For a variety of reasons, many people are unable to visit the Holy Land and the other lands of the Meditteranean. This book seeks to bring these places to the reader. While it can be used with benefit by the traveller, it is primarily written for those at home. The focus of the book is on Jesus and Paul and the sites that are likely to be authentic. The text follows the chronology of Jesus and Paul and so has an overall 'story line'. Each chapter (or site) would include: description of the biblical event, any relevant previous history or associations of the site. description of site in terms of geography and archaeology, any relevant later history and what it looks like today (including maps and photos).
This engaging book brings together the author's expertise in Biblical studies and his extensive experience in leading tours around the Holy Land. Following the chronological sequence of the key events in Luke's gospel, the book comprises previous and later history of the sites where these events occurred, geographical and archaeological descriptions, maps of the relevant areas, a description of the sites today and full colour photography throughout. Suitable for the traveller and the 'armchair pilgrim' alike, In the Steps of Jesus offers vivid insights into Jesus' life and travels.
