Product Description

Have Christians altogether rejected the practice of pilgrimage? When so many of our faithful bretheren before us have taken up the practice, why have so many all but abandoned the idea? The Sacred Journey is the last in Thomas Nelson's Ancient Practices Series. Here Charles Foster takes a deep and engaging look at the history, anthropology, theology and devotional worth of pilgrimage. Drawing deeply upon his own wanderings across the globe, Foster shows us how a journey to the most holy locations of our faith can deepen our prayerful awareness and strengthen our spiritual endurance.

Publisher's Description

“When Yahweh became a man, he was a homeless vagrant. He walked through Palestine proclaiming that a mysterious kingdom had arrived...He called people to follow him, and that meant walking.”
— Charles Foster

Humans are built to wander. History is crisscrossed by their tracks. Sometimes there are obvious reasons for it: to get better food for themselves or their animals; to escape weather, wars, or plague. But sometimes they go—at great expense and risk—in the name of God, seeking a place that feels sacred, that speaks to the heart.

God himself seems to have a bias toward the nomad. The road is a favored place — a place of epiphany.

That’s all very well if you are fit and free. But what if you are paralyzed by responsibility or disease? What if the only journey you can make is to the office, the school, or the bathroom?

Best-selling English author and adventurer Charles Foster has wandered quite a bit, and he knows what can be found (and lost) on a sacred journey. He knows that pilgrimage involves doing something with whatever faith you have. And faith, like muscle, likes being worked.

Exploring the history of pilgrimage across cultures and religions, Foster uses tales of his own travels to examine the idea of approaching each day as a  pilgrimage, and he offers encouragement to anyone who wants to experience a sacred journey. The result is an intoxicating, highly readable blend of robust theology and lyrical anecdote — an essential guidebook for every traveler in search of the truth about God, himself, and the world.

When Jesus said “Follow me,” he meant us to hit the road with him. The Sacred Journey will show you how.

The Ancient Practices

There is a hunger in every human heart for connection, primitive and raw, to God. To satisfy it, many are beginning to explore traditional spiritual  disciplines used for centuries . . . everything from fixed-hour prayer to fasting to sincere observance of the Sabbath. Compelling and readable, the Ancient Practices series is for every spiritual sojourner, for every Christian seeker who wants more.
