A Hitchhiker’s Guide to Jesus: Reading the Gospels on the Ground

Book description

This is the story of Norm, a precocious college graduate, who journeys to the Land called Holy to learn whether he can follow Jesus as a disciple and study him as a student at the same time. Will Norm’s personal convictions or his irrepressible curiosity win out? Will his head or his heart rule the day? Will it be certitude or agnosticism? I wrote this book after years of studying and following Jesus, and helping students to cherish good questions even when answers prove elusive.

Beautiful illustrations and study notes.


Bruce Fisk (Ph.D., Duke) taught undergraduate students in the U.S. and Canada for a quarter century, as often as possible in the Holy Land. Since 2018 he has been a scholar-nomad based in Peru.
