Dr. J. David Newman, the editor-in-chief of Adventist Today, will be co-leading a Thanksgiving season tour of Israel. Readers are invited to join the tour; there will be plenty of  opportunities to discuss the current situation and future of the Adventist faith and movement in private, off-the-record small groups.

The other co-leader is Andy Nash, author and former editor of Adventist Today, currently a journalism professor at Southern Adventist University. The two will present the rich history of the Bible lands and violinist Jaime Jorge will perform favorites like Via Dolorosa and I Walked Where Jesus Walked as well as others.

The tour will include stops in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Bethany, Nazareth, Cana, Joppa, Caesarea, Megiddo, Capernaum, the Dead Sea, the Jordan River and a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee. It is scheduled for November 20 to 30 right at the beginning of the Christmas season.

Travel is at its lowest right now, making this not only the experience of a lifetime, but also affordable. For more information, send an Email to or phone (423) 298-2141. More information at Tours.
