- A compilation of thoughts and writings from giants of the faith
This little book is a selection from writers of many countries and centuries. Joy And Strength For The Pilgrim's Day contains thoughts of courage, faith, hope, and love, to cheer and inspire the pilgrim in his daily journey, whether it be in clouds or sunshine. It is to remind him of what he can do to help his fellow-travelers. With this book may his evening and morning be serene as in the old story—"The Pilgrim they laid in a large upper chamber, whose window opened towards the sun-rising: the name of the chamber was Peace; where he slept till break of day, and then he awoke and sang."
