"This is a unique book written by world authorities on the history and culture of Ethiopia. The photographs bring the sites to life and capture the hearts of us all. I was in awe as I laid eyes on the rock-carved churches of Lalibela, and I was even more impressed by King Lalibela's vision in creating a New Jerusalem . . . truly a vision of a great king. The inspiring photographs and descriptions of the churches bring to light the simplicity, veneration, and godliness of these places. This is a call for readers to go visit Ethiopia, and it will surely make this country one of the top religious tourism destinations in the world."--Zahi Hawass, UN ambassador for Global Cultural Heritage

This book (the word "book" doesn't do it justice, as it is sooo large) is absolutely beautiful! Page after page of amazing photographs, as well as nice descriptions of ancient churches they depict.
It is worth every penny!
