In The Source, in his signature style of grand storytelling, James Michener sweeps us back through time to the Holy Land, thousands of years ago. By exploring the lives and discoveries of modern archaeologists excavating the site of Tell Makor, James Michener vividly re-creates life in and around an ancient city during critical periods of its existence, and traces the profound history of the Jews, including that of the early Hebrews and their persecution, the impact of Christianity on the Jewish world, the Crusades, and the Spanish Inquisition.

A superlative story and long! But it's one I have read more than once over the years, and still find enjoyable. And it's one of the few Michener books I have actually been able to finish.

The Source is one of my all-time favorite books. I love how the author can turn a small item, long hidden in the earth, into a fascinating story. We are taken on a journey through ancient history, with each period in time illuminated by the lives of a few individuals.
