Everyday Life, Influences & Suggested Reading, Spiritual Growth, The Inner Journey
We need a God who knows about painTo speak of God in pain, says Barbara Brown Taylor, is to embrace both the biblical accounts of Christ's suffering and death, and also the God who is present in our pain. This wise and compassionate book seeks to understand that presence with characteristic grace, sensitivity, profound biblical insight and truthfulness to human experience. Part One explores the ways that God's presence can be discerned in the pains we experience in life: disillusionment, despair, betrayal, anger, enmity, family feuds, insult and injury. A series of reflections on biblical texts asks whether any good news can be found in pain. Part Two contemplates God's suffering in the unique pain of Good Friday. Reflecting on the story of Christ's crucifixion, Barbara Brown Taylor goes in search of what God went to such great lengths to reveal to us. God in Pain engages with life's most complex mystery with honesty and finds grounds for hope.£10.99
Culture & Mission, Everyday Life, Spiritual Growth
Money is the key to happiness Work hard, play hard Look out for number onePopular culture is full of phrases like these, telling us the best way to love, the right things to buy, the right body shape to have, the right people to hang out with. These messages are everywhere we look, 24 hours a day. But what if there was another way to live? What is we choose to love differently: to stand against injustice, to live life for more than just ourselves, to dare to be unpopular? Guvna B is rebelling against the status quo, and he's calling you to join him. It's time to flip the script, to demonstrate another way to live, to find freedom in going against the grain.

Culture & Mission, Everyday Life, Lent & Easter, Resources for the Christian Year, Spiritual GrowthIn his first full-length book, Justin Welby looks at the subject of money and materialism. Designed for study in the weeks of Lent leading up to Easter, Dethroning Mammon reflects on the impact of our own attitudes, and of the pressures that surround us, on how we handle the power of money, called Mammon in this book. Who will be on the throne of our lives? Who will direct our actions and attitudes? Is it Jesus Christ, who brings truth, hope and freedom? Or is it Mammon, so attractive, so clear, but leading us into paths that tangle, trip and deceive? Archbishop Justin explores the tensions that arise in a society dominated by Mammon's modern aliases, economics and finance, and by the pressures of our culture to conform to Mammon's expectations. Following the Gospels towards Easter, this book asks the reader what is means to dethrone Mammon in the values and priorities of our civilisation and in our own existence. In Dethroning Mammon, Archbishop Justin challenges us to use Lent as a time of learning to trust in the abundance and grace of God.£9.99
Everyday Life, Spiritual GrowthIn this beautifully illustrated book, Margaret Silk uncovers the shimmer of the sacred in the familiar places of everyday city living – the places where we work, live and choose to gather – and invites us to notice and respond to its glow in our own surroundings. In her words, The sacred is all around us, all the time. It is the reality in which we live and move and have our being. But it is our own lives that make this holiness incarnate, and make our places of living and working sacred, and therefore life-giving to all. This book will guide and inspire you too, to notice and engage with this transforming presence in places where you might least expect to find it.£9.99

Everyday Life, The Inner Journey'When I fell ill and stayed ill, I felt like God had chopped me off at the ankles. I yelped in pain and indignation, I felt abandoned, diminished and finished.

Other conditions creep in until life skills are suddenly out of date. Work, socialising and hobbies are out of reach. It's a scary new world. Emily Ackerman knows this world only too well.

She knows what it feels like to wait, year after year, while God works through her suffering, to fulfil his plans for her life. This book is about fighting back against illness; about reclaiming your life now you're ill. You'll find strategies, encouragement, practical advice and fresh ways to view your situation.
