Soon to be published, Leen & Kathleen Ritmeyer’s JERUSALEM – THE TEMPLE MOUNT is a peaceful ecumenical book intended for Muslims, Christians, Jews, and all those for whom the Temple Mount has special meaning. The authors endeavor to afford each and every visitor or reader an opportunity to acquaint himself with, relate to and contemplate sites that may resonate for him when reading Holy Scripture. Sadly, Muslims insist that the Temple Mount, holy to millions, should be exclusively theirs and indeed various sites are not as accessible as one would wish.
This guide is also meant for all those who have already seen or read about the marvels of the world – be it the Niagara Falls in North America, the ancient Inca Temples in South America, the Great Wall of China, the Sistine Chapel in Rome, the great pyramids and sphinx of Egypt, Australia's Great Barrier Reef – but have yet to visit Jerusalem. All are invited to . . . Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord. . . (Isaiah 2:3).
