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.

    "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!

    "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

    "Highly Recommend"
    What did you love best about Jesus?

    Fr. James Martin is a gifted (and blessed) teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed his explanation of the story of Jesus.


    Have you listened to any of James Martin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to both Between Heaven and Mirth and The Lives of the Saints. This book is as compelling and enjoyable.

    "Great book"

    Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. It made me feel like I was on pilgrimage with them and made me realize that I am not spending enough time finding "my Jesus."

    "An Awesome Journey"

    I loved how Fr. James took me on his journey and made me feel as though I was with him in the Holy Land. I look forward to the day that I can actually visit in person, God willing.

    "Wonderful visit to the Holy Land"

    This book was recommended to me by a friend that is now inspired to travel to the Holy land. I loved this book and the way it ties the Gospel to the actual sites. The contemplative subjects are wonderful and will give me years of subject to focus on. I highly recommend this book

    "Beautiful and personal"

    The author travels to Israel to give us a recount of the gospel as he visits the holy sites and provides the context of language, tradition and culture in 1st century Palestine.

    It is a beautiful book, which will open your eyes to parts of the gospel you had not understood before. A recommended read for any follower of Jesus.
