Description

A magnificent historical tribute to the city of Jerusalem that encompasses the five turbulent millennia of its history, this book illuminates every facet of the amazing metropolis as documented by Jill and Leon Uris.

Jerusalem has variously been described as the center of the world, the eye of the world, and the navel of the world. Regarded as the halfway house between heaven and earth, this likening of Jerusalem to paradise has been echoed by mankind for over three thousand years. In this unprecedented historical tour of a one-of-a-kind place, Jill and Leon Uris pay homage to its epic history and the millions of people who have found sanctuary there.

Jill and Leon sing the city’s praises and remind us that “It is said the world has ten measures of beauty and nine of those belong to Jerusalem.”
