About "The Story of the Holy Land"
This is a highly illustrated, visually led guide through the story of the Holy Land, from Bible times to the present day. The Holy Land frequently features in today's headlines as a much fought-for territory. Many know part of its story, as recounted in the Bible, but what happened after Jesus' time? This book explores the OT and NT history of the Holy Land, as well as everything that happened later - the Muslim conquest, the crusades, and the modern rediscovery of Bible sites - unearthing the rich layers of history of this sacred place.
