Travel guides about journeying to the Holy Land are a dime a dozen. I have read many of them. But the newly revised and updated edition of The Christian Traveler's Guide to the Holy Land represents the best general volume for the Evangelical.

I have recommended this book to many people, and I know of a number of ministries that regularly go to Israel who distribute this volume to each traveler. Written by veteran Israel travelers, Charles H. Dyer and Greg A. Hatteberg, this volume will enable you to:

* Gain a general overview of all the major sites of Israel with a brief introduction for each site, including primary scripture passages, maps, charts, and photos.
* Know what to do with regard to practical needs such as packing, safety, weather, and photography.
* Get the skinny on what to see, where to go, and what not to miss.

The authors have extensively revised the first part of the book on "Preparing for the Trip," updating all the content--from applying for a passport, to using online resources, to traveling to Israel for the mobility impaired. Parts 3-6 of the book offers a similar overview of key sites in Egypt, Greece, Jordan, and Turkey.

Unique to this guidebook--I've never seen it anywhere else--are sections outlining a 4-week schedule for Bible reading, prayer, and Bible study.

Whether you're looking for a book for yourself or one to recommend to someone else traveling to the Holy Land, The Christian Traveler's Guide to the Holy Land will serve you well.

I have taken groups in the past to the Holy Lands and have used the book. With the new edition, I am again using it with my group. It is easy to read, spot on in accuracy, Biblically well grounded. In short, a perfect travelers companion.

Format: Paperback
Some day I hope to see the Holy Land. I don't wish to wait until the Lord returns but hope to experience it on this side of eternity. This book is the right kind of resource for such a trip.

It is a unique book that will aid one's trip to Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Turkey and even Greece. Travel safety guidelines are included, from the obvious preparations for tightened airport security in the region to easing one's mind to the odds of a terrorist attack on you and your group while in the region.

Tips for travelers on what to wear, aided by a temperature and climate guide for key months of travel can be found in its pages. These are specified to each place/country of interest. Added to these are advice on overcoming jet lag and a guide for the mobile-impaired.

If the reader hasn't yet obtained a U.S. passport, there is guidance provided. The volume tells where to get one, whether in person or even online. The steps in the process are given, including what is needed to verify one's identity.

Something unexpected in this travel guide is a biblical background study. There is a four week suggested Bible reading program and prayer guide. A supplemental study seeks to prepare travelers spiritually for the trip.

The book has historical data on places and times. For example, for Egypt, there's a section on the gods of Egypt. For Turkey, there is a guide to Asia Minor's history.

Helpful charts, pictures and maps review Israel's history, the allocation of the 12 tribes in the land, the Herods of the Bible and a comparison of biblical periods with their correlating archaeological periods. For example, the Patriarchal Period is identified as the Middle Bronze Age. The United Kingdom is correlated to the Iron Age.

There are many reasons why books get re-published or revised. Whether it is demand related, or updating required, books that are constantly relevant will always be sought after. This is one such book. As interest in Israel and the Middle East increases, and as more people travel to the Holy Land, whether tourists or pilgrims, people go to sandy deserts, ancient monuments, and massive landscapes for a reason: to know the history and to have personally encountered how the people of old lived in that valuable estate often referred to in the Bible. For many, a visit there is a life changing experience. While some information can be shared by tour guides and experts on the way, it is always a valuable resource to have a book that gives us an A-to-Z synopsis of what to see and what to expect. For touring the Holy Land is not like touring manmade theme parks or massive nature parks. It requires preparation. It demands physical walks and exercises. It needs a planned itinerary. In some cases, groups of believers would depend on some seminary professor or an experienced Bible teacher to guide them through the terrains. This book supplements such trips, and in some cases, can be a self-help guide for the independent traveler.

Written with the traveler in mind, Dyer and Hatteberg, both seminarians at Moody Bible Institute and Dallas Theological Seminary respectively compile their knowledge and expertise into a handy guide. One of their key concerns is how many travelers mix up modern expectations when they traverse the land full of ancient history. Thus, they take time to explain the contexts, to give some safety tips as well as packing details, getting visas (mainly for US citizens), things to pack and not to pack, as well as reference links to various sites of interest.
