In examining a significant contemporary issue as the calendar approaches the holiday season, LIFE goes to "the Holy Land," the Middle East, to depict the places considered sacred by Jews, Christians and Muslims. Where did these faiths spring from, and what is the story that has these Holy Lands in such close proximity? The photography from these places is beautiful and inspirational; you can feel the ancient past as modern-day pilgrims pay homage. Crucial figures in each religion (not just Moses, Christ and Muhammad, but figures that have a large crossover role in the story) will be examined and explained. Beautiful artwork will embellish the photography, which will be, as always, the heart of this passionate LIFE book.
The editors at LIFE vigorously carry on the traditions of excellence in photography, in journalism, and in telling the story of our country and our world which began with LIFE magazine in 1936 by founding editor and publisher, Henry R. Luce. They have published books on a broad range of subjects, including New York Times bestsellers One Nation, LIFE Picture Puzzle and The American Journey of Barack Obama.
