This atlas is virtually useless. While the product is very well created and laid out, and the index in the back lists page numbers for all items, THERE ARE NO PAGE NUMBERS ON THE PAGES. This makes the atlas almost unusable. I was very disappointed in this product. I went on the virtual view and it is the same way. I went to the store that carries these and they are all the same.

This book makes the Bible become alive in a different way as if one were reading it alone. Graphics, maps, and explanations are superb and render proper reverence to the Bible. This book is a must have for the serious bible student at any level.

Our biggest concern with the Atlas is that in the back under Index of Maps when a page is indicated for a map of a town,there is no map on the page noted. I had hoped to get an Atlas that would give me a map for every location noted in Scripture. Otherwise it is a very informative Atlas.

I am only about half way through the atlas but so far it has been very interesting. Even better than I hoped it would be.

Per the Author's Preface "...this Atlas is written for the interested lay person and/or beginning level student of the Bible in colleges and seminaries."To that extent it fulfills the author's intent; if you are looking for more you will have to look elsewhere.The maps are often too small. Special maps show topography but are too small to be really helpful.The color maps, photos, and charts are helpful.I think more could have been said about the various cities, such as their histories, why they were strategic, regional trade and international commerce, etc.For a beginner's level book this is good.

This is a great reference book for Biblical studies. It covers from general overview down to very detailed information. Suitable for both pastors and laymen.
