From the Back Cover:

The Christian life compels us to move on, to break new ground, to take the Gospel message to fresh people and places. We are all pilgrims journeying toward God and carrying each other along. Indeed, the history of Christian literature is littered with imagery of such restlessness and journeying, from Chaucer's Canterbury Tales to Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress. This journey is not one undertaken without guidance. There are signposts from the earliest days of Christianity. St Augustine of Canterbury arrived a missionary pilgrim in Britain exactly 1400 years ago, the same year that Columba, the great Celtic saint, died on Iona. In this fascinating and expertly researched book, Stephen Platten traces the lasting significance of these and other pioneering people of God down the centuries. But the journey is more than historical. It takes us beyond ancient sites and shrines of the saints to the towns and cities of modern life, where the Christian mission is lived out at the end of the 20th century. Here, the legacy of Augustine, Columba and their fellow pilgrims finds a relevance for all Christians today and for the coming years.
