Overview

Sacred Sites explores the history and archaeology of authentic and significant biblical locations in the context of sound scriptural and theological scholarship. Intended as much for the armchair traveler as for visitors to the Holy Land, its unique gift is to bring the scriptural passages to life. Rather than simply referring the reader to Biblical chapter and verse, Patterson provides the full scriptural text with a matching visual. For those who have already visited the area, this book can help them relive the experience of a lifetime. For others it can serve as a vicarious pilgrimage.
