This short book is designed to enable visitors and pilgrims to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem to understand and appreciate what they are seeing. Many people arrive at the church without any understanding of the history of the site. Hopefully this book will throw some light upon it.
The first part of the book introduces you to background questions about the gospel accounts of Jesusí crucifixion and burial, and to the development of the various churches that have stood on the site. It also introduces you to the various Christian groups that worship in the building today.
Part Two of the book will be useful as you walk around the building itself looking at the main points of interest such as Calvary, the tomb of Jesus, various chapels and other features you might miss without a guide. The Bibliography and Further Reading will enable you to take your study of this fascinating building further.
