Pilgrim is a teaching and discipleship resource from the Church of England that helps enquirers and new Christians explore what it means to travel through life with Jesus Christ.
A Christian course for the twenty-first century, Pilgrim offers an approach of participation, not persuasion. Enquirers are encouraged to practice the ancient disciplines of biblical reflection and prayer, exploring key texts that have helped people since the earliest days of the Christian faith.
Assuming little or no knowledge of the Christian faith, Pilgrim can be used at any point on the journey of discipleship and by every tradition in the Church of England.
Pilgrim is made up of two parts: Follow and Grow. Follow introduces the Christian faith for complete beginners, while Grow aims to develop a deeper level of discipleship in those who have turned to Christ.
This seventh volume, the third title in the Grow stage, explores the Bible: what it is, how it was given to us and how we should read it. Its six sessions combine simple prayer, Bible reflection in the lectio divina style, an article by a modern writer, and time for questions and reflection, and are supported by free online audio and video resources.
The Most Reverend David Moxon is the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Representative to the Holy See and Director of the Anglican Centre in Rome. He was formerly the Bishop of Waikato, Senior Bishop of the New Zealand Dioceses, and an Archbishop of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia. He was awarded a Knighthood of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the 2014 New Year's Honours.
Robert Atwell is the Bishop of Exeter and the current Chair of the Church of England's Liturgical Committee. He is the compiler of Celebrating the Saints, Celebrating the Seasons, and three anthologies of readings for special occasions: Gift, Love and Remember. His other books include Spiritual Classics from the Early Church, The Contented Life and The Good Worship Guide: Leading liturgy well. He is a co-author of the Pilgrim course.
Rosemary Lain-Priestley is a priest and writer, and also works as Dean of Women in the central area of the London Diocese and chairs the Church of England’s national network of advisers in women’s ministry. She worked as an immigration adviser on marriage and asylum applications prior to serving her curacy. She then worked for seven years in the diverse community of St Martin-in-the-Fields church, London.
Vivienne Faull, now Dean at York Minster, was the first woman appointed by the Church of England to a cathedral deanery when she became dean at Leicester in 2000. She has been at the forefront of the campaign to improve the role of women in the Church and is one of the Church's highest-ranking women
Lead us onto deep thought.
I thought this was superb and I found it really inspirational. I particularly enjoyed the section on wisdom for the journey.
