Two middle-aged men, fast friends, make eleven foreign tripspilgrimages you might call them to parts of the world rich in the history of Christianity.The trips combine adventure, strenuous physical activity, exhilaration, discovery, and friendship. Three of the journeys were to Western Europe; six were to Eastern Europe and the Balkans and two to the Middle East.The trips were spontaneous and unplanned, often requiring improvisation along the way. Told in a lighthearted and often amusing style, An Unlikely Pilgrim provides a vivid and colorful picture of parts of the world often out of the range of American tourists, but deep in both ancient and current geopolitical, historical, and cultural wealth.

Alfred Regnery is a publisher and a lawyer with a half-century career in business, politics, the law and journalism.
He has practiced law in the Midwest and in Washington, DC, was Counsel to a Senate Committee, a senior official in the US Department of Justice, President of his family's book publishing business and publisher of a national magazine.

"Alfred Regnery journeyed on foot, bicycle, and local transport along the pilgrim routes of the old world, recording the indelible traces of Christianity in a continent that is now trying hard to rub them out. Regnerys acute observations of the people and places along his way, and his sensitive response to the holiness that still lingers around them, make for fascinating reading. While accomplishing remarkable feats of physical endurance he also pursued his own spiritual journey, from scepticism to Christianity and thence into the Catholic Church. His touching account of this is not the least of the books many charms, and his account of the state of Europe today should be read by all who are concerned with Western civilisation and its fate." -- Roger Scruton

InUnlikely Pilgrim, Alfred Regnery has provided a fascinating account of a series of unique trips to parts of Europe and the Middle East, which give a remarkable insight into the origins and significant aspects of Christianity and Western Civilization. Much more than a travelogue, this highly readable book includes both stories of high adventure and perceptive observations of the peoples and places that have affected the course of history. A particularly compelling feature of this rewarding book is the author's personal reflections about the impact of these experiences on hisown life and philosophy. -- Ed Meese III

Al Regnery's Unlikely Pilgrimis the story of grace at work in a life lived with integrity and courageand an encouragement to others to find The Way. -- George Weigel
