"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
