Coming Soon from Zondervan - Glo

Zondervan has a new software package coming out called Glo. I'm not up on a lot of Bible software but this looks like an exciting package. Take a look at the website and see the trailer.

Here's the catalog description:

"Glo is a new interactive Bible that brings God’s Word to life through HD video, photographs, animations, maps, reading plans, 360-degree virtual tours, and a unique zoomable interface for fast, easy, visual navigation on PC computers and smart phones. Glo unpacks the Bible through 5 main lenses: Bible —The most read, most trusted NIV translation of the Bible in its natural order, with resources and media related to each verse. Atlas—See where major stories of the Bible happened geographically alongside map overlays, tours, photos, and HD video. Timeline—View when the events happened chronologically and visually through a zoomable interface. Topical—Address major life questions through relevant verses on thousands of subjects from leading pastors, scholars and other experts. Media—Browse biblical content by media type, including a huge collection of HD video, virtual tours, articles, photos, art, and more."

It should be out this October and will sell for $79.99. I placed an order for 30 for the store so we will have plenty when they come out. This could make a great Christmas gift.

Another point of interest for scholars: Glo contains the entire text of the best-selling Zondervan Pictorial Encyclopedia of the Bible.
