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

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!

Well spoken, excellent story and descriptions. Really helped me to better understand Jesus. For those wanting to know more about Jesus.
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.
