"Alfred Regnery journeyed on foot, bicycle, and local transport along the pilgrim routes of the old world, recording the indelible traces of Christianity in a continent that is now trying hard to rub them out. Regneryas acute observations of the people and places along his way, and his sensitive response to the holiness that still lingers around them, make for fascinating reading. While accomplishing remarkable feats of physical endurance he also pursued his own spiritual journey, from scepticism to Christianity and thence into the Catholic Church. His touching account of this is not the least of the bookas many charms, and his account of the state of Europe today should be read by all who are concerned with Western civilisation and its fate." -- Roger Scruton
InUnlikely Pilgrim, Alfred Regnery has provided a fascinating account of a series of unique trips to parts of Europe and the Middle East, which give a remarkable insight into the origins and significant aspects of Christianity and Western Civilization. Much more than a travelogue, this highly readable book includes both stories of high adventure and perceptive observations of the peoples and places that have affected the course of history. A particularly compelling feature of this rewarding book is the author's personal reflections about the impact of these experiences on hisown life and philosophy. -- Ed Meese III
Al Regnery's Unlikely Pilgrimis the story of grace at work in a life lived with integrity and courageaand an encouragement to others to find The Way. -- George Weigel
