A Comparison of
in Their Sandals Bible Atlas 2.0
with two other popular Bible Atlas CDs
on the market today:
Bible Atlas from Logos Research -and- Bible Maps from
Manna (their latest advertised versions)
Comparison by Neil MacQueen,
Sunday School Software, October 2002
Sunday Software can distribute ANY Bible Atlas on the market
today. We have chosen to distribute Walking in Their Sandals
because we believe it goes beyond delivering map graphics and
location text --Walking in Their Sandals
2.0 cares about the experience of the
user. Compared to Sandals, these other two are either
for serious students/teachers who need every conceivable Bible
map --or they'll put you to sleep. If you are looking for a map
that takes you or your students on a learning journey, Sandals
Atlas is it. If you're looking for a map CD to create your own
handouts, or for Power Point presentations, the other two will
do. <>< Neil MacQueen, Sunday Software
Logos Bible Atlas
Pros: Deep notes. Large number of maps. Exportable
printable maps. Create your own map feature. Includes one 3D
topographical map of Israel.
Cons: Artistically unappealing maps, boring database feel,
almost no educational multimedia features. Old.
Bible Maps Plus from Manna Inc.
Pros: Large number of maps. Some very modest animation
features, editable notes feature. Printable maps.
Cons: Unappealing maps, less than artistic graphics and
interface. Scripture is KJV. Notes aren't always interesting.
$89 price tag!
Walking in Their
Sandals Bible Atlas Version 2.0
(Due to the size of this graphic, I've cropped
it a bit and lower its resolution for faster web loading)
look at Sandals Atlas' engaging, clean and modern interface tells
you this is a CD people will WANT to use.
The entire program is graphically appealing. It's a joy to navigate.
Very well written articles (i.e. "interesting")
for lay and scholars. Lots of interesting photos that look professionally
shot, not old looking low quality photos like some of these other
atlas CDs seem to have tolerate. NUMEROUS EXCELLENT VIDEOS
with an onscreen New Testament Professor speaking at many
locations. 360 degree Photobubbles of many spots. Animated "lesson"
tracks with some maps. Excellent maps on the ministry of Jesus.

Due to the multimedia intensity of Sandals Atlas CD, the program
doesn't include maps for stories beyond Israel, such as the New
Testament church or Babylon. All the text and maps are printable.
