This is a fantastic epic history of the holy city of Jerusalem. The book covers the entire fascinating, bloody, chaotic, and consequential history of this enigmatic city. Jerusalem has always been at the crossroads of three continents, and at the crossroads of history itself. In this biography of the deity's city, you learn about the Hebrews, the Babylonians, Assyrians, Romans, Persians, Greeks, Arabs, Crusaders, Turks, British, and Israelis. And many other people who have made their imprint on this beautiful, holy, yet tragic city. And you learn about the history of the Jews, Christians, and Muslims who have ruled, and been ruled, in this city. I highly recommend the book, "Jerusalem: The Biography" and give it five stars.
