The Way of the Lord: Christian Pilgrimage Today
N. Tom Wright
From The Publisher:
The Way of the Lord is a book to be read with Christian pilgrimage in mind, whether one is traveling to the Holy Land physically or merely in heart and mind. Tom Wright, a world-renowned expert on the New Testament and the life of Jesus, offers a guide to pilgrimage that also serves as an inspirational introduction to the Chrisitan faith.
Wright explores all the sites that travelers usually visit on a tour of the Holy Land, explaining not only what is to be seen but also the context of faith that makes these sites, and the events associated with them, famous around the world. By weaving together Old and New Testament stories, poetry, and original insights, Wright helps readers enter imaginatively into each scene. He also sprinkles his narratives with reflections on the nature of pilgrimage generally and with discussion of vital contemporary issues related to the Holy Land.
Vividly evoking the sights, sounds and smells of the Holy Land, The Way of the Lord is ideal for both individual and small-group study, for all who have embarked on the spiritual journey of the Chrisitian life.
