Description from the publisher:
These entertaining folk tales from the Holy Land, an area that is home to Christianity, Islam and Judaism, have lovingly been gathered by a lifelong resident cleric of the region. Stories of the Creation, saints, and sinners tell of Adam, Abraham, Noah, Moses, and other revered figures; anecdotes describe tribes, people, languages, and sites such as the Jaffa Gate at Jerusalem. Still others illustrate social ideas, superstitions, plant and animal lore, and magical cures. Filled with wit, wisdom, and humor, these beguiling narratives will be prized by students of Middle Eastern cultures and anyone interested in this legendary land.
