Summary

Dreams. Nightmares. Religion. Revolution. Divinity. Evil. Temptation. Hope. Murder. Mysticism. Faith. Oppression. Memories. Visions. Passion. History. Lies. Truth. Forgiveness.In the spring of 1996, James Campion immersed himself in the thorny subject of humanity's mad pursuit of an origin and purpose to existence. Intrigued by the life and teachings of philosophical and spiritual leaders over the centuries and fueled by a questioning of his devout Catholic background lead to a natural exploration of Jesus Christ from revolutionary vagabond to religious icon. Carving out images from his past and passionately delving into the gospel legend prompted a tireless journey to the Holy Land. Across the desert, in the footsteps of the mysterious, inside the mind and out of the heart, the results of his trek are found in the introspective and controversial pages of Trailing Jesus. It is more than a true story of self-discovery and Biblical revelations. It is literally a lifetime dissected in a single trip. Mostly it is an emotional investigation of one of the most enigmatic spiritual leaders in the pantheon of human experience; a controversial view of Jesus of Nazareth, the peasant messiah whose spiritual revolution is still prevalent after two thousand years. The Greatest Story Ever Told is understood quite differently through the eyes of an author in search of spirit and wonder in a violently cold world.Trailing Jesus is a major work for the 21st century. It topples icons, punctures dogma and resuscitates the memory of a movement so influential it has spanned two millennium of speculation and debate, infatuation and worship, war and bigotry, power and compassion. Trailing Jesus is not the voice of a scholar or a theologian or even a religious apologist, just the brutal honesty of a man in search of a revolutionary mystic from a time seemingly so far away, yet so very close to the very marrow of human kind. James Campion's third book, Trailing Jesus - A Holy Journal is a must read for the faithful, the doubtful, and the just plain curious.
