Here, by one of the world's greatest travel writers, is a portrait of the Holy Land as a physical embodiment of faith. Dramatically conjuring the beauty of Israel's countryside, In the Steps of the Master also evokes the all-consuming passions and deep-rooted mysteries of Jerusalem.

Morton's writing transcends travelogue in its portrayal of faith in a place where belief is made so concrete...and in its resonant tale of an intensely personal pilgrimage.
