round table dvd md.jpg 1. Is It Time To Throw Away Your Bible?: 2 DVD Set with the ABR Staff We presently live in a culture of great skepticism and confusion. Many scholars, scientists, historians and forces within culture believe the Bible is an outdated, irrelevant book, filled with fables, stories, and mythological constructs that are not based on reality. Members of the ABR staff gathered together in a roundtable discussion to talk about some of the criticisms presently being leveled against the Bible. In this 11 part roundtable discussion (on a 2 DVD set), find out why you can trust the Bible. Regular Price $24.99

child sacrifice dvd md.jpg 2. Canaanite Child Sacrifice and Modern Day Abortion: In this impactful DVD, Henry Smith presents the archaeological and historical evidence from antiquity for child sacrifice in Canaanite culture. Surveying the relevant biblical texts, Mr. Smith also makes connections between this horrific ancient practice and modern day abortion. You will be deeply moved and challenged to rise up and defend the unborn against the practice of abortion, a modern day form of child sacrifice. Regular Price: $15.99

victory at ai dvd full package med.jpg 3. Victory at Ai: Archaeology and Joshua 7-8. For decades, Bible critics have been saying the Israelite battle at Ai in Joshua 7-8 is not historical. ABR has conducted original archaeological research in Israel, and the evidence we have uncovered is powerful! Our excavation site matches the dozen or so requirements for a location to be the lost city of Ai. Dr. Bryant Wood untangles the mess and presents the overwhelming evidence that vindicates the Biblical account, showing once again that skeptical assertions about the Bible are without merit. Regular Price; $15.99

"I own sixteen separate Bible Atlases, and I can say unequivocally Bill Schlegel's Satellite Bible Atlas is the one I recommend. It is a gateway to some absolutely dynamic Bible study; it is theologically sound and Biblically conservative. I pray that God will use this book in your life as he has in mine." Richard Rigsby, Professor Emeritus of Old Testament and Former Director of Talbot Bible Lands Program, Talbot School of Theology

"The Satellite Bible Atlas is characterized first and foremost by beautiful satellite imagery and detailed historical markings. No other atlas features so many large maps with nearly every biblical event in Israel depicted with precise detail. Each map is accompanied by commentary that draws out the geographical significance of the history to bring the story alive to the reader. As one who has taught college and seminary students in Israel for 25 years, Bill Schlegel understands and communicates God's revelation to his people in his land in a way like few others. The Satellite Bible Atlas deserves to be the Israel field guide for the next generation of students, young and old. The atlas is also ideal for students in introductory Bible classes." Todd Bolen, author of the Pictorial Library of Bible Lands, Associate Professor of Biblical Studies, The Master's College

"A delightful and dependable compendium of historical facts and insights. The work is thoroughly researched, punctuated throughout by helpful synchronisms with extra-biblical records, meaningfully interactive with competing opinions, and thoughtfully committed to the factual inerrancy of the Scriptural record. The map markings are remarkably helpful, and the fact that those markings are not superimposed upon a drawn map but upon cartographically-enhanced satellite photographs of the terrain adds a healthy level of reality to the work. Very much worth a focused read-through, and then perpetually valuable as a study resource no matter where the student is in the Scriptures." Doug Bookman, Professor of New Testament, Shepherds Theological Seminary

About the Author: Bill Schlegel is Associate Professor of Bible at The Master's College, Israel Bible Extension (IBEX), where he teaches biblical history, geography and Hebrew. He lives with his wife and family near Jerusalem.
