Your Guide – Paul Brunton

Paul Brunton is a Christian historian and author. His deep knowledge of the scripture and extra biblical writings and the history of the land and people of Israel from both an Israel and other-nation perspective, makes him a rare wealth of knowledge. He has climbed into forbidden caves, found the doves of the River Jordan, discovered the real Mt Sinai and if asked will tell you the real identity of the widely disputed Kings of the Persian empire.

He is a family man, with a love of God, the Bible, the land and a lot of fun to be with and a board member of Good News for Israel. Paul is our recommendation for The Historical Tour.
