I have never put in so much time and energy into a calendar before this one. And then there were delays with the printer I hired, which tested my patience and trust in His timing, and after postponing our preorder launch date three weeks (!) we are finally here! And they are at their lowest price they'll ever be right now until 10/13.
Introducing our "12 Holy Land Verses 2018 Calendar"!!!
This calendar was inspired by my own trip to Israel this past summer. We had an amazing guide, who is also a biblical history professor here in the states. We saw sites that were archeologically and historically accurate and biblically significant. I mean, if you ever wondered about these places while reading the Old Testament, like where David fought Goliath, where prophet Elijah slaughtered the prophets of Baal, the well where Jesus conversed with a Samaritan woman—I saw them in person! The Bible is inerrant and sufficient, we know that, so seeing these sites didn't make the Scriptures any more perfect, however, it brought me more assurance. It strengthened my faith, and it was simply so fun and deeply interesting.
So I put together 12 of these sites that were beautiful (because I have to be honest, some of the sites weren't necessarily pretty), and just so you can experience a glimpse of what I did, I've included the biblical context and historical background along with them. You can see the bible passage that is relevant to the site, and a short commentary explaining what really happened there.
Each month is not just beautiful but also informative! These sites that I've illustrated are pleasing to the eye on their own, but knowing why they are significant adds more depth to them.
If you are looking for a unique but functional gift this holiday season, this is it! It's perfect for any believer, theologian, teacher, history buff, bookworm, artist, and the list goes on! And remember, our calendars always repurpose as 8x10 prints, so you get to keep all of them ;) Nothing is wasted.
Hope you enjoy these as much as I've poured myself into them. x
