SALLY WELCH, Vicar of Charlbury, explores ten pilgrim routes in the UK and beyond — e.g. Oxford to Binsey, Tabgha to Capernaum, Iona to St Andrews, or Stiklestad to Trondheim — in Pilgrim Journeys: Pilgrimage for walkers and armchair travellers (BRF, £7.99 (£7.20); 978-0-85746-513-9). Each chapter provides a reading from scripture, an essay inspired by her experience of the route, and a reflection. A brief history of pilgrimage is also included.
