The Revised and Expanded Edition of the Pictorial
Library of Bible Lands is a major improvement over the previous
(2003) edition. The new edition includes more than 13,000 new photos
(the previous edition included 6,000 total!) and took nearly a
decade to create (all previous editions combined took less than 4 years).
We think you'll love it for many reasons:
New volumes: Eight new volumes cover new
Eastern and Central
Turkey, The Greek
Islands, and more) as well as new subjects (Cultural
Trees, Plants, and Flowers). Our goal for the Pictorial
Library has always been to be as comprehensive as possible and we
are much closer to achieving that now!
New photos: Every volume has new
photos, and some volumes have so many new photos that you'll hardly
recognize them. For instance, we added more than 1,000 new images to
Jerusalem, more than 1,000
images to Judah and
the Dead Sea, and nearly 900 to
Samaria and the Center.
Of course, we have kept the best photos from the previous editions.
Great photos: The
Pictorial Library includes all of the photos that we have used to
illustrate the BiblePlaces Blog for the last seven years, all of the
photos in the BiblePlaces.com website, and all of the photos featured in
ten years of BiblePlaces Newsletters. It also includes thousands of photographs
that have been selected for publication in hundreds of resources,
including the Archaeological Study Bible, the ESV Bible
Atlas, and National Geographic's The Letters and the Scroll.
With purchase of the Pictorial Library, you have all of these
photos right at your fingertips.
New photographers: The new collection
features images from more than 40 photographers, including Todd Bolen,
A.D. Riddle, Gloria Suess, Barry Beitzel, Daniel Frese, Craig Dunning,
Kim Guess, Enery Hsu, Matt Floreen, William Krewson, Gary Pratico, and
New identifying labels: You can add your own in
created many of them for you already, especially on aerial and panoramic
photographs. You can keep, edit, or delete ours. We
predict you will see many things that you would have otherwise missed!
New PowerPoint annotations: All of the new sites
and subjects (thousands of them) have
explanatory notes and Scripture
verses to help
you understand what you are looking at. If you took these
annotations alone, the content would add up to more than 2,000 pages of
New maps: All new
original maps have been
created so that you can easily identify the location of nearly every site in the Pictorial Library.
New indexes: The
Image Index lists every
photograph for quick and easy searching. The Site Index provides the
primary name for each site as well as alternate names and spellings so
that you can quickly find the location of any site you are searching
Great value: The upgrade price of $179 gives
you the best of the previous editions plus more than double the number of
new photos. The upgrade version is exactly the same
as the full version ($389) except for the price.
Really GREAT value: With 18 volumes for $179,
the cost of a single volume (both the new and the significantly revised ones)
comes out to about $10 each. For the new photos alone (13,663), you're paying
about 1.3 cents per picture (not counting all of the previous photos, plus the new
labels, maps, annotations, etc.!).
Did we mention GREAT value?: Whether you
purchased the collection 9 years or 9 weeks ago, the upgrade price gives
you full credit for your previous purchase, no matter where or
when you bought it.
Free shipping in the US: We treat you like we
want to be treated. No hidden charges that you discover when you go
to check out, no surprises when you open the package (well, only good
ones!), and no hassles if you want to return or exchange the collection,
even years later!
Generous usage allowances: These are the
as always, giving you tremendous freedom in using the images for
countless personal and educational purposes.
