Carta's focus on the Bible and Israel led to concise editions covering the three monotheistic religions – historical atlases, Haggadahs with commentaries by world renowned authors for the Jewish community, and guides to the holy sites for Christians of all denominations. Such guides to the Holy Land were written for pilgrims and visitors and are valuable also for the armchair traveler and those who for whatever reason cannot make the pilgrimage.
