This was a typical three-table set-up in a school gymnasium.
Information on booking Wonders of the Bible:
We would love to come out and exhibit at your church, school, home school group, conference or professional organization. Our events are suitable for all ages. Here are a few questions and answers:
Q: What is "Wonders of the Bible"?
A: Wonders of the Bible is a private family collection of Biblical artifacts that document how the Word of God travels through time.
Q: What is your mission statement?
A: To proclaim Jesus Christ through visual arts, science and communication technologies: past, present, and future.
Q: What are your fees?
A: We do not charge a set fee. Groups are encouraged to give a love offering only as they are able, and that which the Lord places on their heart.
Q: What is unique or different about your exhibit?
A: We want to be known as providing a very unique Christian experience that will be remembered for a long time. We specialize in exhibit items that many people have never seen before ... and might not ever see again. The term for this is "Sui Generis": which means "unique and in a class by itself".
Q: How do you set up your exhibit?
A: In order to make things as easy and as simple as possible, our entire exhibit was designed to be displayed on standard folding tables. Most churches and groups have these tables. We can exhibit a single table (smaller) ... or multiple table (larger) set-up. We bring a number of our most popular display items ... a nice sampler of the collection containing cuneiform tablets, Hebrew scrolls, ancient manuscripts, famous historic Bibles, micro and nano-scripture, lasers, holograms, and more.
Q: What does your presentation consist of?
A: We have a powerpoint presentation that provides interesting and educational information on all of the items on display in the exhibit. Each item has a very interesting story to telL!
Q: What area of the country do you serve?
A: At present, we serve a local area consisting of Eastern PA (Philadelphia, Lancaster, Harrisburg, Allentown, Reading, Scranton, etc.), all of New Jersey, Eastern New York (NYC area, the Islands, etc.), all of Delaware, Eastern Maryland and Washington, D.C.
Q: Where have you exhibited and/or lectured/instructed?
A: For 35 years I (Frank) 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; NASA / Northrop Grumman; Fuji Film Corp.; Dupont Holographics; and many, many more (it is truly a very long list). I am now very happily retired.
By return invitation, I have been a MENSA keynote address speaker at regional conferences in 1999, and again in 2017 (lasers and holography are Nobel prize-winning fields of physics).
For Wonders of the Bible in particular, some of our more 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, 2018, 2019, Newark, Delaware; Scientific and Biblical Creationist Fellowship, Newark, Delaware; New York Microscopical Society, Clinton, New Jersey; Eastern Christian Conference, Hershey, Pennsylvania; ... and more.
Q: How long are your exhibits and presentations?
A: We can do single day / evening, and multiple day / evening exhibits and presentations. Our powerpoint presentation runs approx. 45 minutes to an hour. Before and after the powerpoint presentation, folks can visit our exhibit tables to see and experience the historic items on display.
Q: What part of the year are you available? How often?
A: Our preferred seasons are spring and fall: three months in the spring (mar/apr/may) and three months in the fall (sept/oct/nov). This is to protect very valuable artifacts from the coldest and hottest travel weather.
Q: Do you serve all Christian denominations?
A: We serve everyone and anyone who comes to see and learn. Even non-believers have enjoyed the purely scientific and technological aspect (lasers, holograms, micro and nano tech, etc.) represented. Our exhibit and presentation contains all Christian content. We DO stand firmly on Biblical creationism, inerrancy, perspicuity and authority. θεόπνευστος (theopneustos): "God-breathed." In other words, the reason we have an exhibit table dedicated to Genesis and Creation is because we believe that the Biblical account of Genesis is scientifically and historically accurate and true. Along those same lines, for instance, one does not have to believe that the famous Shroud of Turin is the actual burial cloth of Jesus Christ. But they may enjoy learning about the immense scientific and technological investigation that has been performed on it (such as 3D laser holographic imaging). And so on. The choice is yours ... as it always has been, and as it always will. At the same time, for us, the Christian Holy Bible remains the ultimate authoritative foundation ... as it always has been, and as it always will.
Q: Any special memories?
A: Yes! 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 very first time in their lives. It was being transmitted on a laser beam! They never knew that 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: Can we come and visit you?
A: We would love that, but unfortunately, not at this time. Everything is kept in road cases in controlled storage, ready to hit the road. We're ready when you're ready!
Q: What about online presentations, i.e. videoconferencing with schools, etc.?
A: The items in the collection are best seen and experienced in person. But we are tossing around the idea of providing virtual programs in the near future -- live and pre-recorded.
As an alternative, I do provide monthly podcasts on various topics centered around the collection. You can access this new area by going to my Wonders of the Bible Podcast web page.
Q: How can I get more information or book a presentation and exhibit?
A: Call us (Frank and Debi) with any questions at: (484) 387-5320. or email at top of page (click on "contact"). We would love to hear from you!
