This handsome guide covers in a concise and authoritative way the most important sites of Christianity in the Holy Land. The author begins with what Moses saw from Mount Nebo, looking at the land and then at its rulers and people in the time of Jesus. He then traces the life of Jesus, from his birthplace in Bethlehem, to his flight into Egypt and return to Nazareth, his ministry, and the events that followed – the Passover, the Passion, and the Resurrection.
