Can't Travel to the Holy Land? This Devotional Will Take You There Spiritually
In his unique site-to-site devotional guide, Devotional Treasures from the Holy Land, Dr. DeLancey--drawing on a year of study in Jerusalem and two decades of experience in leading tours to Israel, Jordan, and Egypt--guides the reader through 68 ancient sites including both common and lesser-known locations. For each site, DeLancey offers a remarkable blend of historical, geographical, and Scriptural information. He begins by updating the reader on archaeological excavations and interpreting the authenticity of the discoveries at each spot. He then follows with sound devotional thoughts that can be gleaned from each place mentioned.
His descriptions cause Bible stories to spring to life as he gives thoughtfully informed analyses shared based on years of careful research and of interaction with the Holy Land. Devotional Treasures from the Holy Land forms an invaluable help to those on tour in Bible lands as well as those who can experience them only from their armchairs at home.
