Vincent Chia:

As far as I can see that link goes to the same product as linked in DAL’s original post. Do you see something different?

Question:  How is this atlas different than the Holman Atlases?

https://www.logos.com/product/7301/holman-bible-atlas-a-complete-guide-to-the-expansive-geography-of-biblical-history

https://www.logos.com/product/7298/holman-book-of-biblical-charts-maps-and-reconstructions

EDIT:  The reason for my question is that this atlas does not appear in Carta's catalog and is from an author different than the Bible atlases that Carta publishes.  As far as I can tell, here is the most recent Carta atlas (it seems much larger in content) and it was published in 2011.  I'm confused on what we would be getting in such an abbreviated resource given that the two Holman resources I mentioned have 297 pp. and 176 pp. respectively.

Carta apparently publishes sixteen different resources with Atlas in their title. The pre-order you’re asking about really is one of their atlases.

http://store.carta-jerusalem.com/archaeological-excavations/65-cartas-historical-atlas-of-jerusalem.html

I can’t specifically address how it compares to the Holman resources you mentioned, but merely reflecting on page count, Carta’s is 92 pages devoted to Jerusalem, while the ones you mention are 176 or 297 pages about the biblical world in general?

Thanks to FL for including Carta and a Hebrew audio bible in Logos 9!

Ahhh ... That link was a help.  I was looking at the paper catalog (PDF) on their website and not the on-line store.  Thanks.

Yes, biblical world in general to include Jerusalem. (I think the table of contents for those resources is viewable in the Logos/Verbum catalog.)

The competition has them way more expensive for some reason, so you might want to preorder NOW in case there was a mistake on the price and it gets corrected any split second from now.  I have the same Carta Jerusalem in the competition and it looks the same, but again, the competition is more expensive.  Same goes for the one on Jerusalem in the times of Nehemiah, which I also own.  The competition has it more expensive than Logos’s prepub and regular price.  Just an observation in case the prices change.

Yes, I had noticed that the Logos regular price is even less than Amazon!

I have those Holman atlases and can tell you they are very, very good.

I also ordered the Carta Atlases and am hoping hoping hoping the graphics will be good.

Yes, I have them also and they are good.  The Holman Bible Atlas has a couple of renditions of the map you see in the second sample page from the Carta resource in the catalog.  It makes me wonder how much overlap there is.

For those that don't have the Holman Atlas here is those examples:

     

I'm not trying to discourage anyone from getting the Carta resource.  It seems that I won't be able to know the content differences at this point in time.

I hope that this is just the beginning of the offerings, and that Faithlife will begin to carry ALL the Carta resources (and offer them in a package). I'm especially hopeful to have the volumes by two brilliant scholars that are friends of mine, R. Steve Notley and Jeffrey Garcia. Great men of God with brilliant minds who have been instrumental in the El Araj / Bethsaida excavation around the Galilee.

I hope they keep coming.

Ideally it would be great if they were released in a package so one could just get them all at once. I guess that might be the case later.

I'm curious why these are all of Resource Type: Monograph instead of Atlas?
