Reviews

"The Satellite Bible Atlas is characterized first and foremost by beautiful satellite imagery and detailed historical markings. No other atlas features so many large maps with nearly every biblical event in Israel depicted with precise detail. Each map is accompanied by commentary that draws out the geographical significance of the history to bring the story alive to the reader. As one who has taught college and seminary students in Israel for 25 years, Bill Schlegel understands and communicates God's revelation to his people in his land in a way like few others. The Satellite Bible Atlas deserves to be the Israel field guide for the next generation of students, young and old. The atlas is also ideal for students in introductory Bible classes."
Todd Bolen, author of the Pictorial Library of Bible Lands, Associate Professor of Biblical Studies, The Master's College

"This is a must-have. Our students use this atlas in our Israel travel/study program. The precision of satellite photography overlaid with clearly demarcated boundary lines and biblical historical graphics -- the whole topped off by text commentary -- has resulted in this beautiful and useful historical atlas of Bible lands."
Eugene H. Merrill, Distinguished Professor of Old Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary

"A delightful and dependable compendium of historical facts and insights. The work is thoroughly researched, punctuated throughout by helpful synchronisms with extra-biblical records, meaningfully interactive with competing opinions, and thoughtfully committed to the factual inerrancy of the Scriptural record. The map markings are remarkably helpful, and the fact that those markings are not superimposed upon a drawn map but upon cartographically-enhanced satellite photographs of the terrain adds a healthy level of reality to the work. Very much worth a focused read-through, and then perpetually valuable as a study resource no matter where the student is in the Scriptures."
Doug Bookman, Professor of New Testament, Shepherds Theological Seminary

"I own sixteen separate Bible Atlases, and I can say unequivocally Bill Schlegel's Satellite Bible Atlas is the one I recommend. It is a gateway to some absolutely dynamic Bible study; it is theologically sound and Biblically conservative. I pray that God will use this book in your life as he has in mine."
Richard Rigsby, Professor Emeritus of Old Testament and Former Director of Talbot Bible Lands Program, Talbot School of Theology
