Visions of the Holy Land
William Lee Goff
A naive young Presbyterian minister goes on his first trip to the Holy Land to learn about its past. To his great surprise, he also discovers its amazing future.
The narrator of the story, Bill DeQuill, uses his study leave to explore Jerusalem and travel to Bethlehem, Hebron, Galilee, the Dead Sea and Jordan. He meets both Palestinians and Zionists and who tell him their compelling, but very different narratives.
This is a story of discovery and reflection, of ancient history and current events, of violence and peace, of despair and hope. It reveals an exciting new way to see the Holy Land.
