    Is Logos going to offer the newest Baker's Bible Atlas by Charles F. Pfieffer? I need it for a class that I am teaching at a School of Preaching and Biblical Studies.

    This is a great resource for me. I'm a very visual person and it helps me to know how Biblical places relate to each other on a map with a description of the political issues and notes on archeological evidence that supports the Biblical record. One more note: I find viewing the graphics in Logos hard, which is more of a comment on the Logos system than the Atlas. But you can save the image to your computer and open it in another program if you need to see the details better. I hope Logos finds a way to display graphics better.
