On the Road to Emmaus

A Spiritual Guide of the Holy Land Towards a Permanent Pilgrimage

The present volume by Peter Sabella is a guidebook with a difference. The reader is confronted with the thought provoking and the deeply emotional challenges of the holy places, the history of the moving events associated with the life and sufferings of Jesus Chirst. This is done by selected passages from the Word of God, thoughtful reflections and questions, instructions and prayers, all signposts as it were, aiding the pilgrim to enter a more intimate union with God and forster a deeper commitment to practice the faith

Sabella's book offers visitors to this Holy Land the opportunity to experience it in a deeper way. So many come with the attitude of a consumer, checking holy sites off a list of things to do and see. This guide transforms the consumer into a pilgrim, inviting Christians to a deeper understanding of these places in relation to their living faith. A recommended spiritual alternative to the usual guide book.

Cover of Closed for Renovation On the Road to Emmaus

The Holy Land shows both the possibilities for human flourishing in response to the call of Jesus to turn and follow him and also the ways that humanity falls into conflicts and separation. This is a book that speaks of resilience and hope in a fallen world. It is one that helps the pilgrim to hear afresh the call of Jesus to follow, which, as Peter Sabella says, comes from letting the time of pilgrimage be one of "being closed for renovation" so that one can "re-open" ti all the possibilities of service in Jesus's name.
