    1. Rereading at bedtime. I love Morton's writing so much, the way he paints pictures and weaves his thoughts in among them. Original review below.---------Simply fantastic. I am a H.V. Morton fan anyway. He had such a knack for drawing one into the past while talking about how it turned into his present time and he wrote long enough ago that his "current times" are a look into the past for us.In this case, we see where St. Paul traveled through fairly modern eyes but while those places were still [...]


    2. I was introduced to Morton a few years ago with the purchase of In Search of London from a thrift store and was instantly enamored. He is a travel writer from the early to mid twentieth century and his writing is a rich blend of not only travel information, but history and his own experiences, bringing a unique perspective on a vanishing world. This book was an even better read, perhaps because of the subject matter, but also enriched by adding a narrative of Paul's own journey as Morton is on h [...]


    3. Very much enjoyed this. I haven't read any travel writing before, from any era, and unlike when reading a novel (must get to the end!) I found myself reading slowly to eke out the pleasure. His descriptions of approaching places from the sea are absolutely wonderful, and of course timeless: whereas his opinions on Turkey in the 1930's offer the extra interest of being historical documents for us now. I also felt I understood St Paul rather better seeing him through Morton's eyes. And the best th [...]


    4. (a comment, not review)This one is a true pleasure. What appeals to me about this is that we're reading two histories at once. As Morton recounts stories of the classical and biblical eras, he is also giving a contemporary account of a world that has entirely vanished. From an angle, considering the time this book is originally written, we're already too much into the future and so the scenes he shows us and those pass through our either sides are almost not in existence anymore.


    5. I read this in step with a sermon series on the book of Acts at my church. Fascinating book! Morton follows the steps of Paul around the eastern Mediterranean, offering part travel journal and part Biblical commentary. He's a great writer. It was written in the 1930s, when that part of the world was a very different place.


    6. Really enjoyed this and other early H. V. Morton. Much of the world hadn't changed much in centuries when he traveled and wrote about it.
