Next summer (July/August 2009) we will be celebrating the 200th issue of BAR. In preparation for this momentous occasion, we’ve been looking back at all the amazing things and people that have graced the pages of BAR over the years. But the most important is you—our subscribers, who have kept us going for all 200 issues. So, whether you’ve subscribed from the beginning, volunteered on one of our featured digs, or simply enjoyed reading BAR when it arrived in your mailbox every two months, we want to hear from you! Read on, and who knows? Your response could be printed in this special issue of BAR.
Part of what makes BAR unique is our ability to appeal to such a wide audience. So who is our “typical” reader? We’ve put a survey on our Web site to determine everything from what you believe about the Bible to what parts of BAR are your favorites. Go online to www.biblical archaeology.org/survey to complete our reader survey. Participants will receive a $5 coupon for BAS merchandise.
