Bible maps for the serious student!
O.k. O.k. I confess that I did build the "Bible Maps" suspense in the title. But, in all honesty, I don't have a lot of resources for this one.
For the most part, you've seen one set of these type of resources, you've seen them all!
But here are a few that may add a little "variety" to you collection. Hope you enjoy. God bless!

Baker's Bible Atlas
Author - Charles F. Pfeiffer
Publisher - Baker Book House
All I can say is, "Wow!" I really hadn't used this much until recently. It's great. It's actually a combination "manners and customs" and Bible atlas. It has some of the most detailed maps of the Bible I've ever seen. But there is one major drawback...
(No drum rolls please!)
It's a reeeeaaaalllly old book. (It's older than I am kids!) So you may not be able to find this edition. But a scouring of the internet might turn up something. And, who knows, Baker might still print a variation of it.
Author - Simon Jenkins
Publisher - Thomas Nelson
A variation on a theme, this really does have 3-D maps (but you don't get those really cool glasses with it. Sorry.)
It also provides a chronology of events from the lives of important people in the Bible. I have the electronic version of this. I've never seen it in print although it may be out there. I've just never seen it.
Author - Dr. C.I. Scofield
Publisher - Oxford University Press
I've always loved the information-rich maps in this Bible. I don't always aggree with Dr. Scofield. But the maps in his study Bible are great for a quick lookup. A great resource, but certainly not a must-have.
Author - Larry Pierce
This is the same title I have in "Bible Study Software." But I couldn't resist putting it here, too. It has a great free maps module that's worth a look. And don't forget...
The program is free!
