Written to encourage others to continue on their own spiritual journeys, readers will find Ignatius struggling with many of the same questions and tensions that Christians face every day: Why should I belong to the church, if I can follow God in my own way? What should I do with my life? How do I fight this temptation? How do I know when God is trying to tell me something? Is it ever acceptable to say “no” to good people who ask for my help?
Ignatius considered himself a ‘Pilgrim,’ as he wandered on different paths seeking God. Although he moved over land and sea, it was his spiritual journey, his experiences of God that inspired him to leave behind his Pilgrim’s Testament.
