    This thorough introduction to biblical lands is chock full of full-color photos and maps. Though definitely from a secular perspective (true accounts are sometimes called myths, biblical authority is frequently questioned, and an old earth is assumed), this could be a useful resource for learning about the landscape of Palestine and surrounding areas during different periods of history, as well as the general influence different cultures had on each other during those times. This book doesnt stop with the New Testament. It covers events from the early church through the recent Israeli conflicts. 139 pgs., pb. Chad

    While this atlas has a fairly unassuming look to it, and a price-point to match, it actually contains a stunning array of information. At 112 pages, you might just get more for your money out of this atlas than from most. A helpful highlighted tab section printed across the top of each open spread tells you exactly what you are looking at. The first tab, of course (after the table of contents), is how to use the atlas; the next tab contains the legend/projection/scale. Then comes latitude and longitude, map types, the solar system map, the world physical map, the world political map, the worlds ocean floors, earth dynamics (earthquake and volcano zones), geographic features (the only section I found that refers to millions of years), climate, vegetation/land cover, environmental issues, population, population issues, languages/literacy/religions, land use/GDP/employment, mining/energy, information sharing, and transportation. The continent section spends the most time on North America, with maps detailing the following: political, physical, population, land use and resources, climate, and vegetation. The US is looked at in detail through the following: state flags, physical and political maps and facts, climate, vegetation, land use, energy and minerals, transportation, population, and income. Canada and Mexico both have close-ups showing political and physical country maps, with flags and crests. The other continents have the following maps: political, physical, population, GDP, land use, climate, vegetation, and environmental issues. This atlas gives you a really thorough overview of the world using thematic, political, and physical maps and deals with the world mostly at the continental level. The only regions that are looked at more closely are the US, Canada, and Mexico. A very colorful, easy-to-use resource. Zach

    This atlas from Rand McNally bridges the gap between simpler atlases geared to younger students and adult reference-only atlases. Like its adult cousins, this atlas is packed full of colorful maps and handy reference material; however, it also includes some student-friendly features such as charts/graphs, narrative text, and continent question and answer pages (on geographical, political, economic, cultural, and historical topics) which give students the opportunity to learn and study the material, instead of merely looking up items for reference. The atlas begins with an overview of map terminology. Next are sections on the earth/solar system, plate tectonics, climate, and other topics pertaining to physical geography. A twelve-page countries and flags of the world section presents basic information about 199 countries. Seven world maps are included: political, physical, climate, vegetation, population density, environments, and time zones. Detailed political and physical maps are provided for each of the seven continents and the U.S., plus thematic maps and select regional/country maps. Some examples of the continent thematic maps include: climate, population, environments/land use, or special topics specific to the continent (i.e. destruction of the rain forest in South America).

    As far as biblical atlases go, this one really caught my attention. Its clean, uncluttered layout, and colorful, clearly labeled maps combine with numerous photographs and illustrations to deliver a uniquely vibrant look at the lands described in the Bible. The 75 maps explore biblical history from the time of Abraham to the Revelation, while the accompanying texts and charts help to explain what the reader is looking at. A great companion to any Bible study, and an intriguing book to simply browse through. 175 pgs, pb. Zach

    This colorful atlas is a great way to introduce students to the basic geographic features of the United States. The atlas is divided into several sections. The first section, Map Skills, explains how to read a map. It briefly covers the topics of scale, latitude/longitude, and different types of map projections. The next section, U.S. Themes, has a political map, physical map, and themed maps that show climate, elevation, average temperature, land use, population density, and more. The United States History section presents maps that represent places, populations, or events at different times in our countrys history. For example, there are maps that show the routes of early explorers, battles of the American Revolution, the Underground Railroad, and the Vietnam War. The U.S. Regions section takes a closer look at six areas of the country - the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, West, and D.C., Puerto Rico and other islands. Each region has a political map, images of state flags, list of largest cities, and small thematic maps that show land use, population density, and average temperature/precipitation. An index at the end of the section gives the page number, latitude, and longitude for cities, landforms and bodies of water. The book concludes with the Atlas section, which contains political and physical maps of the world, the Western Hemisphere, the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. It also has a map of U.S. time zones and an index. 104 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    In a remarkably fluid manner, this reference shows the political, religious, and trade changes occurring in Europe, North Africa and the Near East from A.D. 362 to A.D. 1483. There are 47 maps in all, arranged in six sections. Each section features five to six maps, spaced in intervals of about 40 years which show the political boundaries of the area at that time. The last map or two included in each section depicts the territories of Christianity and Islam, and various other maps may also be included that show trade routes and cities of the period, population of various regions, or further exploration of the world. Each two-page spread consists of the map on the right-hand page, with the left-hand page providing a detailed commentary on the changes that are reflected on the map. While the commentary may be a little advanced for younger students, the maps provide an easier-to-understand visual look at the known world of the period, and could be used as visuals for a wider range of students with some explanation. The maps themselves feature black-and-white land territories and blue bodies of water. Various shading patterns make it easy to distinguish the territories of different kingdoms and peoples. Additional notes and an index are also included. A fairly compact guide, this would make an excellent supplemental resource to any in-depth study of medieval history, where students can actually "see" the shift from Roman to early modern times. - Jess

    This guidebook has a contemporary, magazine feel to it and provides a great introduction to the books of the Bible, as well as Biblical answers to many questions students ask these days. The first third of the book discusses different issues alphabetically, from abortion to youth. For each topic (like drinking, humility, lust, popularity, tattoos, worry, etc.), the book gives a few verses focused on that issue. Some topics include a short explanation of the verses and many of the more controversial topics (like drinking alcohol, evolution, hell, and war) provide verses and discussion for both sides of an argument. Please note that if you have specific views on these topics, you should make them clear to your children the book just describes the arguments that people make and lists verses that different Christians use for different sides of the argument. The rest of the book is a short explanation about what the 66 books of the Bible are about. A 2-page spread is provided for each book of the Bible summing up the book, detailing who wrote it, when it was written, and when and where it took place, listing the most famous quote from the book, and summarizing the biggest scene and biggest idea from the book. A full-color picture is also presented on each spread, which is either a reproduction of famous artwork or an illustration that pictures a scene found in the featured book. With extra features like quick biographies on 50 Bible heroes and jerks, a timeline of Bible events, and a comparison of a dozen Bible translations, this easy-to-use, modern guide is a good reference for students looking for an explanation of the basic books and topics of the Bible.

    With the huge number of atlases available at the current time, it can be hard to decide which one you want for your family. Hopefully our descriptions make that decision process a little easier, and maybe helpful information like the following does too: first published in 1923, this atlas has gone on to become the number-one college reference atlas used in the United States. Must be pretty good, huh? Well, read on and see what you think. Probably the most comprehensive and up-to-date atlas of world geography that we sell, this one will meet all your needs from a basic reference tool for finding countries, capitals, cities, mountains, rivers, and oceans, to a detailed study on, quite literally, hundreds of different aspects of worldwide geography. A few pages are given over in the introduction to explain a number of key things about maps: longitude and latitude, geographic grid, scale, projections (with closer descriptions of the 10 different types used in this atlas), types of thematic maps, and the map legend (or key). The rest of the atlas is divided into three sections World Maps, Regional Maps, and Tables and Indexes. The World Maps section is a collection of dozens and dozens of mostly thematic maps, but it also includes a political world map, a physical world map, and three ocean floor maps. The other maps in this section include world landforms; tectonics, volcanoes, and earthquakes; climatic regions; temperatures; pressure, winds, and seasonal precipitation; annual precipitation and ocean currents; oceanic environments; natural vegetation; soils; ecoregions; population density; birth rate / death rate; natural increase / life expectancy; gross domestic product / literacy; languages / religions; urbanized population / nutrition; physicians / HIV infection; major agricultural regions; 20 different maps showing worldwide production of 43 different major agricultural products; worldwide forested lands and products; 13 maps showing the mining of metals, fuels, precious metals, and energy production and consumption; exports / imports; military power / womens rights; alliances; refugees / major conflicts; telecommunications; earth-sun relationships; and world time zones. Where pertinent, the information on these thematic maps is also shown broken down into production or consumption by country. The Regional Maps section then looks at each of the continents in turn, as well as the major oceans. North America is more closely studied than the others, with 50 different thematic maps of the US providing an in-depth look at the geographic aspects of employment, transportation, climate, and other topics (thematic maps for the other continents range between 8 and 13). Not counting these thematic maps, there are over 130 pages of world reference maps ranging from continent maps to countries, states, regions, and cities. The final section contains the tables of statistics world political information, world demographic, world agriculture, world economy, world environment, world comparisons, and principle cities of the world; and indexes glossary of foreign geographical terms, abbreviations and pronunciations of geographic names, 30,000 longitude and latitude locations, and a subject index that no atlas would be without. Complete, colorful, and up-to-date, this atlas is a very easy-to-use resource that will help every reader or student of geography get to know our world. 400 pgs, hc. ~ Zach

    So much of the Bible deals with geography: people coming from here and going there; this land being given to or taken from these people; conquerors taking over, empires crumbling, and missionary journeys of the apostles - its a lot to try and visualize these changes and movements. However, when you have a book with 132 color maps, 140 color photographs, and concise text explaining the geographical and historical context, the task of understanding biblical geography becomes much simpler. The atlas describes first the biblical setting of the ancient Near East, the natural regions of Palestine, and life in ancient Palestine, and then goes through the Old Testament period and the New Testament period through to the third century A.D. With brief articles about geographic regions and cultures, historical charts, and indexes to help you find people and places, this is a very comprehensive Bible atlas. ~ Zach

    What Cindy Wiggers has done for the geography of the world and U.S. through her other Trail Guides, she brings to this unique and exciting study of the lands of the Bible and invites you to come and explore the geography, culture, and history of the land and people. Using the three-part approach from the other Trail Guides, this one incorporates "Geography Trails," mapping activities and projects, as well as a literature unit based on the Bronze Bow. "Geography Trails" are daily drill questions included at different ability levels that give the students an opportunity to use their Bibles and atlases to identify landmarks and places in the Bible and to get a closer look at the and "feel" for the lands of the Bible, as well as providing practice in finding their way around their Bibles and atlases. For each week of "Geography Trails", there is an equivalent "Points of Interest" page, where students will fill in landmarks, cities, and label reproducible blank outline maps, as well as multiple suggested activities for each region which may include making a 3-D map, creating crossword puzzles, research specific topics, make models, and much, much more. Students will also maintain a geography notebook, where they will add any maps they create, reports, drawings, activities, Bible timelines, and anything else theyve worked on during the study. The remaining portion of the study consists of the Bronze Bow study. For every four chapters read in the book, there is an accompanying page of discussion questions, mapping activities to locate and label locations described in the book, questions and activities based on the characters in the book, vocabulary, compiling lists, and researching topics relevant to the book. The appendix contains reproducible forms, templates and maps including a grid, timeline page, lined report pages, several outline maps of the region, as well as recipes, a list of animals mentioned in the Bible with verse references, and answers to the daily quiz questions. For a really in-depth, complete and well-rounded study of the Bible lands, you cant beat this for map practice, activity suggestions, and enjoyment. Cindy Wiggers and Dianna Wiebe have put together another winner in the Trail Guide series. Required resources for this study include a Bible, an age-appropriate Bible atlas (two recommended ones are listed below), a set of Bible Activity Maps and The Bronze Bow. Recommended (but not required) resources have also been listed. Items with no prices are items that are unavailable or ones that we are not able to carry. - Jess

    This 144 page atlas has over 100 maps created especially for students that may not be as detailed as maps in other atlases, but when combined with other aspects in this book, provide students with a well-rounded look of the world. Like most atlases, political and physical maps of the world and the continents are included, but this one doesnt label as many cities or landmarks. Whats great about this atlas is that parts of it have an encyclopedia feel to it, with over sixty full-color photographs of people, plants, landmarks, and animals native to different countries and regions. There are thematic sections on environmental hotspots, refugees and conflicts, diffusion of popular culture, and more. Charts and graphs display interesting data and statistics, and there is a section colorfully displaying flags of all 192 countries. This is a great basic atlas for students and is full of interesting information from countries and cultures around the world.

    I love a good map for showing kids that the places they are studying are real. These four maps come with a teaching guide on how to get the most of them. I would recommend having them laminated since they are folded in the package and could tear if handled too much. Post them on the wall in your learning space to show children: The Land Where Jesus Lived, Jerusalem in Jesus Time, Early Christian Communities, and The Exodus and the Exile. You get a teachers guide with explanations to best use each map. They even separate lesson ideas for younger and older children. Bible verses referring to locations on the maps are in the guide. ~ Sara

    When reading the Bible, sometimes it is hard for kids (and adults) to see the big picture. This big (and I mean BIG) Bible time line will help you see when the Bible events happened in relation to each other and how those events fit together to tell one BIG story! This reproducible book contains 68 11 x 8 1/2 pages. Each page highlights two major events, including a scripture reference, estimated time in history, and a black-and-white cartoon illustration that can be colored. When all the pages are hung side-by-side in chronological order it creates a 60 long time line. This timeline begins with Adam and Eve in the garden, and finishes with John being exiled on Patmos writing Revelation. Some fun activities are outlined in the introduction that will help you make the most of this great teaching tool. No matter how you put this time line to use, your children will appreciate the simple way it communicates the big picture of what the Bible is all about. Pb, 78 pgs. elise

    (description by publisher - stay tuned for our own!)

    When Jesus spoke to his disciples just prior to his resurrection, He told them that the Old Testament is about Himself and His Gospel (Luke 24:27; 44-47). As we read the Old Testament, we are confronted with a massive ancient history, spanning over thousands of years. Hundreds of names, dozens of foreign nations, laws, sacrifices, and feasts all comprise the tome of ancient Scripture. What does this have to do with Christ and His Gospel? Volume 1 of The Bible in the Ancient World will provide your students with a study of Old Testament history and geography, and how these background details are a necessary part of understanding the Gospel. In 18 easily completed lessons, the student is introduced to a full layout of Biblical History as they read through Scripture, background lessons, and complete map projects. Additionally, dozens of photos from Bible lands are presented to the student along the way. In completing this curriculum, your student will gain a firm grasp on how the historical and geographical details of the Old Testament are essential components of that which Jesus says, "concerns himself."

    (description by publisher - stay tuned for our own!)

    When Jesus came into the world, He came specifically to the Jewish people (John 1:1; Galatians 4:4). However, the New Testament world of the Jews was very different than it had been in the Old Testament. Now the Jews had been affected by Hellenism, the Maccabean Revolt, and the Roman Invasion. Furthermore, extensive changes within Judaism had taken place during the time between the Old and New Testament (a nearly 400-year period!). Jesus' teaching and work took place in the ancient Greco-Roman Jewish world. Understanding the Gospel in this context is mandatory for those who read the New Testament today. The second volume of The Bible in the Ancient World begins with five lessons on the Intertestamental period, exploring the rise and fall of Alexander the Great, the Maccabees, the Romans, the Herodian Dynasty, and New Testament Judaism. The next ten lessons offer thorough discussion on the main themes in the life and ministry of Christ. Special attention is given to the person and nature of Christ, the Gospel, the kingdom of God, and the Church. Lessons also include discussion of historical and theological issues related to the life of Christ. The final three lessons cover the history of the Church in the New Testament. In The Bible in the Ancient World, Volume 2, students will read most of the New Testament, complete map projects, and be presented with photos from all over the Mediterranean world. The completion of The Bible in the Ancient World will bring your students to a unified understanding of God's redemptive work in historical and geographical context.

    Not your ordinary sticker book, this resource contains a wealth of information about the people, places, and daily lives of those who lived in Bible times. Each page focuses on a topic and contains colorful captioned illustrations and photographs pertaining to the theme. For example, the Jewish Home Life section has photos of family tents (still in use today by Bedouin families), a cutaway illustration of a typical peasants house, illustrations of Jewish families cooking and eating at home, and photos of ancient wine jars. Captions explain the significance of the pictures, and several images on each page appear faintly so you can select the matching sticker to complete the picture. There are over 100 large stickers in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some of the stickers include: illustrations of people from the Bible, portrayals of Noahs Ark and the Nativity, photos of artifacts and animals, and renderings of buildings. As students place the stickers on the pages, they will learn about the Philistines, the Egyptians, the Roman Army, farming and fishing, music, the Jewish religion, people from the Bible, and more. Oversized, 46 pgs (plus stickers). ~ Lisa
