Avoiding the usual cliches of descriptive writing, he offers a living and representative picture of this wealth. This book includes the majority of the religious shrines and historical sites in the West Bank with special emphasis on Jerusalem to catch its flavor and preserve a rare memory and an unforgettable experience. It is supplemented by maps of Jerusalem and Jordan in general together with four detailed plans of the Church of the Nativity, the Holy Sepulchre, Al Harahm El Sharif and Al Haram Al Ibrahimi in Hebron. Mr. Ghattas is an enthusiasitc Jordanian, an accurate exponent of the beauty of this country and deeply learned in its history and art".
