Publisher's Description

We all encounter times when our spirit feels dry, when doubt looms.

The opportunity to tour Israel came at a good time. For months, my life has been a mindless plodding through necessary routine, as monotonous as an all-night shift on an assembly line. Life gets that way sometimes, when nothing specific is wrong but the world around us seems drained of color. Even my weekly worship experiences and daily quiet times with God have felt as dry and stale as last year's crackers. I'm ashamed to confess the malaise I've felt. I have been given so much. Shouldn't a Christian's life be an abundant one, as exciting as Christmas morning, as joyful as Easter Sunday?

With gripping honesty, Lynn Austin pens her struggles with spiritual dryness in a season of loss and unwanted change. Tracing her travels throughout Israel, Austin seamlessly weaves events and insights from the Word . . . and in doing so finds a renewed passion for prayer and encouragement for her spirit, now full of life and hope.

    MY THOUGHTS

    The author let us take a tour of Israel with her, somewhere I probably will never see!! She has a great knowledge of the Bible and of Israel! She makes you feel like you are there with her!

    If you are struggling in your faith this is a good book to read, Lynn talks about the dryness and what she did about it!! So this book would be great if you are going to be going to Israel this would be a great tour guide!!

    I also like how she starts out with a verse and ends with a prayer in each chapter!

    I've read some of her other books and have always enjoyed her style of writing!!

    I could relate to some of the things she talked about, such as grown children moving away, when you think they will always be close around! Somethings you have to get used to and resigned too!

    Just like we need water to survive physically we need God to survive spiritually!!

    Chapter 11 Sabbath Rest

    On the Sabbath we remember to rest on God, trusting Him for all our practical needs such as our daily bread and for strength in our trials. The Sabbath helps us to remember to rest in God!!Trusting Him for our salvation, knowing that none of the work we do will ever gain us entrance int heaven!!

    Thank you Lord for my children and reminding me that they aren't mine but yours, and that you want what is best for them and are fighting for their souls!!!

    Disclosure: This book was given to me for free from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.

    I received a review copy of this book from Bethany House, but all thoughts are my own!

    I love the idea behind this book. I've never read anything quite like it. As I made my way through the pages, I realized that I was beginning to feel like I was also on a trip. I've never actually been to the places mentioned in the book, but after reading, I feel like I have!

    If you've been, read about Austin's journey for another visit...If you've never been or are kicking around the idea of going, I think you'll enjoy hearing about the story of someone who has!

    I grew up watching Reading Rainbow - as I read Austin's book, I really did go on a journey of my own, right from the comfort of my own home!

    I don't read a lot of non-fiction. I would much rather read something with a good storyline, characters, a plot. But when I read the description of Pilgrimage, I was instantly intrigued. For years I have had something of an obsession with Israel, and the opportunity to read and review a book about an author's spiritual journey during her time there? I just couldn't pass it up.

    Within the first chapter, Lynn Austin had caught not only my attention, but also my heart and soul. It seemed like the book had been written just for me. The issues she was struggling with-- adapting to change, feeling adrift in her relationship with God, desiring a deeper faith-- I was struggling with too. And as I read, I was traveling with her through Israel, seeing the sites and feeling old familiar Bible stories come alive in new ways. As I read the scripture verses she included, I learned with her all the lessons God was teaching her. And I can honestly say my faith has been positively impacted by Pilgrimage. My copy of the book is highlighted and marked so that I can flip through and easily find the passages that influenced me. And to me, that is the mark of a truly great book-- if it impacts you enough that you don't want to forget what it taught you.

    I recommend Pilgrimage to everyone. It may not touch each of you in the same way it touched me, but I believe that it will still impact your life and you will walk away from it changed in at least some small way.

    I received this book free from Bethany House publishers as part of their blogger book review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions expressed are my own.

    SUMMARY:

    In a time of her own spiritual struggles, monotony and mindless motions, Lynn Austin receives the opportunity to tour Israel. Learning through tours of the sites of the people from Biblical times, she realizes how difficult those people lived as well how much faith and trust were needed. With this new enlightening knowledge, Lynn reflects on her own life concerning worship, trust and faith.

    A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:

    Written in a journal-like form, the author attempts to invite the readers to consider their own personal faith in God; however, perhaps too much focus is given to her own life rather than generalizing for others to find a renewed focus on God. The concept is wonderful, the opportunity must have been fantastic_definitely an idea worth expounding upon even further. Often things (including God) are taken for granted; sometimes it takes a new environment to remind us what we all are blessed to experience within our own lives, including our faith.

    RATING:

    3.5 (out of 5) pennies

    Lynn is just about my most favorite author. I can hardly wait to get my hands on her latest novel. That being said, I have to be honest and say that I had a difficult time picking "Pilgrimage" up and finishing it.

    Since I have been to the Holy Land, I was able to relate to her vivid descriptions. I appreciated her honesty and her ability to tie her emotions together physically and spiritually and relate them to the land of Israel.

    The book, however, felt dry and flat and lacked the continuity of her novels. Perhaps, that was an unintended consequence of writing about her spiritual dryness because "Pilgrimage" left me feeling dry and flat. If she wanted to convey that sense, that feeling, she did an admirable job. I truly struggled with writing a review, an honest review. I am certain that this was something of an Opus Magnum for her and encourage Lynn to not give up with this genre of writing. She is such a gifted writer and her novels have brought me much encouragement and insight.
