Pilgrimage has been an important practice for Christians since the fourth century, but for many people these days it is no more than a relic of church history, utterly irrelevant to their lives. In THE ACCIDENTAL PILGRIM author and theologian Maggi Dawn shares her own gradual discovery of what it means to be a pilgrim, and suggests ways in which we can rediscover this ancient spiritual discipline in our global, twenty-first century world. Study trips to the Holy Land, frustrated pilgrimages as a young mother and internal journeys of soul all feature in this beautiful and inspiring memoir. Exploring both the past and the present of pilgrimage, it is a compelling invitation to all on the journey of faith.

Reviews

THE ACCIDENTAL PILGRIM is a welcome read for those of us who identify more with Chaucer's characters than the holier-than-thou crowd. Maggi Dawn's honest portrayals of her journey from tourist to pilgrim encourage me to keep walking along my own unique and crooked pilgrim path.
