If I never get to go to Israel, I am a little more ok with it now that I have read this book because well, I feel like I have been there now!

When I ordered a copy of Reflections on God's Holy Land: A Personal Journey Through Israel, I didn't imagine the treasure I would receive.

I've never been blessed by a trip to Israel, of walking where Jesus walked, of seeing places spoken of in the Bible with my own eyes. But here is a book that has given me glimpses into the holy land. Written by a Jew and a Christian, each location covered by the book has a related Scripture followed by two pages of "landscape and lore" which are authored by Miriam Feinberg Vamosh and called "Did You Know?" and then two pages of a a more personal nature authored by Eva Marie Everson and called "Reflections."

In truth, the entire book is one you will want to reflect upon. It is filled with beautiful writing and wonderful photographs. I recommend making it part of your daily devotions and allowing God to speak to you through its pages.

Wonderfully done. Incredible images. Poetic prose.

This is not a book that you will pick up once to look at just the pictures. Soak up Miriam's knowledge. Feel Eva Marie's joy, longing, and elation. No, this is a book that you will pick up over and over and over.

And you will be changed each time. A yearning will begin to stir in you, a yearning to draw closer to God.

Fall into this book and experience God's Holy Land like never before.

I was amazed, opening and flipping through, at how beautiful this book is. The photos and layout are just gorgeous. Digging a little deeper, I was pleased that the book isn't just a history or a Scripture lesson. Finding the history of Israel, written scriptures, personal accounts of Eva Marie's time spent there, married with beautiful photography by Ms. Feinberg Vamosh - what a feast!

This is my new coffee table book, to be picked up and read a bit at a time, when I need a cold, refreshing drink for my soul.

REFLECTIONS OF GOD'HOLY LAND: A JOURNEY THROUGH ISRAEL...I received my copy in the mail yesterday and started my tour last night... Could not stop travelling. Just a wonderful experience...the combination of knowledge and emotion is exactly right. I will be back with more about my trip in a few days, but just had to make a comment today.

My TRIP IS FINISHEDReflections of God's Holy Land (A personal journey through Israel) is exactly what the title describes-a personal reflection. Eva Marie Everson, a Christian, and Miriam Vamosh, a Jew, combine their personal knowledge and emotions to produce a personal experience for their reader.
As one opens the cover, the photography leaps from the page to engulf the reader in the time and place of each Biblical location. Beautiful colored photographs draw one to the printed pages of both authors. Vamosh, with her, Jewish heritage and her experience as a tour guide for Christian pilgrimages educates the reader in the Did You Know? section, and Eva Marie lets us fall with her into the emotional journey of visiting the Holy Land.

Scripture references for each site visited give added knowledge and realism to the journey through Israel. These verses gave the added personal touch for my journey with Everson and Vamosh. My knowledge of Old Testament history is somewhat limited, and the clear, concise vignettes provided by Miriam are explicit. Her description of the Elah Valley and the history which is hidden in this valley gave me new insight about this area. "Elah was literally the `wild west' and saw more drama than any Hollywood western could ever dream of." And then she portrays the dramatic stories of Joshua, the Jewish exile, and of course the well-known battle of David and the Philistine giant.

Format: Hardcover
Reflections of God's Holy Land by Eva Marie Everson and Miriam Feinberg Vamosh arrived on a day when my children were visiting. I handed the volume over to them and watched while my son and future daughter-in-law both stuck their noses in it. I asked them questions. My son told me that I had not received just a book with a lot of beautiful pictures. He was excited about the different sections of each chapter.
When my turn came to read through the scripture and facts and reflections of Everson and Vamosh's wonderful collaboration, I realize that I can only take a step now on a path of a treasury of experience that will have many layers as I return continually to match scripture and location and facts to the various studies I participate in. From the moment Everson put her hand on the smoky rock wall that might have been soot from Joshua's fire, I could feel the depth of emotion that led Everson to share her faith journey.
As a now and again fan of Biblical Archaeology Review magazine, and a collector of books about life in the Holy Land, I was familiar only vicariously with the sites visited. Most appreciatively, the author knows that scripture must not be used as a dichotomous revelation of God--that the word of God to the people of the Old Testament complements what he reveals in the New Testament. Each place visited by the American author was matched to references in both parts of the Bible. Modern and ancient scenes mingle. Hymns, legends and facts are interspersed. Fancy letters opening the different segments of the chapters are an elegant touch. An illuminating touch.
There is something for everyone in Reflections.
