For years I have enjoyed using the Pictorial Library of Bible Lands for personal study, as well as for most photos of Bible lands on my blog. Only recently have I seen a collection that takes the magnificent photos from this collection to the next level. 

The same producers have just released the Photo Companion to the Bible, with the Gospels as their first collection. After looking through it at key places in the gospels where I had questions about a location, I found those questions answered, explained, and illustrated in such detail! 

Just watch the video above to see what I mean. 

The Photo Companion to the Bible provides digital photographs through PowerPoint presentations (I view them in Keynote) that illustrate the Gospels verse by verse. In fact, every chapter is illustrated with between 40–230 photographs.

Here are a few of the features: 

  • Completely a digital download for instant access (with option to get the DVD too)
  • New aerial photographs of Galilee and Jerusalem 
  • Detailed markings of routes that Jesus traveled 
  • Annotations explaining image selection and background 
  • Free lifetime updates
  • Generous copyright permissions 
  • Satisfaction guaranteed

As a Bible teacher, this collection has instantly become an indispensable resource to me. I wouldn’t consider teaching the Gospels without first referring to this collection.

I’m impressed, to say the least, so much so that I urge you get this resource. With the money-back guarantee, you take no risk.

(By the way, I wasn’t asked to write a review, nor do I make anything off your purchase. I simply believe in this product enough to recommend it to you.) 

The low introductory price lasts only through tomorrow (August 21). So take advantage of the offer

30 Days in the Land of the Psalms

30 Days in the Land of the Psalms (Moody Publishers, 2017)

Many Christians read the Psalms every day but miss the fullness of their message. Why? The psalmists were poets, weaving images from the lands around them into the lines of Holy Scripture. Without a picture of what the Judean Wilderness looks like, or Masada, or the Mount of Olives, we read the words but miss so much of the message.

Dr. Charlie Dyer is one of the most gifted expositors of the Holy Land I’ve ever read. As you read 30 Days in the Land of the Psalms, you will picture the places of the poets.

This book will help you do more than merely read the Psalms.

You’ll see them.

In the end, that Face which is the delight or the terror of the universe must be turned upon each of us with one expression or with the other, either conferring glory inexpressible or inflicting shame that can never be cured or disguised.
