About the Book (Backcover Blurb):

Many of us only dream of traveling to the Holy Land. Very few, like Israel’s top aerial photographer, Ron Gafni, soar above the craggy mountain ranges of Masada, the salty Dead Sea, and the iconic locations where Jesus walked. “Israel – God’s Heart – Landscapes and Legacy,” beautifully captures the ancient landscapes of this great nation, as well as presents the legacy of God’s Redemption plan for the world.

As you slowly turn the pages, you will find unexpected vantage points, such as the Tower of David surrounded by city lights and fast paced cars. And, a hot air balloon floating over a field of cotton. From a bird’s eye view, you will also experience a vibrant, bustling, modern Israel. Biblical references and thoughtful narrative, by Author Kathleen Barrett, intertwines with awe inspiring photography to bring you to the Holy Land time and time again.

Why I Choose this Book:

I’ve wanted to go to Israel for a long time now, and so it was delightful to have the chance to have a whole book of pictures of that awe-inspiring country. Watch me opening the package with the book hereand me give a slight review of the book here

What I Thought about this Book:

Flipping through the book I wasn’t overly impressed, but when I stopped and took time to look at each picture and read the description, then it came alive. This book is so neat, and full of amazing pictures from Israel. It made me really want to study the landscape and history of Israel more. I’ve read a lot of books (both fiction and nonfiction) that took place in Israel, and this book gave a actual look at a lot of the places I’ve read about. I’m quite pleased indeed that I own this book so I can look through it whenever I want to.

It was slightly amazing to me how my mind sometimes sees Israel, because I often forget how modern it is, and how there are bustling cities and all that. The pictures of the cities were amazing to me, and reminded me of how time passes, even in “timeless” places like Israel.

Probably my favorite pictures were of the Dead Sea. I’m so intrigued! I want to go there now. It was quite beautiful which was rather surprising to me, even though I guess it shouldn’t have been.


The narrative was nice, although I kinda wish there had been more descriptions of the different pictures.

By the way, if anyone’s going to Israel, can I tag along? 😉


I’m giving Israel – God’s Heart Four out of five stars and recommend it to anyone who wants to go to Israel.
