Believers seeking to find peace in troubled times have high praise for Ascension's blockbuster Bible study—Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life—filmed at 30+ sacred locations in the Holy Land.

WEST CHESTER, Penn., Sept. 30, 2020 /Christian Newswire/ -- When Catholic publisher "Ascension" released their Bible study Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life in February 2020, creators Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio, Jeff Cavins, and Dr. Edward Sri had no way of knowing that within a few short weeks Americans would be cut off from the Holy Land by the coronavirus pandemic. With most international flights grounded, many believers have been turning to domestic options to deepen their faith, and the Jesus Bible study is one resource receiving enthusiastic reviews.

"In all cases, we are hearing incredible stories of conversion and hope coming from a renewed sense of Our Lord's presence in the midst of these difficult times."

The impressive itinerary for this incredible "spiritual pilgrimage" includes holy sites such as Nazareth, Bethlehem, Jericho, Capernaum, Magdala, Jerusalem, and more.

Participants will come away with a rich exposure to the land that God Himself called "home."

    "The Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life book is really the very best I have ever read on the search for the Lord Jesus. I was so moved by its way of leading us into the mystery and understanding the process as it is written in the Bible. To understand that truth is just the greatest 'peace' we can get. I recommend [this] book and videos to everyone I can." [...]
