On the centenary of the Balfour Declaration, which was also the fiftieth anniversary of the since the Six-day War and the tenth anniversary of the Blockade of Gaza, Justin Butcher—along with ten other companions (and another hundred joining him at points along the way)—walked from LondontoJerusalemas an act of solidarity, penance, and hope.

Weaving in history of the Holy Land as he moves across Europe, from Balfour and Christian Zionism,tocolonialism andJerusalemSyndrome, from desert spiritualitytothe lives of his fellow travelers,WalkingtoJerusalemis a chronicle of serendipity, the hilarious, the infuriating, and, occasionally, an encounter with the Divine.
