    Wonderful walk through the life of Jesus with Pastor Adam Hamilton. A travel log through Israel and many of its holiest shrines (The Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Sea of Galilee, a synagogue in Capernaum and so much more! There is an accompanying DVD that I have yet to see but look forward to viewing.). Moreover, the book is a scholarly, yet easy to read pastoral look at Jesus' ministry as he traveled the land. It's almost as if the reader becomes part of the entourage. All of Pastor Hamilton's Wonderful walk through the life of Jesus with Pastor Adam Hamilton.

    Like all of Hamilton’s books, this one is eminently readable, a simply written telling of Jesus’s 3-year ministry, told as a companion to the Gospels. Part of a series, along with Journey to Bethlehem and Twenty-Four Hours that Changed the World, The Way completes a set that recounts the entirety of Jesus’s life on Earth. Highly recommended, as I do with all of Hamilton’s books.

    Good, but not enough depth without the accompanying videos. Those made the book for me. Read it as part of a Lenten study group.

    Adam Hamilton has written a book about his travels to the places described in the four gospels in an attempt to put the life of Jesus Christ in a fresh perspective. He is successful. This book has six chapters that are based on the geography of Israel: (1) the Jordan River and the wilderness, where Jesus was baptized and tempted, (2) Capernaum, where Jesus healed, (3) the mountains, from which Jesus proclaimed the kingdom, (4) the Sea of Galilee, where Jesus calmed the storm, (5) Samaria, where Adam Hamilton has written a book about his travels to the places described in the four gospels in an attempt to put the life of Jesus Christ in a fresh perspective. He is successful. This book has six chapters that are based on the geography of Israel: (1) the Jordan River and the wilderness, where Jesus was baptized and tempted, (2) Capernaum, where Jesus healed, (3) the mountains, from which Jesus proclaimed the kingdom, (4) the Sea of Galilee, where Jesus calmed the storm, (5) Samaria, where Jesus associated with sinners and outcasts, and (6) Jerusalem, where Jesus experienced his final week culminating with his crucifixion and resurrection. Each chapter summarizes a part of Jesus’ ministry in a thought-provoking way, and the author inserts many photographs, facts, anecdotes and insightful analyses that help link the modern Israel to the Israel of Jesus’ time. If I had to pick the most meaningful chapter, I would pick the last chapter. The author emphasizes the importance of Holy Week by pointing out that the four Gospels devote between 20% (Luke) and 47% (John) to this week. Like many, if not all, Christians, I experience some doubt, and this chapter deals with our questions in a helpful way. Particularly intriguing is the author’s discussion with a Jewish tour guide. This tour guide loved the teachings of Jesus and everything else about Him, but was not a Christian because he could not believe in the Resurrection. The author writes that he encouraged the tour guide to continue to ponder the Resurrection’s meaning. This is a good response, but incomplete. Mr. Hamilton probably should have told his guide that Jesus claimed to be the Son of God who would be killed and resurrected (John 2:19, Matthew 16:21 and other scriptures), so embracing the teachings of Jesus inexorably leads to accepting the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is useful to experience the video that is associated with this book. Watching the video and seeing the author show where much of the Gospel takes place, from baptism in the Jordan River to burial at the site of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, makes the events more vivid and stimulates a desire to see these sites myself. It is also helpful to encounter this material and wrestle with questions with a group, and I am thankful that I had the opportunity to do that with my church this past Lenten Season.

    I feel badly about giving the book only 3 stars (liked it) instead of 4 stars (really liked it). It's only because I have admired Adam Hamilton for over a decade, have read many of his books, listened to many of his sermons, and attended many of his Leadership Institutes; and this book, while excellent, didn't add much to what I already know and appreciate about Adam Hamilton. The biggest new take-away from this book for me was his "tour-guide" approach to retelling the Gospel story.

The biggest new take-away from this book for me was his "tour-guide" approach to retelling the Gospel story. The way he described the landscape and the architecture of the places Jesus walked brought them to life for me. Additionally, Hamilton has a winsome, almost child-like, way of retelling the Gospel stories. And so he imagines John the Baptist and Jesus playing together as children; he imagines what Jesus thought as he walked along the shoreline of the Sea of Galilee; he tries to get into the heart of Jesus as he healed people, loved outcasts, and wept over Jerusalem. And while all of that is speculation, what his speculating did was help me feel a little less jaded by years of laboring in institutionalized churches and fall in love again with the Jesus in whose footsteps I am trying to follow. Of all the things he wrote in this devotional, this is the one that stood out for me: "The only time we find Jesus angry toward sin is when religious people act in self-righteous ways or when they fail to respond to those in need." Hamilton has a heart for "sinners, outcasts, and the poor." He build his church on the foundation of serving "non-religious and nominally religious" people. I for one admire his walk.

    Another excellent Lenten study from Hamilton I read this as part of a study group, so I was fortunate to be able to see the video as well. I also read the devotional during the same time. I had previously read 24 Hours That Changed the World and loved it, so I was excited to read this. Both books are excellent reading for the Lent season, making you really consider the story of Jesus's ministry and final week. Hamilton has a very easy writing style,and never claims to know it all.

He certainly can get you thinking. Isn't that the point of Lent? I appreciated the history of the time, the geology lesson so to speak that Hamilton used to clarify Jesus's ministry. It was interesting to read about the topography, customs, etc. The only reason I give this 4 instead of 5 stars is because it did not strike me as powerfully as 24 Hours did. Happy to have it though to alternate each year as my Lenten study.

    A book to be read again and again. It tells about Jesus life in a way to which I could relate, and told about the actual areas of Isreal where he lived and how those areas are today. I was most impressed with Hamilton's ideas for getting rid of demons on pages 59 and 60. People had demons in the time of Jesus and probably may still have them. He also reminded again and again that Jesus hung out with the low life people. Do we? How do we treat them? Are all our friends Christians? How is that? Ma A book to be read again and again.

    Favorite parts--Being ready for Christ's return means: taking care of other servants as the master commanded, trusting him and doing his work,faithfully using the resources He has given you for his purposes. Those who will be blessed with eternal life are those who fed the hungry, gave drink to the thirsty, welcomed the stranger, clothed the naked, cared for the sick, and visited the prisoner. I liked that this was an easy to understand account of the gospels as they pertain to Jesus' teaching, Favorite parts--Being ready for Christ's return means: taking care of other servants as the master commanded, trusting him and doing his work,faithfully using the resources He has given you for his purposes.

    This is a little book (167 pages) that is worth reading. Dr.Hamilton, a Methodist minister of a mega church in Kansas, does an excellent job of historically referencing the events and places written about in the New Testament. I learned a lot, about the times, the region, the people. It brought a new richness to familiar texts. He also adds vivid descriptions of what the region looks like now, the reader gets a sense of what going on a Holy Land Tour would be like. Well done!

    Perhaps it was because I was a Bible College student that this book does not stand out that much to me. It takes the reader on the journey of Jesus, paying particular attention to the landscape and background influences of Jesus' time. While I enjoy the descriptions of the topography to some extent I also find it a bit bland, although there are times that the author has good insight that gets me thinking.

    A beautifully written, very moving account of the life and ministry of Jesus. It is a combination of pastoral skill and insight, as well as scholarly research, as he documents places and events in Palestine and Jesus' travels and works. Mr. Hamilton does a thoroughly excellent job of explaining how and why we should be walking in the footsteps of Jesus. This is a life-changing book for me, presented so forthright and clear with honest answers and real explanations. A beautifully written, very moving account of the life and ministry of Jesus.

    Our church is using this book for a Lenten class lasting five weeks. It's only in its second week, but it was hard to put it down until finished. It is enhanced by the videos that accompany the book; Rev. Hamilton visits the locations in Israel where Jesus carried out his ministry. I really like Rev. Hamilton's writing style and how he adds interesting facts to Jesus' story that have not been part of what I've known previously about his life, death, and resurrection.

    I plan on leading a study group with this book during Lent 2016. As always, I find Adam Hamilton insightful. The videos that accompany the book helped to bring the material to life and I would definitely see them as a vital and integral part of the book as a whole. Informational and inspirational.

    An excellent book that combines cogent information about the Holy Land with keen insight into the scriptures. I lead a Bible study for a group of lifelong Christians -- a group of mature believers -- and it's a real challenge to find material that doesn't repeat stuff they've all heard before. This book and the companion DVD rose to the challenge. An excellent book that combines cogent information about the Holy Land with keen insight into the scriptures.

    Another excellent book by Hamilton. Takes the reader through the three years of ministry by Jesus. Answers the question of what kind of savior Jesus is and guides us in how we can follow His ways. Anxious to lead a study using this book and the accompanying video filmed on location in the Holy Land.

    I am not a fan of Hamilton's but I have read several of his books, mostly in small group. This was the least of the lot. And the whole nonsense of the land being considered the fifth gospel. Sure some seminaries teach that, but its crap. I am not a fan of Hamilton's but I have read several of his books, mostly in small group. This was the least of the lot.
