Previous owner name stamp inside front cover.; One estimate says that since 1972 at least 10,000 Latter-day Saints have come to Israel for hours, or days, or years, and from many lands and climes. In a shrinking in mobile world the Church is more and more international. The numbers are increasing rapidly.

There are waiting lists for the Semester Abroad programs, bringing a capacity 160 students each time. Teachers and their spouses in the Institutes and Seminaries come in large groups annually in crowd their days with first-hand exposure to all the sites and sites - the world's greatest combination of visual aids - to enhance their teaching of Scripture, history, and the source of spirituality.... Why are they here?

They are here with abundant skills and multiple interests. But underneath is a deeper concern: All are sensitized to the heritage of the Holy Land. In one way or another all are consciously tracing their religious lives upstream. All are here to lay a foundation for whatever else they do in life. They want to understand. They want to be trained. And whatever else they are doing, they want to find themselves under the Light of Truth. --- excerpts from book's Foreword
