Journeys in Search of Mystery, Miracles and GodBook - 2017
"Whether describing mystical visions or the rhythms of everyday life, Erickson turns the spiritual journey into a series of exciting transformations."¿Publishers Weekly (starred review)From her childhood on an Iowa farm, Lori Erickson grew up to travel the world as a writer specializing in holy sites--journeys that led her on an ever-deepening spiritual quest. In Holy Rover, she weaves her personal narrative with descriptions of a dozen pilgrimages.Along the way, Erickson encounters spiritual leaders who include the chief priest of the Icelandic pagan religion of Asatru, a Trappist monk at Thomas Merton's Gethsemani Abbey, and a Lakota retreat director at South Dakota's Bear Butte.Both irreverent and devout, Holy Rover includes images of holy sites around the world taken by several of the nation's leading travel photographers.Travel writer, Episcopal deacon, and author of the Holy Rover blog at Patheos, Erickson is an engaging guide for pilgrims eager to take a spiritual journey. Her book describes travels that changed her life and can change yours, too.
