A scholarly review of Israel's archaeology 26 mars 2010
Par SHORETALK - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
It is important that any potential reader understand that this is a scholarly examination of the archaeological treasures of Israel. If you want a tourist guide this isn't it.

I was hoping for light reading about Israel when I ordered the book but as I travelled around Israel I found the book to be a good companion to me. It is a book that I will keep on my ministerial bookshelf as a resource!

Superb. 24 novembre 2013

This book was superb. Written by a top-notch Scripture scholar, and an archaeologist to boot. It sifts the probable from the likely from the possible, which means that when Murphy-O'Connor pronounces a site or a building authentic, you sit up and take notice. Next to the Bible, this was my bible in the Holy Land. I've recommended it to many people.

Excellent resource 1 novembre 2009
Par Sandra Glahn - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I asked an Old Testament scholar which guide he recommended for people visiting Israel, and this was his pick. So a seminary-grad friend and I each bought copies. We kept it with us everywhere we went and found it a most useful resource. It includes both historical backgrounds and summaries of all the major attractions. But don't look for it to include places such as Yad Vashem (Holocaust Museum), even though that's the second most popular tourist site after the Western Wall in Jerusalem. This is an archaeological guide. It includes museums with collections relating to archaeology, but it is not intended to be a tourist's guide to every place in the Holy Land.

A great deal of information, but not without bias 19 octobre 2009
Par Diogenes - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
For sheer quantity of information, this book is unequaled. It also covers many places that are skipped over by most other guidebooks. But even with regard to the book's greatest virtue, its inclusiveness, a serious problem must be addressed, and this is the book's bias toward Latin sites, often to the exclusion of Byzantine sites. Some background may help contextualize this problem for those visiting the area for the first time. The Eastern Church has been present in the Holy Land from the beginning, and its oral and written traditions have been carefully passed down from one generation to another, through adversities of all kinds. The Latin Church, in comparison, is a relative newcomer, arriving "in force" only during the Crusades. Of course, human nature being what it is, the Crusaders, and the Franciscans after them, wanted their own holy sites and their own narratives. So a pilgrim to the Holy Land will often find parallel worlds, one Byzantine, and usually older, and one Latin, and usually more recent. And sometimes there are even specifically Protestant locations as well, such as the so-called "Garden Tomb" outside the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem, that gained celebrity in the nineteenth century due to its promotion by General Charles Gordon. Unfortunately, Fr O'Connor sometimes ignores the Byzantine sites and narratives, or else gives them a dismissive line or two, while going on at great length about the Roman Catholic ones. Perhaps the most grievous of these omissions is St Gabriel's (Orthodox) Church in Nazareth, built over the spring (and site of the original well, before the nearby, Ottoman-built "Well of Mary" was constructed) from which the Virgin Mary would have drawn water, and where ancient sources consistently locate the Annunciation. Both of these (the Church and the well, not to mention a fine museum nearby) are omitted entirely from the book, in favor of the enormous (Catholic) Basilica of the Annunciation, which gets several pages. Nor will Protestants who take seriously the Garden Tomb as the location for the resurrection be pleased with the condescending treatment accorded it. A more practical problem concerns the size and weight of the book itself. It is too large to fit into even a large jacket pocket and too heavy to want to carry anyway, so its usefulness is limited by its format. The excellent "Blue Guide to Israel and the Palestinian Territories" avoids all of these drawbacks, although it appears to be out of print. Despite all these reservations, however, serious students of this wonderful part of the world will probably want to have access to this book.

An excellent, if biased, archaeological guide 10 février 2013
Par whositwhatsit - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is a superbly detailed archaeological guide to the Holy Land. I used it on a recent winter trip to Israel (for the first time) because it was recommended to me by a professor as the best guide for the kind of archaeological/historical trip that I wanted to undertake. Occasionally, the author waxes lyrical (he's a Catholic priest, after all) about the land and landscape in a way that non-Christians may find uncomfortable or endearing (or perhaps both).

I found it useful to purchase this as a Kindle edition, and to supplement it with the Lonely Planet's excellent guide to Israel and the beautifully illustrated archaeological guide by Fabio Bourbon and Enrico Lavagno. Of these, Murphy-O'Connor and the Lonely Planet are the most indispensable for those planning a visit focused on Israel's archaeological sites. A caveat to the traveller-buyer: none of these guides notes that you can purchase a "visit all the archaeological sites owned by the State of Israel" ticket for something like 100-120 shekels (so, basically, if you're going to be visiting at least 6 sites, you'll save money by getting the omni-card); and some of the opening times listed in the Lonely Planet and/or Murphy-O'Connor are not accurate--when in doubt, call ahead.
