This book is a Christian classic, well worth the read of any serious scholar of the Bible, or for anyone who has an interest in reading the adventures of what it was like to travel as an explorer through the land of Israel in the 1800s when robbers and murderers abounded as well as ferocious animals. As I read when investigating this book it is quote - Lavishly illustrated with more than two hundred depictions of archaeological sites, artifacts and inscriptions, Near Eastern flora and fauna, as well as images and descriptions of indigenous cultural manners and customs. Its style is simple, straightforward, and compelling, and the work is organized as a kind of narrated travelogue or journal, with intermixed devotional reflections, archaeological insight, and ethnographic notes. - end quote.
