Product Description

Imagine the holy land, over 2,000 years ago-a time shrouded in darkness and uncertainty. A young woman named Mary and her husband, Joseph, travel many miles to the village of Bethlehem. To passersby, they would seem all but ordinary. Now imagine the sheer, almost unfathomable magnitude of the secret task carried by this young couple. This is the journey of the people whom God selected for a most sacred purpose--to bring the Son of God, our Messiah, into the world.

In The Journey: Walking the Road to Bethlehem, Adam Hamilton shines fresh light on this vital story, integrating historical and archaeological information, and interweaving personal reflection to illuminate this most pivotal moment in history. Look deeper into the life and birth of Christ and gain insight into your own journey with the Lord, as you follow in the sacred footsteps of Mary, Joseph and others on the journey to Bethlehem.

Publisher's Weekly

It is undoubtedly a challenge to bring a fresh perspective to biblical texts that many Christians have heard in church and read countless times. But Hamilton (24 Hours That Changed the World), founding pastor of the Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kans., brings careful research, the perspective of an experienced minister, and an eye for detail to his work that will appeal to many. Beginning with the Gospel reading appropriate to his meditation, he draws on historical information as well as his own travels to take the reader on a spiritual walk, beginning with the angel Gabriel's annunciation to Mary that she will bear God's son and ending with the birth of Jesus in a manger in Bethlehem. Threaded with the stories of people he met along his way, and of others who have represented God's purposes in his own life, Hamilton also attempts to separate biblical facts, from a Protestant point of view, from traditions he appears to consider more speculative. While the writer doesn't break much new ground, the book serves as an inviting window into familiar texts that many Christians may be at risk for taking for granted-always a helpful exercise.

    I facilitated 3 different groups plus used children's book during sermon time and it was so wonderful. A variety of faith walks made discussion very meaningful at this time of the year. The books & dvd will go into our church library for use in the future for those who were not able to attend at this time.

    Adam Hamilton's "Journey" is a marvelous pilgrimmage with Mary and Joseph. His thought provoking study, which combines history, tradition, archeology, and spirituality. It will open eyes and probably shatter myths of our 'assumptions' of the familiar story. Study groups at our church were enriched and thoroughly enjoyed it. Hamilton possesses the wonderful ability of communicating deep truths in simple language. Highly recommended!

    We are using this in a variety of small group and Sunday School settings. It is a great tool for getting deeper into the history behind the birth of Christ.
