Reviews - What do customers think about Life Places Of The Bible?
No feeling, no quality, no nothing May 26, 2008
These pictures aren't even great pictures. They could be of Ireland, South of Spain... anywhere. And they are foggy, blurry. One can really see that they were taken by a non-religious photographer, thinking only on doing his thing.
On the other hand the lack of captions (as the other reviewer mentioned) is not a little minus: it's a huge minus, because I was trying to find like crazy the reference in the text of the exact location of the pictures taken but they don't even say. This is not lack of tact, this is absolute idiocy.
The texts go over the Bible stories like it was the first time the reader ever read the story. No relation to the pictures at all.
Viewing pleasure OH MY how beautiful May 25, 2007
I have to say this book is a must buy...the pictures are amazing if you appreciate bible places. the writing of the book is accurate to the places in the bible and you really can appreciate this book especially when to visit won't happen anytime soon due to the war torn situation happening to a lot of those location pictured. the only and I mean only suggestion I would give this book is for example: the photographs should of had their own caption to explain where the picture was taken, when was it taken and taken by who photographer if the pictures had more detail of their location it would of been 5+ stars!!!! but have to tell you a must have book to own in your collection ESPECIALLY ON THAT COFFEE TABLE PEOPLE WILL PICK THIS BOOK UP AND LOOK!!!!!!!!!!!
