Product Description

Review

This book speaks to our condition: we feel exiled from our former sense of a familiar environmental, political and religious landscape. It compellingly points a way forward through prophetic, ancient faith-future faith pilgrimage. Ray Simpson, Founding Guardian, The Community of Aidan and Hilda In this inspiring and insightful book, Andrew Jones invites us to travel with him as he unravels enriching conversation between God's story in scripture, the sacred locations of pilgrimage, and the joys and tragedies of individual human lives. Leslie J Francis, Professor of Religions and Education, University of Warwick From The Diocese of Hereford Newspaper - Summer 2012 In the second half of this excellent paperback, (nicely produced on very white paper), Andrew Jones, an experienced pilgrimage leader, invites us to accompany individual pilgrims to eight shrines, including Canterbury, Pennant Melangell, and Glendalough. We learn of different reasons for going on pilgrimage, and the life-giving transformation it offers. The journeying together is seen to strength faith and enliven hope. This is all set in the theological context of Exile - as experienced by God's people in the Old Testament and in the Church today. The reader needs a little patience as this theme is developed, but it is worth persevering as there is prophetic challenge for the church to sing the old songs differently and to trust God to lead us home with joy. Reviewed by Val Hamer From The Church Times - 26 August 2011 Andrew Jones is an archdeacon and parish priest in Wales. He leads many pilgrimages, and his book is the fruit of many conversations with fellow-pilgrims. It is a book of two halves: in the second, he describes eight popular places of pilgrimage in the British Isles, providing a historical background to each, and giving us a "flavour" of them by re counting stories of pilgrims whom he has met on the way. There is always a danger in this approach of being overly anecdotal, but Jones avoids this, and uses the stories of individuals to show how a place and the journey to it can be transforming and renewing. The first half of the book is more theological. It looks at biblical notions of exile and remembrance, and examines how the individual believer can bring the story of his or her life to the biblical narratives of journeying, being in exile, and coming home; and how the interleaving of the biblical narratives and personal experience can be transforming. There is much food for thought here, both for seasoned pilgrims and for those who, perhaps, wonder what the point is of going on pilgrimage at all. Reviewed by Peter McGear
