Publisher's Summary

A gifted storyteller and spiritual director, Father James Martin, SJ, invites listeners 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 listener 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.

Loved it

When I began I felt like I missed parts because there was so much information so then I realized that I had focus on listening rather than having it as "background" By the end I was wanting more and didn't want it to end. It made me think and changed my perspective on a lot of the stories I grew up hearing. I would recommend to anyone who doesn't feel like it's possible to "know" Jesus. This book changed my mind

I Never Thought I'd Say This, But. . .

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I'm recommending this book to anyone of any faith who is interested in spirituality. Following the process of St. Ignatius Loyola, Fr. James Martin (a Jesuit priest) shows us how to pray in a different way. He uses his own experience of prayer, in connection with his one visit to the Holy Land, to teach a very simple but also very exciting way to get beyond the recitation of words to a real understanding of spirituality. For the Catholic reader, this book also will teach how to understand the Church's approach to Sacred Scripture. Fr. Martin reads this book himself, and he is the best one to do it, having lived the experiences he describes. I can't recommend this audiobook enough!

As close as I could be to being date!

What did you like most about Jesus?

The honesty of the book and the personal accounts provided yet applicable to everyone

What did you like best about this story?

A new view and perspective into previous held beliefs and thought, some incorrectly so

What does James Martin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

It was as though you were a third member of the pilgrimage, it was very inclusive.

A personal pilgrimage

It was beautifully written with readings from the Gospels, exposition and story telling about James' own pilgrimage in the Holy Land. I really felt that I was experiencing the sights with him and it gave me a new insight into the stories in the Gospels about Jesus and about the parables and miracles. A great book.
