Was expecting this to be a world wide travel book.

I might have not read the description well enough but I thought this was a world wide book, not just a US places to pray book. There are so many places to visit world wide and that was what I was hoping for. I also think this book would do better with more pictures.

Traveling with prayer

Interesting selection of places to see. I expected most to be churches, but some were secular places.

Interesting places to visit, but no pictures in the book

The book lists interesting places, and sometimes an unexpected selection in some states. The new insights are appreciated. However, I really expected yo see a few pictures. Fortunately websites are provided, so I can go look for these.

I was disappointed that there weren’t pictures of the places. The descriptions are good.
