This library also includes the beginning of a Global Digital Atlas with over 160 high-resolution color maps. There’s even a mini-course to promote global awareness.

See if you agree: This DVD on the 10/40 Window and the major world religions are destined to become best sellers. I just hope they don’t sell out too soon. Just to get Israel Houghton’s “We Speak To Nations” would be well worth the $12.95. Shew. At that price, this DVD is a steal. Best thing since those Urbana videos from the turn of the new century. Finally, they’re refreshed. Yes!
