The Holy Land is a prophetic place where history, faith, and tradition are deeply rooted and in glorious evidence, a crossroads of peoples and armies, contested since its beginnings and inflamed by political and religious conflicts. This stirring primer on the area comprised, roughly, of Israel, the Palestinian Territories, Jordan, and parts of Lebanon, captures the cradle of three of the world's great religions in splendid photographs and reverent text. Exploring Biblical sites and religious monuments, harsh desert landscapes and verdant orchards, luxurious resorts and modern cities, this stunning album showcases not only the physical but the spiritual essence of a place steeped in history.
