The Road Less Traveled: Hunger For The Holy Land
Embark on an epic journey with Brandon Trones as he roams the Holy Land in search of the imprints of God's footsteps on Earth.
In 2003 a plan was hatched by Brandon Trones to trek to the Holy Land no matter what state it was in and search for tangible proof of the existence and message of Jesus, his followers, and the prophets that preceded them.
Two years later after much work and organization and proper coordination, he was finally prepared to embark upon the journey. But even if successful, physical proof in the eyes of the world might not be enough. This thought gave birth to the second aspect of the adventure: a forty-day fast. Since man recognizes the works of God in both physical and spiritual, Brandon would test both. The first goal: seek by any means necessary, tangible proof that support’s God’s Word, no matter the risk.
The second goal: test the intangible, spiritual elements of God through prayer and fasting. For 40 days Brandon searched for the imprints of God’s footsteps here on Earth. For 40 days he fasted, pushing himself repeatedly past the brink of exhaustion.
Hunger for the Holy Land represents the fruits of those labors; showing over 40 physical items and places that historically support the Bible as fact, twenty of which have never been filmed and presented before. But also showing Brandon’s trials, failures, and victories as he partakes in and extensively documents the effects of a spiritual fast coupled with extensive prayer and meditation.
This is truly a cutting edge documentary.

I am the sponsor of my public school's Christian club. A dad donated this video for the kids to watch. While the topic of fasting to get closer to God was interesting, and the tour through the Holy Land was fascinating, I was appalled at Brandon Trones' utter disregard for the laws of his host country. He documents himself smuggling in the camera to many places where it is forbidden, and shows himself climbing barricades and bribing officials to gain access to closed sites. His local guide, evidently a believer, was so disturbed by these actions that he eventually quit. Mr. Trones justifies his illegal and disrespectful activities at every turn, then declares that God has blessed his path. The earthquake that occured as he ate his first post-fast meal was taken as a sign of God's approval; it could just as well have been a mark of the Lord's dismay. Topics of discussion for my club after viewing this video: hypocrisy, our witness to others, spiritual blindness. Two thumbs down :-(

There is a misquote of scripture on this film saying Jesus jumped off a cliff to get away from a mob. We looked it up and The Holy Bible does not say what he's put on for reference. He's trying to be like Jesus but Jesus did a full fast and did not choose 4 different fasts. He does not respect authority and a Jewish guide leaves because of this fact. He isn't supposed to record, so do not do it. When you enter knowing this and do it anyway, you are disobeying and you are saying you agree when in fact you do not, so that constitutes lying and God says no liar shall enter the kingdom of God. There is also a scene in the beginning showing him in bed reading without proper clothing. 0/5 stars but had to write 1/5 otherwise they wouldn't allow the revue through. Glorify God, we were under the impression this was a Christ following website.

Good documentary on the Holy Land. Also is neat how he traveled for 40 days doing 4 different fasts. Great pictures of historical sights that you can't see on tours because they are off limits.
