Reviews - What do customers think about Reflections Of Israel?
Great coffee-table material! Oct 9, 2009
This book was a good reflection of what it is like visiting and touring Israel. The pictures and information were wonderful. She added personal insight where appropriate, and gave the reader a sense of what she was feeling at each step of her journey.
A treasure Aug 21, 2009
I am loving this book! I started reading Reflections on God's Holy Land last week and I am absolutely devouring it! I don't want to put it down. I feel myself falling into the beauty of the photographs and captivated by the poetic reflections. This book is inspirational for those of us who have already spent time in the Holy Land as well as those who dream of one day going there.
The pictures transport me right back there as I vividly remember my own visit to the land four years ago. The descriptions of the land and its people are spot on. While reading Eva's descriptions of the land and the personal reflections of her own faith journey, you will feel the sand crunching beneath your feet. You will smell the history, feel the breeze on your face, and taste the gritty air. This land will become "home" to you.
I actually laugh at myself when I do have to close the pages because I find myself hugging the book before I set it down. It truly is a treasure to me - a rememberance, a devotion.
This book is absolutely beautiful.
Vivid Photos, Solid Narrative Jun 7, 2009
Excellent work by a mentor I hold in high esteem. The breathtaking photos and solid narrative bring the Holy Land to life in an amazing way, leaving the reader with a vivid impression of the land flowing with milk and honey.
A spiritual journey to the holiest of lands. May 12, 2009
Blessings come in various forms from a prayer answered to a subtle awareness. The book Reflections of God's Holy Land would be in the latter category. A glossy, pictorial essay suitable to display on the finest coffee table, I thought I would read it in a couple weeks, review it, and donate it to my church. Yet 5 months later, I still hold it in my hands, unwilling to pass it on. You see, I didn't take the subtitle, A Personal Journey Through Israel, seriously. I assumed it was just another pretty travel book with lots of beautiful photos of Israel and directions how to get there. Was I wrong. I started reading Reflections the same way I read any other book; a couple hrs set aside to entertain myself as a reward for other tasks accomplished. Yet after the first dozen pages, I realized this is not a book to be rushed in one sitting if you want to travel the journey with the authors. The concept is simple. Quote a biblical reference. Match it with a photo. Show a two-page spread of historical and architectural details including what it looks like today. And finally, read the Eva's thoughts as she walks the path, touches the stones, and feels the same sun at the same place where it touched Jesus 2,000 years before. Her journey is spiritual. Her words are thought-provoking. I realized then, the best way to view this book is to take each small journey and then rest and reflect. Jesus actually walked this earth, over there, in the Holy Land. And the Bible tells us what and where things happened. But to actually see these places, many of them unchanged over time, is to look at the Bible with `new eyes'. To experience a spiritual awakening to the truths and hardships of this holiest of lands. This is the blessing I received for this book. My Rating: Excellent Value for the money: Excellent
The Adventure That I Will Never Have Mar 1, 2009
This is a truly wonderful book and those who commented on it were right, it does take you to Israel and Eveamarie's comments and reflections in each section do make the whole thing reality. I probably will never see what she saw in person but her writings paint lovely pictures and allow me to be in the land and experience that God created for the Israelites and the many events and places depicted in the Bible.
