Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil (Penguin Classics)
"Some of my best friends are anti-Semites"
I apologise for the flippant tone of my title, but this phrase of Arendt's seems to sum up the entire, absurd and sickening conundrum presented by Eichmann. Arendt is not, by and large, a humorous or entertaining writer, but she is a clear and thoughtful one, and such flippancy is not the norm. What she seems to have established, and the paradox is so absurd as to defy belief, is that Eichmann, a ...
A sequel to her much-acclaimed first book, The Beekeeper's Apprentice, this book tells the full story of the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and his young assistant, Mary Russell, as they flee London's criminal element and take haven in the Holy Land. In disguise as errant locals, the pair take up espionage duty on assignment from Holmes's older brother Mycroft, a key figure in the British ...
Jerusalem and the Holy Land (Eyewitness Travel Guides)
Good Job for the Holy Land
"Jerusalem" and the Holy Land" was a great help to me while on my recent Sabbatical. It was small enough to carry and yet informative enough to be worth carrying. However, since I was visiting 5 countries, I made a habit of leaving each guide book to lighten my load as I was picking up other items along the way. I bought this one to replace the original and couldn't have been happier to ...
For the Temple A Tale of the Fall of Jerusalem
Public Domain Books, 2009
I read all 400 pages in two days!
"Clash! Bang! Ka-ching!" The valley echoes with the sound of iron upon iron. Tight-lipped the two solitary foes circle each other, thrusting, slashing, striking, and warding off the blows of the other. Suddenly, the younger man, dressed in Jewish garb, and armed only with a sword and buckler, dashes under the heavily armed Roman's sword. The sudden impact throws the Roman to the ground, though ...
William Peter Blatty
This was probably the most intriguing book I have read in a long time. I found it to be well-written and thought-provoking. Having had learned something about the author, William Blatty, contributed to my enjoyment of the book. I have recommended it to others.
The New Jerusalem
Public Domain Books, 2004
G.K. Chesterton's View of The New Jerusalem vs. The New Nonsense
G.K. Chesteron's book titled THE NEW JERUSALEM is the only "angry" book this reviewer has ever read of Chesterton's vast literary work. This book is not for the timid or the dull. Those who are serious Catholics, religious Jews, or devout Muslims will learn from this book. Those who religious views are fashionable and politically correct will be shocked by honest language and thoughtful insight. ...
Can America Survive?: 10 Prophetic Signs That We Are The Terminal Generation
Every American should read this book
This book is serious stuff, and accurately written by a man who knows his history, both of the Bible and of the world. I learned so much, and a sentence stands out in my mind specifically: We need to be informed of what happened in history as this is the only way we can take steps for it not to be repeated. No one took Hitler seriously when he wanted to annihilate the Jews. No one is taking ...
Coelacanth Press, 2010
Not since I read Anne Rice--
have I found a vampire story so disturbing and audacious, yet curiously moving. I've never been a fan of the vampire genre, with the notable exception of Ms. Rice's books, which I didn't start to read until I was in my 40's. After reading all of them in quick succession, I didn't read another book about vamps for many years. My Kindle has opened up a whole new world to me: that of the ...
Covenant & Conversation, A Weekly Reading of the Jewish Bible, Genesis: The Book of Beginnings
Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks
Koren Publishers Jerusalem
Parshanut- at the highest level
This is one of the finest books of 'Parshanut' I have ever read. Each unit consists of a set of small essays on each Biblical Parsha, or weekly reading. Rabbi Sacks in reading the text addresses contemporary moral and religious issues. He does this with great intelligence and insight. But perhaps even more importantly what we are given in the book is a coherent Jewish philosophical reading of the ...
Streetwise Jerusalem Map - Laminated City Center Street Map of Jerusalem, Israel - Folding pocket size travel ...
Great map. Bring it.
Yes, the map is very dense and busy. But that's Jerusalem, and it has every tiny street (except in the old city), something lacking in most travel book maps and the like. In the old city, it had all the driveable and main streets, but it would be impossible to get more with this size map. Lamination was also convenient, due to rain and my tendency to rip maps.

The New Temple and the Second Coming by Grant Jeffrey
This book is a must read! Awesome.The New Temple and the Second Coming: The Prophecy That Points to Christ's Return in Your Generation
The Master and Margarita
Pilate washed his hands and sealed his fate
I first got attracted to this book when I knew it was a major influence on Mick Jagger's "Sympathy for the Devil", a song I liked since long ago. Then I researched a bit on Bulgakov at Wikipedia and downloaded a pdf version of the book. I just could not stop reading from the early beginning. It is the kind of book you wish you have written, for it deals with thoughts and feelings you already ...
The Road to Jerusalem
HarperCollins e-books, 2009
Magnificent epic medieval coming of age story

Later when her son Arn Magnusson miraculously recovers from a fall, she has a vision that forever changes the life of her second son, her family's business and even the future of her land, a land that will later become known as Sweden. She sends her son to Varnhem monastery where he will spend his life in the service ...
Field of Blood (Jerusalem's Undead Trilogy, Book 1) (Bk. 1)
Thomas Nelson, 2008
Field of Blood
Vampires and demons combined in a host of evil. This book is not for the faint of heart. If you like Ted Dekker's darkness, Frank Peretti's depth of character, and John Olson's penchant for symbolism, this is the book for you. I was enthralled by this tale, and horrified as well. Seriously, this deals with mature themes, so be warned! But it is a Christian novel to the core. Deep and terrifying, ...
From Beirut to Jerusalem: Revised Edition
Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2007
Exhaustive history of Arab-Israeli conflict
In a very exhaustive account of Middle Eastern politics, Friedman narrates, based on his experience of ten years as a journalist in the region (5 years each in Beirut and Jerusalem). Starting from 1896, when an Austrian journalist Theodore Herzl, the founder of modern Zionism, published a pamphlet titled "The Jewish State", leading to the present day conflicts. This book is a must read for all ...
Wherever You Go: A Novel
W. W. Norton & Company
An extraordinary read
I would have given this book six stars if the rating existed. I purchased this book in Israel as it has been released here ahead of the U.S. release. I can't say enough positive things about this book. After hearing Leegant speak I couldn't wait to start reading. And as an American living in Israel, I have read every novel out there about Israel and its relationship to America and the American ...
From Jerusalem to Irian Jaya: A Biographical History of Christian Missions
Ruth A. Tucker
Candid, simple presentation of missions
Ruth Tucker makes world missions more interesting than most writers I've read. Some want to glorify missionaries and present them as almost infallible in their devotion, spirituality, and mission practices. But I think most missionaries would rather be presented realistically, as fallible humans who are simply trying their best to spread the Gospel by whatever means possible. I once tried to ...
