Can I view a Rose PowerPoint Presentation on my smartphone, iPod, iPad or Creative Media player?
iPhone - Yes, there are Apps available for the iPhone that will display PowerPoint Presentations. Search for PowerPoint on the App Store in iTunes.
iPod Photo & the Creative Media Player - You can export the slides as JPEG files from PowerPoint and view them as a slideshow.
iPad - Yes, you can use a variety of apps to do this including Keynote; however it is not guaranteed that all the PowerPoint presentations will run as they were intended to run in PowerPoint.
Smartphones - You can't actually run the PowerPoint (PPT) files directly but you can convert your PPTs to an appropriate format such as MP4, a common video format for various mobile device. There are converters available around the web, such as PPTMovie.
What do I need to have in order to view and print the notes, handouts, booklet, or catalog?
Your computer must have Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0 or higher. If you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader you can download a free copy of the software by following these instructions:
Go to //get.adobe.com/reader/. Follow the directions as they appear on Adobe's web site to download the Reader. This will allow you to read the worksheets, handouts, and Rose catalog. For technical support, call Adobe at (800) 833-6687.
I have Microsoft PowerPoint 2001 or newer, but my presentation still does not work effectively. What do I do?
If this happens, exit out of all programs. Open Microsoft PowerPoint, and open the Rose presentation by clicking on the File menu, click Open, and select the Rose PowerPoint presentation.
Do the Rose PowerPoint presentations have videos and/or music along with the graphics and information provided?
Currently, Rose PowerPoint presentations are for teaching use only. They provide the instructor with teacher's notes, student handouts, and well-researched, informative information along with related paintings, photographs, and illustrations. For this reason, videos and music are not provided.
Do I need to have an LCD projector in order to show my presentations to the rest of the class?
A LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) projector projects the image from your computer onto a screen for classroom viewing. For a more inexpensive route, you can display these PowerPoint presentations on your computer monitor or your television screen by using a PC-to-TV converter. Rose Publishing does not provide either the LCD projector or the PC-to-TV converter.
I can open the presentation; however, none of the hyperlinks work.
The hyperlinks work only while a slide show is running - not while you are in normal view or slide sorter view. Click the slide show button.

CollegeInstructorBemidji, MNAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent examination of the topic.June 20, 2014CollegeInstructorBemidji, MNAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I received from Rose Publishing the following Powerpoint to review: Why Trust The Bible?
I am the Chair of the Biblical Studies department at my college and teach various courses in Biblical Studies. I have used this powerpoint throughout this past school year and have found it very well done and helpful for the classroom.
This powerpoint consists of 150 slides. It begins with a menu which allows you to jump to the section you would like to examine. The menu choices are: Why Trust the Bible?, How Were the Stories Passed Down?, How Can We Know the Bible Was Copied Accurately?, Who Chose the Books in My Bible?, How Reliable Is My Bible?, and Timeline.
The first section, Why Trust the Bible? introduces both the skeptic and believer's sides of this issue. The next four sections of the powerpoint examine different facets of this issue while upholding the accuracy of the biblical text. How Were the Stories Passed Down focuses on the New Testament; in particular the accuracy of Jesus' life. Interwoven throughout are questions raised by skeptics followed by responses to this question.
The next section questions the accuracy of the Bible's transmission through a text critical examination of the Old and New Testament. It does not minimize the fact that there are differences between various manuscripts, but does rightly state that these variants do not affect any "vital aspect of Christian faith."
The powerpoint then examines the question of who chose the books of the Bible. Beginning with the New Testament, it notes the questions of the skeptics and proceeds to give a history of how the New Testament books were decided. The transmission of the Old Testament is briefly discussed (2 slides) before presenting the conclusion that we can be assured the Bible accurately reflects historical truth. The final section returns to the initial question of Why Trust the Bible? This is again answered by honestly evaluating the evidence, not sidestepping issues. The concluding timeline focuses on the New Testament. The "appendix" contains footnotes connected to previous slides along with verses which support the information in the slideshow.
This is an excellent collection of slides which would be useful in the classroom setting, for Sunday school, or even to supplement the Sunday morning sermon. The slides are not locked so the information can be tweaked to fit the particular situation. In addition to the slides, there are notes available in pdf format.
This powerpoint is an incredible bargin for the price. I highly recommend it to all who desire to help their students/congregation better understand the issues surrounding the formation and transmission of the Bible.
