Book Summary

A captivating pictorial of the Holy Land and a scriptural journey through God’s redemptive story.

Many of us only dream of traveling to the Holy Land. Very few, like Israel’s top aerial photographer, Ron Gofni, soar above the craggy mountains ranges of Masada, the salty Dead Sea, and the iconic locations where Jesus walked. Israel – God’s Heart – Landscapes and Legacy beautifully captures the ancient landscapes of this great nation, as well as presents the legacy of God’s redemption plan for the world.

As you slowly turn the pages, you will find unexpected vantage points, such as the Tower of David surrounded by city lights and fast-paced cars and a hot air balloon floating over a field of cotton. From a bird’s eye view, you will also experience a vibrant, bustling, modern Israel. Biblical references and thoughtful narrative by author Kathleen Barrett intertwines with awe-inspiring photography to bring you to the Holy Land time and time again.

Book Review by Bree Herron

To see this beautiful land in this book was to be able to touch a piece of the Land we all crave to see. To see moments captured in photographs that were so well done, it is truly inspiring.

This is a coffee table must have book. It will delight a reader, historian or one of faith with its images and details. It has a variety of shots that flow nicely from one to the other. Historical cities, landmarks were one of my personal favorites to look at as it told a story of the people not just the land. I never knew the diversity of the land however, until seeing images of Israel in this book.
