This is an interesting and unique daily devotional based on Scriptures from Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The author is a renowned expert in contextualizing the life of Christ in the land of Israel. I am learning so much about the historical significance of Biblical landmarks as I read through this little book. The entries are informative and inspirational as they illustrate important topics in words and pictures. Each day’s reading is longer than a typical devotional but easy enough to digest in one sitting. Taking the time to read the entire Bible passage is vital to getting the most out of the teaching and application sections. The pages are filled with stories about what visiting specific sites in Israel would be like today. Ancient history as experienced by Jesus and his disciples is better understood when explained by one who has actually walked in the same geographical locations and understands the deeper meaning of Biblical truth in context, which is easy to miss by someone like me, who has never traveled there. I am glad I came across this enlightening writing by such a seasoned tour guide and would highly recommend it to anyone desiring a more vivid glimpse of the Lord as he walked in the Holy Land.
