The Unvarying East


Charles Scribner’s Sons, T. Fisher Unwin 1912

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


E. J. Hardy believed that a deeper understanding of the geology and the people living in the Holy Land would lead to a better comprehension of the Bible, and his succinct and informative book The Unvarying East is a practical guide to the land and people of Palestine. “The acquisition of knowledge of Eastern ways gives us, if not a Fifth Gospel, certainly a setting of the four we have, in newer and more clearly cut type.” From wedding and funeral customs, animal and plant life, climate and weather, food and clothes—Hardy encapsulates contemporary life and land in the East, while drawing our attention to their mention in the Scriptures.
