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 new edition includes study questions at the end of each chapter. Passio for Pilgrimage is also provocative reading for individuals at any time of the year who want to understand the Christian journey more deeply.

A leading spiritual writer presents an inspiring book of meditations on the Lenten Journey, the Week of Crucifixion, and the Call to Glory (Easter).From Library Journal:
Orthodox in spirit but stressing the inner journey of faith rather than doctrinal formulas, these thoughtful and nuanced reflections by the dean of San Francisco's Grace Cathedral explore the spiritual meaning of Lent, the Crucifixion, and Easter. Jones probes a faith born in "the collision of two passions--our passion for God and God's passion for us." His insights critique both fundamentalism and secular relativism, inviting all who need "loving out of their disappointment, cynicism, and despair" into a new resurrection hope. Deeply felt and intelligent, highly literate without the least pretension, this makes rewarding reading.-- EC
