Margaret Guenther is one of the church’s most popular authors. With a wide and enthusiastic ecumenical audience, she is much in demand for retreats, conferences, diocesan conventions, and clergy days.

In her new book, Guenther retells the “walking stories” of Scripture and unpacks the truths they reveal about spiritual life: Jesus walks everywhere with his disciples — always arriving, departing, on the way somewhere else. Adam and Eve walked out of the garden, Lot and his daughters walked out of Sodom, Abraham and Isaac walked to Mt. Moriah, the Israelites walked for forty years to the promised land, the Prodigal Son walked home barefoot, the disciples walked to Emmaus.

The spiritual life is oftentimes about putting one foot in front of another, always on the way, never home, until crossing another new threshold. However, the point of all our walking — whether tedious or joyous, rambling or goal-oriented — is getting home, as this splendid author illustrates in this reflective new work. 169244 Margaret Guenther
