The Holy Land For Christian Travelers

"The Holy Land For Christian Travelers" is a great read for anyone wanting to travel to or learn more about the Holy Land.  The book centers around 3 different tours: 

 

- Jerusalem (3 days)
- Jerusalem and Judea (5 days)
- Throughout Israel (12 days)

 

Each tour contains suggested itineraries, cost (if any), what to wear, location, what are the must see sites, and other pertinent information.

 

There is a lot to like about this book:

 

-  Very readable - excellent writing style that grabs the reader's interest.
-  Many colorful maps helps the reader see where sites are located.
-  Helpful charts of various topics.
-  Description of the different geographic areas (Coastal Plains, Central Mountains, Jordon Rift Valley, Transjordan Plateau) - such info as: climate, ease of travel, elevation, etc.
-  Description of historical periods leading up to today.
-  Biblical importance (Old and New Testament) of the mentioned sites.
-  Book is good size (not too small print and not too big to carry around).

 

If I am able to visit the Holy Land someday, this book will definitely go with me!  In the meantime, I will often use this as a reference for discipleship classes or sermons to help attendees better understand biblical sites.  Will also refer to the title to prepare me for a trip someday to the Holy Land, Lord willing.

 

Highly recommended title.  I was given a review copy by Baker Books in exchange for a fair review.
