I purchased several DVD's on Jerusalem and Israel and this was by far the best one. It gave a good overview of Jerusalem and its three major religions. It covered the entire history of the city and its significant sites. I would highly recommend this one. I purchased this as a pre-trip source of information and it gave me great background knowledge. It was totally worth the time to watch. Buy this one and skip all the others...

This DVD provides extensive coverage of the history of Jerusalem, including the relationship of the city with Jews, Christians, and Muslims. It seems appropriate for those of any faith. There is a wide range of material included and it has been thoughtfully put together.

The material is more informational than you would find in a travel video. I'll have to say that there is so much included that I will have to watch it more than once to absorb even a fraction of what is there. I found that it required more focus than I was able to give it as I watched the first time, because I was tired. This one needs more attention than just a casual viewing, in my opinion.

An extremely well done documentary that relates the World's 3 great religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam to Jerusalem. Numerous key figures in the history of these religions and Jerusalem's history are examined in sufficient detail to provide a rich understanding of the people, places and beliefs covered. Very up-to-date coverage, great photography and dialogue. Very educational and insightful. By far the best video coverage of this subject I have ever seen- A "10" on a scale of 1 to 10!

This documentary is great as an introduction to the diverse history of Jerusalem. It is balanced almost to a fault, presenting the Jewish, Christian and Muslim histories in that order, as if they were separate episodes. If you already have a basic understanding of Jerusalem's history, there won't be much new for you here.
Ray Suarez's enthusiastic and measured presentation prevents this from being completely didactic, which it tends to be.
This documentary barely covers recent history but with its release date being 2009, that probably doesn't matter anyway; it would be dated in any case.

I found this video to be very informative about Jerusalem and its relationship to the world. It helped to clarify my understanding of why Judiasm, Christianity and Islam all consider Jerusalem to be important to their respective religions. I will be rewatching this video from time to time because it is so packed full of important information I could not absorb it all at one time. If you are trying to understand what is happening in Jerusalem today this video helps to put it into the perspective of Jerusalem's history.

I wish that I had watched this before going to Israel; or better still,taken a portable DVD and watched it while I was there. The film gave flesh to an unbelievable experience and filled in so much more. When I go back again, I'll watch it before AND during the trip. I'm sure that the folks on the bus would like to see it also.

As a high school teacher of 15 years, I can say this is the best dvd for my high school (also AP World History) students to learn about the roots of Jerusalem and how it relates to today's issues.
