Last year, BiblePlaces released the Photo Companion to the Gospels, a wonderful and unique tool for Bible teachers and students. Bible Places now offers the next addition to the series, The Book of Ruth. It’s discounted at nearly half-price until April 21st, so look into this before the price goes up.
The Photo Companion to the Bible is a unique collection of digital photographs that illustrate the biblical text verse by verse. It is a PowerPoint resource with a wide variety of images.
This resource was created by a team of experienced, trained professors and scholars with a deep understanding of the Bible Lands. Each chapter of Ruth is illustrated verse-by-verse with 65 to 135 photos per chapter.
The set includes:
- New aerial photographs of Bethlehem
- Detailed markings of routes that Naomi and Ruth traveled
- Annotations explaining image selection and background
- Free lifetime updates
- Generous copyright permissions
The website offer free downloadable sample of this resource, covering Ruth 2:1-4. Look through it and read the illuminating commentary included with the PowerPoint slides. This is an ideal resource for teaching the Bible in churches or classrooms, as well as for personal study.
I use the Photo Companion to the Gospels regularly in my teaching and study, along with the complete BiblePlaces photo set. These resources provide insights and images unavailable elsewhere. I recommend them highly for every Bible teacher and student and look forward to delving into my new purchase of The Book of Ruth.
