Book Talk: Under Jerusalem by Andrew Lawler
Hosted By: Worcester JCC
THURS JAN 26 at 7PM, Andrew Lawler will discuss his newest nonfiction book, “Under Jerusalem: The Buried History of the World’s Most Contested City.”
Sacred to three faiths and revered by more than half the people on the planet, Jerusalem conjures up powerful images of the celestial. Yet beneath its narrow alleys and holy places, the ancient city conceals a labyrinthine, three-dimensional time capsule recording five millennia of bustling prosperity, brutal war, and repeated religious innovation that altered the course of human history. Lawler explores a saga of biblical treasures, intrepid explorers, and political upheaval, taking readers into the tombs, tunnels, and trenches of the Holy City.
