Vol 11, #2 - August 8, 2012

I'm celebrating 20 years of a very good thing today (Prov 18:22), and it seems like a good opportunity to offer a one-day 20%-off sale on every photo collection we've created. See below for all the details.

Anniversary Discount

Today only you can order the Galilee or Jerusalem volumes for $31 (reg. $39), pick up the Israel Collection for $119 (reg. $149), or save $78 on all 18 volumes of the Pictorial Library of Bible Lands. If you own the previous edition, the discount may be added to the significantly reduced upgrade prices.

This 20% discount also applies to each of the 17 volumes in the Historic Views of the Holy Land Collection as well as the Above Israel DVD set. This offer ends at midnight Eastern time today.

The Revised and Expanded edition, released earlier this summer, is the culmination of 9 years of intensive travel, photography, research, sorting, editing, labeling, and mapmaking. We’ve expanded the collection from 6,000 photos to nearly 18,000 and added thousands of images from dozens of other photographers including Barry Beitzel, Gary Pratico, and David Dorsey. We believe that the new collection is many times better than the previous edition (2003) and we offer a full money-back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied.

Before you order, you can take a look at each volume, see what’s new for upgraders, or check out the free photos and Galilee and Judah PowerPoint presentations. When you’re ready to order, use this link in order to receive the discount. You can use this discount for purchasing gifts, so you might consider whether you want to pick up a collection for your pastor, parent, or friend. Or send them here so that they can save.

Save 20% on all orders on August 8


Another Perspective

Dr. Stephen Austin, Director of the Texas International Bible Institute, writes:

"I finally found time to sit down and look at the first volume (Galilee) of the new Pictorial Library. Wow! How much fun is that?

"I don't know how you keep topping yourself, but I really enjoyed looking through them. You not only had new sites or new developments of older sites, but I particularly love the 'perspective' or 'big picture' shots that help you put it all together, such as the aerial from above the northern end of the Sea of Galilee looking all the way back down the western shore and identifying the sites there. And there were many like that, a slightly different angle, a slightly wider shot, that were great. Also, ones like the focus on the place where the three rivers come together to form the Jordan, were instructive pictures too.

"I will enjoy adding some of these to my university Bible class this fall with 95 students, such as the one of the Orthodox Jew skiing down Mount Hermon! Unexpected! And I also love the maps at the beginning of the power points--I love maps for how they orient and give the big picture.

"Thanks for this great investment in biblical scholarship. In my opinion, it's one of the great resources of any kind in biblical studies today."
