Jerusalem, City of Longing
by Simon Goldhill
- 368 PAGES
Simon Goldhill looks to the archaeology, architecture, history and myths of Jerusalem in this beautifully written guide to Jerusalem's holy and secular sites from biblical times to the present, effectively conveying the magic of the place and its complex significance to Jews, Muslims and Christians. His focus is on Jerusalem as a lived-in city, organizing the book into seven chapters, each with its own map, one for each day of the week although, as he explains, "in Jerusalem everyone will encourage you to take the Sabbath off."
