5.0 de 5 estrelas One of My Favorites 22 de novembro de 2014
Por Anthropology Student - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
For centuries, Christians have flocked to Israel and Palestine to “walk where Jesus walked”; today this flourishes with modern travel, drawing even those who have never left North America. The pilgrimage is an intensive, mysterious journey in which Christians move far outside of their regular lives into a world that collides past, present, and future to create meaning and direct lives. Hillary Kaell seeks to uncover who these travelers are, the reasoning behind their trips, and their takeaways through her ethnographic study shared in “Walking Where Jesus Walked”.
As a non-Christian and non-American, Kaell joins several American groups as they prepare for and participate in Christian tours. She conducts multiple interviews before, during, and after the trip with pilgrims and observes their actions and responses throughout the trip.
Kaell uses everything from souvenirs to music to explore how pilgrims used the trip to define their relationships “both human and divine” (198). Israel is the “enduring material trace- what Jesus touched and saw- that renders effective [pilgrim’s] attempts to feel his presence” that validates his or her faith in a world of reason. Moreover, Kaell finds that travelers attempt to heal earthly relationships through the intensive experience as well as symbolize global unity.
In seeking the why, who, and what of pilgrimage, Kaell effectively delivers. As one who has participated in a tour and temporarily lived in Jerusalem to observe “outsider” tourists, I see that Kaell draws insight from even the details. Striking a perfect balance of professionalism and humanizing, Kaell analyzes their experience without undermining their realities.
Feeling as though you are journeying through the Holy Land alongside the pilgrims, Kaell offers insight for the pilgrim experience in a wonderfully crafted narrative. Her conclusions are important to Christians in our understanding of experienced faith as we continually learn and grow.

4.0 de 5 estrelas Religious pilgrimage to the Holy Land has been a part ... 6 de outubro de 2014
Por Gregory Conarroe - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle
Religious pilgrimage to the Holy Land has been a part of the Christian experience since at least the 4th Century. However, the industrialization of the West has increased travel capabilities and decreased travel costs; consequently American Christians are now able to make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land with relative ease. Anthropologist Hillary Kaell studies the Christian leisure industry with a focus on pilgrimage. She addresses the question: what shapes pilgrim’s experiences of the Holy Land?

Kaell’s research took the forms of closely observing seven Holy Land tour groups of both Roman Catholic and Evangelical Protestant backgrounds, and conducting numerous interviews with pilgrims, priests, pastors, and professional guides. With a keen eye towards “the intersection of religious pilgrimage and commercial leisure, the interplay between global travel and relationships at home, and the dynamic tension between transcendent divinity and material evidence, (Kaell 2014:4)” Kaell argues that pilgrims engage their faith in new ways by confronting such aspects of Christian modernity and thus, “reconfirm and embody a relationship with God… (198).”

The strength of Kaell’s research lies in methodological approach of studying pilgrims before, during, and after their trips and in her understanding of the religious experience. Her self-identification as a person “with a religion (23)” allows her to acknowledge pilgrim’s relationships with the divine as legitimate. Researcher and interlocutor do indeed “co-create” the narrative (19). Despite her methodological strengths, the scope of her research is limited. Holy Lands pilgrimages will undoubtedly have lasting effects on pilgrims and I wonder if she has only scratched the surface of what those effects may be.

Walking Where Jesus Walked is an honest representation of American Christian pilgrimage, taking into account the tensions between pilgrimage and leisure, travel vs. home life, and divine encounter vs. ordinary circumstance. The quality of Kaell’s work reflects the thorough nature of her research.
