“Some Places You May Never Visit”

“Some Places You May Never Visit” is the title I have chosen for a presentation Tuesday (12 noon in Puckett Auditorium) as part of the Florida College Annual [Bible] Lectures, Temple Terrace, FL. This is where I taught for 25 years, and it is always a pleasure to participate in the program. Usually I make a presentation dealing with archaeology and Bible history, archaeological artifacts in famous museums, or one of the places I have had the opportunity to visit.

Last years I spoke on “Roads Less Traveled.” The presentation this year will be about four places in Israel that are difficult to get to. I won’t give away the places now, but hopefully will be able to share some information about them in the weeks to come.

Florida College Annual Lectures 2012The main program this year, consisting of 15 lectures, is entitled Of First Importance: He Died and Was Buried. Information is available on the website of the college bookstore here. There are also links to an eBook edition  which is available in a variety of formats for only $9.99. Dr. David Edwin Harrell, respected historian, spoke Monday evening to a packed auditorium (around 1500, I estimate).
