IF WALLS COULD TALK. . .
The churches of Jerusalem, whether ancient or contemporary, are steeped in that very special aura which surrounds the Holy City. Now, with the publication of Beyond the Walls: Churches of Jerusalem, you can unravel the mysteries which lie underneath each magnificent – or modest – facade. In Beyond the Walls: Churches of Jerusalem, former Jerusalem Post correspondent Aviva Bar-Am offers in-depth narratives, stirring legends, and lively anecdotes which bring 30 of the Holy City’s historic churches to life.
Among the sanctuaries and sites vividly described in Beyond the Walls: Churches of Jerusalem are the Church of the Holy Sepulcher (including a step-by-step walk-through guide), St. James’ Cathedral, the Church of St. John the Baptist in Ein Kerem (and the Church of St. John the Baptist in the Old City of Jerusalem), the Basilica of the Agony at Gethsemane, and Dominus Flevit. The author, Aviva Bar-Am, also introduces the reader to the Ethiopian Church, the Church of the Visitation, Ecce Homo Basilica, St. Andrew’s Church, Mary’s Tomb (the Church of the Assumption), the Church of St. Mary Magdalene, the Church of the Flagellation, the Church of St. Alexander Nevsky, and more!
Beyond the Walls: Churches of Jerusalem is the perfect gift for pilgrims planning to visit the Holy Land, and is a wonderful guidebook and souvenir. Even if you can’t make the journey, this wonderful text, with its beautiful, full-color photographs, makes an invaluable addition to any home library, and for the armchair traveler and historian.
