Video: An Introduction to Biblical Jerusalem

Greetings!

I am pleased to announce that Zondervan has released a 13 lesson video Encountering the Holy Land: A Video Introduction to the History and Geography of the Bible.

We filmed this series on-site in the Holy Land, and Zondervan has richly enhanced the series with video footage from Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Turkey, Greece, and Italy!

You are invited to view our Introduction to Biblical Jerusalem (6 min 34 sec).

It is an on-location visual overview of the lands of the Bible designed for students, Bible study groups, adult learners, travelers to the lands of the Bible, pastors, teachers, and all lovers of the Bible.  I hope that viewers will develop a deeper appreciation for the Bible by understanding the lands and cultures in which it was written.

The first lesson introduces the “playing board” of biblical history, followed by lessons arranged historically that begin with Eden and trace the historical progression of the Old and New Testaments. The video study provides an engaging, accurate, and faithful companion to God’s Word–illuminating the text with footage filmed in the Holy Land and Egypt. This set of lessons provides an in-depth visual overview that will help viewers experience the geography and history of Scripture with unprecedented immediacy and clarity.

Throughout Encountering the Holy Land, I lead viewers through the Holy Lands to illuminate the geographical and historical context of biblical events. I hope it will become your favorite guide to biblical geography and the history of the Bible.

It is available in multiple formats including DVDs and Streaming.

Free Zondervan Atlas of the Bible Images

Greetings.  In June of 2010 Zondervan published a new, completely revised edition of my (now titled) Zondervan Atlas of the Bible.  To assist those who are using the atlas in a variety of classes, I have posted all the images that are included in the atlas.

Enjoy!

Zondervan Atlas in Electronic Formats

I recently purchased the Kindle version of my Zondervan Atlas of the Bible.  I have a number of Kindle books on my iPad Mini and I wondered how the Atlas would look and work in the Kindle version.  When it first came out in Kindle format it actually cost more than the hard copy—over $25.00.  So I waited.  Well, when the price hit $9.99 I hit the “One click Buy Now” button!

I am pleased to say that it looks and works very well.  Because of all of the graphics—maps, charts, and pictures—the hard copy formating of the book is lost, but all of the above items are there!  And they are clear and very pleasing to use.  If you decide to purchase a copy, please be sure to read the “How to Use this Textbook” for it will provide very helpful clues on how to navigate through the book.  In addition, the book, and the extensive “Geographical Dictionary and Index” are hyperlinked and work very well.

Also note that OliveTree Bible Software is now offering an electronic version of the Zondervan Atlas of the Bible in electronic format for the following platforms:  Android, BlackBerry (with card), iPad, iPhone, and Symbian Series 60 v5.  It is also available from Accordance.
