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.

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.
