By: G.S.P. Freeman-Grenville By definition, a guide book must be easy to carry around, and this beautifully illustrated little guide for pilgrims to the Holy Land is just that. It is principally concerned with the Gospels and the places where the events of the Redemption took place. It includes an excursion to Jordan, where the ancient Israelites wandered, and one to Sinai, to the mountain where the Ten Commandments were revealed. This is the order observed since the fourth century by pilgrims. After general notes and a historical introduction, the itineraries start from Jerusalem, and proceed to cover all the places associated with the life of Jesus Christ, and the final drama of the Passion, Resurrection and Ascension.
