CD Series: Historic Views of the Holy Land

Because of rapid changes in the Holy Lands in the last 150 years, older photographs often reveal features not visible today. Political changes, population explosions, and tourist "improvements" have significantly increased our distance from the ancient world. This CD series intends to help bridge that gap by providing high-quality photographs and illustrations from the biblical world in times past.

This project complements the popular Pictorial Library of Bible Lands series.  Because of the increasing use of computer technology for instruction, teachers of the Bible need more and better electronic visual aids.  The "Historic Views of the Holy Land" series makes available photographs and illustrations of biblical sites from the last two hundred years, in a high-quality and easy-to-use electronic format.
