Question: Could you please tell me how similar/different A Pilgrim’s Journal: Chartres Cathedral is compared to Praying the Chartres Labyrinth: A Pilgrim’s Guide and Praying the Labyrinth?
Jill’s response: A Pilgrim’s Journal was designed for week-long pilgrimages to the cathedral. It uses a pure journal format whereas the Praying the Chartres Labyrinth is more of an introduction to the theme of pilgrimage as well as an invitation to explore. Praying the Labyrinth focuses on the labyrinth itself, whereas the other two bring the larger cathedral context into focus. A Pilgrim’s Journal uses an 8 x11 inch format and is designed for deeper exploration in terms of space provided.
Question: I would like to buy one or more of your books for a Jewish friend. Which would be most appropriate?
Jill’s response: Labyrinth and Song of Songs might be the one. It is poetry about the labyrinth set beside the poetry of Songs of Songs, one of the books in the Hebrew Scriptures. You might also consider either Pondering the Labyrinth, which is much more practical, just letting your friend know that in the three-page section on Hebrew and Christian Scriptures there are several passages from the New Testament listed. Or, the same would be true of Living the Labyrinth where there are both Hebrew and Chrisitan Scriptures used in the Scripture section.
