With Believer’s Heaven, byNWR completes the trilogy of religious pictures made by preacher Estus Pirkle and filmmaker Ron Ormond (The Burning Hell and If Footmen Tire You, What Will Horses Do? can be found elsewhere on the site).
Estus was an avid photographer, and he documented both his productions and his trips to the Holy Land in countless slides. Here are a smattering of those images, picked by Pirkle expert and documentarian Brian Rosenquist.
Special thanks to Dianne Gilham.
