    Striking Out : Poems and stories from the Camino

    ,
    On a September morning, Bishop Stephen Cottrell said mass in his chapel, kissed his wife goodbye, stepped out of his front door and walked two miles to the nearest station. It was the start of a 700 kilometre pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. Choosing the least travelled route across northern Spain, he craved the solitude of the road and felt the small vulnerabilities of not knowing what each day would bring - where meals or a bed would be found - would be beneficial. As a busy diocesan bishop, he looked forward not so much to arriving at the great destination, but to what the journey itself would reveal to him. This is a spiritual diary of that journey, comprising reflections, prayer poems and evocative images from the road and poetry which Stephen Cottrell has written for many years. Arranged in four sections, each with seven paired reflections and poems, the shape of the book echoes the rhythm of walking and is an intimate and honest account of the profound effect of the age-old tradition of going on pilgrimage.

    The Nail: Being Part of the Passion

    In The Nail key witnesses describe Christ's crucifixion from their points of view. Each character considers the part he or she played in hammering the nails into Jesus. We learn how the Roman Centurion was just following orders, and that Pontius Pilate merely obeyed the wishes of the majority. By vividly expanding these stories and others, Stephen Cottrell invites us to ask ourselves if we would have behaved any differently in those situations.

    Each reflection consists of a biblical reading, a narrative from the perspective of the character and a short prayer. There are also practical suggestions on how to use the book as a fresh and unique Lent study course. The Nail is ideal for individual reflection or group study, and can also be readily used as an innovative liturgy for Good Friday.

    The Things He Carried

    The narrative of Holy Week is powerful and painful but, because we know how the story ends, it's easy to gloss over the difficult details and stay in the comfort zone of our understanding. Stephen Cotterell brings home, vividly and poignantly, the physical reality of the Passion story. This is a book to stimulate thought, provoke discussion and create space for contemplation. 'In order to understand the cross you need to stand under it...with the imagination and well as the mind...This book aims to help in that process...But however you use it - on your own or with others - I hope you will receive some small appreciation of just how much the cross weighs, and maybe pick it up yourself.' From the Introduction.
