The Affect of the Temple Mount

Instead of being diminished though, the biblical stories--as G.K. Chesterton said of the Eucharist -- were made more mysterious by their visibility and absence of secrecy. The longer I spent there, the deeper my hunger grew: for biblical theology, true worship, and Christian community.

Approaching the Temple Mount, Rachel suddenly could not walk on the place where the Holy of Holies is said to dwell. In them, I saw glints of reverence I never had before.
