Hey folks...

I was reading a bit about Besor in ZIBBCOT tonight and came across the bibliography entry seen below called Roads and Highways by Dorsey. I couldn't find this title in Logos and don't know if it IS in Logos. 

Are there any similar type books in Logos?

Here is the book's entry on Amazon:

I don't think there's anything like it in Logos.  It seems to be a unique kind of book.

Thanks, Todd. Being there isn't anything like it in Logos, does anyone have any ideas how to use Logos to garner the same type of information? Or is this strictly a dead tree endeavor?

The larger Bible Encyclopedias have entries for Roads and Highways, but they might not be detailed enough for you.  The AYBD entry has an extensive bibliography, but, after scanning over it, I'm not seeing any that might be in Logos:

Maybe Texas Highways, which shows more mileage.

 

Tom ... before you head in the direction of hard copy, Try googling 'Bible Mapper' which is nice mapping software (a free version plus an upscaled paid one).

In addition to drawing the high-detail maps by selectable period, it also draws the roads by period. So for example, if you're familiar with Petra, the east-west road 'cut' from the approx location of Teman shows up in the Alexandrian period; before that, you went due south to Elath.

 Just a suggestion. Very good addition alongside Logos.
