A THIRD MILLENNIUM GUIDE TO
PILGRIMAGE TO THE HOLY LAND

Edited by Duncan Macpherson
Contributors include
Chris Doyle, John Harding, Michael Prior, Stephen Sizer and Jean Zaru


The Third Millennium of Christian history will undoubtedly attract a considerable amount of attention and interest to the land where Christ was born. This will be happening at a time when the continual exodus of native-born Christians threatens the very survival of the oldest Christian community in the world.
Christian pilgrims are expected to come to the Holy Land in ever greater numbers. This volume is intended to help them, not in the manner of a conventional guide, but as a collection which combines practical ideas with a distinctive theological perspective. This is the perspective of Living Stones, an organisation which seeks to build bridges between Christians in Britain and Christians in the Holy Land and neighbouring countries.
