The Challenge of Jerusalem


Walking where it all began

In Night of Fire, Eric-Emmanuel described his mystical experience in the Ahaggar Desert. Now, he returns to first origins, with a memoir of his trip to the Holy Land, a territory indelibly marked by the imprint of History. Bethlehem, Nazareth, Caesarea: intense and cosmopolitan places which he captures on the instant, at the same time deepening his spiritual experience and prompting new questions, reflections, sensations and wonderment, until the final surprise in Jerusalem and an unexpected encounter with a man he calls “The Enigma”.
