A course for the Christian journey and the 21st century, Pilgrim offers an approach of participation, not persuasion. Enquirers are encouraged to practise the ancient disciplines of biblical reflection and prayer, exploring key texts that have helped people learn and grow in faith since the early Church.
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.
Written by Stephen Cottrell, Steven Croft, Paula Gooder and Robert Atwell - with contributions from a wide ranger other leading Anglican figures - Pilgrim has been commissioned by the House of Bishops as a major contribution to the Church's efforts to grow - numerically and spiritually - in the coming decade.
'The Pilgrim course is a journey to the heart of God and to a living, personal relationship with Jesus Christ.' - The Archbishops of Canterbury and York.
