Unexpected Destinations: An Evangelical Pilgrimage to World Christianity
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, Jun 1, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 296 pages
From Billy Graham to a Trappist monastery, from Capitol Hill to the helm of the Reformed Church in America, Wesley Granberg-Michaelson s personal pilgrimage has covered the length and breadth of Christianity in America. Now, drawing upon forty years of his own spiritual journals, this elder statesman of the church crystallizes his wide-ranging experiences into a sharp, lively memoir.
Unexpected Destinations reveals a unique encounter with evangelical piety, Catholic contemplative spirituality, Reformed theology, Pentecostal practice, and ecumenical efforts an encounter that dares to envision unity between all these strands of Christianity. It provides fresh historical insights into the evangelical subculture of the 1970s, sheds new light on how denominations today grapple inwardly with such issues as homosexuality and missional renewal, and poignantly relates the joy and pain of one man s spiritual life journey.
