Karen Armstrong, "Jerusalem: One City, Three Faiths"
1997 | ISBN: 0679435964, 0345391683 | EPUB | 512 pages | 13 MB

"SPLENDID . . . Eminently sane & patient . . . Essential reading for Jews, Christians, & Muslims alike."
--The Washington Post

Venerated for millennia by three faiths, torn by irreconcilable conflict, conquered, rebuilt, & mourned for again & again, Jerusalem is a sacred city whose very sacredness has engendered terrible tragedy. In this fascinating volume, Karen Armstrong, author of the highly praised A History of God, traces the history of how Jews, Christians, & Muslims have all laid claim to Jerusalem as their holy place, & how three radically different concepts of holiness have shaped & scarred the city for thous&s of years.

Armstrong unfolds a complex story of spiritual upheaval & political transformation--from King David's capital to an administrative outpost of the Roman Empire, from the cosmopolitan city sanctified by Christ to the spiritual center conquered & glorified by Muslims, from the gleaming prize of European Crusaders to the bullet-ridden symbol of the present-day Arab-Israeli conflict.

Written with grace & clarity, the product of years of meticulous research, Jerusalem combines the pageant of history with the profundity of searching spiritual analysis. Like Karen Armstrong's A History of God, Jerusalem is a book for the ages.

"THE BEST SERIOUS, ACCESSIBLE HISTORY OF THE MOST SPIRITUALLY IMPORTANT CITY IN THE WORLD."
