Jill Baker experienced the ancient spiritual practice of pilgrimage as a lifeline following tragic bereavement. She discovered more about being a pilgrim not only by making journeys, but also by identifying and developing attitudes and perspectives which help her and others to travel well through this journey of life, with all its ups and downs, green pastures and desolate spaces.

Baker encourages us to step into the pilgrim spirit and discover more about the big, wild God who constantly calls us to follow. The book dips into the biblical roots of pilgrimage and considers the history of the practice, particularly asking the question about how pilgrimage fits into a Methodist theology and culture.

Jill Baker invites us to explore pilgrim words, such as – restlessness, encounter, attentiveness, courage, liminality – to suggest ways in which seeing our lives as pilgrimage may help us to navigate through them.
