"Behold, this stone shall be for a witness . . . so that you do not deny the Lord your God." Joshua 24:27
This book is a unique attempt to integrate the topography of the Holy Land not just with its archaeological sites and ancient route ways, but with its geology. Such integration of disciplines to demonstrate the accuracy of the biblical record is a new awareness for Christian pilgrims.
In a sweeping yet succinct overview of Christian spirituality, Dr. Houston shows that the stones that shape the stories of our faith must come alive for us, if we are to know our own souls. Written in response to a pilgrimage that integrated many strands of his life, it describes this way of passing beyond page and place into living Presence.
