Holy Fire !


    Jill Dudley's search for enlightenment continues as she and her husband Harry join a Christian pilgrimage to the Holy Land. As a confused agnostic in contrast to Harry who takes Christianity on trust, she is at her humorous best as she travels with her fellow pilgrims and attempts to toe the line to their Christian expectations of her. She listens to pro- and anti- Zionists, and speaks to Orthodox Jews and frustrated Palestinian Christians. They stay in Jerusalem, and visit Bethlehem, Qumran, Masada, travelling south to the Dead Sea, and then north to Tiberius on the Sea of Galilee visiting Caesarea, Nazareth, Capernaum and Megiddo where the final battle and the end of the world is expected. Holy Fire! is an informative, well-researched, light and easy read, filled with gods, myths and memorable characters.
