Quick Overview:

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. 

Have Christians rejected pilgrimage?

The Israelites knew it. David knew it. The writer of Hebrews knew it. John Bunyan knew it. "Blessed are those whose strength is in You. They have set their hearts on pilgrimage" (Psalm 84:5). We are strangers and pilgrims here. We're passing through this place, on a sacred journey to somewhere else. Charles Foster explores the approaching of each day as a pilgrimage--a chance to move one step closer to our ultimate goal and to experience tastes of that goal, even now, through prayerful awareness, study and meditation.

Culling from his many journeys across the globe, Foster exhibits the very definition of pilgrimage: a journey to the most holy locations of our faith. This is at once both internal and external, and the author shows us how the two intersect. 

A best-selling author and barrister in Oxford, Foster has spent much of his life testing the limits of human and spiritual endurance.
