On this page we have a continually growing annotated list of organizations and ministries that we think would be of value one way or another to students of the Scriptures. Under each heading we have a brief summary (often a quote from the organization's home page) of what that work seeks to accomplish, followed by their website address.
When we recommend an organization or ministry, that endorsement does not necessarily mean that we agree with all of its beliefs, practices, or ideas. All of these links we think have value in themselves in that they contribute to the knowledge of and welfare of the Land, the People, and the Scriptures of Israel. None of these groups have asked us to list them. We do it merely as a service to our Bible students.
The list is organized into the following categories:
Archaeology - Biblical Geography
Associates for Biblical Research - Bible and Spade Magazine
A definitive Biblical perspective on Biblical archaeology
"No other publication captures the truth of the Bible like ABR's Bible and Spade. A one-of-a-kind magazine, Bible and Spade transforms the Bible into a living world with its amazing full-color photos, diagrams, graphics, maps and articles written by ABR [Associates for Biblical Research] staff and other authorities in the field."
Biblical Archaeology Review
"The Biblical Archaeology Society was founded in 1974 as a non-profit, nondenominational, charitable organization dedicated to education and to dissemination of information about archaeology in the Bible lands. The Society publishes Biblical Archaeology Review, the largest paid circulation archaeology magazine in the world."
The predominant Israeli map company.
"Carta's maps and atlases serve every conceivable need: school atlases; country and city maps; tourist guides; historical, political and other thematic maps, and CD-ROMs, to mention only a few. Today, Carta's map bank contains well over three thousand distinctive, mainly historical maps."
Ritmeyer Archaeological Design - Leen and Kathleen Ritmeyer
Ritmeyer Archaeological Design came into being in 1983, with the aim of bringing the world of Biblical Archaeology into classrooms and homes everywhere. All the items listed have been selected to help furnish you with a sympathy for and understanding of the background to the Bible narrative.
From our experience working in archaeology and leading tours to the Land, we have learnt that anything that helps us to visualize the events recorded in Scripture increases our understanding immeasurably.
