Vol 16, #2 - August 21, 2017
Iím not one to weary my readers with promotions, but we worked on
this project long enough that perhaps I can be permitted a second
note in a week. My timing is related to
the end of the introductory pricing today.
You can read (and see) all about the
Photo Companion to the Gospels, so Iíll skip the bare
facts for a personal word. Iíve been creating photo collections
since January 2000 (the first release of the Pictorial Library
of Bible Lands, then 4 volumes). Since then Iíve produced 35
volumes which are currently available (plus a few others that have
been retired). The Photo Companion to the Bible is the
best. Itís not yet complete (we have finished only the Gospels),
but for what it covers, I believe there is nothing better.
Why do I think it is so good?
#1 Ė The Photo Companion draws from the best of
the previous volumes and adds many outstanding new photos
in an easy-to-use format.
#2 Ė We have done the hard work for you.
You donít have to look through 35 volumes to find the images that
elucidate and illuminate a particular verse. You donít have to page
through random websites to find images that may or may not be what they claim
to be. Everything is right there at your fingertips. I think
you'll make up the cost in time savings very quickly.
#3 - Even if you have
loads of extra time, you simply cannot find so
many of the unique elements
that we have created for this collection. By this I mean the drone images, the coin images,
the scroll images, and many of the cultural scenes.
#4 Ė Our team is outstanding. For the previous
collections, I was the primary producer. For this one, a team of
three of us have done the heavy lifting, with help from a number of
other awesome people. The results, I believe, are obvious. I could
never have created this by myself, but with Steven Anderson and A.D.
Riddle, I think we have produced a winner.
#5 Ė Our approach favors the user. We donít put
obnoxious watermarks on the photos. We donít lock them up in a
program so you canít alter them. Everything is wide open. You can
edit and customize to your heartís content. Yes, we risk people
abusing our generosity. But weíre not interested in hurting the many
on account of the few. Bottom line: we treat others the way we want
to be treated.
If you think that you or someone you know could use a photo
resource for the Gospels, now is the time to buy. Weíll still have a
fair price tomorrow, but we have the best price today.
Because we offer a no-questions-asked 100% money-back guarantee,
you can't lose.
If you are one of those who has already purchased the Gospels
volumes (and youíre still reading), and if you have found it a
valuable resource, would you consider helping us to spread
the word? We have no marketing budget. We have no marketing
person. All of us here are Bible nerds working away to create the
next volumes. We would be grateful if in your genuine enthusiasm,
you would tell someone. Here are a few ways you might do that:
- Email your pastor
- Tell your old college professor
- Post a note on Facebook
- Send a tweet
- Alert your local Christian school
- Ask the church librarian to consider it
- Write a blog post
- Call a friend
This is the link to share:
I see two primary reasons to spread the word. The first is that more
people will benefit from these photos. The second is that we get the
funding we need to keep going. (With the Gospels, we have finished
89 chapters of the Bible; only 1100 left to go!)
Thank you for considering it. And a big thanks to those of you
who have already done it. We greatly appreciate it.
I close with two quotations from reviews posted
in the last week.
"As a Bible teacher, this collection has instantly become an
indispensable resource to me. I wouldnít consider teaching the
Gospels without first referring to this collection." ĖWayne
"Whether youíre a teacher, pastor, or someone seeking to
better understand the Gospels, this is the best visual resource
out there." ĖBrad
Thank you for your support.
