Synopsis: A compelling combination of breathtaking photographs and the history, archaeology, and religion of Jerusalem celebrates the extraordinary inhabitants, landmarks, and cultural diversity of this holy city.

From School Library Journal: Grade 5 Up-The photos dominating Wolf's book are crisp, detailed, and revealing. Portraits and architecture, long shots and close-ups, pale buff and bright with color, they satisfy the senses and stimulate viewers' curiosity. Alas, the text too often fails to address the questions they raise. There are no real captions or locations listed at the back. Shots of a model of Herod's city, identified in a single sentence in a dense double-column of small type on the preceding page, look like full-scale pictures of surviving sites. Even when the narrative corresponds more closely to nearby photos, confusing writing can obscure the point. There are some annoying grammatical quirks (the many split infinitives), but other phrasing is seriously misleading. The sentence, "Ten of the tribes who settled in the north called this land Israel" clearly implies that there were more than 10 northern tribes. The author leaps from British rule in 1917 to the 1967 war with no mention of Israel's independence; Joseph "led the Hebrews into Egypt," implies that the whole nation rather than a small percentage was exiled; and so on. The book's layout is elegant but not accessible: it is difficult to extract information without close attention to the tightly spaced print. What a pity that such beautiful pictures did not elicit more exacting information. As it is, the usefulness of this book is severely diminished by its inadequate text, absence of maps, and omission of bibliography.
