A visual tour of the promised land، from the stark vistas of the Judean wilderness to the lush banks of Jordan، for those who want to see the places of the Bible from the comfort of their own homes—and from the best angles
Laid out in a stunning series of color spreads، the history of the Holy Land—from Bible times to the present day—is brought vividly to life. Peter Walker unearths the rich layers of history of this sacred place، exploring the backdrop to the events that occurred in Old Testament times through to critical moments such as the Muslim conquest، the crusades، and the modern rediscovery of Bible sites. The Holy Land frequently features in today's headlines as a much fought-for territory. Many know part of its story، as recounted in the Bible، but what happened after Jesus' time? This visually-led guide beautifully captures the richness of the area bringing its story to life in a magical way.
