A new edition of the definitive guide to the lands visited by St Paul and his companions, together with the sites associated with the Book of Revelation. Covering the sites, islands and cities likely to be included in a present day tour or cruise itierary, there is added detail that will also be a valuable aid to independent travellers.
With new chapters on St John and Patmos, and other Greek islands, there are new maps and plans, photographs and revised descriptions. The Letters to the Seven Churches of the Revelation are explained along with descriptions of the sites. Southern and Central Turkey are described along with a chapter on Istanbul.
Paul’s Macedonian Call includes descriptions of Philippi, Lydia, Kavala and Thessalonika, before moving on to Veria, Vergina, Meteora and Delphi. There is a good description of Athens, and then Corinth and the Peloponnese. Mykonos, Rhodes, Santorini and Crete are included in addition to Patmos.
The Malta section gives a good insight into this fascinating island with its layers of history, proud of its association with St Paul.
Cyprus today is still divided by the conflicts of the 1970s except that now it can be quite easy to explore the north and south together, and so visit all of the places associated with Paul, Barnabas and Mark. Salamis and Paphos provide ample reminders of the ancient world, while a string of UNESCO listed churches and monasteries stretch out into the mountains. The beautiful harbour of Kyrenia and the Crusader castles are further highlights.
These lands are rich in reminders of early Christian communities and the evangelical missions to establish and grow them.
