Pontius Pilate by Maier for only 99 cents

This is a worthwhile read of what Maier--a well-known historian with other books on antiquity--calls "documented historical fiction." Only 99 cents on Amazon as a Kindle download. (Only for a limited time?) Click on the graphic to check it out.

Google Earth Pro is now free!

I have frequently blogged about the value of Google Earth (a free program) for exploring and understanding the biblical lands. Somewhat amazingly, Google has now released Google Earth Pro for free. (It used to be a $399/year upgrade.) While mainly oriented to business users, the Pro version has advanced tools for measuring, creating maps, and producing high resolution videos.
You can get the download HERE and follow the directions on that page.
