The land of Israel is as much a character of Scripture as Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses. And just as important. Praise the Lord someone has recognized this . . . and written something about it!
It's always a pleasant surprise when an author knows whereof he or she speaks. Cyndi Parker does, indeed, know whereof she speaks. Her extensive, intensive association with the land upon which Jesus walked lends color, sound, and texture to her written words, and provides a solid foundation upon which they rest.
When I was offered the opportunity to review this work, by Hendrickson Publishing, I couldn't get to the ordering site fast enough. True bibliophiles (of which I unabashedly claim to be) recognize, instinctively, important books "on sight."
This is an important book.
It belongs in the library . . . excuse me, on the desk . . . of everyone who spends anytime in the Word of God.
Get this book, and let the land of Israel tell you her story of Jesus!
I received this book free of charge in exchange for my open and honest review.
