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).
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.
