Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Seeing the need to fill a niche in the travel guide genre, general editor Hexham (religious studies, Univ. of Calgary) has created a series of guides designed to appeal to Christians. These guides do not lead tourists to the most popular bars or shopping districts but instead to the various Christian heritage sites in each country. Hexham's theory is that since there are travel guides geared toward other sociological groups (gays, singles, retirees), the market is also there to reach out to Christians who wish to explore the roots of their religion. His vast knowledge of history and religion makes these well-researched books a treasure trove of historical information. Each guide follows the same layout: Hexham begins with an overview of the history of each country from prehistoric times to the present. He then includes a chapter on literature, art, and architecture and lists what he considers the top ten Christian heritage sites in each country. Each entry thereafter is in alphabetical order by place name and includes some background information, specific sites to visit, and biographies of significant people associated with the site. In Great Britain, visit the birthplace of the Scottish Reformation in Edinburgh; in France, learn the difference between a Gothic-style cathedral (Notre Dame) and a Romanesque-style cathedral (St. tienne Cathedral); in Germany, follow the progress and fall of the Holy Roman Empire by visiting Aachen; and in Italy, visit the ancient Roman ruins and learn their part in the history of Christianity, then visit the Vatican City, the seat of the Catholic Church. There is also a useful web site associated with the series (www.christian-travelers-guides.com), which gives further information on Christian travel agents, hotels, and more. Recommended for all public libraries. Sandy Knowles, Henderson Cty. P.L., NC

From the Back Cover

The Christian Travelers Guides deal directly with what even the best general travel guides only touch on: Christianity’s enormous influence on Europe--and, through its history and culture, Europe’s influence on Christianity.

This unique series guides you on a pilgrimage to the heart of our Christian heritage. Saints and secularists, martyrs and kings, castles and cathedrals, public squares and rolling hillsides, great works of art, literature, and architecture: The legacy of the Christian faith takes on immediacy and impact as you see firsthand the places where believers through the centuries lived and died, shaping our world with their faith.

In rich detail and depth, The Christian Travelers Guide to Italy describes the history, literature, music, art, and architecture of Italy.

This travel guide has NO pictures, and is poorly organized. It is hard to get much out of a travel guide that is as bland and boring as this. Save your money...

We are planning a tour in fall of 2014 and with some free time hope to visit some of the places we found in this guide. This will be my third time to Italy - and there is great info in this little guide that I had not learned before.
