    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.

    Home by another way: Biblical meditations through the Christian year

    , ,
    Written by one of the world's greatest preachers, these insightful meditations began their life as beautifully crafted sermons that explore the meanings of the major seasons and holy days of the Christian year. Reviewer Lucy Winkett, Rector of St James's Picadilly, writes: "This is a deeply compassionate book that takes seriously what it's like to live in the world now, while holding out the scriptural hope of a life not yet imagined. Barbara Brown Taylor tells new parables that reveal meaning in everyday holiness, and the thoroughly human states of confusion, suffering and joy of which she is keenly aware.This book is for all who want to believe but can't quite get there, or for those whose jaded spirit needs a long cool drink at a freshwater spring. Reading these reflections is like being drenched in grace." Recently voted one of the world's top ten contemporary spiritual sages, Barbara Brown Taylor is Professor of Religion and Philosophy at Piedmont College in Demorest, Georgia. Her previous books include An Altar in the World and Leaving Church.

    Strangely Warmed

    Strangely Warmed is a collection of short pieces which take a wry look at the world and reflect on questions that arise form the everyday. The advertising slogan, the church jumble sale, the Routemaster bus: all can unexpectedly bring us close to God. Reviews of this refreshing book include:'Pious claptrap and hand-wringing sanctimonious drivel. If that is what you are expecting you are going to be sadly disappointed. These meditations from a parish priest are witty, erudite, self-deprecating, eloquent and thoughtful. They are even quite short. Strangely Warmed? Yes, I actually was.' Ian Hislop 'Andrew Rumsey's meditations break the mould of Lent books. His eye for the ridiculous, his ear for the telling, resonating phrase, and his deep but refreshingly different spirituality merge effortlessly. Think Spike Milligan doing Thought for the Day. You will laugh out loud one minute and want to pray out loud the next. Many Christians suffer from irony deficiency. Rumsey might just be the cure.' Tom Wright.

    The Things He Said: The story of the first Easter Day

    ,
    Many a popular Good Friday devotion is based on Jesus' seven last words from the Cross. But there isn't the same emphasis on the words Jesus spoke on Easter Day - words, as it were, from an empty tomb. Following the resurrection, we would expect the triumphant 'I have risen from the dead!' Yet Jesus' statements are so different, so apparently unremarkable, that they are often overlooked. Each Gospel gives a different account of the very first words of the risen Lord. This book reveals how these words, and the events that followed, speak to us as powerfully as the words from the cross. They illuminate our understanding of the resurrection, helping us to penetrate its meaning and significance. They also speak of God's purpose for us today as we try to discover what it means to be an Easter people. The Christian faith stands or falls on the resurrection of Jesus; without it, says St Paul, we are to be most pitied. In this revelatory book of surprising reflections, Stephen Cotterell's retelling of the Easter story encourages us to slow down and hear it properly - perhaps for the very first time.

    Jesus Christ – the alpha and the omega

    As we pass through the weeks of Lent, our gaze is drawn ineluctably to the Son of God. The crucified Christ fills our gaze as we move closer to Easter, but in order to grasp more fully the scope and significance of his supreme sacrifice, we need to embrace and believe in the whole Christ, Alpha and Omega, rather than focusing only on isolated aspects of his life, such as his teaching or his example - or even his death and resurrection. There are two journeys to make in this book. The first takes us on an extended exploration of the person and work of Jesus Christ, from the word present before the creation to the Messiah reigning in glory at the end of time. The second journey is one of devotion and discipleship through the events of Holy Week, a journey made in the light of the earlier exploration and enriched by all that we have learned as a result.

    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.

    Seize the Day

    , , , ,
    Dietrich Bonhoeffer's faith-driven resistance to the Nazis during World War II resulted in his execution. Multitudes have been inspired by the hauntingly powrful words of this man who was willing to die for his convictions. In this collection of 365 meditations Dr Charles Ringma allows us to experience the power of Bonhoeffer's words in a way that challenges us to live out our discipleship daily - combining personal spirituality with an active concern for those around us. These daily meditations on Bonhoeffer's writings may make you uncomfortable. But if you are willing to wrestle - as Bonhoeffer did - with what it means to be a follower of Christ, you'll be empowered to seize each day.
