 Simply fantastic 

“Most teachers realize that effective images on screen are essential to winning a modern audience and explaining ancient cultural ideas and places. Random searches on the web often lead us astray or suggest images that are simply not accurate. Here the BiblePlaces team has organized image suggestions (with interpretations) by chapter and verse in the Bible. And the result is simply fantastic. We can now locate the right image for our text and read brief expert explanations of what the image means. Like magic, the Photo Companion to the Bible has upgraded each of our efforts to provide accurate contextual explanations of the Bible. There is no tool available today that serves this purpose so effectively.”

Gary M. Burge, Professor of New Testament, Calvin Theological Seminary; author of The Letters of John in the NIV Application Commentary


 Without parallel 

“This remarkable collection of images is really without parallel.  First, there are images that are at times so striking that they give a whole new understanding of a concept even for those very familiar with the letters. Second, at other times there are a series of images accompanying a verse. It is then easy to choose one that particularly strikes the viewer as appropriate. (There are over six hundred photos—more than the number of verses in the letters!) Moreover, the quality of the images is ‘as good as it gets.’”

Urban C. von Wahlde, Professor of New Testament, Loyola University of Chicago; author of The Gospel and Letters of John in the Eerdmans Critical Commentary
