Walk the Land: A Journey on Foot through Israel Review by Nancy Wagner

Judith Galblum Pex
Cladach Publishing

I didn't know there was an Israel National Trail, but it extends 600 miles from the Egyptian to the Lebanese border, spanning the length of Israel. John and Judy Pex, over 50 years old, walked the entire trail over the course of 42 days. This is the story of their walk, the people they met, and the geography of modern-day Israel. There are some pictures of the couple and the more unusual terrain along the way.

John (originally from the Netherlands) and Judy (from the U.S.) have lived in Israel for 30 years now, and they own a hostel near Eilat, Israel. They are strong Christians and shepherd a Messianic Jewish congregation near their home. Judy, who is of Jewish heritage, became a believer in Yeshua (Jesus) as Messiah over 30 years ago.

During their trip, many discussions and thoughts came to light as John and Judy traversed the country, going through Arab villages and past historical sites of Jewish, Christian, Arab, and Druez origins. They only occasionally felt mildly threatened, and most of the trip was actually made without meeting other people. This book presents many ideas that really deserve some searching of your own thoughts. There are even pages with discussion questions so that it can be used in a group study.

I recommend this book for adults searching for a deeper spirituality and walk with our Lord, Yeshua.
