jesus bookBest-selling author and Jesuit priest James Martin, SJ, has published a new book, Jesus: A Pilgrimage (HarperCollins, 2014), that offers readers a unique look at both the human emotions and divine activities of Jesus. According to the publisher, the book is a bold retelling of the Gospels that is faithful to the Christian tradition. It brings together the most up-to-date Bible scholarship, spiritual insights, and lighthearted stories about Fr. Martin’s travels through the Holy Land where he visited the most significant sites in the life of Jesus. Listen to Fr. Martin discuss his new book in this video and offer the Top 10 Things to Know about Jesus. Fr. Martin’s previous publications include The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything, My Life with the Saints, and Between Heaven and Mirth: Why Joy, Humor, and Laughter Are at the Heart of the Spiritual Life. He is also an editor-at-large at America magazine. Fr. Martin graduated from the Weston Jesuit School of Theology, which reaffiliated with Boston College in 2008 to form the School of Theology and Ministry (STM) at Boston College. In a recent column for America magazine, he thanked several scholars– including STM’s Richard Clifford, SJ and Thomas Stegman, SJ–who helped him as he wrote his book.
