P is for Pilgrim
The Christian Faith: A Journey from A to Z
By the Archbishop of York, Stephen Cottrell

Available from 15 February 2024

In this handsome hardback book – beautifully illustrated throughout with original lino print illustrations by Jack Seymour – Archbishop Stephen explores and explains nearly 80 key Christian terms, ideas, concepts, people, events and occasions concisely and clearly. It will be a valuable resource for adults and older children alike, both those wanting to understand more about the Christian faith as well as those who are already Christians. It would also make an ideal Baptism, Holy Communion or Confirmation gift.

‘This is a book that I’m sure would have helped me when I first explored Christianity… it explores and explains most of the key concepts and ideas that underpin the Christian faith and the deep mysteries of some beautiful but complicated words.’ – The Most Reverend & Right Honourable Stephen Cottrell, Archbishop of York
