Overview

Blending travel with Biblical study, a unique look into the history of Christianity and the ancient world via seven cities mentioned in the Book of Revelation.

In the Book of Revelation, John mentions seven cities in the midst of his description of the second coming. Part archaeological investigation, part Bible study, and part travelogue, this intriguing work investigates each of these cities, which range from some of the grandest sites of Antiquity—such as Ephesus—to some of the smallest and most picturesque. The classical world is explored through John’s eyes, with detailed overviews of the civilizations of Greece and Rome by an outsider. Full touring guides highlight landmarks and must-see sites in each city, and practical information on traveling to each destination make this a perfect resource for the adventurer and armchair traveler alike.
