This lively but always scholarly book forms a tour of 14 ancient cities, from Nineveh and Babylon to Alexandria and Rome, which played a significant role in the ‘construction’ of the Bible. Blending archaeology, biblical history and accounts of his own travels in the Holy Land, the author identifies how some of the locations connect with Bible stories, and explains how others contributed to the long process of selection, translation and compilation behind the texts we know today. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
