Overview
This is the third edition of this popular guide book to the biblical sites in both Israel and Jordan. It has been revised and rewritten, with new pictures, illustrations, maps, and plans. The Pilgrim Books team has conducted or accompanied more than sixty pilgrimage groups to the Holy Land and have produced a book that is concise and informative. It contains a mine of practical information on both countries and is profusely illustrated, so that it becomes a colourful souvenir, the stimulant to a host of happy memories for years after your return.
Description
A pilgrimage to the Holy Land offers each of us the opportunity of a spiritual re-awakening and a reaffirmation of faith. For many it will be made in the company of like-minded people, while others will discover the joy of exploring the sacred sites independently. It is firstly an enjoyable holiday; here the opportunity any holiday has to refresh and relax takes on added purpose. This fully illustrated guide explores the historical context and the people of the Holy Land. It then takes you through the sites of Jerusalem: Outside the walls in the Kidron Valley and on the Mount of Olives; the Old City - including the Stations of the Cross and the Holy Sepulchre; the Temple Area; the events of Holy Week; east and west Jerusalem. Journeys from Jerusalem: Bethlehem - Hebron - Herodion; Emmaus and Bethany; South to Beersheba and Eilat; The Dead Sea - Masada - Qumran; north to Galilee via the West Bank and Samaria; north to Galilee via Jericho and the Jordan Valley. Detailed coverage of The Galilee: Lower Galilee; Around the Lake; Upper Galilee. The Coastal Plain. The Jordan Section explores the biblical history and recent developments. The guide begins in Amman, then covers the cities of the Decapolis and Jerash, the Desert Castles, the King's Highway - Bethany beyond the Jordan, Madaba, Mount Nebo and others - Petra, Aqaba and Wadi Rum. There is a practical section for each country, including currency, border crossings, and national, Jewish and Islamic holidays. Profusely illustrated in full colour with maps and plans.
