BOOK REVIEW: FR. JAMES MARTIN'S JESUS: A PILGRIMAGE





Here's a book review of Fr. James Martin, S.J.'s latest: JESUS: A PILGRIMAGE.

An excerpt:

"Thus, we learn what Jesus ate: grains, vegetables, fruits, olives, lentil stew, salted fish, pita bread. We learn what Jesus wore: likely a tunic, loincloth and linen or woolen cloak. We learn of the abysmal sanitary conditions in first-century Nazareth. We learn, interestingly, that Jesus might have owned his own home (from which the friends of the paralytic possibly tore off the roof so as to lower him down to be healed).

“Jesus saw this!' Father Martin keeps thinking. 'Jesus saw this!' "
