Many of us are intrigued by the idea of pilgrimage. This beautiful book encourages us to reflect on its meaning and to see our lives as a journey of discovery. After a short introduction, it is divided into nine sections: Setting Out, the Road, the Resting Place, the Pilgrim’s Load, Transformation, the Valley of Shadows, Wild Places, Following the Footsteps, and the Return. In this thought-provoking volume, Andrea Skevington combines her own thoughts on pilgrimage with quotations from a range of writers through the ages. The Pilgrim Spirit is illustrated with color photographs of pilgrim ways and sites around the world, including Santiago de Compostela, Lourdes, Iona, and St. Peter’s Square in Rome, as well as landscapes reflecting our search for truth and inspiration.
