This review is for the book "Pilgrimage: My Journey to a Deeper Faith in the Land Where Jesus Walked" by Lynn Austin. I have read several of Lynn Austin's fiction novels and she's a great writer. This was different because Austin wrote this book based on a trip she took to the Holy Land. To be honest, I did feel as though some of the writings on the actual sightings were a bit tedious. But her thoughts - so deep and so thought-provoking! I am interested in the Holy Land and I did enjoy reading about it, but I enjoyed more reading how Austin was affected by everything she saw. Her honesty in what she learned about herself while there is what really kept me reading. She definitely made me look deeper at certain aspects of Christianity because she brought the Jewish viewpoint into it. I highly recommend this book.
Thank you to Bethany House for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
