Book Description: This book takes stock of the relevance of Israel for Christians in the new millennium and provides an informed view of the Holy Land for those visiting--especially those without a spiritual tradition of pilgrimage. Walking in His Steps will help Christians wrestle with the theological and spiritual issues which a visit to the Holy Land raises: Are these really 'holy' places? Can we learn from the 'Desert Fathers'? What are God's purposes for this modern land and for the Jews? As these issues are particularly keenly felt in the UK, the USA and Australasia, an international audience will appreciate the book's content as it covers the history of the Holy Land from the early Church onwards; the traditions of the Desert Fathers, meditation and spirituality; Prophetic issues of Israel and Palestine; the role of an Evangelical witness to Christ in the Land of the Bible; and issues of mission in the Middle East. The book is informative, reflective and theologically backed. It includes an Appendix with food for thought in some particular locations: the Mount of Olives, Bethlehem, the Judean Desert, Golgotha, Galilee and Mount Tabor.
