A few years ago I had the privilege to travel to Israel and tour with a group of pastors. I was really in awe of everything I saw, and our tour guide did an amazing job of connecting the Bible to each site we visited. However, now that I have read the Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi, I want to go back! There is so much I missed! Kathie Lee Gifford and Rabbi Jason Sobel do an amazing job telling the story of the Holy Land, and communicating the significance of related scripture.
I imagine the travel itinerary for trips to Israel is similar regardless of the tour company you choose. This book covers it all including Mount Carmel, Capernaum, The Sea of Galilee, Bethlehem, The Mount of Olives, The Upper Room, The Garden of Gethsemane, and Jerusalem. I was given a book on my tour to help me better understand all that I was going to see. Where it was information, this book is insight! Even if you never get to go to Israel, this book will allow you to connect scripture with geography. I absolutely loved it! If you have a list of books you are wanting to read this year, move the Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi to the top of your list!
