    We have used several of Ray's series for couples studies and they are excellent learning tools helping to put the Biblical writings in the historical cultural context. Those truely interested in grasping what God is saying in its full context would find Ray's materials invaluable.

    What an eye-opening study! Get closer to God and see the many Hebrew references that we as westerners miss! Use the study with the DVD of the same name. You'll be amazed!

    This is the fifth book in the That the World May Know series by Vander laan and is a very good study on the spread of the Gospel across the world following the previous four studies on the locations in Israel. I highly recommend not only this book but the entire series.
