The Holy Land is a focus for people of many different faiths, its historical and spiritual significance well documented. Israel Through My Eyes, however, written by a young Christian Ghanaian doctor, offers a new perspective on this unique country. On the one hand, it is an extremely personal account of life as a black man in Israel, staying in a student flat with Orthodox Jews. We learn of his growing understanding of the Jewish faith, others' reactions to his own faith, and the effects that such a diverse community has on the practices of the hospital at which he works. On the other, it is a detailed, informative and often humorous guide to the principal landmarks of Israel and will be of interest to anyone who wishes to get a greater insight into life in a place where religious devoutness and political upheaval so closely co-exist.
