"As Travis Scholl invites readers to join him in walking the labyrinth, he guides them not only along a spiraling path on the ground but also on a journey into the heart of Christian faith. Read and walk with him through these pages and discover new paths into Scripture and prayer."
"In this unique and refreshing guideforty reflections ideal for Lent or at any timereligion writer and seminary administrator Reverend Scholl combines the ancient spiritual discipline of walking the labyrinth with Mark's words on the life of Jesus. Each is a process of discovery, holding twists and turns, inviting contemplation and keen awareness. Each will prompt us to move ahead, to go deeper. And each has no ending."
"Travis Scholl has begun . . . to recover, for himself and for his reader, a taste for endlessness, a taste for the infinite. . . . Walking the labyrinth with our hearts in prayer becomes, then, a way of our recovering a provisional glimpse of the Way himself, his inexhaustible love, his exceedingly great joy in our following him, now and ever."
"Travis Scholl contributes a thorough model for those of us who have little experience with the discipline of walking a labyrinth. . . . This is a heart-provoking book!"
"This book invites its readers into a close and mindful reading of Mark's gospel, to find and ponder riches not seen or stopped for before. But it also does the same for the unfolding existence of the crucified, risen, and living followers of Christ who've grown too comfortable with easy answers or personal and cultural certainties. It is as beautiful in its writing as it is brutal in its honest assessments. Provocative discoveries abound for one to meditate upon and walk through every twist and turn along the way. . . . Part of IVP's Formatio series, which seeks to foster the church's rich tradition of spiritual formation through transformation by Christ and conformity to his image, Walking the Labyrinth makes a worthy and welcome contribution."
"By blending historical and literary background with gospel insight Scholl offers an accessible guide for a 40-day Lenten journey Walking the Labyrinth any day and every day. Along with 40 meditations linked with specific verses in Mark's gospel, the book has brief instructions for 'Ways to Walk the Labyrinth,' five references for further reading on labyrinths, and three references for Mark study. This is a useful guide for both novices and experienced labyrinth walkers."
"This book offers a meditative look at spirituality and the spiritual disciplines of prayer and mindfulness. . . . Certainly those that choose to use this book as a Lenten guide will find it valuable. This book would be valuable in almost any library, but church and parish libraries may find it to be particularly worthwhile."
