Publisher: Harvard University Press
Jerusalem is more than a tourist site it is a city where every square mile is layered with historical significance, religious intensity, and extraordinary stories. It is a past marked by three great forces: religion, war, and monumentality. In this book, Goldhill takes on this peculiar archaeology of human imagination, hope, and disaster to provide a tour through the history of this most image-filled and ideology-laden city."
A trip to the Holy Land is on the bucket list of many Christians. But planning a meaningful trip in a place so filled with significant sites is an imposing task. Most travel guides are not prepared to link the Bible and land in an accurate and meaningful way because they are written for people of all faiths. So how can a Christian traveler prepare a trip that will illuminate God's Word and reveal the Lord's presence? In The Holy Land for Christian Travelers, John A. Beck provides a guide to the Holy Land for Christians with explanations of the biblical significance of important sites. The entries provide key Scripture references for reflection and a guide to the land that will encourage communion with God and a genuine spiritual experience for travelers as they walk in the footsteps of Jesus. A trip to the Holy Land can be a worship-filled, once-in-a-lifetime spiritual journey. This book puts a biblical scholar and experienced Holy Land guide at the reader's side.
This full-color guide to Jerusalem includes vibrant photos and helpful planning maps. Calls to prayer echo out over valleys and rooftops. The wailing siren for Shabbat and the ringing of church bells are omnipresent. This is a city of religious pilgrimages and a land of ancient stories, where even the bodies of water whisper of history and miracles. This is the trip of a lifetime. It will leave you with a new sense of wonder—and some great stories to share. In this full-color book, expert traveler Genevieve Belmaker tells you everything you need to know to make this trip possible: How to get there, how long it will take, and where to stop along the way—including information on Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa, the West Bank, Eilat, and Petra, Jordan How to choose the best tours and means of transportation, including tips on border crossings. Background on religious and cultural sites, from the Western Wall and Dome of the Rock to the Church of the Nativity—and where to find them
Knowing the Land helps us understand the Book in new and vivid ways. Charles Dyer, a Bible scholar and licensed tour guide for Israel, and Greg Hatteberg, graduate of the Institute of Holy Land Studies in Jerusalem, created this reference guide for pilgrims who want to deepen the spiritual impact of their trip to Israel, as well as other travelers who just want to know more: Where did Jesus walk? Where is King David buried? Where is Mt. Sinai? You¿ll find detailed information about five key Bible lands: Israel, Egypt, Greece, Jordan, and Turkey. This guide includes a full color 32-page photo insert, practical tips for travelers, a 4-week prayer guide for preparing for your trip, and detailed maps and an outline of Bible history.
