Overview

In the past few years pilgrimage-going to ancient holy sites in search of God-has become increasingly popular for people seeking to deepen their relationship with the Holy. Sister Cintra Pemberton seeks to enrich the experiences of today's pilgrims by helping them draw on the history of pilgrimage itself, as well as by suggesting particularly rich sites to visit. Part One of Soulfaring explores the history of pilgrimage, beginning in Celtic times, and moving through the early Christian period, the Middle Ages, and even the revival of pilgrimage today. Part Two explores fifteen sites in Wales, Ireland, Scotland, and the Isle of Man. Each of the descriptions of the various sites includes not only suggestions of what may be seen there, but the author's personal meditations on the experience of the Holy in each place.

Editorial Reviews

Anglican Theological Review
Based on her extensive experience as leader of popular Celtic pilgrimage tours, Pemberton's account is part travelogue, part spiritual journal, part guided meditation...Her anecdotes and observations are entertaining and historically informative, but in the end her goal is not amusement, but illumniation; not information, but transformation.
Dallas Morning News
...fascinating reading, even if your pilgrimage is just an armchair one.
The Living Church
Souflaring is an easy read, a wonderful exploration of holy sites for which many of us long.
