Product description

Review

"Tony's pilgrimage challenges on all levels - from aching feet and exhaustion to the deep longing within him to connect soul to soul with the God he loves. This book will move and inspire you." -- Pam Rhodes

"Engagingly insightful, endearingly witty, and wholly honest, this account of Tony's adventure will whet your appetite, as it has mine, to embark on your own pilgrimage into self-discovery and deeper richness of life." --Simon Guillebaud

"Tony Collins' new book is an absolute delight. We take not one walk with him, but two, and both are a genuine pleasure. Here is a man who stands at the verge of retirement, who looks back and forward, and does so with both reverence and great good humour. There was so much quiet passion contained within these pages, and so many powerful lessons. Highly recommended." Davis Bunn, bestselling author
Reading Tony Collins's tale of thirty-two days upon pilgrimage provides a reader with much of the experience of the journey, except for aching knees and blisters. Tony began the trek hoping to put myself in a situation where, if God were inclined to speak to me, I would be in a state of mind to listen. It becomes apparent as the book ends that this did indeed happen. If one cannot make the pilgrimage to San Juan de Compostela, reading TAKING MY GOD FOR A WALK is an excellent substitute. Mel Starr, author of The Unquiet Bones

A truly wonderful book: part travelogue, part history, part journal. Tony writes with wit, charm and intelligence, and above all, honesty. If, like me, you find yourself nodding in recognition with Tony s struggles with the busyness, clutter and stuff of life that accumulates and drowns out space, clarity and God then the book will gently challenge you to reflect on your own priorities. We may not all be able to walk the Camino, but the lessons Tony learnt about life, himself and God, are ones we can all learn from. Tony s journey along the Camino left him changed and I hope this beautifully written book may change you too. Now, where are my walking boots ... Andy Bannister, evangelist, speaker and author of The Atheist Who Didn t Exist

Veteran British publisher Tony Collins calls us to join him along the famous Camino pilgrimage path, guiding us through its beautiful, gritty, punishing terrain. Joy, pain, regret, discovery you experience them all on a journey like this. Sheridan Voysey, writer and speaker

"This is a pilgrimage on paper. The words are like the whisper of God on the evening breeze. The images painted are like glimpses of the dawn after a long night. Tony's pilgrimage is that of a man who is learning to fall upwards, in the words of Richard Rohr. You hear the depth of his faith and the yearning of a heart that knows God is so much bigger than any of our limited notions of him and so much more beautiful than our most beautiful thoughts and ideas of him. I found Tony's words deeply moving for a couple of reasons. Firstly, this is a walk I yearn to take for myself. I have dreamt of it for many years. Maybe one day, but for now I am grateful to Tony for helping me to feel the dirt of the Pyrennes beneath my feet and sense the scent of the air in my nostrils. His words have helped me walk, by proxy, a walk I will one day make for myself, God willing. Secondly, by the time you read these words, my sister, Anne, will have walked part of this pilgrimage for herself. She is making the journey as she comes to terms with the death of her son and husband to suicide between November 2014 and April 2015. I have already spoken some of Tony's words to her and they have been immensely powerful for her. Pilgrimage is something my particular strand of the Church do rather poorly and aa result we are impoverished. Tony's book is not just a record of his journey, it is a beautifully crafted, hope-laden invitation to us all to put on our walking boots, pack a small rucksack and embark on our own journey of discovering more of God and more of ourselves. I pray we each respond to the invitation and find ourselves with a fresh love of God and fresh awareness of our place and purpose in his world." Malcolm Duncan, author and speaker --Malcolm Duncan
