Thanks Denise for your fuller explanation. I've had the privilege of going to Israel twice in my life and would love to have taken Carta resources with me. Maybe a third time is an option in the future but there are no plans for that.

I still hold on to hope that Carta resources may some day be a reality in Logos.

Let's hope, Bruce. There really isn't a good, non-evangelical Bible atlas available for Logos.

A new thread just reminded me of another possible reason for Logos delaying Carta resources: image quality. Carta needs it, and Logos doesn't have a great record of delivering it. Shipping these with poor image quality would be pretty disastrous.

Bruce Dunning:

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.

Same book different name….

The Carta Bible Atlas

by Yohanon Aharoni

This fourth edition of the best-selling The Macmillan Bible Atlas brings the latest findings of biblical, historical, and archaeological research to its sweeping cartographic portrayal of biblical history. - settlement and mass migrations of populations
- skirmishes, battles, and conquests described in the Bible
- economic developments, trade routes, and natural resources
- the movements of biblical characters within the Holy Land, its districts and cities
- archaeological excavations in the Holy Land from the Stone Age, the Chalcolithic period, and the Israelite and Second Temple periods
- the journeys of the Apostles and the growth of the Church in the first and second centuries A.D.
In addition, valuable appendices, a detailed comparative chronology of early civilizations, a key to the maps according to the books of the Bible, and a new index to persons make this work the most comprehensive Bible Atlas available.

Yes Dan, this is the book I would really like to see in Logos. Thanks for promoting it.

I had a great email exchange with someone at Carta over the last few days confirming that they are very interested in seeing Carta resources come to Logos. I would love to hear if Logos is interested in pursuing this opportunity.

In addition I heard the following from Carta about this resource -

"In 2011 we issued the 5th Revised  & Expanded Edition of The Carta Bible Atlas.  UBrucepdated by the late Prof Anson F. Rainey himself with Prof R. Steven Notley expanding the N. T. section. It is a thoroughly improved version."

Is anyone else excited about seeing this in Logos?

I would like to see it… I have had the Carta ultimate collection on my Accordance wish list for a long while….just always seems more important… and wish lists are usually for the time you have much extra money...

I have the 5th edition of the Carta Bible Atlas in book form. It's outstanding. I'd love to have it in Logos.

Bump...

It's about time to see if we can drum up some more votes for Carta maps.

Well, I guess the clock's ticking away for me.  

As earlier mentioned, I got Another Bible Software's Carta Bible Atlas, Sacred Bridge and non-Carta Photoguide (the best of the 3). The Atlas, that's been re-badged, is not that impressive per se, but does include some maps that otherwise are buried elsewhere in our Logos libraries. Menerptah's vacation in Palestine comes to mind.

Now my new Carta friend is 'the Quest'.  I wasn't too enthused with more maps of theoretical Jerusalem history (emphasis on theoretical).  But the Quest is much more detail mainly beginning 'in the days of King Herod' and archaeologically moving backward.

I'm still holding out for Logos although I am tempted to consider other options if there is no chance of getting it in Logos.

Thanks for keeping my thread alive Bruce. 3+ years now, and still waiting.

Add them both please.  There's always room for more of this sort of material.  It can be easy to overlook the significance of geography when reading the scriptures.

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

Can anyone compare the Carta with the Macmillan?

I was tired of waiting on Logos and bought it last year during a sale at a competitor that used to be Mac only.

A year later, I am glad I did it then.

Here is a recent blog about the best Bible atlas ever -

http://abramkj.com/2014/06/11/the-best-bible-atlas-ever/

Oh how I continue to wish it would be available in Logos.

Perhaps this will motivate a few more to cast your vote for this with Logos - https://prepub.uservoice.com/forums/183407-general/suggestions/3718024-add-books-from-carta
