avid traveler  Oct 15, 2008
This is an excellent book....easy to read....wonderfully written. I had just gotten back from a trip to Israel and purchased this book upon my return. This book makes the land of Israel come alive for the person who has had the privilege of traveling to this amazing area and would be a true source of help to someone just wanting to know more about the land. I feel truly blessed that Mr. Beck has used the gifts that God has given him to write such a helpful, fun, interesting, hard to put down book.
