Souljourn - a booktalk/signing with author Rev. Jim Burklo
After experiencing an apparition in a cactus, a quirky teenager named Joshua T. Stoneburner goes on a quest to visit every religious community he can find. Each leaves him with fresh clues to the meaning of his vision, enchants him with new relationships, and bewilders him with more questions. Hop in Josh's pickup truck for a wild souljourn through the spiritual landscape of the most religiously diverse country in the world - America.
"The spiritual journey is at the heart of what it means to be human and America, with its stunningly diverse devotions, may be the pefect place to undertake such a quest. Reverend Jim Burklo, someone who has gone through his own 'souljourn' and facilitated the journeys of many others, has written a wonderful guide to the cosmic, both without and within This book will enrich you!" - Eboo Patel, Founder and President, Interfaith Youth Core
