4. Holy Land Handbook

Holy Land Handbook: History, Geography, Culture, Holy Sites. George W. Knight. 2020. 288 pages. [Source: Review copy] [Christian Nonfiction; Reference; Travel Guide]

First sentence: This book is for anyone who has ever wanted to know more about the Holy Land—its geography, culture, history, and especially its holy sites. Travelers who want to get the most out of their visit to this unique land should find it a useful guide. But it is also meant for armchair travelers, Bible students, and the downright curious who wonder about the ancient land God promised to Abraham and his descendants.

What you see is what you get. Sometimes that is exactly what you WANT in a book. The book is informative, concise, conversational. I was worried that it would be dry and dull. That the narrative would be practically nonexistent and that it would be a sluggish read. I was wrong. It was actually quite pleasant. I'd definitely recommend it for those interested in learning more about the culture and geography especially. It was definitely well-organized.
