BOOK REVIEW: Alas an Atlas that Outlasts: Essential Atlas of the Bible by Carl Rasmussen

Rasmussen's Atlas is unlike other atlas' filled with maps of places you may or may not understand. Rasmussen has created a Bible atlas that is beautiful, easy-to-read, full of full-color images and uses current mapping technology to create a resource tool for pastors and individuals for personal and congregational Bible study.  

I love this. Honestly, I never thought I would say that about an atlas. This particular one, Essential Atlas of the Bible, provides not only the map, but charts, Biblical references, provides the context of what was going on in the world surrounding the names and places of people you encounter as you read God's Word. 

While most people would not consider sitting down to read an Atlas, with Rasmussen's Essential Atlas you could do just that and enjoy every minute of it. This atlas will prove to be an invaluable resource for me as a minister, but also for me personally as I seek to understand God's Word more fully.
