An unexpected twist for this reviewer while reading this little book came when the author revealed her mother’s fear of heights so overwhelmed her for most of her life. This very real fear so gripped this lady that she decided not to take the part of the tour that included the gondola ride to plateau where Masada is situated. The real twist came however in how much changed for her by the time the journey was coming to an end. God may indeed intervene with His healing in the most wonderful ways.
Readers would be wise to not overlook this little book. While it may be considered as a brief travelogue of the Holy Land it is also an emotional treasure of personal reflections of how this land can impact one’s life. If readers know of anyone planning on taking a trip to the Holy Land then make sure to give them a copy of Kimberley Payne’s My Journey to the Holy Land. It is a great preview to help their excitement mount as to what lies ahead.
The photos and descriptions of the places visited did, indeed, remind me of my own journey to the Holy Land. Some of the thoughts Kimberly described echoed my thoughts.
The photos in the journal show the stunning landscape of the country. They draw one into the written pages.
The first devotional, How is God Like a Cafeteria Tray, was though-provoking and insightful – a foretaste of what was to come. The other devotionals showed the same attributes.
The devotional entitled The Bible as a History Book is an example of how the Bible fits history. Kimberley alludes to King Jereboam building and placing the two golden calves and setting them up in Bethel and Dan. The archeological dig in Dan showed evidence of a large altar and worship centre and added weight to her point of God being a God of history.
All in all, I found this to be an interesting work. While not intended as an in-depth devotional, Kimberley does provoke thought with her musings.
Although it seems to be geared for younger Christians anyone can enjoy the photos and commentaries. They give one a bit of a sense of how exciting a trip to the Holy Land is.
Kimberley included the story of her mother's healing from the fear of heights. That meant a lot to me because I too struggled with the trip to the top of Masada. I liked this book and I think you will too. Kimberley even included a Youtube site where you can go to view more pictures. Brenda J Wood, http://heartfeltdevotionals.com
