Praise

“Masterly. . . . [Full of] pathos, lyricism and depth.” –The New York Times Book Review

“Powerful. . . . Full of wonders. . . . Dares to examine exactly when, why and how the outcrop of stone that was believed to be the site of the ancient temple of Solomon–already sacred to both Judaism and Christianity–was first claimed as a holy place by Islam . . . thus establishing Jerusalem as ground zero in the bloody and enduring conflict among the three great monotheistic faiths. . . . Could not be more timely.” –Los Angeles Times

“Important and imaginative. . . . Solid, interesting, accessible, and highly illuminating.” –The Washington Post Book World
