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
new for upgraders, or check out the

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.

Dr. Stephen Austin, Director of
the Texas International Bible
"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."
