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.

Last year I spent several weeks in the Holy Land. The trip became possible suddenly. I had never considered that I might be blessed with a trip like that. It changed my life.

Back home again, I think about it so much that I wonder if it's normal, if I'm normal. Do other people treasure time spent there so much that they think about it every day?

Reflections of God's Holy Land continues to bless me as I read what is personal thoughts of these two lovely women. They are friends, from two different faiths, but with many things in common. I almost feel that I'm intruding at times as I read their very personal thoughts, but that's exactly what I needed. I wanted to know that others went to those spots and tried to drink it all in, knowing that it isn't possible to comprehend the bigness of it all. I wanted to know what others thought when they spent the day in Bethlehem, for example. Were others experiencing the same feelings? I'm so glad that Eva Marie Everson and Miriam Feinberg Vamosh shared their own thoughts and feelings. I almost felt as though they had been on that trip with me and we were quietly chatting later over a cup of coffee. The book has a wonderful spirit about it.

The photographs are exceptionally beautiful. They've made very appropriate selections to accompany the various personal devotionals.

I like to keep this book in my car. When I'm between meetings or stuck in traffic, I have time to review a few pages of 'Reflections' and it brightens my day.

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.

A friend who went with me to the Holy Land recommended this book to me. Having purchased it, I was enthralled by the interesting presentation of this holy land. Each area of Israel was described by two women - one a Christian and the other a Jew! I gleaned much information and spiritual insite from their writings. A must-have for any Christian who has visited Israel!

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.
