A popular pastor, poet, and educator at the turn of the 20th century, Henry Van Dyke journeyed to Palestine and returned with a renewed vision of and devotion to Christianity. An appreciator of nature from earliest childhood, he brings a unique perspective to this storied land, offering "impressions of travel in body and spirit" that continue to inspire pilgrims and secular tourists alike.
From the imposing immensity of the solitary, regal plateau of Judea to the close intimacy of the narrow, steep, slippery streets of Jerusalem, this 1908 book is like no other you'll find about the Holy Land, one that finds new faith and fresh wisdom in old land and ancient sky.
Also available from Cosimo Classics: Van Dyke's The Spirit of America and The Spirit of Christmas
