Book Corner

For the Festival Edition, I present a mixed selection of choices.

Turned By Divine Love by John Stroyan

This book, the fruit of prayer, theological reflection and human experience, evokes fresh prayer and thinking, about the key relationships in our lives, beginning with God.  Drawing on the rich Christian tradition of both East and West, it speaks of theology and spirituality to the head and heart.  A book of hope, encouraging us to make a fresh start with God and, entering more fully into the relationship of love to which he invites us, to go out and witness to this love. A unique bringing together of the riches of Eastern and Western Christianity.  

REF 2667 (BRF) (RRP £7.99) ASLAN £6.99

The Shed That Fed A Million Children by Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow

The story of how miraculous events and an overwhelming display of love led to the start of Mary’s Meals: a charity that may hold the key to eradicating child hunger.  This heart-warming, powerful testimony has never been more relevant.

REF 9649  (WILLIAM COLLINS)  (RRP £8.99) ASLAN £5.99

The Meal Jesus Gave Us by Tom Wright

A short, simple and thoroughly biblical explanation of the meaning and purpose of Holy Communion, designed to appeal to all ages. Wright explains its biblical origins, the different ways in which Christians have understood it over the centuries, and its crucial place in  the Christian life today.  With questions for reflection or discussion at the end of each chapter. Ideal for complete beginners, and anyone wanting a quick and easy refresher course.   

REF 4454    (SPCK) (RRP £7.99) ASLAN £5.99

 Can Science Explain Everything? By John Lennox

Can science explain everything?  Many think so.  Science has given us a lot: clean water, good healthcare.  We live in a time of rapid progress that may fix many of the problems we face, meaning many see no use for beliefs that offer answers to the mysteries of our universe.  Science has explained it, they assume. Science and religion just don’t mix.  Discover a fresh way of thinking about science and Christianity that dispels common misconceptions. They’re not opposed; they can and must mix to give us a full understanding of life and its meaning.

REF 2606 (GBC)  (RRP £7.99) ASLAN £6.99

The Infographic Bible by Karen Sawrey

The most popular book of all time, revolutionised for a modern generation.  For centuries, billions of people around the world have found solace, meaning and wisdom in the Bible.  But it can be a difficult book to engage with and understand. This pioneering new book is the Bible as you have never seen it before, using powerful infographics and data sourced by experts, to communicate the key biblical themes and narratives through diagrams and charts. Rather than providing a word-by-word translation, this Bible focuses on the meta-narrative, key points and themes, all in visual form, giving you insight into the bigger story and helping you understand the complex or abstract themes in a relevant way. By showing connections between the Old and New Testaments, you will find a deeper and more memorable insight into Scripture.   (Please note that the text on some pages is very small).

REF 2519 (WILLIAM COLLINS)   (RRP £25.00) ASLAN £17.00

Are We Brave Enough? By Ian Mayer

With churches focused on planning and brand building, this book asks you to consider 5 things that could change the landscape of church communities and help the Church be more effective in transforming the world.  With personal stories, this book champions the perseverance needed to see God’s Kingdom come, and looks at how groups can support the process.
