Description

Veteran author Ilene Cooper explores the turbulent history of one of Jerusalem's most sacred sites in this timely, illustrated nonfiction offering, Faith and Fury: The Temple Mount and the Noble Sanctuary. Towering over the Old City of Jerusalem is a place where worlds meet, conflict arises, and history changes. Known to Jews as the Temple Mount, it was once the site of the great temples built by Solomon and Herod. To Muslims, it is the Noble Sanctuary and home to one of the most sacred buildings in the Muslim world, the Dome of the Rock. Venerated by Jews, Muslims, and Christians alike, it attracts pilgrims and tourists from around the world-and is the focus of the bitter and intractable conflict between Israel and the Arab world that dominates today's news.
