Overview

The stirring collection of inspirational writings on pilgrimage spans the centuries -- and illuminates the experience for a growing number of spiritual travelers.

Throughout history, seekers have responded to the call of pilgrimage as an outward sign of their inner yearning for God. Perhaps it is no coincidence that at a time when Western culture is undergoing a further period of considerable change that pilgrimage should re-emerge to allow thoughtful men and women to travel with hope into the new millenium. Sacred Places, Pilgrim Paths chronicles that ancient tradition -- and bears inspiration for those drawn to the spiritual path.

For true pilgrims and armchair travellers alike, this absorbing anthology draws together writings on pilgrimage from the Bible, the Desert Fathers, medieval literature and more -- plus contemporary reflections of ordinary people searching for the deeper significance of the voyage. Topics like Preparing for the Journey, The Place of the Holy, A Hard Road, Visions of Eternity, The Journey Within and The Journey Beyond Cover the idea of spiritual journey in all its complexity.
