Powerful Places on the Caminos de Santiago is not your usual guidebook to Spain. It's not about visiting places, it's about experiencing them. It invites you to explore a carefully chosen selection of places on the roads that lead to the pilgrimage shrine of Santiago de Compostela. These remarkable sites include the mountaintop shrine of a Black Virgin, a Knights Templar chapel concealed in a canyon, a hidden valley in the Pyrenees-to name a few. The book gives detailed descriptions of these powerful places, how to get there, and what to do when you arrive. Numerous maps, graphics, and photos bring the locations to life. If you are intrigued by the unusual; if you long to connect more deeply with the places you visit; if you have a nagging feeling that there's more to some places than meets the eye-this is the travel guide for you.

Originating at the 2011 conference of the International Academy of Practical Theology in Amsterdam, this volume explores the practical theological significance of desire. Although desire is central to many issues in practical theology and related disciplines, it is only rarely discussed under its own name. Three introductory chapters locate desire in concrete practices in the city and discuss the phenomenology, theology, and ethics of desire. Subsequent sections are organized around embodying desire, culturing desire, and transforming desire. The chapters include various kinds of desire, such as sexuality, consumerism, and spirituality. Perspectives from different contexts and religious traditions are offered in this rich and thought-provoking book. (Series: International Practical Theology - Vol. 16)
