Bruce Dunning:

I've never used the Carta Atlas but your post reminded me of my favorite atlas that I have ever used.

 

Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE HE

I just wrote a suggestion to Logos. – The Macmillan Bible Atlas but Yohanon Aharoni and Michael Avi-Yonah. What I love about this atlas is that it has specific maps for most of the major Bible events that would benefit from maps.

 http://www.amazon.ca/Macmillan-Bible-Atlas-Yohanan-Aharoni/dp/0025006053

 This by far is the best Bible Atlas that I have owned and would love to see it in Logos.

Can anyone compare the Carta with the Macmillan?

This is too funny. I did some more research and I think that it is the same book - just with a revised title.

It looks like The Macmillan Bible Atlas is an older version of The Carta Bible Atlas - 5th Revised and Updated Edition.

That's the same thing that I discovered above. I have the fourth edition (1977) that I purchased when I was in Bible College. This is an amazing resource!

I originally contacted suggest@logos.com to suggest the Macmillian Bible Atlas and then recontacted them after I found out that it was the same resource.

Your posts were a bit unclear. You never said what Carta atlas you were comparing with, and your reply was to my post that mentioned the Jerusalem atlas, not the Bible one.

Sorry for the confusion.

Fr Devin Roza:

Please add everything Carta publishes to Logos! Need I remind you that a different certain Bible program has already done so? Huh?

Here is an example of a fantastic resource from Carta not yet mentioned:

Thank you for your kind words. We at Carta are grateful.

The Macmillan Bible Atlas is the English version of the original Hebrew The Carta Bible Atlas (1964). In 2000 rights to The Macmillan Bible Atlas reverted to Carta Jerusalem, and is now available in it's 5th, thoroughly revised and updated edition (2011). As to the "best" Bible Atlas, in 2006 Carta published The Sacred Bridge: Carta's Atlas of the Biblical World, another unsurpassed title. For details please visit http://carta-jerusalem.com/

Please note that the Carta line has been enriched by 2 atlases, equal and in parts superior to The Carta (formerly Macmillan) Bible Atlas. See The Sacred Bridge: Carta's Atlas of the Biblical World and Carta's New Century Handbook and Atlas of the Bible

So...what are the chances of actually getting these in Logos?

For those of you who haven't yet found out, there is now a Carta suggestion at Logos' new Uservoice site for prepubs: Add books from Carta. Please go add your vote[s ]. And then add the remainder of your votes to other suggestions -- preferably mine.Big Smile

(There is also a new Uservoice site for CP's, with another ten new votes for you to spend: http://communitypricing.uservoice.com/forums/183260-general/filters/top.)

Thanks for encouraging this. Unfortunately I can't do any more as I've already registered 3 votes. I encourage others to do the same. In my limited opinion the Carta Atlas is the best I've ever used.

Amazing. Since I made that post above, the Carta suggestion has gone from 6 or 10 votes to 35, and is now leading the race.
