A Traveler's Guide to the Kingdom
Travel with James Emery White through time and space to visit places like Martin Luther's Wittenburg, where the 95 theses were nailed to a church door, or The Eagle and Child pub, where C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien and the other Inklings met to write and dream together.
You'll encounter many of the important spiritual sites of the history of Christianity and get a flavor for what it was like to be in that place at that time. White then takes you even deeper, exploring key themes from these historical moments such as calling, conversion and spirituality and showing their implications for the Christian life today.
"A Traveler's Guide to the Kingdom is a fascinating book in which James Emery White offers reflections on key locations around the world that have significance for the church."
"I want to strongly recommend A Traveler's Guide to the Kingdom for every reader of The Denver Journal. By aligning the theme of spiritual formation with both specific places and various people, Dr. White has done us all a great service. . . . If only all manuals, books and tracts on spiritual growth were as useful as this one! My hope is that you will read it and profit from it as much as I have."
