    Pilgrims of the Alley proves to be a book that everyone should a

    Pilgrims of the Alley proves to be a book that everyone should add to their reading list! Dave Arnold draws from his experience as a pastor, worship leader, church planter, world relief refugee and child of God to draw the reader into a better understanding of how no matter what social class or situation a person finds themselves in, each of us is useful for the Kingdom. It's amazing how both refreshing and challenging this book is.




    The author does an incredible job drawing from scripture, people he's encountered, stories to draw the reader into the narrative that we are sojourners in a foreign land. I guarantee this book will allow you to make advancements in your understanding of God's loving pursuit.
