Praise for the Print Edition
This book is a Holy Land tour without the cost and physical effort of an actual trip and with added, faith-affirming insights tour guides might leave out. . . . Key locations from both Old and New Testaments are sequentially visited via maps, photos, and an easy-to-read text. Despite the authors’ substantial scholarship and background in biblical history, this is a lay-friendly book with an undercurrent of excitement that history reveals God still at work. The Scripture index to locations will help pastors, teachers, and students. . . . This book is a refreshing change from just-the-facts books about Bible lands typically found in libraries. Definitely recommended for Christian school and church libraries.
