  1. Nelson,

    Greetings from the UK. I am currently writing a wee book of Jonah and loved your pic of Gath Hepher and would love to use, naturally acknowledging you. Would you please give that permission? Thanks.

    Fr Denis McBride, C.Ss.R.


  2. Fr Denis: I’ll be glad to send you a picture or two of Gath Hepher, for use at not cost. Please credit the photographer and include the http://www.peace-pilgrim.com address when the photo is published. Blessing on your writing and ministry.

    Hello Dr. Kraybill, What a fantastic blog! I especially loved the pictures of Israel and Jordan depicting areas of deep cultural Biblical relevance, so often overlooked by the throngs of religious pilgrims visiting those iconic 4th century shrines (as stunning as they are).
