A treasure trove of photos from the Bible Lands 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.

Beautiful photographs for teaching and study Mar 18, 2004
This is an outstanding product at a fabulous price! There are 10 CDs in the collection and they can be purchased individually or as a set. Five of the discs in the collection cover regions in Israel (Galilee & the north, Samaria & the center, Jerusalem, Jordan & the Dead Sea, Negev & the wilderness), and the other five discs cover sites in surrounding countries (Jordan, Greece, Rome, Egypt, Turkey). Each disc contains hundreds of professional-quality, digital photographs, all high-resolution (typically 1600 x 1200 pixels). In addition to the images themselves, each disc comes with pre-prepared PowerPoint slideshows which feature Notes containing a wealth of geographical, archaeological, historical and biblical information relating to the images. As for the images, the color and detail is spectacular. The selection of images includes eye-level views, aerial shots, and panoramas. Because they include all the well-known sites and many lesser known sites, these CDs will be especially valuable to teachers and self-taught students like me. The creator also has a website (www.bibleplaces.com) which makes available free samples and short but informative photo essays on many sites included on these discs.
