About this item

An archaeological excavation of Tell Makor initiates a journey into the ancient history and culture of Israel that explores the life of the early Hebrews, the impact of Christianity, the Spanish inquisition, and the modern Middle East conflict. Reprint. 40,000 first printing.

In his signature style of grand storytelling, James A. Michener transports us back thousands of years to the Holy Land. Through the discoveries of modern archaeologists excavating the site of Tell Makor, Michener vividly re-creates life in an ancient city and traces the profound history of the Jewish people--from the persecution of the early Hebrews, the rise of Christianity, and the Crusades to the founding of Israel and the modern conflict in the Middle East. An epic tale of love, strength, and faith, "The Source "is a richly written saga that encompasses the history of Western civilization and the great religious and cultural ideas that have shaped our world.
Praise for "The Source"
"Fascinating . . . stunning . . . a] wonderful rampage through history . . . Biblical history, as seen through the eyes of a professor who is puzzled, appalled, delighted, enriched and impoverished by the spectacle of a land where all men are archeologists."--"The New York Times"
"A sweeping novel] filled with excitement--pagan ritual, the clash of armies, ancient and modern: the evolving drama of man's faith."--"The Philadelphia Inquirer"
"Magnificent . . . a superlative piece of writing both in scope and technique . . . one of the great books of this generation."--"San Francisco Call Bulletin"
