Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I am about to share here a story about stars that dance. . . . If the very thought of seeing stars dance piques your curiosity at some deep level of your soul, then pay attention to what follows, for the walk to the Field of Stars, to Santiago de Compostela, is a journey that has the power to change lives forever.

- from the introduction

Pilgrimage is a strange notion to our modern, practical minds. How many of us have walked to a distant holy place in order to draw nearer to God? Yet the pilgrimage experience is growing these days in various parts of the world.

Seeking to take stock of his life, Kevin Codd set out in July 2003 on a pilgrimage that would profoundly change his life. To the Field of Stars tells the fascinating story of his unusual spiritual and physical journey on foot across Spain to Santiago de Compostela, the traditional burial place of the apostle James the Greater. Each brief chapter chronicling Codd's thirty-five-day trek is dedicated to one or two days on the road. Codd shares tales of other pilgrims, his own changes of perspective, and his challenges and triumphs along the way - all told with a disarming candor.

Seen through the eyes of a Catholic priest who honors the religious worldview that originally gave rise to these medieval odysseys, pilgrimage comes to life and takes on new meaning in these pages.

Synopsis:

"Pilgrimage" is a strange notion to our modern, practical minds. How many of us have walked to a distant holy place in order to draw nearer to God? Yet the pilgrimage experience is growing these days in various parts of the world.

Synopsis:

???The story of stars dancing over a field in a faraway land may so draw you away from the ordinary business of daily life that you find yourself, quite to your surprise, in a new world of unexpected adventures and remarkable people and some very profound mysteries.???

? from the introduction

???Pilgrimage??? is a strange notion to our modern, practical minds. How many of us have sought on foot a distant holy place in order to come close to God and speak to him where he may hear best? The idea is laughable in this age of cars and churches on every corner. Nevertheless, looking for a way to take stock of his life, priest Kevin Codd set out on a pilgrimage that would change his life.

To the Field of Stars tells the compelling story of this modern-day pilgrim??'s spiritual and physical journey on foot across Spain to Santiago de Compostela, the traditional burial place of the apostle James the Greater.

Seen through the eyes of a Catholic priest who is respectful of the spirituality and religious worldview that originally gave rise to medieval pilgrimage, this is a fascinating and engaging account of a most unusual journey.
