Accordance has many holman titles and i've always been surprised that this isnt one of them

Holman bible atlas by thomas brisco

http://www.bhpublish...n-bible-atlas-2

I spent ages in foyles in london looking at atlases and bought this one and it has been my go to hard back resource for about 15 years. Whenever i have wanted a map, i have found what i'm looking for. I can understand why it got its award.

...

Rick, do you know why the holman bible atlas isnt in your catalogue? I think you should consider it. ;o)
 

 

I can tell you I would like to see the Holman Atlas in Accordance and have recommended it a number of times. I am not directly involved in licensing and don't know why we don't have it yet. I would especially like to see us have the new edition, which to my knowledge, is not available on any other Bible software platform. 

 

I would say that the Holman maps are the best looking maps anywhere and excellent for teaching purposes if you're going to drop them in Keynote or PowerPoint. There are a few of them in the HCSB Study Bible, such as this one on "The Migration of Abraham."

(By the way, I had to scale that map down for it to upload to the forums. The version in Accordance's HCSBSB is even larger).

 

I also believe the Holman maps would be well-received in Accordance because Lifeway uses these maps across all of their various adult curriculums. I doubt any other set of maps gets as much exposure. Although Lifeway does offer a digital teaching pack now with their various study guides, these only contain one map per quarter. It would be nice to have all the maps at once in Accordance.

 

So, I'm with you :-)

It would be also cool if this would be integrated in the Accordance Bible Atlas too.
