The maps are very clear and the information is calibrated very nicely for people who want an interesting guide for Biblre-reading and not much more.
The publishers seem to have made the all-important calculation that the weight and size of the book governs its usefulness. This books sits as light as a feather on an old godmother/aunt's lap yet gives her all the important journeys and map-dependent stories of the Bible. The pages are of thickish paper so the book will last long. The seven new copies are for my mum and her friends at a retirement home. I know they'll absolutely love it. Amazon delievered the atlases (which are very slim) well-packed so there're no bends.
The content is a little below what I expected.
(i) The route of the Exodus goes through the Reed sea, not the Red sea. Why do cartographers think God is unable to perform a miracle by taking the nation of Israel through the Red ses? I know people say that in the original Hebrew "Red and Reed" are very similar but the Greek of the Septuagent is very clear, they are completely different words, impossible to confuse, a bit like the difference between "Mediterranean and North sea" At least they could have indicated both routes and left it to us to decide.
(ii) I had hoped the division of the land amongst the tribes of Israel would have been clearer and the same goes for the Northern Kingdom of Israel and the Southern Kingdom of Judah whenthey were divided.
(iii) The symbols used for the cities of refuge are not that different from the symbols used for the other cities.
The notes are best used as a guide only, it may only cost a couple of pounds but care must be used as there are a number of inaccuracies, if you want accuracy then look to what the Scriptures teach.
It may sound as if I do not like this booklet but I actually find it quite useful and have ordered the booklets on the Tabernacle and the Temple as a result of it.
It is just about small enough to fit inside my Bible case (but I do have a large study Bible) but check out the dimensions (9" X 6 1/2" [KJV] or 23mm X 17mm [NIV] ) :)
