Lydia had everything. Education, money, social position…a fulfilling professional life as head of a department in her school…a luxurious apartment with a devoted maid to care for it…parties, dancing, admiring friends, expensive clothes…and a proposal of marriage. What strange series of events led her to abandon all this and journey alone and penniless to an alien land where she would experience almost daily danger? APPOINTMENT IN JERUSALEM is the unforgettable true story of a twentieth century woman who dared to take the Bible at its literal face value and in so doing discovered what many seek but few ever find. Joy. Peace. Perfect security – no matter how desperate the external condition of her life. This is not a story that glosses over the struggles and difficulties of the Christian walk, but one that offers practical help for every man and woman embarked on this most exciting journey of all.
