Greetings! In response to those who have asked us to put together a "not for credit" study tour Mary and I will be offering a 13-day tour of Israel—from "Dan to Beersheba!"
I have devised a specially planned itinerary based upon my experience of leading/guiding/teaching over 100 groups in Israel. It is structured to include as many important biblical sites as possible as we study the Bible in the Land of the Bible.
I will be giving mini-lectures along the way both on the bus and on the sites, drawing from my studies. I have spent 16 years of my adult life living in, and guiding, academic groups in Israel, Jordan, Greece, and Turkey (including living, teaching, and guiding in Jerusalem for 7 years).
Tour Dates: April 29–May 11, 2018. Cost: $4,275 per person in Double Occupancy; $5,035 Single Room; Includes group airfare from NYC to TLV and Return.
For an Itinerary and additional information contact us soon (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We hope that you will be able to join us!
Carl and Mary Rasmussen
I am Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota. I received my Ph.D. in Ancient Near Eastern Studies from Dropsie University. Currently, I am an adjunct professor at the Jerusalem University College in Jerusalem and Bethel University in St. Paul, MN and have served as a consultant for a publisher and several media organizations.
In 2010 Zondervan published a new, updated version of my Zondervan Atlas of the Bible. Lavishly illustrated, the new version has been updated in every way including new maps, pictures, graphics and updated text. In 2013 Zondervan published my Zondervan Essential Atlas of the Bible. In addition, I maintain the web site www.HolylandPhotos.org that features over 5,000 free, high quality and high-resolution images of Israel, Turkey, Greece, Jordan, and Italy.
