Palm Trees and Pyramids Seen by Joseph and Mary When They Fled With the Christ-Child
Into Egypt to Escape Herod’s Cruel Law.
The Only Complete
Bible
Library
Ever Prepared For
POPULAR USE
EVERY ONE knows that the
Bible is the most interesting
and fascinating book ever written.
But in order to fully appreciate its
wonderful charm and its wealth
of hidden beauty, it is necessary to
know more about the Holy Land
and its people, to have the benefit
of authoritative comments upon the
text and some simple method ot easily and quickly locating the different incidents and thrilling events of Bible
history. There are many books based upon the Bible and Bible history, it is true, but the use of such a collection
of books requires so much skill and labor in referring from one book to another as to make it impracticable for
ordinary use. Realizing the great need for a simple yet complete and combined “biblical library,” at a price with
in the reach of all, the Society has prepared and now offers the
Self-Interpreting Bible Library
Consisting of four splendid volumes, containing the complete Authorized Version of the Bible, from Gen
esis to Revelations, with Commentaries and Study Helps on the same page with the text, History of the
people of Bible Times, Bible Atlas, Life of Christ and the Prophets, Dictionary and Concordance, Cross
Index—beautifully illustrated with a wonderful collection of photographs of the Holy Lands arranged
in connection with the text. It makes reading the Bible a pleasure and a delight, and opens up a world of
beauty and interest that has been almost meaningless to the average reader. Edited by Bishop John H.
Vincent. Indorsed by Bishop D. S. Tuttle, Rev. Frank W. Gunsaulus, Gipsy Smith, and leading ministers
of all Protestant denominations.
The 448 Actual Photographs.
Realizing how much easier it would be to appreciate the Bible if
every one could visit the Holy Lands and see for themselves the places and
scenes of Bible history, the Society equipped a special expedition, at a cost of
$25,000, to tour Bible Lands, and to secure actual photographs of all the places
made sacred by the footsteps of Christ and the great events of Bible history.
The result is a truly priceless collection of 448 wonderful 7 in. by 10 in. Bibli
cal and Historical photographs, by means of which the Society now brings
Bible Lands to us in our own homes.
