1402-1403 Fr. Jerome Murphy-O’Connor
In 2008, during our last Book & The Spade Holyland Tour, I had the privilege of meeting the author of The Holyland tour guidebook, Father Jerome Murphy-O’Connor, arranged by my friend Tom Powers. Tom, at the time, was living at the Ecole Biblique in Jerusalem, as was Father Jerry, as he was called. We did an interview, which was edited in two programs, broadcast soon after we returned.
We learned on November 11th of his death, earlier that day. We are sorry about the loss of this great scholar and helpful author, but thankful we had the privilege of at least one brief meeting and the chance to record his perspective. So once again we present this interview, in his memory.
