Product Description

Review
------

“James Martin’s riveting new meditation on Jesus is one of the best books I’ve read in years―on any
subject. Jesus is a love letter to the first-century Jewish radical Martin has devoted his life to following. Bravo,
Father Martin, for writing a must-read.” (Mary Karr, author of Lit)

“Do we really need yet another book about Jesus? If the book is this one, the answer is yes, we do. Jim Martin’s
approach to a well picked–over subject is unique and original, and it will net the reader a glimpse into the Nazarene
not available elsewhere.” (Harvey Cox,, Hollis Research Professor of Divinity, Harvard Divinity School)

“Fr. James Martin, S.J. is refreshingly innovative in his Jesus: A Pilgrimage. He has a knack for giving a new
perspective to the familiar, making the reader exclaim, ‘Ah, yes!’ A superb gift.” (Archbishop Desmond Tutu)

“One of the best religion writers today, Fr. Martin has produced a remarkable combination of modern scholarship on the
Gospels, his experiences on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, his own creative imagination and sense of humor, and wise
advice pertaining to Christian life.” (Daniel J. Harrington, S.J., Professor of New Testament, Boston College School of
Theology and Ministry, editor of New Testament Abstracts)

“Martin communicates a joyful faith in God’s healing and the ultimate hope offered by the Resurrection. Throughout,
vivid details of his search in blistering heat for holy sites both authentic and dubious anchor this complex, compelling
spiritual testimony.” (Publishers Weekly, Starred Review)

“What can be said about Jesus that’s never been said before? Martin helps answer that question through an insightful,
balanced, intelligent, widely-embracing, and faith-filled account of his own journey in search of Jesus. A book for
everyone, regardless of creed or background. James Martin at his best!” (Ronald Rolheiser, OMI, author of The Holy
Longing)

“This is a sensitive, hearfelt inquiry into the person of Jesus. James Martin encounters Jesus again and again on a
pilgrimage through Israel. In his book the great texts of the Gospels come to live and are transformed for the reader
into an encounter with Jesus as he really was.” (Rev. Gerhard Lohfink, author of Jesus of Nazareth)

“James Martin does something remarkable in this book. He invites you to accompany him on a pilgrimage through the Holy
Land. New Testament scholarship opens up the life of Jesus so that the Gospels can speak to each of us personally and
transform us as they did their first hearers.” (John W. Martens, PhD, Associate Professor of Theology, University of St.
Thomas, St. Paul, Minnesota)

“Jim Martin’s book on Jesus is a gem. Learned yet highly accessible, he weaves together a number of insights gleaned
from the Gospels, a recent pilgrimage to the Holy Land, Ignatian spirituality, and his personal and pastoral experience.
This is a Jesus book I highly recommend.” (Thomas D. Stegman, S.J., Associate Professor of New Testament, Boston College
School of Theology and Ministry)

“James Martin has a gift for captivating both the reader’s head and heart. What a joy to take this personal and
fascinating pilgrimage with Fr. Martin, one that leads to a refreshing awareness and understanding of the beloved
Carpenter from Nazareth. This book not only informs, it inspires.” (Joyce Rupp, author of Praying Our Goodbyes and Open
the Door: A Journey to the True Self)

From the Back Cover
-------------------

A gifted storyteller and spiritual director, Father James Martin, SJ, invites readers to experience the stories of the
Gospels in a completely new, vivid, and exciting way to gain a deeper understanding of Jesus. Moving sequentially
through the Gospels, considering not only familiar passages but also the "hidden life" of Jesus, the book offers a bold
retelling of the life of Christ, faithful to the Christian tradition, while meditating on parts of the narrative that
have often escaped notice.

Martin provides personal stories from his own life, the most up-to-date biblical scholarship, and powerful anecdotes
from beloved spiritual teachers, and brings the reader along on his own real-life travels through the Holy Land.

Combining the fascinating insights of historical Jesus studies with profound spiritual reflections about the Christ of
faith, Martin re-creates the world of first-century Galilee and Judea to usher us into Jesus's life and times and reveal
how Jesus speaks to us today. Jesus: A Pilgrimage is an invitation to know Jesus as Father Martin knows him: Messiah and
Savior, as well as friend and brother.
