Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Christian Travel Planner" makes it possible to plan a trip around specific interests, including tours of biblical areas, retreats, pilgrimages and missionary work, as well as vacations that incorporate stops at religious sites throughout Europe and the United Kingdom. Author Kevin J. Wright, the founder of the World Religious Travel Association, has organized the planner in a logical way, starting with the reasons for going to a particular area, the religious significance of the sites, the time and logistics involved, and the costs. He also offers relevant Bible passages and historical information, as well as practical tips, such as his suggestion for taking warm clothing if you plan to hike to the top of Mount Sinai in Egypt in the early morning, as it can be chilly even in the summer. Helpful websites, lodging recommendations and other activity options in each area round out this thorough guide. Kyle Wagner -- Denver Post, April 3, 2008

Since the World Tourist Organization estimates that more than 300 million people embark on some sort of religious travel each year, spending more than $18 billion in the process, it makes sense that Christians would want to seek out a guidebook meeting their needs. This extensive book by author Kevin Wright offers a variety of ways Christians can enjoy travel experiences, including pilgrimage tours, mission trips and conference cruises. There is information on service and short-term mission trips or tips on faith attractions such as The Holy Land Experience in Orlando, Fla., California Spanish Missions or the Creation Museum outside Cincinnati. Chapters include how to plan travel, touring biblical lands, cruises, Christian events and Christian Attractions. Resources such as Christian travel Web sites and resources, trip planning tools and travel ministry resources are found in the appendix. There are even testimonials from people who have participated in some of the suggested trips. -- The Salt Lake Tribune, March 8, 2008
