The Battle for Christ's TombBook - 2005
During 2002 and 2003 Victoria Clark spent time in Jerusalem with the aim of `immersing myself in Jerusalem's Christian past while observing its Christian present'. What she wanted was to discover why `the planet's most intractable conflict' came into being, why it has lasted for 2,000 years and why there is no end in sight. Written in the first-person, and full of reconstructions of her conversations with Jerusalem's very mixed collection of Christians, this deeply personal narrative surveys the present state of Christendom in Jerusalem whilst reflecting on the succession of outsiders who have made Jerusalem their business, from crusaders to the American government.
