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, all 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 served for many years as the associate director of Little Rock Scripture Study. He is the author of Hail Mary, Holy Bible: Sacred Scripture and the Mysteries of the Rosary, Pilgrim People: A Scriptural Commentary, and Welcome to the Feast: The Story of the Eucharist in Scripture, all published by Liturgical Press. He is also a contributor to The Bible Today.Review:
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).Bill Huebsch

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.Stephen J. Binz

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.Abbot Jerome Kodell, OSB
