NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER. WINNER OF THE 2015 CATHOLIC PRESS ASSOCIATION BOOK AWARD.

“James Martin’s riveting new meditation on Jesus is one of the best books I’ve read in years—on any subject.”  — Mary Karr, author of Lit

James Martin, SJ, gifted storyteller and New York Times bestselling author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything, brings the Gospels to life and invites believers and seekers alike to experience Jesus through Scripture, prayer, and travel.

Father Martin ushers you into Jesus’ life and times and shows us how Jesus speaks to us today through combining fascinating insights of historical Jesus studies with profound spiritual insights about the Christ of faith, recreating the world of first-century Galilee and Judea.

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.

Stories about Jesus’ astonishing life and ministry—clever parables that upended everyone’s expectations, incredible healings that convinced even skeptics, nature miracles that dazzled the dumbstruck disciples—can seem far removed from our own daily lives but in Jesus you will come to know him as Father Martin knows him: Messiah and Savior, as well as friend and brother.

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

“Father Martin calls archeologists and exegetes to witness in his narrative. He bares his own life experiences. It’s all at the service of the greater story―the greatest ever told. If I have the privilege of visiting the Holy Land again, I will see it differently because I’ve read this book.” -- Scott Hahn, Professor of Theology and Scripture at Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, author of Understanding Scripture

“It isn’t often that a book invites you to make a journey through the Holy Land in the company of an inspiring, well–informed and entertaining guide like James Martin. Enjoy the journey, but don’t be surprised if it changes you.” -- Margaret Silf, author of Inner Compass and Simple Faith

“Martin offers a very personal meditative memoir, but one informed by critical biblical and archaeological scholarship and graced with his accustomed narrative skill. His entertaining, thoughtful, and inspiring account will delight both seasoned pilgrims and those who want to be.” -- Harold W. Attridge, Sterling Professor of Divinity and emeritus dean, Yale Divinity School

“Whether encountering Jesus for the first time, or wanting to know him better, you’ll find a wonderful guide in Fr. Martin. He takes us on his tour of the Holy Land, treading in the footsteps of Jesus. More than a travelogue or commentary on scripture―it’s a life-transforming pilgrimage.” -- Robert Ellsberg, editor of The Duty of Delight: The Diaries of Dorothy Day

“Fr. James Martin, chaplain to the Colbert nation, uses the geography of the Holy Land to map out the separate plots of earth called historical Jesus, christology, and personal (as well as ecclesial) spirituality. Every reader will enjoy the journey through this triple territory with such an insightful companion.” -- Professor John P. Meier, William K. Warren Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame

“In this inspiring medley of travelogue, academically informed Bible study, and pilgrimage, Martin resurrects an ancient Christian form of spirituality and serves as a trustworthy guide through the life of Jesus. Jesus is a must-read for those who want their Bible brought to life with accuracy, sincerity, and sparkle.” -- Candida Moss, Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity, University of Notre Dame

“Want a pilgrimage to the Holy Land with a reliable guide? Open these pages and travel with Fr. Jim Martin. He’s at his best here, opening the Gospel mysteries, but with a light touch. Serious scholar, yes―but mostly a pilgrim believer trying to make his way, just like us.” -- Sister Helen Prejean, CSJ, author of Dead Man Walking

“This delightful book combines personal reflections, spiritual nuggets, insights from top biblical scholars, theologians, and archaeologists, in a folksy and engaging style. As Martin shares his pilgrimage, he makes Jesus and his land and times come alive, inviting others to meet Jesus and embark on their own pilgrimage.” -- Barbara E. Reid, O.P., Professor of New Testament and Vice President and Academic Dean, Catholic Theological Union, Chicago

“Written in clear, accessible prose and laced with the author’s trademark good cheer, this is a deeply personal narrative. Read this book and be inspired to encounter Jesus in your own way, in the company of a spiritually insightful guide.” -- Elizabeth A. Johnson, CSJ, Distinguished Professor, Fordham University

Jesus is a delight to read and a work of substance for the committed Christian. Vividly written, and rich in historical detail and analysis, it’s also a movingly personal journey of faith. This is a book that will linger in the reader’s heart.” -- Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap. Archbishop of Philadelphia

“This is an invaluable book for anyone desiring to know more about Jesus, and how his life can illumine our own spiritual pilgrimage. James Martin makes familiar Gospel stories fresh, and helps us see how in our ordinary lives we might better answer God’s call to conversation and conversion.” -- Kathleen Norris, author of The Cloister Walk

“Fr. Martin provides those who have stepped away from their faith, or who are not believers, the opportunity to better know who Jesus was. Whether you are one of Jesus’ most fervent disciples or a questioning observer, this book will help you understand Jesus is our brother and friend forever.” -- Cardinal Sean O''Malley, archbishop of Boston

“The book is solidly based in contemporary Jesus studies but its charm lies in the insight a fellow Christian has gleaned into the God-man of the Gospels through his own personal and deepening relationship with Jesus.” -- Sandra M. Schneiders, Jesuit School of Theology, Santa Clara University

“A consideration of Christ, human and divine, from an on-native-ground perspective…. An intelligent, lively travelogue…and a welcome complement to a direct reading of the Gospels.” -- Kirkus Reviews

“James Martin’s witty account of his pilgrimage in the Holy Land gives one an acute sense of how wonderful it is that God has walked in our land and shared our lives. It touches our imagination and ignites it anew.” -- Timothy Radcliffe, OP, former Master General of the Dominican Order

“Highly accessible, inviting-even magnetic-and meant to be read by those who have always wanted a companion, a mentor, and an understanding friend to accompany them. A profound book.” -- Joan Chittister, OSB, author of Called to Question

“Part travelogue, part memoir and part very Martinesque - that is, funny, conversational and deep.” -- Washington Post

“About halfway through the Gospel of Mark, Jesus asks... ‘Who do you think I am?’ In his new book, Jesus: A Pilgrimage, Jesuit priest, Jim Martin, searches for an answer and his answer just might surprise you.” -- Huffington Post

“Mixed with theology, history, tradition, and Fr. Martin’s wisdom and wit, we put ourselves in the exact moment and location of Jesus and try and picture what it must have been like for both Jesus and those around Him.” -- Stuart''s Study Blog

“The more personal and the more subjective and even the more chatty the account of this pilgrimage becomes, the closer we draw, even without realizing it, to its divine-human subject.” -- Peter Milward, SJ, St. Austin''s Review

“The blend of distilled scholarship and narrative is infectious. Travelogue, spirituality and theological reflection combine with wit and human insight.” -- The Tablet

“[ Jesus] blends Bible study, spiritual reflection, personal memoir and travel writing in a way that (mercifully) differs from the classically dull, dry volumes on the life of Christ.” -- Busted Halo

An inspirational memoir that stands as a fresh perspective on Jesus with Martin’s own travel narrative and a Bible study that is scholarly and inspirational, this book is perfectly pitched for general readers with his fluid, magazine-style prose- definitely a “mash-up” of styles, but Martin makes it work! -- ReadTheSpirit

A treasure...a wise and entertaining book that should appeal to the spiritual pilgrim in all of us, no matter what the faith and no matter whether believer or nonbeliever. -- Chicago Tribune

Jesus: A Pilgrimage is the Jesus book for smart people who are seeking to understand the singular person of Jesus of Nazareth through the illuminated lens of Father Martin’s intelligent, funny, prayerful and profound faith.” -- Paul Raushenbush, Executive Religion Editor for The Huffington Post

“I’m beginning to feel that [ Jesus: A Pilgrimage] might be a ‘must have’ for Christians who want a more rounded, personal experience of Christ. Or for those who don’t understand the “Christian thing” and would like some general context of their own.” -- Happy Catholic Blog

“Part travelog, part biblical commentary, part memoir, part meditation … This will appeal to readers (not just Catholics) seeking an introduction to the Gospels that is personal but rooted in serious scholarship.” -- Library Journal

“It takes a ‘human one’ to write well about the consummate ‘Human One,’ Jesus. And James Martin does that very well! Come to see, and be seen by, the one who has loved so many of us into life.” -- Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation, Alubuquerque, NM, author of Everything Belongs

“Martin draws on solid scholarship and also on his own experience, along with an accessible and attractive style, all of which makes this book an attractive and substantial spiritual reading.” -- The Bible Today

“Outstanding...[Martin is] a masterful teacher and story teller.” -- Our Sunday Visitor

“Remarkable...fascinating... Martin interweaves scholarship into a popular-level narrative which will at once introduce many readers to their work and at the same time challenge readers to understand the Gospel narratives in new ways.” -- Catholic News Service

“Combining memoir, theology and history, Father Martin recounts how his sense of place in the churches and holy sites he visits illuminates his Sense of Place as a follower of Jesus. His honest, sensitive reading of Scripture through the lens of intelligence and faithfulness left me feeling joyful.” -- First for Women

“My highest recommendation...Just read this book and you will understand more about the times in which Jesus lived-and more about what the Gospel stories mean-than you could ever imagine.” -- The Leaven

I bought this book initially because I am hoping to visit the Holy Land one day. I was told this was a great book to read in preparation for the journey. I went into it thinking this will be a way to learn more about where I would be going and thus educate myself on what I would be experiencing while directly relating it to the life of Christ. This however, is anything but a "learn about" kind of book. Fr James Martin invites the reader from the get go to treat this as a pilgrimage. Thus the reader experiences the areas as if they were on pilgrimage themselves. Each chapter highlights the events of the time cross checked by where it is at in scripture (and the scripture itself appears at the end of the chapter) and further delves into the personality of Jesus. This is a book I will read again and I am sure the experience will be different. It is a wonderful book that is unique to each person because it is not just a story but an encounter with the Living God. Fr James Martin is a gifted writer and I am thankful he created this book for many to enjoy.

This book gave me much to ponder. My favorite chapters, though, were chapters 14 and 15. The 14th was about the man who was possessed by "Legion". His demons were tied by the author to our demons and how they possess us. The 15th was about Lazarus which he tied to our focus on the inconsequential when speaking to God. On page 326, he writes what he would have liked to say to Martha; " ''Just look beside you: its Jesus! Surrender yourself to what he is about to do, and stop focusing on the smell.'' " In fact, now I say (to myself) "but he stinketh" when I get distracted by something that God could easily handle if I would just focus. It helps me realize that I am blocking God. There are other ideas in that chapter that are so very helpful, intriguing and yet simply written, so that anyone could understand them in their profundity.
I rarely keep books because I move from place to place for different reasons. Books are heavy and require space that I don''t always have, so very few are kept but this one is a keeper.

I am a mom with four little kids. I''m going to be real: I hardly ever read ANYTHING that has this many pages. But this book is so great that not only have I read it twice, I have to take the time to write a review, too!! This book is a travel memoir, a history lesson, a spiritual text and so much more. It is lighthearted and funny and well-researched and profoundly wise. It took me nearly a year to read it but it was a year well spent. So well spent, in fact, that I circled right back and started reading it again. The narratives shared in this story of Fr. Martin''s pilgrimage to the Holy Land broke open the Gospel in a new way to me. I felt like I was falling in love with Jesus all over again as I reflected on his life with new eyes and new ears. There were some pages where I had to just close the book and spend a few days pondering some knowledge bomb that Fr. Martin had just dropped. I love this book and would so highly recommend.

I''ve read several of Fr. Martin''s books and this one is possibly the best one of all. I''ve always wanted to visit Israel and take in the sites and reading this book, I feel like I''m there with him. He writes with such humor, wit and insight that it is hard to put this book down. Like the author says, this isn''t a theology book, but a book about his travels seen through the lens of his faith (as a Catholic and Jesuit priest) - but his writing is "down to earth" and accessible. He isn''t writing it just for Catholics or Christians necessarily, so I think anyone with an interest in the Jesus of history and/or Jesus of faith will find something to like here. I''ve never met Fr. Martin but I think he would be an excellent teacher and a fun person to travel with - and all of that comes out in this book. I just wish he could write books more quickly so we didn''t have to wait so long between them - ha ha!

Father Martin is such a gifted and blessed writer--that cannot be stated enough. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the way he weaves the sites that he visited on his pilgrimage with the accompanying site from the Bible in extraordinary detail. His Greek translations are insightful and thought-provoking, and his interpretation of Jesus''s feelings throughout the book most often struck a personal chord. "Thus, when he needs their support the most, Jesus is abandoned by his closest friends." Word. Father Martin shares intriguing and sometimes astonishing experiences during his pilgrimage, especially what occurred at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (Chapter 22).

In the Kindle version, there are no photos, so that is a disappointment. Still, Father Martin writes in such a way that you can envision and get a good feel for each place he visited.

You, Father Martin, are blessed in so many wonderful ways. Dare I label you a saint? Yeah, why not. You''re a saint! Don''t ever stop sharing your blessings.

I have never travelled to Jerusalem and have always wondered what it will be like to physically, emotionally and spiritually experience the places that I have come to be familiar with in the Bible?

Well, this book has been a most enlightening read for me.. as I was bought along by the author on his wonderful pilgrimage of the places that Jesus walked, prayed, ministered, and performed his miracles.. I love the fact that the author would also share the relevant bible passages for each setting, and to bridge each historical locality with a current experience discussion, thereby providing a devotional aspect to the book.

Although I was sorry to see the pilgrimage end, the book has also opened up a new journey for me... teaching me to read the bible anew now from another deeper perspective...

I am not generally a fan of books on spirituality. Theology and religious history, yes. Spirituality, no. And yet, Fr. Martin’s books strike a nice balance between the theology and history, and the meaning it has in his life, which he then eases into an examination of the reader’s life. For someone like me, it is the best kind of spiritual writing.

In this book, Fr. Martin examines the life of Jesus based on his reading of various gospel stories and a recent pilgrimage visit—his first, actually—to the Holy Land. The chapters basically follow the same general pattern. Fr. Martin and his traveling companion, George, visit a site in the Holy Land from Jerusalem to Bethlehem to the Sea of Galilee. We get a slice of their trip, the meaning it has to Fr. Martin, the connection to the gospels, a bit of theology, and the ways in which this part of Jesus’ life might have a more general spiritual meaning for the reader. Each chapter then finishes with the related gospel passage. It is a nice development.

On the other hand, if I’m being honest, Fr. Martin is not always the most effective writer. His decision to order the book by following events in the life of Jesus as opposed to the order of the places he went during his pilgrimage means that the book as a whole has an odd through line. It jumps around. It is better read as individual chapters, like meditations. Also, Fr. Martin’s constant reminders of how hot it was in the Holy Land come across as rather shallow and distracting.

Still, Fr. Martin is brilliant at weaving in anecdotes from his own experience to illustrate a point he is trying to make. It is a wonderful way to make the lessons of Jesus meaningful to a modern audience. And he has enough variety and experience in the “real world”—he didn’t become a Jesuit until after he’d worked a corporate job for a number of years—that he can sustain a number of different points. He is passionate and knowledgeable without being preachy.

I don’t know if this is the kind of book that will make converts; however, for someone with a Christian background or someone interested in Christianity, this book helps with understanding why Jesus has such a powerful effect on so many. It is the kind of book that can take almost anyone deeper into understanding their faith. That makes it very worthwhile.

Whether you''re making this pilgrimage for the first time or have trod this path many times, I can''t recommend this book enough - it is a welcoming read, both comfortable and comforting. Its insights are both revealing and relevant. I continue to refer to it during the Easter Octave and it will join the other books that supplement Mass readings throughout the year.

I loved this book. I read it slowly over a few months and found it a real blessing in my life. Beautifully written as both a description of their pilgrimage to the Holy Land, and interwoven with biblical references and commentary on the life of Jesus. I particularly liked how many of the ancient Hebrew and Greek were translated into plain English and helped to explain more of the historical context of the time. It brought back vivid memories of my own retreat pilgrimage only a few years ago and gave me much joy as I read this fascinating account.
