Summary

When Guy Stagg decided to walk from Canterbury to Jerusalem, he spent the next 10 months following medieval pilgrim paths across 5,500 km. He began the journey after suffering several years of mental illness, hoping the ritual would heal him. Travelling alone and without support, he had to rely each night on the charity of strangers. 

The Crossway is an account of Stagg's extraordinary journey. It describes the dangers he faced on the road, captures the people he met and the landscapes he experienced, offers a unique insight into contemporary faith and - most movingly - lays bare his struggle to escape the past and walk towards recovery.

A Great Listen

Just brilliant. The story is gripping and the narration is excellent. One of those books you just don't want to end. I rationed myself! I'd recommend this to anyone. Good luck!

A searching pilgtimage

We follow the author's personal search during his long and courageous pilgrimage throughout Europe and to Jerusalem. During it we learn much of the history of peoples, landscapes and religions, of people's aspirations, beliefs and kindnesses - which carry them through many appalling events carried out under the guise of religion. An encouraging story for our time.
