A Christian In Israel: A Journey In The Holy Land And The Concerns Of Today

Smith had made pilgrimages to many of the world’s sacred places, so when a friend issued an invitation to visit Jerusalem, it was accepted without hesitation. His trip to the Holy Land, sacred to Muslims, Christians, and Jews, shaped Smith’s life. This is a land extreme in politics, emotion and geography, as much a state of mind as it is a physical place. It is, as Smith says, impossible to be a tourist in Israel. One becomes an adventurer. This is not a guidebook, but an idiosyncratic look at Israel and Palestine. One of the most interesting features is a 15-page bibliography with plenty of recommended reading. A Christian in Israel would be useful reading for anyone planning a trip to the Middle East. mRb
