A trip to the Holy Land is on the bucket list of many Christians. But planning a meaningful trip in a place so filled with significant sites is an imposing task. Most travel guides are not prepared to link the Bible and land in an accurate and meaningful way because they are written for people of all faiths. So how can a Christian traveler prepare a trip that will illuminate God's Word and reveal the Lord's presence?
In The Holy Land for Christian Travelers, John A. Beck provides a guide to the Holy Land for Christians with explanations of the biblical significance of important sites. The entries provide key Scripture references for reflection and a guide to the land that will encourage communion with God and a genuine spiritual experience for travelers as they walk in the footsteps of Jesus. A trip to the Holy Land can be a worship-filled, once-in-a-lifetime spiritual journey. This book puts a biblical scholar and experienced Holy Land guide at the reader's side.
About the Author
John A. Beck is a Bible geographer with a passion to make the Bible's geography meaningful. Beck earned his PhD in theology (Hebrew and Old Testament) from Trinity International University in 1997. In the years that followed, he has taught courses in Hebrew, Old Testament, and geography of the Holy Land at various colleges and universities. He is currently an independent scholar and freelance writer living in Germantown, Wisconsin. However he seems most in his element walking the backcountry of the Holy Land pointing out various species of plants, talking about impact of topography on culture, and giving insights into familiar Bible stories which had eluded long-time Bible readers. He spends a portion of each year teaching in Israel for Jerusalem University College as well as offering seminars throughout the United States and the world, speaking on the value of cultural-geographical literacy for Bible readers.
