In partnership with House of Mercy, Subtext Books will host Andrew Wilson for a reading and presentation of his engaging travelogue, Here I Walk: A Thousand Miles on Foot to Rome 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 covered in The Christian Century, First Things, the Wall Street Journal, and Books & Culture, and travel expert Rick Steves interviewed Andrew and Sarah on his popular radio program. 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. 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.
