Full Product Description

Alan Jacobs is fond of the essay because it lets a writer do something that more formal pieces of writing cannot: follow the vagaries of the mind, let the writing follow its own path, encountering surprises and fresh insights along the way.
In this new collection, Jacobs offers essays for companionable wayfaring. To be a Christian, he says, is to be a wayfarer, to move hopefully towards a cherished goal. These essays are a wayfarers notes, a record of ideas and experiences encountered on the pilgrim path. Gathered here are pieces serious and comic, eloquent and interesting. Jacobs muses on the usefulness and dangers of blogging, the art of dictionary making, the world of Harry Potter, and an appreciation of trees. He also includes several book reviews, including a wickedly witty poem.
With Wayfaring, Jacobs continues his tradition of exploring Christian theology and experience by way of the essay, bringing serious musings within reach of us all.

Wayfaring by Alan Jacobs was published by Eerdmans Publishing Company in July 2010. The ISBN for Wayfaring is 9780802865687.
