TTD: Gary, how well does the NIV atlas cover ancient Egypt, particulary
lower Egypt's distance to Cush/Ethiopia? Does it discuss in any detail the
latest findings of archeology in relation to the biblical narratives? Does
it mention other ancient historians such as Manetho, the Egyptian and
Besorus, the Chaldaean?
