A certain kind of homelessness, an experience of being a pilgrim on the way home, is central to the Christian imagination. Many have interpreted this pilgrimage as a journey into God – a kind of discarding of the world in movement toward God. In the wake of modernity, Christian pilgrimage was at times taken as growth into human independence, a divine parent setting humanity free to create its own worldly home. An important strand of biblical traditions presents an alternative: the story of humanity is a pilgrimage toward the world that has become God’s home and therefore our true home.

Professor Volf is the founding Director of the Yale Center for Faith and Culture. He has been described as one of the most celebrated theologians of our day.
