>The Sacred Journey by Charles Foster

>This is the first book on pilgrimage that I’ve ever read. Charles Foster had me laughing and thinking throughout this whole book. It took me a long time to finish because it made me aware of myself and my beliefs. Something that no book has ever done.

Charles Foster, The Sacred Journey (Thomas Nelson Press, 2010), 230 pages including notes, an index and a study guide.

The Sacred Journey by Charles Foster is well written. I was not bored with this book in fact the opposite is true. His writing style is bold and blunt, something you might need to keep an open mind about. This book is about the journey of man, religion and pilgrimage. He writes throughout the book about different belief systems and how they involve pilgrimage. He shares his own personal experiences with pilgrimage and explains his ideas about the importance of going on pilgrimage.

However, I found it a bit confusing and hard to follow at times, but that I think had a lot to do with me and not the book itself. This topic is not something I would think would be easy to explain or discuss in a book. This being the seventh in the series of books. This is a book that makes you think. With that being said, I say read this book and then read it again. Maybe use the suggested reading in the book for a better understanding of pilgrimage. By reading this book Charles Foster has made me want to be more aware and understand what pilgrimage is all about.
