Abstract:

Written in Jerusalem by a priest and teacher who has ministered to pilgrims from all over the world, this book draws us into the evocative landscape of the Holy Land itself. Sacred yet scarred, the lands of the Bible stimulate us to think about a range of issues that are both urgent and timeless. In Jerusalem, 'a veritable melting pot of cultures', we meditate on the question, 'What is home?' At the River Jordan, where John the Baptist delivered his radical call to repentance and baptism, we ask, 'Who am I?' In the cave of Christ's burial and resurrection in the Holy Sepulchre, we wonder, 'How can I face the darkness?' Confronted by the vast desolation of the desert, we cry, 'Dare I be alone with God?' This book has been written with both individuals and groups in mind, and will be a benefit those preparing to undertake a physical pilgrimage to the Holy Land, and to those seeking a spiritual resource to deepen lives of faith and fellowship.
