Life is a journey. It can also be a pilgrimage–a journey to God but only if we choose to make it so. A Pilgrim's Journey is a practical guide for thinking about and finding the way to God, and to making the journey to God a life well-lived. Bringing an attorney's intellect to bear on question of truth, James Barrett explores reason, science, conscience, and mystery to find a solid answer the question of life's purpose. A Pilgrim's Journey is a popular, accessible work of apologetics and evangelization. It refutes atheistic and secular humanist claims about God and human destiny and makes the case for Christian faith. At the same time, it is a meditation and personal reflection to help the reader turn mind and heart to God's love.
Praise for A Pilgrim's Journey:
"Jim Barrett cares deeply about Western civilization and its Christian roots, and invites others to think and care as much as he does."
– George Weigel, author of Evangelical Catholicism
"This book directly confronts and challenges hostile secular humanists in their attacks on religion and faith. This is an important message for many young people, who can be led astray by those secular humanists who ignore and abuse true science to promote their 'anything but God' agenda."
– Father Benedict Groeschel, CFR, author of Arise from Darkness
"A Pilgrim's Journey is a great reminder of how we ought to think … about everything. Jim Barrett does us a great favor by helping us look at reality in an honest way. This book refocuses our vision so that we can see what the Scriptures declare: 'The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork' (Ps 19:1)."
