More Description

Combining a thrilling travel narrative with the story of a profound spiritual journey, Nicholas Shrady vividly chronicles his pilgrimages to six holy sites of the world's major religions.

As his travels take him from Jerusalem and the Holy Land, Santiago de Compostela, and Bosnia to the banks of the Ganges, the Buddhist sites of India and Nepal, and the tomb of the Sufi mystic Rumi in Turkey, Nicholas Shrady brilliantly evokes the fascinating people and exotic places he encounters -- and his unexpected adventures along the way (including being kidnapped and robbed by leftist bandits in Bihar, India). At the same time, he recounts his own spiritual searches, and examines the profound religious and spiritual significance of each pilgrimage. Appealing to readers of all faiths as well as the spiritually curious, Shrady describes the historical pilgrimages to sites sacred to Christians, Jews, Moslems, Buddhists, and Hindus. Richly detailed and absorbing, Sacred Roads will captivate armchair adventurers and students of the soul alike.
