Holy Land and Holy Writ (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Holy Land and Holy Writ
There is no originality in this linking together of the Bible and Palestine on our title page. It has been gracefully done by both Thomson and Geikie. In fact it can hardly be avoided; for the book, to be understood, must be illustrated by the habits of the people among whom it was written, and to be beautiful, must be illustrated by the vistas of Palestine's moun tains, plains, and waters; and on the other hand, the land would be a most unprofitable one for the traveler in saddle or in spirit, without its life history and without the halo that Scripture hangs around it.
