Barbour Publishing Inc

Paper Back Book


Visit the Holy Land,
wherever you might be!

The Holy Land Handbook is a beautifully illustrated guide to the history, culture, geography, and key sites of the Bible. This “readable reference” transports you to the land where Abraham, David, and Jesus lived, explaining the what, when, where, and why of their stories—and many, many more.

The Holy Land Handbook provides details on the history, setting, and importance of more than 130 key locales, including
  • The Dead Sea
  • Bethlehem
  • The Jordan River
  • Capernaum
  • The Jezreel Valley
  • And many more

The Holy Land Handbook also covers the all-important city of Jerusalem with individual entries on spots such as
  • The Western Wall
  • The Pool of Bethesda
  • The Upper Room
  • Gordon’s Calvary
  • Church of the Holy Sepulchre

Fully illustrated in color, with helpful maps and intriguing sidebars, The Holy Land Handbook is great prep for those visiting the Middle East—and an equally great read for “armchair travelers” who want to better understand the Bible story.
