!
Good tool for Bible study, but not as thorough Sep 3, 2008
This is a great tool for any student of the Bible. It's helpful for personal study, preparing presentations or teaching lectures. Having the CD along with the hard copy is most helpful for adapting the content to fit one's needs. Another great thing are the overlays with present day boundaries. This helps one put the Bible stories into our context.
The contents of the book and the CD has been published in detail by another reviewer so no need to repeat it here. But the one thing I wondered about is the selection of maps. While there are 40 or so maps, there are some maps that I wish there were at least twice as many. I was expecting more thorough coverage, perhaps not as detailed as in Aharoni's Carta Bible Atlas, but more of the basic stuff. For example I would like to see more on David's travels, Elijah and Elisha, Jeremiah, siege of Jerusalem, minor prophets, etc.
However, it is a good tool and I would recommend it. The fact that it includes multiple media is worth the money.
Bible Maps Aug 17, 2008
This is good to see the than and now of the middle east area of the bible.
Great Bible Study Help Jun 22, 2008
This book has been an excellent help in my Bible study, as it helps me locate the area I am reading about in the Bible and shows on the map overlay what that country is called now. Highly recommended.
A very useful collection Apr 7, 2008
The historical facts presented, with overlays of present-day situations are extremely useful for Bible study and teaching. The JPGs of the maps save so much of time in preparing notes and presentations.
