Overview

Far beyond just providing information related to geography and Bible interpretation, Where Jesus Walked encourages pilgrims to interact with the Bible's messages in ways that will lead to new spiritual challenges and growth. Author R. Wayne Stacy, who leads annual tours of the Holy Land and is an expert in the field of Holy Land geography, uses the geography of revelation to provide important insights for understanding the meaning of Scripture, particularly the messages of Christ.

Enhanced by breathtaking photography, each chapter introduces readers to a place that figures prominently in Jesus' life, including the sacred landmarks of Galilee, Bethlehem, and Jerusalem. A description of the geography, topography, history, and archaeology of the site is followed by a new translation of a scripture passage depicting that particular event in Jesus' life. Each chapter ends with a brief meditation. Where Jesus Walked is an ideal devotional for anyone planning a trip -- both real and virtual -- to the Holy Land.
