The Holy Land Handbook: History, Geography, Culture, Holy Sites: by- George W. Knight (ISBN-9781643524009)
Visit the Holy Land, wherever you might be.
This colorfully illustrated guide to the history, culture,geography, and key sites of the Holy Land will transport you back to the world of Abraham, Moses, David, Jesus, and Paul-where the story of the Bible played out in real life.
Explaining the who, what, when, where, and why of more than 130 Bible places, The Holy Land Handbook provides details on the history, setting, and importance of each locale- cities, villages, valleys, rivers, lakes, and more. For ease of use, sites are grouped into regions, including
- the wilderness south of the Dead Sea
- west of the Dead Sea to the Mediterranean
- inside the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City
- outside Jerusalem
- south of the Sea of Galilee to Samaria
- around the Sea of Galilee and north to Mount Hermon
and each entry is accompanied by helpful photographs or paintings.
The Holy Land Handbook is ideal preparation for anyone planning a visit to Israel and its environs-and an equally great read for armchair travelers who want to better understand the Bible story.
