Excellent information

Review: I teach History, so I like finding things that show how things were vs how they are. This is very useful because I have a way to show the book to the whole class with technology. It really helps students understand both today and ancient times.

Very helpful

Review: It is always so nice to be able to see what 'was' and compare it to what 'is.' I teach History, so this is very valuable, for both ancient and modern History. I have a document camera, so I can use it to project for the whole class, and everyone has really gotten a better idea of, not only what happened where in Christ's time, but also about how the maps look through History. I am grateful to those who put this together, and to The Catholic Company for having it.

The Great Adventure-Then and Now Bible..

Review: I love this product! I had just been wishing there was a map out there that would show me where all of the areas mentioned in the bible with biblical names of cities and countries were located and to have a reference that would show me the same places with their present day names of cities and countries. Many names of cities and country names and boundaries have changed. This product is it! It covers everything that happened in the Old Testament through the New Testament. With the film overlays, one can easily follow along with what is happening in the bible and where those locations would be occuring in present day areas. Thank you so much for coming up with this book! I recommend it for everyone! There should be one in each household and in libraries everywhere.
