Book a Wonders of the Bible Presentation
PLEASE NOTE: As of May 2018, all of our available dates up until Fall 2019 have been taken. If you would like to know if there is a change in schedule, please let us know and we will put you in any date that might become available. ALSO: we may be able to offer "single table" presentations in between our already-booked dates. If you are interested in a smaller exhibit/presentation like this, please let us know.
We would love to come out and give an exhibit and presentation to your church, school, home school group, or professional organization. Our event is suitable for all ages. Here are a few questions and answers:
Q: What is "Wonders of the Bible"?
A: Not to be confused with the Biblical "signs and wonders" (something entirely different), OUR "Wonders of the Bible" is both a private collection, AND a "mom and pop", grass-roots Christian outreach ministry. We began our collection in 1976, documenting the history of the Nobel prize-winning fields of lasers and holography. WOTB grew out of one of the sub-categories. It is now an entire collection in its own right.
Q: What is your mission statement?
A: To proclaim Jesus Christ through visual arts, science and communication technology: past, present, and future -- from micro to macro.
Q: What are your fees?
A: We do not charge a set fee. You are encouraged to give only as the Lord places on your heart.
Q: What is unique or different about your exhibit?
A: We have exhibition items that, most likely, people have never seen or even heard of before ... and might not ever get the chance to see again. For other items, people would have to travel to museums around the world, so we bring these world-famous items to you as 3-dimensional laser holograms. For the science of God's Creation of the universe, we have a slice of meteorite moon rock NWA 5000, held in the highest esteem by both the research and collecting communities; we have a slice of the oldest known object in the universe: the Allende carbonaceous chondrite meteorite, the most important and most thoroughly researched meteorite of all time; along with the oldest fossil recording of life on earth (Strelley pond stromatolites). To a Biblical / Genesis adherent, they all date back to the week of Creation. We have the ONLY public 3D lenticular reproduction of the Delk human / dinosaur track fossil footprint(s) from the Creation Evidence Museum in Glen Rose, Texas (purportedly formed during the flood of Noah). In addition, we have the smallest Biblical art and scripture in the world viewed under microscopes, and real 3-dimensional laser holograms of ancient Biblical artifacts. We exhibit one of only two "Face in the Shroud" computer-generated holograms currently in the USA. Not to mention authentic etchings of the life of Jesus Christ by the world-famous artist Rembrandt. Then there is the first edition 1611 King James Bible title pages of Genesis and Revelation, an ancient Hebrew scroll of Creation and the Flood, the first depiction of Noah's Ark in a Bible, along with wood samples brought back from a famous and well-known expedition to Mt. Ararat in search of Noah's Ark. And how about a depiction of the earth *as seen from space* from a Bible in the year 1560! So, yes, this is certainly a unique Christian experience for those that get a chance to see it. AND you can see and learn up close and personal -- without having to travel anywhere!
Q: What does your exhibit entail?
A: In order to make things as easy and as simple as possible, our entire exhibit was designed to be displayed on your own standard folding tables. We can provide a very simple single table set-up, showing a few examples of select items ... or a complete multiple table set-up, with each individual table being its own topical display. So we can accommodate very small intimate gatherings, or larger events in the hundreds and even thousands (our largest event was 90,000 people for a weekend in NYC in 2017).
Please keep in mind that it takes approximately 1 hour to set up for our single table exhibit, and 3 hours to set up for our larger exhibit of 3 or more tables. For the larger exhibits, it is much better to set up the day / night before (if possible). Take down is somewhat faster, but we still need time to be very careful packing very fragile, valuable, historical exhibit items.
Q: What does your presentation entail?
A: Our powerpoint presentation provides interesting stories and educational information on all of the displays in the exhibit: Bible pages, micro- and nano-scripture, Shroud of Turin research, meteorites, fossils, Biblical artifacts, and so on. Of course, our true area of authority is with lasers and holograms, so we spend a little more time on the science and technology behind these Nobel prize-winning fields: such as "How are Holograms Made in the Laser Laboratory". Great for any STEM learning. Hey ... if you're going to learn about laser holograms, you might as well learn from the person that "wrote the book" ... a book endorsed right on the cover by the MIT Museum in Cambridge, MA.
Q: What area of the country do you serve?
A: At present, we serve a local area consisting of Eastern PA (Philly, Lancaster, Harrisburg, Allentown, Reading, Scranton, etc.), all of New Jersey, Eastern New York (NYC area, the Islands, etc.), and all of Delaware, Maryland and Washington, D.C.
Q: Where have you exhibited and/or lectured/instructed?
A: For 35 years we presented laser and holography exhibits / lectures / workshop programs in world-class venues such as the Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C. (summer workshop programs), the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia; Liberty Science Center, NJ; Lehigh University; University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology; California Institute of Technology; NASA / Northrop Grumman; Fuji Film Corp.; Dupont; MENSA and many, many more.
For Wonders of the Bible in particular, some of our most recent events have included: The Institute for Scientific and Biblical Research, Lancaster, Pennsylvania; The New York Hall of Science, New York City, New York; The Creation Evidence Museum, Glen Rose, Texas; Creation Celebration Conference 2017, Newark, Delaware; Scientific and Biblical Creationist Fellowship, Newark, Delaware; New York Microscopical Society, Clinton, New Jersey ... and more.
Q: How long are your exhibits and presentations?
A: We can do single day, multiple day, and/or evening exhibits and presentations. Our powerpoint presentation runs about an hour. Before and after the powerpoint presentation, folks can visit our exhibit tables to see and experience the displays.
Q: What part of the year are you available? How often?
A: Our preferred seasons are spring and fall: two months in the spring (apr/may) and three months in the fall (sept/oct/nov). For each of those months mentioned above, we like to keep bookings to one or two events per month. So, as you can see, its good to grab us early.
Q: Are you church members?
A: Yes, we are members of Christ Evangelical Congregational Church in Allentown. Founded by Jacob Albright (Jakob Albrecht), the denomination was founded in Pennsylvania. It dates back to the late 1700's / early 1800's. Today, as the EC Church, it has its headquarters and seminary in Meyerstown, Lebanon County, Pennsylvania.
Our Wonders of the Bible exhibit and presentation is for ALL people of ALL churches. We stand firmly on Biblical creationism, inerrancy, perspicuity and authority. θεόπνευστος (theopneustos): "God-breathed."
Q: Any special memories?
A: Yes, many! One in particular comes to mind: We were exhibiting at the New York Hall of Science for World Maker Faire. At our table, someone read and experienced the Lord's Prayer for the first time in their lives -- as it was being transmitted on a beam of laser light. They never knew that anything called the Lord's Prayer even existed before that moment. They said that it was "beautiful" and "amazing". It was at that moment that I knew we had found an entirely new way of reaching others with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Q: Why LASERS?
A: Because I can't sing!
Q: Can we come and visit you?
A: We would love that, but unfortunately, not at this time. When we had our home holography studio / lab, we welcomed visitors from around the world for 35 years. Now that we have sold our home and moved into our retirement residence we no longer host visitors. Plus, everything is now packed in travel road cases and held in storage, ready to hit the road. We're ready when you're ready!
Q: How can I get more information or book a presentation and exhibit?
