Spiritual Traveler: The spiritual Traveler: Chicago and IllinoisChicago and Illinois:
A Guide to Sacred Sites and Peaceful Places

by Marilyn J. Chiat / Paperback / November 2003

The Spiritual Traveler: Chicago and Illinois is a unique guidebook. It introduces hundreds of churches, synagogues, mosques, meetinghouses, Buddhist meditation centers and Hindu temples, as well as retreat centers of various religious traditions. It lists landmarks that rank among America's finest works of architecture and contain treasures of spiritual art and history. It describes numerous beautiful gardens, parks, cemeteries, and other peaceful places, as well as the natural beauty of the land between Lake Michigan and the Mississippi River. Introductory chapters recount the spiritual history of Illinois, offer an overview of many faith traditions, and explain its sacred architecture.

Spiritual Traveler: Boston and New EnglandSpiritual Traveler: Boston and New England: A Guide to Sacred Sites and Peaceful Places
By Jana Riess / Paperback / June  2002 *

Part history and part travel guide, this book provides a fascinating look at both past and present as it describes churches, synagogues and other religious sites throughout New England. Beginning with an overview of the various religions and their sanctuaries, Riess describes various houses of worship and their unique features. In addition to standard travel guide fare such as hours, location and nearby attractions, there are "focus boxes" that offer interesting definitions or information. Riess's writing is always direct and particularly vibrant when she's offering a historical perspective --perhaps not surprising since she holds a doctorate in American religious history. -- Publishers Weekly

Spiritual Traveler - NYÇThe Spiritual Traveler : New York City : The Guide to Sacred Spaces and Peaceful Places
By Edward F. Bergman / Hardcover / May 2001 *

This second book in the Spiritual Traveler series continues in the tradition of offering valuable historical and architectural information about the houses of worship of many faiths, in addition to tips about natural sites such as parks and gardens. The introduction contains brief, useful histories of New York's many faith groups, along with a very helpful chapter on the architectural features of the city's houses of worship. Organized by neighborhood, the book is a terrific guide to the sacred sites of Manhattan, but the outer boroughs receive rather cursory treatment in a single chapter. Informational focus boxes and more than 100 black and white photographs enhance the text.

Spiritual Traveler - EnglandThe Spiritual Traveler : The Guide to Sacred Sites and Pilgrim Routes in Britain
By Martin Palmer, Nigel Palmer / paperback / Nov 2000 *

This unique guide book takes us on a journey across the rural and urban landscapes of Britain, and helps us to discover and explore a multitude of sacred sites: ancient stone circles and tombs, Christian and pre-Christian shrines, medieval synagogues, small country churches and soaring cathedrals, Eastern temples, abbey ruins, sacred cities, holy well, etc. Includes tips for overnight lodging in monasteries, abbeys and spiritual centers.



Four guidebooks offer Christian travelers an accessible entry into European history, with special focus on Christian (especially Protestant) heritage and faith. Brief sidebars on important historical figures, informative architectural diagrams and introductory chapters on history and art complement the volumes, which are arranged alphabetically by town. Brilliantly, each book promotes the series' Web site (http://www.christian-travelers-guides.com), which links to the Web pages of many sacred places, offers tips on Christian accommodations, gives excerpts from key historical sermons and texts, and even suggests daily devotions as visitors travel through Europe. The books lack practical information, such as directions, hours and telephone numbers, and more maps would also be helpful. - Publishers Weekly

This unique guide includes thousands of sites within the United States and Canada that offer Christians inspiration and fun.
