Church News: About the cover

The Brigham Young University Jerusalem Center for Near Eastern Studies has been likened to "a city on a hill that cannot be hid." It is built in eight Mount Scopus. Each level commands a view of Jerusalem across the Kidron Valley.

Although some 4,000 visitors come to the center every month, it is more than a tourist attraction. It is an extension of BYU's Provo campus, a place where semester abroad participants study in the Holy Land. See story on page 3.
