About the Book

The Journey Home, although technically fiction, has it seed in actual events and a real friendship the Rabbi had with Christian pastor Jamie Buckingham.

The Journey Home is Eckstein’s personal testimony. It is in almost every respect a true store set against a fictitious backdrop of a walk with Jamie Buckingham in the Holy Land. Through that walk together, each one finally arrives at his own destination and finds his own spiritual fulfillment in a surprising way. Each proves an inspiration to the other, while remaining true to his own faith. Each grows profoundly within his own unique spiritual tradition, and so, in separate but parallel ways returns home.

The Journey Home tells the remarkable story of two spiritual struggles, one of a proud Jew seeking fulfillment and one of a Christian whose faith is in need of renewal. It is a compelling spiritual quest for completion and rest in God, in which Jew and Christian lean upon and support each other in wonderful ways.
