In an evocative and personal style, Alister McGrath takes readers on a journey that retraces the path of the great Exodus from Egypt. Through the Wilderness and over the Mountains, he helps us to address a series of spiritual obstacles - doubt, distraction, temptation, tiredness, emptiness and low self-esteem - by learning from fellow travellers we meet along the way: giants of Christian spirituality including C. S. Lewis, J. I. Packer and John Bunyan.

This is a book of spirituality, not about spirituality, aimed at the modern-day Christian for whom the spiritual classics can often seem inaccessible.

Here's what you say about us...

Alister McGrath is the Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion at Oxford University, and Fellow of Harris Manchester College, Oxford. After initial academic work in the natural sciences, Alister turned to the study of theology and intellectual history, while occasionally becoming engaged in broader cultural debates about the rationality and relevance of the Christian faith. He is the author of many academic and theological works, as well as the bestsellingThe Dawkins Delusionand, most recently, his acclaimedC. S. Lewis - A Life.

Here is a golden book on the Christian life, guaranteed to excite, encourage and energise plodding pilgrims. Buy it, treasure it and invest in a stack of copies to give away.
J. I. Packer

I couldn't put down this humble, moving testimony to God's grace. It excites me because it has the potential to change the prayer patterns of countless Christians in a way that could deepen their encounter with God and make them more effective for the Kingdom.
Joyce Huggett

Nothing could be more relevant to the current spiritual search than seeing life as a journey, and Dr McGrath does just that, illustrating it with the wisdom of distinguished Christians who are our companions on the way, and giving us a wonderful insight into his own struggles and joys.
Michael Green

An inspired and creative account of how a brilliant mind is shaped and developed by other brilliant minds of surprisingly different backgrounds.
R. T. Kendall

Alister McGrath charts a spiritual journey that engages the heart as well as the mind. Along the way he unearths hidden treasures from classical writers which, with freshly polished biblical images, nourish both the emotions and the intellect. Loving God should involve the whole person - mind, heart, soul and strength. This book evokes such a holistic response.
