Venerated for centuries by Jews, Christians, and Muslims alike, Jerusalem has remained the center of conflict and strife for too long. In her new book, Karen Armstrong explains how Jerusalem has become so deeply rooted in the identities of the three major religions branching from Abraham. Armstrong helps us to understand the nature of Jerusalem's intrinsic holiness while describing the importance of its richly woven history, its archaeology, and its ever-changing topography. Students of religious history will be fascinated by this narrative account, depicting Jerusalem from its earliest beginnings in the 3rd millennium BC through its present-day political issues in the Middle East.
