American Bible Society Sacred Places

Jesus didn't preach in Manhattan, and Moses didn't part Lake Michigan. Sacred Places takes you from the comforts of 21st Century living and transports you to the sights and sounds that the Bible characters experienced.

When we hear of Bible characters or read their story, we often visualize scenes drawn from our own bank of experiences rather than the real places. Sacred Places explores these real locations. The Red Sea, Mt. Sinai, Jericho, Golgotha-each forms a textured backdrop to a story of the Bible. This book frames Biblical events in their original settings and brings them to life. More than just settings from a distant, historical event, readers will discover how many of these locations remain important destinations in the faith development of modern Bible readers.

Because the Bible and faith continue to influence people around the world, this book will escort readers to some of Christianity's major locations-both inside and outside the Holy Land. Sacred Places will help readers complete a virtual pilgrimage through houses of worship around the world, seeing impressive cathedrals and simple, dirt floor churches-and everything in between. No matter the location or the expanse of the sanctuary, the believers who meet there are joined through sacred faith and belief in the Bible that helps unify them.
