5.0 out of 5 stars An adventure in Christian history and faith, April 7, 2007
This review is from: Sacred Travels: Recovering the Ancient Practice of Pilgrimage (Paperback)
This book is a treasure trove and a lens through which the sites of Christian history are illumined and brought to life. Characters from Augustine to Luther, from Benedict to Brother Roger, from Bunyan to Spurgeon speak and teach and preach, and we are placed in their company and allowed to listen and respond. Christian George is a master story teller, a word smith, a winsome companion along the road of Christian lore and legend, of history and mystery. He takes us by the hand with gusto and clear vision of his destination and abates all fears in the traveler by showing us his own vulnerability and subtle trepidation in the face of topography and divine presence. This book is both an invitation to go and see the way George does with his colorful, poetic, humorous perspective and a model for delving into the history of our Christian faith in the places of the heart. I recommend this book highly as a personal adventure in pilgrimage or for group exploration. Not only inveterate travelers or church history buffs, but also those whose faith has grown stale due to lacking circulation and exercise will find their muscles toned and their heart beat accelerated by these stories and testimonies spanning two thousand years of faith.
