‘An astute reporter with a dry humour and an impressive eye for detail’
Jerusalem is not an ordinary city and Crossing Jerusalem is not a standard telling of its story. At once a traditional travelogue, a questioning of spiritual values, and an examination of the beliefs that have sustains Jerusalem’s populations through centuries of conflict and division, this book offers an unusual yet penetrating perspective of the city and its inhabitance.
