Blincoe is personable, a wonderful writer, and downright funny which considering the importance placed on Bethlehem religiously, politically and geographically could make for a bummer of a read. From it's Paleo era settlement to the creation of an actual town Blincoe examines the forces that shaped the area dispelling myths along the way, always with a touch of humour. Bethlehem's tenuous contemporary issues are not underplayed, and despite the challenges to come, you can sense Blincoe's enduring love for the city.
