Overview

Tom Wright explores all the sites that travelers usually visit on a tour of the Holy Land, explaining not only what is to be seen but also the context of faith that makes these sites, and the events associated with them, famous around the world. By weaving together Old and New Testament stories, poetry, and original insights, Wright helps readers enter imaginatively into each scene. He also sprinkles his narratives with reflections on the nature of pilgrimage generally and with discussion of vital contemporary issues related to the Holy Land.

Editorial Reviews

Christian Ministry
Whether or not one is going on a pilgrimage, this book enriches one's journey of faith and faithfulness.
Cathedral Age
"A welcome guide.... This sage little work serves not only as an introduction to the practice of pilgrimage but also, by design, as "a refresher course, from an unusual angle, on what might be called 'Christian basics.'" Using locations in the Holy Land where Jesus walked, talked, and healed, Wright takes the reader on a virtual pilgrimage, combining biblical scholarship with catechesis and inspirational challenge."
