ISBN-13: 9780819218230



The Christian spiritual journey is a pilgrimage to wholeness, a search for home that is in God. In this classic work on contemporary spiritual living, Alan Jones explores the various parts of the pilgrimage home. Using literature, art, and biblical texts as illustrations, he explores our search for light and love, repentance, and forgiveness in the context of the Passion and Easter stories.

An excellent book for group study during Lent and Easter, this edition includes study questions at the end of each chapter. Passion for Pilgrimage is also provocative reading for individuals at any time of the year who want to understand the Christian journey more deeply.

Alan Jones, author of Passion for Pilgrimage and Soul Making, was dean of Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. He was formerly director of the Center for Christian Spirituality at General Theological Seminary in New York.

"[Alan Jones] is a consummate storyteller and his stories illuminate our human condition as they speak of God's passion for us meeting our passion for God...Tell[s] the old, old, story and tell[s] it so well, that it seems new and yet familiar--setting us on our pilgrimage home."—Archbishop Desmond Tutu

"Jones has written a fervent, beautifully expressed journal....Not just a Lent-Easter book, but a book for all seasons, to be re-read and dipped into over and over."—The Living Church
