A creative invitation to those who are on the margins of the church

Recent research in the sociology of religion indicates that around one in five Americans are religiously "liminal," that is, they are on the fence about affiliating with a faith or a congregation. Traveling Home is an invitation to those people who are standing on the edges or just coming into the Church. It makes a case for why Christianity can make a difference by taking the reader on a spiritual journey through the story and ancient wisdom of the Bible. It shows the reader how to find a place within this great cosmic adventure.

Why Christianity at all? How do we understand where we fit into a bigger picture? Anyone asking these questions, including people exploring other liturgical traditions, will find this book of interest. It is also a tool for clergy teaching newcomer/inquirer classes.

MARK R. KOWALEWSKI has been Dean and Rector at St. John's Cathedral since 2006. One of his passions is primary Christian formation. He holds a doctorate focusing on Christian Ethics and the Sociology of Religion from the University of Southern California. He has served as both priest and professor and written widely on both Christian Ethics and the sociology of religion.
