The New Jerusalem by G. K. Chesterton

In 1919, the famous British pundit and polymath traveled to Palestine to write this philosophical travelogue. He fell in love with Jerusalem, and in the book is quite accepting of the religious and cultural values of the people inhabiting the area. Throughout these controversial passages, he explores the differences between the three major religions. Even more interesting is his analysis of conflicts between Jews and Muslims, which is now considered prophetic.

Among his most notable books are The Man Who Was Thursday, a metaphysical thriller, and The Everlasting Man, a history of humankind's spiritual progress. After Chesterton converted to Catholicism in 1922, he wrote mainly on religious topics such as Orthodoxy and Heretics.
