This book is an illustrated poem that wonderfully captures the spirit of Jerusalem. This city, revered by three powerful religions, has been the home to many different nations. The myths and beliefs about this sacred place that so many claim as their homeland have flavored the air itself. I think this book is worth checking out to enjoy both the poetry and the tender taste of Jerusalem. Podwal's hints towards certain stories could be the beginning of some interesting research or scripture study.
