KIRKUS REVIEW

The sure-fire combination of traveler-guide Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, photographer Yousuf Karsh, and narrator H. V. Morton is certain to make This is The Holy Land as successful a book as its predecessor This is Rome. Bishop Sheen travels with his two nephews Jerry and Fulton who, according to their renowned uncle, bring with them the faith necessary to penetrate beneath the surface of the famous Biblical sites to see the meaning of the memorable events of two thousand years ago. Mr. Morton not only describes the actual scenes of Christ's life and death, but supplies excellent historical background material. Mr. Karsh's superb photographs add still another dimension. Coming as it does during the Lenten season when Christians re-live the life of Christ this is indeed a most timely volume.
