Product Description
Life of Jesus
by Francisco Fernandez-Carvajal
Hardcover

Few places in the world can boast of a story as interesting as that of the Holy Land. One of the main reasons why pilgrims set out for holy destinations is that they are longing to take a journey of transformation. As Christians, we are a pilgrim people. The pilgrim's physical (or spiritual) journey can "jumpstart" a spiritual transformation by momentarily leaving behind the world that is known.

Life of Jesus can serve as a spiritual retreat without having to journey to the Holy Land. However, it is an excellent preparation for any planned pilgrimage there.

Life of Jesus can provide answers to such questions as:
Can I experience a real encounter with Christ by reading about the physical places where God can be experienced in a uniquely powerful way, where the veil between heaven and earth is slowly lifted?
Can reading about these holy places have the power to transform me, just as the Sacraments do, by bringing me into closer contact with Christ?
Can I imagine standing where Christ stood, seeing the world he saw and briefly living in the region he knew?
Can I envision myself in the Gospel stories by journeying to the places where they occurred?
Can I ponder Jesus speaking to the multitudes that had gathered there on those hills, delivering his Sermon on the Mount?
Can contemplating these places and events help lead me on my own spiritual journey through this life?
Can I learn to better understand the person that Jesus wants me to become?

By reading the Life of Jesus, you can "journey" to the Holy Land and become aware of an almost overwhelming sense of God's presence. Such places of encounter become sites of pilgrimage-- in the physical sense as well as in the spiritual.
