Jesus: A Pilgrimage | James Martin
8 posts | 7 read | 3 to read
James Martin, SJ, gifted storyteller, editor at large of America magazine, popular media commentator, and New York Times bestselling author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything, brings the Gospels to life in Jesus: A Pilgrimage, and invites believers and seekers alike to experience Jesus through Scripture, prayer and travel. Combining the fascinating insights of historical Jesus studies with profound spiritual insights about the Christ of faith, Father Martin recreates the world of first-century Galilee and Judea to usher you into Jesus's life and times and show readers how Jesus speaks to us today. Martin also brings together the most up-to-date Scripture scholarship, wise spiritual reflections, and lighthearted stories about traveling through the Holy Land with a fellow (and funny) Jesuit, visiting important sites in the life of Jesus of Nazareth. The person at the heart of the Gospels can seem impossibly distant. Stories about his astonishing life and ministryclever parables that upended everyone's expectations, incredible healings that convinced even skeptics, nature miracles that dazzled the dumbstruck disciplescan seem far removed from our own daily lives, hard to understand, and at times irrelevant. But in Jesus you will come to know him as Father Martin knows him: Messiah and Savior, as well as friend and brother.

This book has been on a Pilgrimage of sorts with me this summer! Just finished it on yet another beach. I enjoyed this book very much. Having just returned from the Holy Land myself, I could picture the places Martin describes. I also appreciated his personal retelling and reflections on the Scriptures from the places that he visited.You don‘t have to be a Scripture scholar to appreciate, though! He explains it all in plain language.

Starting to get into some summer reading! Picked this up after my trip to the Holy Land this year. Can‘t wait to relive some of those moments and places. I also can‘t wait to have the whole summer to soak up some sun, relax, and read! 🙌☀️ #teacherlife

Read this in preparation for my own Holy Land pilgrimage and loved it! One of my fave quotes, "But it was true. I was constantly surprised how the storied names of biblical locales popped up in the most familiar of circumstances: on a simple map, on a graffitied street sign, or in everyday conversations. 'The traffic to Bethlehem was terrible last night!' said a Jesuit over dinner one night. Which still didn‘t beat 'Gehenna is lovely.'"

...why have I committed my life to Jesus? The answers turn on the question of who I believe Jesus is, so it's fair to tell you before we begin our pilgrimage.

Perfect way to spend a rainy day at the library. :)
