Several times, including here, I have called attention to David Barrett’s Bible Mapper program. Version 3 remains a free program, but Barrett has now published version 4. The cost is $37. The web site describes Bible Mapper in these words,
Bible Mapper is a fully interactive, highly accurate Bible mapping system that helps you quickly and easily create customized maps of the Holy Lands or study a particular period and aspect of Bible history.
Based on my limited use of Version 3 I will say that the learning curve is fairly high, but the result can be gratifying. I have made several maps to teach specific portions of scripture, or the movement of certain characters.
There are many new features in version 4, including a gallery of 35 ready made maps. Take a look at the gallery when you check the web page. Complete information is available here. The map below is a reduced one from the gallery. The sample maps in the gallery are full size, but they all have the word SAMPLE on them — until you buy the registration key and unlock them on your computer. The 35 maps, even without the program, is worth the $37 it will cost you.
The maps in the ESV Study Bible were made with Bible Mapper.
