Black Sheep and Prodigals

Dave Tomlinson
Authors:
Dave Tomlinson

'Very interesting, it's all about not alienating people before they even think about crossing the threshold of where you worship.' Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2Do you feel more at home on the edges of faith than at the centre? Would you call yourself a bit of a black sheep? Too often Christian spirituality has been associated with conformity, or a subculture where people don't feel able to ask questions. But Dave Tomlinson, author of How to be a bad Christian, doesn't think it has to be like this; instead, our spiritual communities can be 'laboratories of the Spirit' - places where we can explore issues of faith and spirit with openness, imagination and creativity. Welcome to black sheep spirituality - where doubts and questions are an essential part of faith; where difference of opinion is a sign of a secure community; where divine revelation is embraced wherever it is found - in the arts, science and the natural world as well as religious tradition; and where faith is something that is lived and practised rather than embalmed in beliefs or ritual.'Theology for anyone and everyone' BBC Radio 2

Grace

Michele Guinness
Authors:
Michele Guinness

Preparing for her husband's retirement from his parish, Michele Guinness, author of The Guinness Legend, decided to clear out the attic and in doing so rediscovered a trunk of letters, diaries, journals and notebooks, over one hundred years old, belonging to Grace Guinness, Peter's grandmother.Most famous for her unconventional marriage to renowned speaker and evangelist Henry Grattan Guinness, Grace's journals reveal an extraordinary woman who in many ways was before her time: a rebel against the constraints of her narrow religious upbringing, unconventional in her choice of husband, defiant of a society that frowned on a well-bred single mother going out to work, a businesswoman who ran her own hotel, and an early feminist who believed in birth control.She worked until she was in her seventies, read The Times every day, got through at least one book a week and could comment eruditely on politics, science, philosophy, theology, music and literature... This was a woman who wrote in a frank and sometimes risqué way about her life, love, hopes and fears, and encouraged others to break some of the taboos of their generation.In Grace, Michele Guinness weaves together the revealing contents of Grace's own words with her own to create a unique and inspiring interpretation of this remarkable woman's life and times.

Epiphanies of the Ordinary

Charlie Cleverly
Authors:
Charlie Cleverly

Through his work as a vicar both in Paris and Oxford, Charlie Cleverly has become passionate about the need to feed our love for God through every means possible, and to find ways of holding on to the love we have for God. This book is the result of that passion. Exploring moments in the Bible where God breaks through into the daily run of life, EPIPHANIES OF THE ORDINARY shows how God changed the lives of key Bible characters, and draws out the parallels with how God might intervene in our lives. With each event we get a clearer picture of the rounded relationship God wants with each of us, and how that is built up through the ins and outs of daily interaction, and occasionally through life-changing revelations. Culturally relevant and highly readable, Charlie Cleverly's challenge to follow God with our whole hearts will help you move on with God, and grab hold once more of the deep enthusiasm for God's plans that we all long for.

The Christian and the Pharisee

R.T. Kendall, David Rosen
Authors:
R.T. Kendall, David Rosen

What starts as Rabbi David Rosen's staunch defence of his tradition against Dr R. T. Kendall's use of 'Pharisee' as a derogatory term blossoms into a fascinating exchange in which the two men openly discuss the basic tenets of their respective faiths. They explore the common ground that these two related religions share, and discover the fundamental differences that set them apart.This groundbreaking publication is a rare opportunity to read the heartfelt correspondence of two prolific religious leaders, both acclaimed theologians, as they seek to both vigorously defend their own beliefs and allow themselves to be challenged by the claims of the other. As the discussion continues we see mutual respect grow and a strong friendship forged before the relationship is inevitably tested as they reach points of seemingly irreconcilable difference.Is it possible for Christianity and Judaism to proactively co-exist when the bedrock of one denies the rationale of the other? This dignified book poses such difficult questions whilst offering greater understanding and hope for the future.
