About the Author

Henry Vollam Morton was born in 1892 near Manchester, England. He became an international celebrity by scooping the world's press in the sensational discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb in the early 1920s. His newfound fame subsequently led to a series of extraordinarily popular vignettes on English city and country life, which went on to sell millions of copies worldwide. He died in South Africa in 1979 at the age of eighty-six.

I coincidently heard about Morton from 2 sources at the same time; the wonderful Israeli historian Amos Elon is full of praise for Morton, and an orthodox catholic mate of mine thought I'd like him, so I checked him out...
I read 'Through Lands of the Bible' first and couldn't put it down. Great stuff, it demonstrated Morton's emminently readable style, and was packed with as much humour as piety. I could not wait to read In the Steps of St. Paul and liked it almost as much. 'Almost' because the... theme that ran through got a little too heavy towards the end, and I'm always suspicious of Christians who hate - even if you do blame 'the Jews' for killing Jesus, wouldn't Jesus expect you to forgive?
Anyway, if you're an anti-semite, that shouldn't be a problem, and if you're a [Jewish] with thick skin (like Elon I presume) give it a go...

H.V. Morton is the gold standard of travel writers. In The Steps of St. Paul is one of his masterpieces. Morton wrote the book in 1936, but it is still relevant today because Morton integrates ancient history with the stories of the Bible into a single travelogue. If you're planning on traveling to this part of the world, I recommend this book as a very readable primer on the history that will keep you interested for hours. Unlike contemporary travel writers, Morton doesn't linger on the services of a particular hotel or a which restaurant offers the best lunch. Morton goes in deep, always maintaining his English perspective but never losing sight of the big picture, which is the drama of these locations and the history integrated into them. He travels to the same places and sometimes in the same methods as Saint Paul, drawing intimate portraits of the local life, salting in a good amount of history, and drawing upon original ancient sources to bolster his narratives. The book is easy to pick up and put down because each chapter is broken up into a series of articles on a particular subject. I only wish travel writers today would follow Morton's example by skipping the fluff and getting to the heart of a place. See my video review for a few more details. An HD version of the video is available on my YouTube channel, lenswork4.

This book is so interesting. Written by a historian that must love the Lord. The detail of the sites and countries almost made me want to go there myself. Written a long time ago he was able to get into countries that are restricted to us now. So to read about the sites what they look like now and back then in Biblical times is a pleasure. I use this book to help me prepare for Bible study. I am very happy to have it in my Christian library.
