About the book...
For centuries labyrinths have been used as tools for personal pilgrimage, meditation and spiritual formation. In "A Labyrinth Pilgrimage," author C. A. Radke uses daily devotions to take the reader on a spiritual journey in a progression from creation to Easter. The journey follows the path into his unique, seven-circuit Cross Labyrinth design, which always leads the pilgrim to an encounter with God at the foot of the cross.

While it can be used at any time of the year, the book is especially suited to a Lenten devotional study, with the journey beginning on Ash Wednesday and ending on Easter Sunday. Each devotion corresponds with a segment of the labyrinth, connecting the daily studies with the pilgrim's journey. Weekly themes can also be used as the basis for shorter, separate studies in these units:
