JERUSALEM: A History of the Holiest City as Seen Through the Struggles Christians, of Jews, Christians and Muslims
By Thomas A. Idinopulos
This majestic history of Jerusalem is the first to bring together in a single volume the experiences of the three great religions in the holy city from their ancient beginnings to the present. It is history in the grand manner, an absorbing saga of prophets, priests, and pilgrims, kings and conquerors; the story of a city besieged, defended, conquered, damaged or destroyed, and rebuilt forty times in thirty centuries―always in the name of God. Mr. Idinopulos's narrative is as rich, intricate, and spectacular as a religious tapestry.
