Here, in the spirit of Bruce Feiler's beloved bestsellerWalking the Bible , is a portrait of the Holy Land as a physical embodiment of faith. Dramatically conjuring the beauty of Israel's countryside,In the Steps of the Masteralso evokes the all-consuming passions and deep-rooted mysteries of Jerusalem,and while much has changed, as Morton says, the essential nature of the sites he visits has not.

'The much-loved master of his genre, often imitated but never matched. His books are genuine classics.' Jan Morris --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    H V Morton has written a number of travel books, but this is another of the three which I feel belong together, without being in any way a trilogy, or needing to be read in any special order, nor even all of them read.I loved it. It has the same mix as the other two, Through Lands of the Bible and In the Fotsteps of St Paul, mostly travel, but at a time when tourism and travel were far less common than they are today which makes it especially interesting, almost history indeedDespite the title it isn't a devotional book, just an interesting mix of travel and culture and history.which I think can be enjoyed at that level by people not necessarily involved with any church,

    This is one of the best books on travel experience to the Holy Land for two reasons, 1) You feel as if you are there 2) This book gives a picture of what the Holy Land was like in 1934 when Mr. Morton wrote it. This book was so good I ordered a copy before I had finished the copy that I had discovered by accident at the local library. This is a must read book. I will be ordering more copies to loan out and give as gifts.

  • By Mrs Jacky Chong on 28 February 2014

    This is a wonderful book for anyone interested in the Holy Land of today and yesterday. I have been fortunate to visit the Holy Land twice and this book gave me an added insight into how it once was. The author's description of Bethlehem will stay with me and gave a fascinating insight into the circumstances of the birth of Christ. It made sense! Morton gives clear explanations for many Bible passages, he engages with his reader giving detailed descriptions of places and people. This book was a delight to read and led me to purchase two more of his books, In the Steps of St Paul and Through the Lands of the Bible. I highly recommend his works.

  • By John Holland on 2 July 2014

    My father recommended this book to me when I was a youth. At last I decided to read it and found it most worthwhile. It is interesting historically and socially and most touching in places. It is at times deeply religious and one senses the presence of Christ as the author touches on significant places and their influence on pilgrims.

    This book was recommended to me a long time ago and I now understand why, and wish that I had read it earlier! An absolutely fascinating book. I look forward to reading it again & I have already bought some more copies to give to family & friends.

  • By Megan Long on 1 August 2013

    This is a superb book for all those who want to know about the times of Jesus and who are sesperately trying to follow in His footsteps. If only there could be more!

  • By Peter Sims on 31 July 2013

    I am on Pilgrimage in the Holy Land in November and remember this book from my father's bookcase. It was written in the 1930's and a slight update in 1964. H.V. Morton was a proto-type of the travel writers since the 1960's-Theroux, Morris. He is witty, interesting and pleasantly nosey.I have been to Israel and he can catch the mood I remember
