Friday Review . . . Google Maps meets the Holy Land

Ok, so it is actually called The point is that someone has taken the maps available from Google Maps (and other places) and linked them to Biblical texts to create a free, on-line, unique Biblical atlas.

It took me a minute to figure out. Maybe it was late -- and maybe I am just a little slow; but just in case, I will explain how it works. The main page makes it obvious that you are supposed to select a Book and chapter. Then, it displays the text of that chapter over the satellite image -- except the image doesn't change. You have to scroll down through the text until you find a highlighted place name. Click on that place name and the image changes.

There are also three events you can view. They are the three missionary journeys of Paul. All in all, it is a cool site.

Check it out.
