Description:
Perhaps no other city has been spoken
of as often or as passionately as
Jerusalem. The Jerusalem Book of Quotations
brings together the kaleidoscopic
impressions and perspectives
of a representative group of those
who have responded to the wonder of
the Holy City from the biblical period
to the present: Jews, Christians, and
Muslims; pilgrims as well as skeptics,
travelers, conquerors, scholars, and
statesmen. The work gives expression
to the discordant notes of contrasting
perspectives about the meaning of
Jerusalem. At the same time, it reflects
the cityís unique distinction as the
embodiment of mankindís highest
ethical and spiritual aspirations.
