Book Review: 30 Days in the Land with Jesus


30 Days in the Land with Jesus: A Holy Land Devotional, by Charles H. Dyer is a devotional travel guide.

In the Introduction, the author shared, "If you have never visited Israel you might struggle to place these events into their proper historical and geographical context.... But reading our geographical understanding into the Bible can lead to a misunderstanding of the story... I want to guide you in a month-long journey through the land of Israel.... The more you are able to place the events in the life of Jesus into their proper historical and geographical context, the more you will understand the message of the Bible."
 
Each daily devotion is actually a chapter that features a scripture passage to look up and read, as well as the devotional text and a section titled Walking in Our Land. Plus, there are full-color photographs depicting life in biblical times, such as the Judean Wilderness between Jerusalem and Jericho, Looking toward the cave at Caesarea Philippi, located at the base of Mount Hermon, and Old olive trees in the Garden of Gethsemane.

30 Days in the Land with Jesus, which is geared towards adults, is a one-month devotional travel guide focused on the book of Psalms.

"Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people both now and forevermore." Psalm 125:1-2


Note: I received this book from NetGalley, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
