An authoritative and colourful guide to the key sites visited by Jesus, written and compiled by an experienced tour guide of the Holy Land who is also a theology lecturer at the University of Oxford. The focus of the book is on Jesus and the sites that are likely to be authentic. The text follows the chronology of Jesus' life and so has an overall 'story line'. Each chapter (or site description) includes: a description of the biblical event, any relevant previous history or associations of the site, a site description in terms of geography and archaeology, any relevant later history, and what it looks like today (maps and photographs).

Dr Peter Walker studied Classics and Early Church History at Cambridge University and has done extensive research at post-doctoral level on attitudes to Jerusalem in the time of both the Bible and the Early Church. For many years he taught New Testament Studies at Wycliffe Hall within the University of Oxford and was for five years Professor of Biblical Studies at Trinity School for Ministry, near Pittsburgh in the United States. He has authored a dozen books and written numerous articles on Jesus, the New Testament and the Holy Land today, as well as on issues in the Anglican Communion. Peter is an ordained clergyman in the Church of England and has led guided tours to the lands of the Bible for over 30 years. He and his wife, Georgie, now live back in the UK and have two married children.
