Quick overview Reveals how walking benefits us physically, mentally and spiritually - and also how walking may involve drudgery, fear and mortal danger, thus opening our eyes to others' perspectives
£12.99

The Way Under Our Feet considers how we might encounter the heavenly realms by following in Jesus' footsteps. It reflects on how walking affects our thinking and our looking. It includes stories of those who have walked in protest or fled persecution. It asks how we might tread more gently on the earth and what might be going on when we are on pilgrimage. It explores how walking at three miles an hour can be a healing time, offering the opportunity to re-member and re-calibrate the rhythm that is at the heart of each of our souls. (We never hear the spiritual life being described as a motorway journey, a cruise or a flight, but simply as a walk, or sometimes as a race, when there is a sense of urgency along the way.) This enthralling book invites us to walk ourselves back into life.
