Jesus : a pilgrimage by James Martin( Book )
7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 877 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"James Martin, SJ, gifted storyteller, editor at large of America magazine, popular media commentator, and New York Times bestselling author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything, brings the Gospels to life in Jesus: A Pilgrimage, and invites believers and seekers alike to experience Jesus through Scripture, prayer and travel. Combining the fascinating insights of historical Jesus studies with profound spiritual insights about the Christ of faith, Father Martin recreates the world of first-century Galilee and Judea to usher you into Jesus's life and times and show readers how Jesus speaks to us today. 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. The person at the heart of the Gospels can seem impossibly distant. Stories about his 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, hard to understand, and at times irrelevant. But in Jesus you will come to know him as Father Martin knows him: Messiah and Savior, as well as friend and brother"--

Publisher's description: In Awake My Soul, editor James Martin, S.J., offers a meaningful collection of fascinating essays focusing on devotions and their place in the life of contemporary believers. Originally published as part of a Lenten series in America magazine, the essays discuss a favorite devotion, its history, its place in an individual's life, and its role in the life of contemporary Catholics. Some of today's top Catholic writers celebrate many traditional Catholic devotions such as the rosary, the stations of the cross, holy water, novenas, relics, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and more. Contributors include Ron Hansen; Emilie Griffin; Joan Chittister, O.S.B.; and Eric Stoltz. Awake My Soul introduces the practice of devotions to a new generation, and shows how the tradition of prayer can help people regain a sense of the mystery at the center of the Catholic faith
