About Pilgrim Year
This award-winning, seven-volume book series offers a prayerful journey through the Christian calendar year.
Drawing on poetry, music, history, and tradition, Bell’s devotional reflections guide the reader through the seasons of Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Holy Week, Easter, and Ordinary time.
Steve’s unique reflections animate a rich spiritual tradition for the seasoned and the novice alike.
The two-disc companion CDs (corresponding to the series) features seasonal songs drawn from Steve’s three-decades catalogue of music.
Bell’s Pilgrim Year lays out a rich banquet of theology, memoir, poetry and song. The experience of reading, reflecting and then listening, was a bit like being at a really well-developed spiritual conference or retreat.

In Pilgrim Year, Steve Bell does something truly remarkable: he brings readers into a deeply thoughtful and creative exploration of the ancient Christian calendar. Readers familiar with the liturgical seasons and readers encountering them for the first time will find themselves caught up in Bell’s use of song, poetry and personal reflection.

These meditations combine a scholar’s learning, a poet’s precision, a musician’s imagination, an adult’s realism, and a Christian’s faith – and faithfulness.
Author / Theologian
The Pilgrim Year series is an insightful and deeply personal walk through the major seasons of the liturgical year. Everything we’ve come to love about Steve Bell is evident here: his warmth, his stories, and his rich theological insight. What a treasure!
