the life you save may be your own

My brief reflection on Paul Elie's The Life You Save May Be Your Own: An American Pilgrimage is posted at No Depression.

Elie's project is a really wonderful way of connecting four profoundly Christian witnesses (Merton, Percy, O' Connor, Day) through the image of pilgrimage, understood as the movement from second hand to first hand experience; reading it also reminded me of a debt to two really great teachers, Stuart Henry at Duke and Ralph Wood at Wake Forest (now Baylor), and has prompted me to think about Advent, soon upon us, as a context yet again for the great pilgrimage.
