    1. While many pilgrimages are outer journeys to sites of spiritual significance, The Soul of a Pilgrim invites readers on an inner pilgrimage. Creative expression and contemplation are the practices offered to solo pilgrims who read this book. It's full of poetry; scripture stories by John Valters Paintner to explore each theme; an invitation to the practice of lectio divina; and creative exploration through photography. Readers are also invited to write their own Midrash, an ancient Jewish practic [...]

    2. I have just returned from a pilgrimage to the wondrous west coast of Ireland, led by Christine and John Valters Paintner. It was a fabulous, rich, deep experience which I'm sure I will be savouring for some time to come. This book is also one to savour. I loved the way that Christine and John connected their own life experience to the themes of being a pilgrim. I loved Christine's description and vocabulary for the practice of lectio divina: lectio= notice what is shimmering for you; meditatio= [...]

    3. I read this book to prepare for a Celtic Pilgrimage. It actively involves the reader in preparation for the pilgrimage by including practices such as reflections, readings, lectio divina, prayers, midrash, walking, and photography. I was new to pilgrimage and it helped me understand my yearnings and intents. It also helped me understand the concepts behind a pilgimage, such as letting go, crossing thresholds, being uncomfortable, and embracing the unknown.An excellent source for me, but I would [...]

    5. What does it mean to be a pilgrim on a pilgrimage? The Soul of a Pilgrim seeks to answer this question with us. Being on a spiritual journey is not new to most but to define yourself as a pilgrim is more than just being a traveler. I would say it is by way of seeking that makes the difference. The author speaks of letting some things find you and not to push to hard to understand but let it wash over you. I enjoyed the juxtaposition of the story of the physical move of the author to Ireland and [...]

    6. Genre: Religion and spiritualityThe author has structured the book into eight segments of spiritual guides designed to assist the reader on an inner pilgrimage. Excerpt from the book:"Missing you" scrawled on a postcard sent home, but you don't follow with "wish you were here." This is a voyage best made alone. Chapter 1 "The Practice of Hearing the Call and Responding"The first chapter deals with the concept of the discovery of our true selves after stripping away all self-deception, self-criti [...]

    7. As someone who has embarked on the Journey Within for some years, the experience of reading The Soul of A Pilgrim was singularly powerful for me. As I read about each of the eight practices, I instantly recognised a time in my own journey where I had been called to take up that very invitation. These eight practices of Hearing the Call and Responding; Packing Lightly; Crossing the Threshold; Making the Way by Walking; Being Uncomfortable; Beginning Again; Embracing the Unknown and of Coming Home [...]

    8. This book came at the right time in my life. I had finally accepted the need to leave a place very dear to me. As John Valters Paintner explains in Chapter One, "The Practice of Hearing the Call and Responding": "Pilgrimage can mean the life journeys we take in response to unwelcomed circumstances Any time life ousts us from our places of security, we are called upon to bring ourselves fully present to our experience. We honor that even unbidden journeys can take us to places where we encounter [...]

    9. I am a daily practitioner of centering prayer. Silent prayer is a special time for me. I need silence. Christine's book, The Soul of a Pilgrim, came along at a perfect time for me. This book has both complemented and deepened my contemplative practices.Christine's book has taken me on a pilgrimage. It has challenged me to explore new contemplative practices. I have rediscovered Lectio Divina. Previously, I was just not able to do it. I now find that I can! I have added Lectio Divina to my daily [...]

    12. I came to this book seeking to discover the "meaning" behind a pilgrimage. Did I need to travel on a physical journey in seeking to find whatever it was I'm seeking or simply to experience one each day with Jesus? Call it a yearning, for something more. To experience more of God, to realise a life fully immersed in surrender to Him. This book helped bring clarity in such a gentle way.Christine Valters Paintner mirrors her spiritual pilgrimage with the physical one that she and her husband have e [...]
