A Thousand-Mile Pilgrimage with Martin Luther
In 2010, Andrew Wilson and his wife, Sarah, walked in the footsteps of Martin Luther, re-creating his famous pre-Reformation pilgrimage from Erfurt to Rome. Their trek was well publicized, with coverage in the "Christian Century," "First Things," the "Wall Street Journal," and "Books & Culture." As they walked their journey of a thousand miles over seventy days, thousands of readers followed along on the Wilsons' blog.
This engaging narrative brings readers along as Andrew and Sarah traverse Europe, visiting highlights such as Coburg Castle, Ulm's MUnster, the Alps, Milan, Florence, and Rome. Their journey provides a unique window into the history of the Protestant Reformation and a creative entryway into the life of Luther. The book also reflects on the contemporary ecumenical significance of the events of the Reformation, exploring what the changes of the past 500 years mean for the Christian present and future.
Beautifully written and enjoyable to read, "Here I Walk" offers a unique combination of firsthand travel narrative, fascinating explorations in history, and theological and spiritual reflection. Pictures, maps, and an afterword by Sarah Hinlicky Wilson are included.

"Charming, passionate, and blessedly resistant to clichE"

"A richly descriptive and beguiling journey. On Luther's walking trail to Rome, past and present collide and shower the reader with sparks of local color and empathetic reflections on religion, pilgrimage, nature, daily life, and the people who lived it--how they have changed after five centuries and what has endured. Highly recommended."
--Scott Hendrix, author of Martin Luther: Visionary Reformer

"Here I Walk (my nominee for wittiest book title of the year) is charming, passionate, and blessedly resistant to clichE. In a season crowded with books about Martin Luther, the Reformation, and the legacy of Protestantism, make room on your shelf for this winsome travelogue."
--John Wilson, editor, Books & Culture

"I hope many readers will share the treat of Andrew and Sarah's pilgrimage along Luther's 1511 route to Rome. The chronicle charms by telling of nature's surviving outposts and by recounting fascinating persons, those perfect strangers who generously solve the trek's inevitable problems. The pilgrims felt Catholic devotional piety from close up and deftly relate Protestant dedication to quotidian but godly work. In evenhanded telling prompted by myriad signs and marks strewn across Europe, Reformation history and theology repeatedly break into the narrative. It's a long walk to join with delight, a book to savor."
--Jared Wicks, SJ, Gregorian University, Rome

"'Protestant pilgrimage' is not an oxymoron but lies at the heart of the reforming gospel, simply because it is central to the gospel itself. This remarkable book weaves together past and present, theology and history, human encounter and affection. Wilson shows how Luther's world, so different from our own in some ways, is exactly the same in its grace-filled ordering by God. Written with gentle wisdom, Here I Walk will renew and deepen the faith of every reader."
--Ephraim Radner, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto
