This dynamic resource includes nine hundred photographs from sites in Greece and Turkey (ancient Asia Minor) illuminating the religious and civic lives of peoples encountered by Paul and other leaders in the earliest churches. Cities featured include Athens, Olympia, Corinth, Pergamon, Delphi, Philippi, Ephesus, and Thessalonike. In addition to photos, this resource includes maps, bibliographies, and detailed historical information about the sites and artifacts.

Each slide is accompanied by an explanation of the image and the particular elements in the photograph. This stunning array of images and commentary is a powerful teaching and reference tool to bring alive the world of the early Christians for students and laypersons alike.

    For Visual Teachers: I have not used the logos version, but bought the real version of this and it has great pictures and each picture is accompanied by a massive amount of location and archaeological information. Pros: Great photos and information. Cons: This is really more of an ancient city study than a Bible study. Very few of the photographs directly relate to specific Bible text.
