Danielle Shroyer went on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land at a time when she was tired of wordy prayers. She entered a church intending to pray only silently, focusing on the feeling of the place and God’s presence within it. What happened instead was that the Lord’s Prayer bubbled up, simple, open, and profound. Thus began a rhythm that lasted for two weeks of pilgrimage, as she traveled from place to place, each important for understanding the life of Jesus, praying the Lord’s Prayer again and again. The rich intersection of place, Bible, and prayer, deeply rooted in faith, provide the reader with an experience far beyond a simple tour of the Holy Land. It creates an atmosphere in which Jesus comes alive.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Danielle Shroyer has written a beautiful book, a wise book, a supremely interesting book, and a book that can help you do one of the most important and meaningful things in life … encounter God, as you are, wherever you are. —Brian D. McLaren, author/activist

“Danielle’s beautiful and wise ‘love letter to the Holy Land’ brought me right back to the smells, sounds, and textures of that extraordinary place, and it drew me into a deeper connection with the Lord’s Prayer along the way. This book is an invitation to walk with Jesus in a richer way, and I’ve learned from every step along that journey.” —Shauna Niequist, author of Bread & Wine and Savor.

As someone who regularly leads immersion trips to the Holy Land, I am familiar with the best resources available. Shroyer’s book now tops the list. She presents unexpected, new ways of viewing the places, and she centers it entirely around a conversation with Jesus. Highly recommended! —Jaime Clark-Soles, Associate Professor of New Testament, SMU Perkins School of Theology
