Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus & the Land?
Christ's Middle Eastern itinerary May 5, 2008
Page focuses on about 200 sites where Jesus is known to/thought to have ministered, with local color, contemporary local politics, multicultural settings, and subsequent enshrinement of these sites by a host of Christian, Islamic, and Jewish imperialists eager to claim 'holy ground' for their particular faith. Great illustrations and very useful index.
Want to REALLY understand the ministry of Jesus? Apr 18, 2000
It is extremely difficult for 20th Century, western culture Americans to think as if we were first century, eastern culture Jews. Charles Page helps the reader to get as close as we are likely to get. His intimate familiarity with both the land of the Bible and the eastern culture of those who live there bring the words and deeds of Jesus to life for the reader. This is not a devotional book nor is it a ponderous scholarly tome. If, however, the reader is a serious student of the Bible or wants to more fully understand Jesus of Nazareth, this book is not to be missed.
