Promised Landby Gordon Wetmore, Leon Uris (Foreword by)
This rich volume celebrates the uniqueness of a country whose history is inseparable from its spiritual heritage. In anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the founding of Israel in 1998, this portrait of a timeless land and its people reveals as never before the character of Israel, past, present, and future. With an inspired text by Abba Eban, an updated foreword by Leon Uris, and 82 beautiful watercolors and 35 pencil sketches by Gordon Wetmore, this volume is a work of art as well as a testimony of faith. Visit the promised land through breathtaking images of the Sea of Galilee and its fishermen, Abraham's Tomb, the Church of the Last Supper, the Jordan River, the city of Jerusalem, and Israeli children at play. The passionate reflections of His Excellency Abba Eban, Israel's former foreign minister, complete the reader's experience of this land's mosaic of faith, humanity, and hope.
