Tourists spend several days glimpsing people and places around Galilee. Dr. Ray Register lived 39 years interacting with persons of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths from Haifa to Nazareth to Jerusalem to Bethlehem. Prepared with excellent academic training the author knew the hist... ory of the land and its peoples and the great religious traditions. The reader gets a sense of the personalities, the cultures, the history, and politics of the whole area. As a missionary, he had the heart for both tender and tough love in the critical issues of war and peace, of persons accepting the Christian message and of denying it, of the complexities of politics and religion, and of the sacrifices a convert to Christ had to make. Ray and Rose Mary raised three children in the land of deep memories of Abraham, Jesus, and Muhammad. As you read Galilee Wanderings, you will follow the steps of a missionary who traveled every nook and cranny of the land and observed acts of war and deeds of peace and lived alongside those who courageously followed Christ. Galilee Wanderings is a personal story of contrasts; North and South, East, and West, good and evil, war and peace, success and failure, beauty and ugliness, conservatism and liberalism, blessings and curses, monotheism and Trinity. It is experiences of mystery and revelation, of how God took a boy conceived out of wedlock and made him a man in the Holy Land. Raised by a Yankee mother of rich ancestry and a macho southern father who was a Scout Master and problem drinker all at the same time, Ray’s story is of God’s discipline and grace during his Galilee Wanderings.
