My Recommendations: Book of the Week, March 6

Satellite Bible Atlas: Historical Geography of the Bible provides a very handy guide for any Bible land tour of Israel. Bill Schlegel lives in Israel and has led tours for several decades. The atlas combines modern satellite imagery with a conservative handling of the biblical text. This 8-1/2 x 12 inch volume comes in either hardback or paperback. This recommendation arises out of knowing Bill Schlegel personally, having been on a tour with him as one of the leaders, and having led a tour myself with this atlas as one of the guidebooks we asked all participants to possess and use. You don’t need to take a tour to Israel to appreciate this atlas; you only need to have it available as you read the Bible. Geographical awareness enhances Bible reading and Bible study.
