About the Author:

James R. McCormick, an ecumenical leader and a trial court judge, was inspired to write this book after his first visit to the Holy Land as "just another tourist." Subsequent visits and his investigative skills and experience as a veteran traveler enabled him to gather everything a pilgrim needs for a life-changing experience. McCormick resides in Traverse City, Michigan, with his wife Marilyn; they have three adult children.

Review:

Having made a number of trips to Israel, James McCormick's goal is to motivate Christians of all denominations to make a pilgrimage to the "Holy Land." He offers sincere spiritual guidance to be done in advance of a journey to Israel, including scriptural preparation, pointers to videotapes, and hymnal selection. Photos enliven the work. An ecumenical leader and trial court judge in Michigan, McCormick asserts correctly that travel to Israel is enhanced by a basic understanding of the contours of religious and political history that have shaped this land of especial and long-standing importance to Jews, Muslims, and Christians of all branches and denominations. Embedded deeply within one Christian perspective, Jerusalem and the Holy Land traces with extremely broad brush strokes a subset of the salient elements of the collective history of the peoples of Israel. Readers might also consult John Bright's seminal work, A History of Israel 3rd ed. (Philadelphia: Westminster Press, 1981). Unfortunately, in a presentation purported to be ecumenical, McCormick uses terminology such as "Old Testament" and "BC" - both of which are not sensitive to the Rabbinic Jewish tradition. Although he briefly discusses Jewish and Islamic pilgrimage traditions, the author does not mention that for 600 years during the period of the Second Temple (583 BCE - 70 CE), Jerusalem flourished as a center of pilgrimages of the Jewish people. A famous psalm that begins, "If I forget thee O Jerusalem," references the enduring and extraordinarily poignant feelings that Jews have always held toward that special place. The giblah, or direction of prayer for Muslim worshipers, was initially toward Jerusalem also, not Mecca as it came to be. -- From Independent Publisher

Jerusalem And The Holy Land introduces the readers to the land of the Bible, its history and its people, while providing invaluable information on traditional pilgrimage sites. Knowing what to expect in the Holy Land will help all the visitor get the most out of his or her journey. Jerusalem And The Holy Land is written from a broadly Christian perspective covering everything a pilgrim should know before undertaking the journey including Holy Land history, chronologies and maps, pilgrimage traditions, Calvary and the Sepulcher, meeting native Christians, Jewish and Muslim life, promoting peace in the Holy Land, and even how to go about choosing a tour group that is right for them. Jerusalem And The Holy Land is not only an indispensable trip planner, it is engaging and informative reading for all "armchair" travelers as well. -- Midwest Book Review
