        Comments about National Geographic: The Photographs:

        After perusing this book for a SHORT time, it's now on my coffee table, for the education of guests. Its biggest ADVANTAGE is also a DISADVANTAGE — its small size: 6" x 6 1/2". I knew this before buying, but it would still be nice to have this book available in its original, LARGE size. Otherwise, I highly recommend this book!

            This National Geographic special issue starts with the geography of the Holy Land itself, including modern-day Israel and Lebanon, parts of Jordan, Syria, and northeast Egypt.

Then the issue moves into the three faiths that intersect in Jerusalem.
