James Lurie's rich voice and expert phrasing make him a favorite narrator for serious biographies and nonfiction. His measured delivery is particularly effective for a history that, like its subject, straddles a number of sacred boundaries. For countless centuries Jerusalem has been built and rebuilt on top of its own ruins, and several faiths claim its ground. Here the subject is the city's archeological history, which is rife with controversy and drama. Lurie, like the author, keeps to an objective tone, and his reportorial presentation allows listeners to form their own judgments. The perennial quest for Solomon's Temple and its lost Ark of the Covenant has yet to produce results, but Lurie's account of the many vain efforts is story enough for several audiobooks.
