There is already this lengthy thread devoted to Carta.

Please allow me to begin this one devoted just to The Sacred Bridge--I have just completed what was a multi-month project for me: a nearly 3,500-word review of that atlas, calling it the best Bible atlas ever. The review includes maps and a whole sample page for those interested.

I highly recommend the atlas in print. You all know it's available in another Bible software. And Logos should seriously consider pursuing it, even with their new Maps they have in Logos 6.

Here is the review.

YesYesYes Thanks for the review! 

Faithlife should publish all of Carta's works, and especially TSB.

I have the first edition. Do you know if there are many changes from the 1st to the 2nd edition?

BTW, I noticed they cited your review on the official Carta store webpage: http://store.carta-jerusalem.com/50-the-sacred-bridge-9789652208491.html

Hi, Fr. Devin,

That was kind of Carta to do that--that's actually my "look inside" post from a few months ago. Perhaps they'll update it with the full review.

Todd Bolen's blog has a short list of updates in the new edition.

Great review Abram! Now I want to see it in Logos more than ever. I have been trying to push this resource in Logos for a long time now so I hope your renewed efforts pay off.

Thanks, Bruce! I gave it three buzzer votes this morning, too, on The Voice, Logos edition. :)

Thanks. Looks like there isn't too much new, so I'll wait until hopefully we can get it in Verbum....

Refreshing the thread.

I'd hate to get this title on some other digital format, or drag around a physical copy.

I'd love to get this in Logos!

If it hasn’t happened after all these years, it ain’t gonna happen now. That’s why I got it from Accordance, which seems to be the exclusive carrier of CARTA products. 👍😁👌 Better graphics in Accordance hands down!

Key word, “No promises” which amounts to only a possibility that as the years went by, it made me realize that Accordance had the answer all along and not Logos. 👍😁👌 the power of exclusivity!

So let's continue to give Faithlife more time until we reach our final conclusions.

Read this short blog post: https://www.accordancebible.com/Only-In-Accordance

Nice way of looking at it! Cultivating relationships is a key. That way we can get old publishers back (AMG) and get new ones (CARTA). It’ll take a lot of work, but it can be done ✅
