Hmm -- maps aren't something we've thought of, to tell you the truth, although it
should be possible to do. It's slanted more towards explaining the original
meanings of words and also has a bit of an apologetics slant to it (for instance,
we show how the original Greek supports vicarious baptism in 2 Cor 15:29 and
Godhood (instead of trinity) in John 1:1 -- that sort of thing. It has a few
appendices already. One I can think of offhand is a summary of Jacobean English (it
grates when I hear someone say "come thou all to the ward bar-b-que")
