    The Meaning is in the Waiting: The Spirit of Advent

    , ,
    This is the first in a series of books commissioned in consultation with John Sentamu. Paula Gooder provides a profoundly biblical guide to the season of Advent and explores its central theme of waiting (something we are not good at in our modern culture) in the company of the biblical characters: Abraham and Sarah who waited for a child, Isaiah and the prophets who waited for judgement and redemption, John the Baptist whose role was to wait in the wilderness until the prophecies he foretold were realised, Mary whose waiting began in pregnancy and continued as she stood at the foot of the cross. Arranged for daily reading, this offers an exquisite meditation on the spirituality of waiting – the active doing of nothing – as a way of enhancing our lives and bringing us closer to God.

    The Mystery of Everything is a new and original Lent course by Hilary Brand, which takes the multi-award wining film about Stephen Hawking, The Theory of Everything, as its starting point.

The course is based around five weekly group sessions entitled: ● The experience of wonder ● The enigma of weakness ● The complexity of relationships ● The encounter with frailty ● The hope beyond brokenness Each session includes extracts from the film, group discussion, questions, exercises and meditations, suggestions for individual reading and related Bible passages for further daily reading.

    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.

    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.

    The Way of the Desert: Daily Bible Readings through Lent to Easter

    , ,
    In the Bible the desert is a place of punishment and discipline, but also of blessing and love’s reawakening. Both Jesus and the people of Israel before him spent time in the desert, learning what it meant to be chosen and loved and holy. Yet while the people of the exodus frequently got it wrong, providing some cautionary tales for us to learn from, Jesus himself constantly got it right, offering a perfect model for us to follow. In The Way of the Desert  Andrew Watson takes us on a Lenten journey from Ash Wednesday to Easter Day, from the parting of the Red Sea to Israel’s entry into the promised land. Combining these Old Testament scriptures with insight from the Gospels, he reveals the continuing relevance of the exodus story to all who would seek to follow Christ.
