Book Review: The Way Under our Feet - A Spirituality of Walking. By Graham B Usher

Reviewer: David Gleed
My attention Instantly grabbed by the title, I was further delighted to find the text wonderfully light and very readable - just right for warm spring days in the 'lockdown' garden!
The book moves effortlessly from one facet of walking to another - pilgrimage, the significance of the Emmaus walk, labyrinths and so on - carrying the reader on a journey that draws you towards the next page.
Along the way there are some fascinating observations, some more unexpected than others - I was amazed to learn hip operations can be undertaken with the patient fully conscious and with the expectation that the patient is up and starting to be mobile later that day or early the next!
Walking with our three-mile-an-hour God, is the way to go! That message shines through the book!
So, read and be inspired - I was!
