From 1000 BC to the present day, The Holy City of Jerusalem explores the construction of a city that has been repeatedly destroyed and rebuilt for over thirty centuries. It is also the story of a city that is holy to three different religions and the impact each has had on creating Jerusalem as it is today.
"Lüsted delves into the many layers of this ancient city's past, clearly explaining the influences of and conflicts between the three religious groups that hold it sacred. An absorbing blend of history, culture, and architecture, complete with black-and-white photos and reproductions."
