Since we are in the Land of Abraham…

UrMusic.jpg…we thought you might like to hear the music from his time!

Our next DVD in the Footprints of God series will be entitled “Abraham, Father of Faith & Works.” We will begin filming in Iraq — in Ur of Chaldees — which is the home of Abraham, just south of Baghdad (Gen 11:28-31). We plan to have it released September 2010.

Thanks to the Biblical Archaeology Society to which I subscribe, we can now listen to music that Abraham listened to.

Click here to listen to The Music of Ur, a musical duet featuring a lyre and double pipes such as those found at the ancient city of Ur. Click here to read the the article in Archaeology review.

Enjoy! And you will hear this kind of music on our next Footprints of God DVD.

Hi Steve,
Thats a fine idea to make a video of the times of Abraham. I wish you luck with it. Why not consider using the correct music that Abraham would have listened to ?

The Lyre of Ur is a great project and has connected with many through its ancient sounds…last week at the Smithsonian and the Library of Congress.
Get in touch with us soon.
regards

Andy

Steve, I have been waiting anxiously for the “Abraham, Father of Faith and Works”
DVD. You can’t keep us waiting so long. What’s up? God Bless you…Mike

TENTATIVE PLANS ARE TO SHOOT IN MARCH 2011 WITH RELEASE IN THE FALL OF 2011. ABRAHAM WILL BE FOLLOWED BY ELIJAH/ELISHA AND THEN DOCTORS OF THE CHURCH. THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND KIND WORDS.
