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.
Peter Walker studied Classics and Early Church History at Cambridge University and has done extensive research at a post-doctoral level on Christian attitudes to Jerusalem. Peter is now Professor of Biblical Studies at Trinity School for Ministry (near Pittsburgh, USA), having previously taught at Wycliffe Hall within the University of Oxford. He has led many study tours to the Holy Land. His books include: In the Steps of Jesus, In the Steps of Saint Paul, The Lion Guide to the Bible, and The Story of the Holy Land.
