Gardens reveal the relationship between culture and nature, yet within the substantial library of garden literature, Sacred Gardens and Landscapes is among the few to focus on what the garden means in the spirit realm Undeniably, Sacred Gardens and Landscapes is a magnificent compendium about a subject address by few writers: the mystical dimension of : $ In the counterculture spirituality of the Christian desert fathers, these fierce landscapes signaled the death of self, the limits of language, the unknowability of God, and the threat of nothingness. Lane rediscovers the meaning of love in his encounters with the Holy One in desolate places.

Sacred Landscape raises troublesome questions that most writers on the Middle East avoid. The now-buried Palestinian landscape remains a symbol and a battle standard for Palestinians and Israelis.

But it is Benvenisti's continuing belief that Eretz Israel/Palestine has enough historical and physical space for the people of both nations and that it can one day be a shared homeland.
