Reviews - What do customers think about Pictorial Library of Bible Lands: Jerusalem (Pictorial Library of the Bible Lands)?
Over 650 fantastic images of Jerusalem Mar 5, 2006
Anyone who has ever searched for images of the splendors of Biblical lands only to come up with grainy images with little in the way of provenance will deeply appreciate Todd Bolen's impressive job of assembling so many excellent pictures in one place - and granting purchasers the right to use any or all of them freely for personal or educational use. Not only does this CD feature hundreds of high-resolution (1600 x 1200 pixels or higher) photographs from out-of-the-way locations as well as familiar sites (Todd Bolen, a professor at the Israel Bible Extension campus of The Master's College, and his colleagues have lived and traveled extensively over the whole area for years), it provides the purchaser with several ways of viewing and using them. You get all of the images in JPEG format, so they can be viewed in a browser, in any number of photo editing software products, or in VueSlide (a trial version of which is included on the CD). On top of that, though, the CD also features ready-made PowerPoint presentations featuring the images in a local tour-like sequence and, in many cases, built-in notes about each image. Identifying information is coded into the name of each file: the site name, the date the photo was taken, and the initials of the photographer. Even those who have toured the Holy Land could not have traveled to so many sites on multiple occasions in order to view each of them under optimal conditions.
Volume 3, Jerusalem, features over 650 photographs from the area of the Old City, Southern Temple Mount excavations, the Temple Mount, City of David, Western wall tunnels, the Jewish Quarter, Mt.Zion, and the Mount of Olives. Specific sites include the Gates of the Old City, the Broad Wall, Area G, Warren's Shaft, Hezekiah's Tunnel, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Bethany and Yad VaShem, as well other assorted images including important tombs, new discoveries in the City of David, and a topographical map of Jerusalem. The subjects include geographical shots (including many aerial shots), photographs of ancient remains and significant modern-day sites, many of them photographed from multiple angles to capture them in their totality, and items of cultural significance.
This is a veritable treasure trove for church leaders and educators, as personal users are given the rights to use these images in class presentations, lectures, course syllabi, newsletters, and church materials.
