Publisher's Description

What does it mean today to be part of a people whose very identity is rooted in the belief that they belong to God and that their lives are a pilgrimage of faith?

Pilgrim People is a journey through Scripture that examines how the call of God has led the faithful in both Old and New Testaments to regard themselves as pilgrims. God's call sometimes leads and sometimes sends, and the destinations can be new and wondrous or even dark and dangerous. But it is not the destination that transforms biblical journeys into pilgrimages. Instead, just as it was for people of Scripture, our footsteps are set in the right direction when we discover that God is our companion on the journey.

Readers will encounter major landmarks of salvation history, al examined with insightful research and sprinkled with lively reflections on the contemporary call to every Christian to follow God as a faithful pilgrim.

Clifford M. Yeary is the associate director of Little Rock Scripture Study, for which he writes and revises study materials and presents wrap-up lectures. He holds a master's in pastoral studies and a BA in Old Testament literature. He is also associate editor of A Year of Sundays and has contributed to The Bible Today, both published by Liturgical Press.

Editorial Reviews

In Pilgrim People, author Clifford Yeary reintroduces us to a series of carefully chosen biblical stories, each of which becomes, in his excellent commentary, another stopping point on the Journey of Faith. From Abraham & Sarah to those brave women at the Tomb, each stop along the way is a serious reminder that we always walk with God. This book is the perfect refresher for the Christian who has grown weary along the way. You will be reminded here once again that ‘the favors of the Lord are not exhausted . . . they are renewed each morning’ (page 42).

I recommend this guidebook for all companions on life's journey. Clifford Yeary inserts our own sojourn into the inspiring line of biblical ancestors who have envisioned their lives as pilgrimage. He shows how journeying with this perspective offers our lives direction, purpose, and deep meaning.

Author of Introduction to the Bible: A Catholic Guide to Studying Scripture

Clifford Yeary takes us on a brisk walk through the Scriptures, highlighting the passages that describe the journey of the people of God traveling together on a pilgrimage of faith. This is refreshing in an age of individualism that tends to privatize religion. We are not alone in our search for God. We belong to a ‘community,’ we share ‘communion,’ we are a ‘church.’ We join a journey already started and charted by God. Yeary leads us back to the biblical roots of our ecclesial identity. His book is a good companion to The People of God, Chapter Two of Vatican Council II’s Constitution on the Church.
