When most of us think of a trip to the Holy land, we envision air-conditioned buses, relaxing walks to favorite Bible destinations, and a cushy vacation feel. But this week on The Land and the Book, we’ll talk to a pastor who took an “Extreme Israel Trip.” So lace up those hiking boots—and make sure you’ve got plenty of water. Plus, Charlie Dyer will bring us up to date on all the hot stories coming out of the Middle East. That’s The Land and the Book.
