In this biblical study for lay readers, Sara Covin Juengst writes on images of the road and journey found in Scripture and their implications for the Christian journey. She examines contemporary problems such as risk taking, loneliness, uprootedness, mobility, coping with change, and decision making at crucial life crossroads. She examines these critical issues in the light of what it means to be “followers of the way” in what many see as a post-Christian era. She provides theological reflection on the significance of roads and paths in Scripture as well as the metaphorical value of these terms in conveying direction, purpose, and lifestyle. Chapters include: Leaving Home: The Lure of the Road; On the Road Again: Coping with Change; The Lonely Road; At the Crossroads; Followers of the Way; The Straight Path and the Hard Road; and The Road Home.
