About the book
Michael Kelly has led more than a dozen pilgrimages to the Holy Land. In this unique guidebook, he will take readers to the sites associated with the earthly life of Christ from Bethlehem to Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee to Jerusalem.

Whether you are planning a trip to walk in the footsteps of Jesus, or simply want to deepen your understanding of faith this guide is indispensable. Along with enhancing readers’ appreciation for the Holy Land, the Gospel will come alive with vivid descriptions of the famous sites. As well as locations, there are chapters dedicated to the culture, food, wine and people that make up the fascinating mix that is the Holy Land today some 2,000 years after Christ walked the land.

The detailed maps will appeal to travellers to the region and also serve as an enchanting insight for armchair pilgrims with an interest in the area.
