Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus in His Homeland?
A Pilgrimage through Photographs. Feb 27, 2002
It is a magnificent work of photojournalism that takes one through the various places and events in the life of Jesus by way of pictures and text. Starting from the annunciation of the angel to Mary at Nazareth till the ascension of Jesus on the Mount of Olives, the most important places of interest for a pilgrim are well portrayed through seventy full color photographs and the significance of the places today and at the time of Jesus explained by way of the accompanying text. It is designed to be a good pilgrimage without the scrimmage of the actual travel. There are various sites in Holy Land worthy of the attention of a tourist, but this book chooses to focus simply on the places of interest from the point of view of Jesus life and ministry. ...
The author Jacques Potin is a French monk and journalist who has led many groups of pilgrims through the Holy Land and has brought forth a guide for the same purpose. The original French text is translated by Colette Joly Dees who has done a very good job of rendering the English text in the everyday language of the North American people. Whoever has been on a pilgrimage of the Holy Land or wishes to do so, following the footsteps of the Lord, would treasure this lovely book.
