In the Steps of Jesus : An Illustrated Guide to the Places of the Holy Land
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).
