Okay, who is Carl Rasmussen?
I am Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota. I received my PhD in Ancient Near Eastern Studies from Dropsie University. I have spent 16 years of my adult life living in, and guiding, academic groups in Israel, Jordan, Greece, and Turkey (including living, teaching, and guiding in Jerusalem for 7 years).
I am an adjunct professor at the Jerusalem University College in Jerusalem and Bethel University in St. Paul, MN and serve as a consultant for a publisher and several media organizations.
In June, 2010, Zondervan published a new, updated version of my Zondervan Atlas of the Bible. Lavishly illustrated, the new version has been updated in every way including new maps, pictures, graphics and updated text.
I maintain the web site www.HolyLandPhotos.org that features over 4,100 free, high quality and high-resolution images of Israel, Turkey, Greece, Jordan, and Italy. Each year I lead adult “study tours” to Turkey, Greece, and Israel and teach in Israel, Turkey, and Greece. I have spent 16 years of my adult life teaching in Israel, Turkey, Greece, and Jordan.
