The Geobasics Study Guide is a 201-page, 8.5x11 inch downloadable textbook that leads the user through the book, Geobasics in the Land of the Bible region by region. For each region the Geobasics Study Guide provides marking exercises on the relevant maps and follows this hands-on task with short geobasic statements that are readily observable from the user's work with the maps. It then expands these statements by means of a full discussion and concludes each region with a list of texts, Biblical and historical, that describe the essence of the region.

It provides map-marking instructions for developments in the early spread of the Gospel across the eastern Mediterranean. The New Testament text is enlivened by frequent reference not only to geographical realities but to ancient sources and the culture of the first century.
