“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.

Editorial Reviews

“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

“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

“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
