Biblical scholar and seasoned pilgrimage guide Stephen J. Binz offers an up-to-date handbook for experiencing the sites of the Holy Land as a disciple of Jesus. Whether contemplating future travel, on the road of pilgrimage, savoring memories of a past trip, or journeying in mind and heart from an armchair, readers will explore the nature of pilgrimage and encounter the places of the Holy Land from a biblical, historical, meditative, and prayerful perspective. This guide will enable Christians to walk in the footsteps of Jesus, confident that their pilgrimage will be both an educational journey and a transforming spiritual experience. Full-color illustrations throughout!
"This latest work of Stephen Binz is the fruit of thirty years of exploring the Holy Land as both a pilgrim and a biblical scholar. With its rich introduction to the notion of Christian pilgrimage, its numerous photos (expertly taken by the author himself), and, especially, its evocative and well-informed descriptions of key regions and places connected with the biblical story, this is wonderfully accessible resource. It can serve as an excellent orientation both for those getting ready to visit the Holy Land or those who can travel there only in their imaginations." Donald Senior, CP, President-Emeritus, Professor of New Testament, Catholic Theological Union, Chicago, Illinois "Traveling as a tourist is different from traveling as a pilgrim. In Holy Land Pilgrimage, Stephen Binz takes us on a spiritual journey-a true pilgrimage. While touching on the important biblical and historical aspects of the Fifth Gospel, Stephen incorporates the spiritual so well, with intimate reflections and his beautiful photography. Enter the Land of Emmanuel. You'll never be the same!" Gus Lloyd, author of A Minute in the Church, Host of Seize the Day radio program "I have lived in the Holy Land my entire life, steeped in its history, yet found information in Holy Land Pilgrimage that enlightened my understanding of places I walk by daily. I have appreciated the opportunity to get to know Stephen Binz when he brings groups on pilgrimage, and I greatly admire his concern about and dedication to the Christians of the Holy Land. The recognition and support Stephen Binz brings through his work assures us that we will not be forgotten and will be kept in the prayers of our brothers and sisters worldwide, whom we look forward to meeting when they visit the Holy Land." Shibly Kando, Holy Land coordinator Select to Give Foundation, Bethlehem-based Christian cooperative "A marvelous guide for pilgrims to the Holy Land that combines history, personal reflection, and prayers and meditations designed for the holy sites. Stephen Binz's inviting and accessible book will be a great asset to anyone wanting to explore the land often known as the Fifth Gospel." James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage "In Stephen J. Binz's latest book, Holy Land Pilgrimage, the veteran guide to the bible lands and consummate scripture scholar invites the reader to traverse the land made holy by God's unique revelation here. First situating the virtual traveler within the religious context of pilgrimage for ancient Israel and later Christianity, the author then offers a historical introduction to the most significant sites, followed by helpful meditations. All this is punctuated with the author's full-color photos, making the work not only informative but beautiful. It is no small task to distill two-thousand years of history on the holy sites into a readable and inspirational format, but Binz has successful done just that." Laurie Brink, OP, Professor of New Testament Studies, Catholic Theological Union, Chicago, Illinois
