Additional Information

This is the first comprehensive guide book written about Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity, based on the latest scholarly research, yet designed for a popular audience. Jerusalem's legendary photographer Garo Nalbandian provides color photographs of every section of the church complex, its mosaics and painted columns, artifacts from different eras, and glimpses of sites not usually available for public viewing. The church, one of three built under the direction of the emperor Constantine and his mother Helena, is recognized for its commemoration of Jesus' birth, and, as one of the oldest in the world, provides a microcosm of the whole of Christian history continuing today with the living stones, the local worshiping Palestinian Christian community.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I have visited the Church of the Nativity at least twenty times over the years, often with the aid of professional guides. I thought I knew a thing or two about the ancient church. Strickert's short study proved me wrong. Here one finds a treatment of the church's history, architecture, and art that is too easily missed by an unguided visitor. Illustrated by the photographs of the famous Palestinian artist Garo Nalbandian, the book gives the reader not just a sense of the church's past, but also how this World Heritage site continues to be the spiritual home to Palestinian Christians in and around Bethlehem.
Whether you read this book to prepare for a visit to Bethlehem or in recollection, you'll be richly rewarded. I read it in retrospect myself, and it both brought back fond memories and filled in all kinds of gaps for me (especially about the figures on the pillars in the nave, which are barely visible now). Highly recommended for both the text and the beautiful photographs.
