A Thousand-Mile Pilgrimage with Martin Luther
In 2010, Andrew Wilson and his wife, Sarah, walked in the footsteps of Martin Luther, re-creating his famous pre-Reformation pilgrimage from Erfurt to Rome. Their trek was well publicized, with coverage in the "Christian Century," "First Things," the "Wall Street Journal," and "Books & Culture." As they walked their journey of a thousand miles over seventy days, thousands of readers followed along on the Wilsons' blog.
This engaging narrative brings readers along as Andrew and Sarah traverse Europe, visiting highlights such as Coburg Castle, Ulm's MUnster, the Alps, Milan, Florence, and Rome. Their journey provides a unique window into the history of the Protestant Reformation and a creative entryway into the life of Luther. The book also reflects on the contemporary ecumenical significance of the events of the Reformation, exploring what the changes of the past 500 years mean for the Christian present and future.
Beautifully written and enjoyable to read, "Here I Walk" offers a unique combination of firsthand travel narrative, fascinating explorations in history, and theological and spiritual reflection. Pictures, maps, and an afterword by Sarah Hinlicky Wilson are included.
