  • Will a description of the changes in the updated Satellite Bible Atlas be forthcoming either in the blog or on the website?

  • Dudley,
    Thanks for asking…
    The changes in the 2nd edition are not huge, but there are some.
    1. Typos, general editing. I’d guess there were over 50 spelling/typo changes in both the text commentary and on maps.
    2. Text commentary. The text went through another round of editing. I tried to add a few more theologically significant or devotional ideas, e.g., the importance of the Davidic Covenant on Map 5-6. Sometimes these additions are just a sentence or two.
    3. Maps – besides typo editing and a few other smaller changes (additional site names), some color was added to maps that I thought would help communicate the history/geography better. Like different colors for the divided kingdom, Map 6-1. There is one additional inset map on 5-6 showing the extent of the Solomonic Kingdom.
    4. Pictures – some aerial pictures taken more recently with a drone have been added.

    Again, the changes aren’t huge, and don’t warrant “getting another one”. The book looks the same, the page and map numbers are all the same…

    As mentioned in the blog post, all the new maps and over 70 aerial pictures (some used in the new printed edition) are available for jpg download for owners of the atlas: http://www.bibleplaces.com/sba-resources/

    Blessings,
    Bill
