ABRAHAM

in
$23.95

In this timely, provocative, and uplifting journey, the bestselling author of Walking the Bible searches for the man at the heart of the world's three monotheistic religions -- and today's deadliest conflicts.

At a moment when the world is asking, "Can the religions get along?" one figure stands out as the shared ancestor of Jews, Christians, and Muslims. One man holds the key to our deepest fears -- and our possible reconciliation. Abraham.

Bruce Feiler set out on a personal quest to better understand our common patriarch. Traveling in war zones, climbing through caves and ancient shrines, and sitting down with the world's leading religious minds, Feiler uncovers fascinating, little-known details of the man who defines faith for half the world.

Both immediate and timeless, Abraham is a powerful, universal story, the first-ever interfaith portrait of the man God chose to be his partner. Thoughtful and inspiring, it offers a rare vision of hope that will redefine what we think about our neighbors, our future, and ourselves.

ART OF PILGRIMAGE

in
$16.95

For the intrepid traveler, there are more resources than ever before. But what about the traveler who is at a crossroads in life, longing for something else, neither diversion nor distraction, beyond escape and mere entertainment? What about those eager for a journey that is personally meaningful? For millennia this cry has been answered by pilgrimage, the transformative journey to a sacred center. The ancients referred to this path as the Way of the Pilgrim, an acknowledgement of travel for the sake of devotion, commitment, even penance to a holy site, a destination that blazes with meaning -- in short, a journey of risk and renewal. "The Art of Pilgrimage" is a guide for travelers ready to embark on a sacred journey and for armchair travelers curious to know what it means to travel with soulful purpose. Geared toward the modern-day pilgrim looking for inspiration and a few spiritual tools for the road, it combines stories, myths, parables, and quotes from famous travelers of the past with practical suggestions and contemporary accounts from people traveling the sacred way today. Not a guidebook to holy sites, this book is designed to help travelers focus on the purpose and intention at every satge of their journey no matter where they are going. "The Art of Pilgrimage" includes stories of traditional pilgrimages such as those to Canterbury or Jerusalem, but also ones to Shakespeare's home, Graceland, or the "Field of Dreams" in Iowa. Phil Cousineau recounts anecdotes from his own travels covering over 50 countries and offers readers the advice he gives when leading tours for the Joseph Campbell Foundation.

BODY & THE BLOOD

in
$30.00

Retracing the path of Jesus's life from Bethlehem, to Egypt, to Nazareth, to what is today Lebanon and finally to Jerusalem, this volume takes readers on a picaresque journey through the modern Middle East. It winds through the vicious tensions of the West Bank, the fundamentalist uprisings of Upper Egypt, the ruins of Beirut, the tribal culture of Jordan, and Jerusalem's messianic underworld to discover Christian life is vanishing in the land where the faith began. The indigenous Christian community, which just two generations ago represented as much as 20 percent of Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Galilee, is now less than two percent of the total population. Historians and demographers fear that native Christianity could virtually disappear in the Holy Land within two more generations. This is all the more poignant in a year in which millions of Christian tourists are descending upon Jerusalem to celebrate the 2000th anniversary of Jesus's birth.

CALL OF THE CAMINO: MYTH AND MEANING ON THE ROAD TO COMPOSTELA

in
$15.95

The experiences of an ordinary man on the pilgrim's path are charted in this narrative that walks along the Camino Frances to the shrine of Saint James at Santiago de Compostela and then on to Finisterre, the westernmost point of Spain. The history of the Camino is recounted, as well as several of the myths, legends, and miracle stories that have become attached--and given special meaning--to this itinerary. Emphasizing that personal myths are an essential part of this lore, this chronicle also includes stories from the confraternity of the pilgrims, people from all corners of the world who visit this walk for a great diversity of reasons, but all of whom leave having experienced the same miracle--that this pilgrimage will play a defining role in their lives.

CHRISTIAN TRAVELERS COMPANION: BIBLE LAN

in
$14.99

With The Christian Traveler's Companion: The USA and Canada, Amy Eckert and William Petersen highlighted the Christian heritage of North America for readers vacationing in their own backyard. Their follow-up book guided travelers as they experienced the spiritual richness of Western Europe. Now the globetrotting duo offers a new guide of special significance to travelers of faith: The Christian Traveler's Companion: Bible Lands.

While most comparable travel guides include just overviews of Israel and Greece, Eckert and Petersen's book is much broader, including twelve countries listed in Scripture. Here is vital and engaging travel information for anyone journeying to Israel, Egypt, Cyprus, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Malta, Syria, and Crete. Many Christians long to visit the Holy Land, and Israel is, naturally, the cornerstone country featured in this guide. But the authors also unfold a reader's understanding of Scripture with tips on visiting such biblical sites as Ephesus, Corinth, Petra, or Mt. Hermon in Syria.

Suitable for Protestants and Catholics, The Christian Travelers Companion: Bible Lands references Scripture to go along with each destination. Complete with intriguing side-bars that detail archeological and historical sites, this travel guide will make a spiritual pilgrimage to the Bible lands even more meaningful.

product image
$19.99

Rome is more than ever bursting at the seams with newly unleashed vitality. Just in time for 2012's 2 million American visitors is all-color, photo-packed "Fodor's Rome, " revealing the "festa romana" that is the pulse of the Eternal City. If proof were needed that Romans are switching into the fast lane, just check out Fodor's "new Rome" wrap-up.
Expanded Coverage: Look for expanded write-ups of the hot and hip neighborhoods of Pigneto and San Lorenzo, the latest architectural landmarks (the Casa della Ballo and Casa del Cinema), and more avant-garde sites.
Illustrated Features: Rome is one of Europe's most resplendent cities, so it is no wonder Fodor's selected it for full-color treatment. Our "In-Focus" magazine-style illustrated features take in everything from archaeological sites to the Vatican to the coolest neighborhoods. The guide showcases the ancient city in "Rome Was Not Built in a Day," then skips to the city's hippest scene-arena in "Life is a Piazza." For Rome at its High-Renaissance best, and insights on how the 17th--century city of spectacle was created, toggle from the section "Agony and Ecstasy: The Sistine Ceiling" to "Baroque and Desperate: The Tragic Rivalry of Bernini and Borromini." A first for Fodor's: our photo-rich chapter, "Roamin' Holiday," has theme walks that immerse the reader in three especially evocative stretches of the city.
Indispensable Trip Planning Tools "Fodor's Rome" consummately fits the bill on both a practical and cultural basis. Detail-packed "Getting Oriented" sections, with plenty of hands-on coaching, introduce all nine sightseeing neighborhoods. The "Experience Rome" chapter is loaded with valuable advice, such as tips on how to explore Rome like the locals do, and "Beating the Euro." With neighborhood hotel charts, eight photo-spotlit dining districts, and more restaurant and hotel reviews than Frommer's, "Fodor's Rome" handily trumps the competition.
Discerning Recommendations: Fodor's Rome offers savvy advice and recommendations from local writers to help travelers make the most of their time. Fodor's Choice designates our best picks, from hotels to nightlife. "Word of Mouth" quotes from fellow travelers provide valuable insights.

FUMBLING

in
$22.95

In the spirit of Kathleen Norris and Anne Lamott, Kerry Egan describes her journey from grief to faith in this candid, spiritually profound account of her pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago, the medieval pilgrim route through Northern Spain.
Kerry Egan, a student at Harvard Divinity School, became a pilgrim at the age of twenty-five, a year after the death of her father. Watching her father die had shattered the image of God Egan grew up with and undermined the theology she studied in school; she embarked on her pilgrimage full of hope and dread at the same time.
"Fumbling "is the moving journal of Egan's experiences as she and her boyfriend traveled from the Pyrenees in southern France through the valleys of Navarra and westward through Spain to the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, said to contain the remains of Saint James. The idea of pilgrimage rests on the belief that in some places the Divine is especially available to human beings and that the journey itself--the time spent as a pilgrim--is transformative, cleansing, and purifying. Egan was well versed in theories about grieving and the purpose of a pilgrimage, but it was through walking eight or ten hours a day that she first began to understand what grief really was and to recognize God's presence in everyday people and places.
With humor and unabashed honesty, Egan records her struggles to deal with muddy roads, blistering heat, and grouchy moods. She describes fellow pilgrims of many nationalities, the humble abodes that provide them shelter, and the beautiful, often challenging, landscape. Each incident, encounter, and hard-won mile shapes her internal journey. The repetitiveness of walking frees herto meditate for long periods, the rhythm of her breathing awakens an awareness of the connections of breath, life, and God so central to the teachings of Hebrew and Christian scriptures, and the most unlikely events--from discovering chickens in church to the pleasure of having a pizza at a train station--remind her that prayer is as at once as simple and as profound as seeing and acknowledging the joys and beauty of life.
A story of overcoming anger and sadness and finding joy and redemption, "Fumbling" illuminates the power of grief to enhance our relationship with God.
