While the title would make you think you were going to read about the land of Israel it is really about the most important part of the Holy Land, it's people. They have endured hardships just because they are Jewish yet Cheryl touches on their secret of survival which is loving God and as commanded by Him loving their fellow man. In this book Christians are given insight into the richness and beauty of the Jewish roots of our faith.
There are surprises in the book , some of which I won't share so as not to spoil it for anyone. You will have an unanswered question which will make you want the sequel to be released soon. And just when you think it has ended Cheryl has added some information for each chapter to help apply some of her insights to your own life and also she shares some of the web sites where we can get more information.
Cheryl Dickow is a fairly new writer who will soon be in the ranks of the best.
In the opening pages of this engrossing story, we meet Elizabeth and depart with her on the journey of a lifetime: her solo trip to Israel. She has dreamed of this pilgrimage for many years, but in the end it appears to be her discontent with her life that drives her to finally embark on her voyage. Beth has given her life to serving others and has come to feel only disappointment and resentment in return for her loving efforts. Her relationship with her husband Luke is strained to the point of near divorce. She feels a growing gulf between herself and her teenage children, the oldest of whom has flown the coop for college. Even her spiritual life seems dry and distant.
Beth looks at her journey to Israel as an opportunity to regain the life she feels she has missed out on in all of her efforts to care for others. "Her ache for what life hadn't yet held was becoming almost unbearable at times." Leaving her children in the care of her very driven and increasingly distant husband, Beth throws herself into her travel. Her desire is not to have the typical tourist experience of the Holy Land. Rather, she arranges for apartment housing in hopes of truly experiencing the traditions of the Jewish people. After having spent years studying the Jewish culture, "Elizabeth wanted to know, up close and personal, what is was like to live as a `chosen one'.Read more ›
