Grace and Mortgage: The Language of Faith and the Debt of the World: Peter Selby. A must for all who know something is wrong with our credit-based economy, but want to understand what it is and how to change it. Delusion and fantasy underpins the world’s economic system, while debt’s corrosive effect impoverishes the poorest and despoils the earth. Peter Selby compares the world view with that of the New Testament where we learn that the God to whom we owe everything has cancelled our debts. Peter Selby shows that the New Testament stands in stark contradiction to the money-morality which has led to the greed and fear that now threaten to engulf us. £12.00, (RRP £15)

Christianity and Social Order: William Temple: This brilliant seminal work, first published in 1942, explores the extent to which the Church and Christians in general have a right to interfere in matters of Society and State. While it counsels against the Church dabbling in party politics, it lays down principles upon which social policies should be founded. William Temple defines those matters on which the Church’s voice should be heard and those on which, through lack of competence, it should be silent. His arguments are illustrated by reference to scripture, church history and issues which were contemporary at the time of writing. William Temple was Archbishop of Canterbury from 1942 until his death in 1944. He was known as ‘The People’s Archbishop’ and fought for social and economic reforms. ‘Its arguments are just as relevant today; indeed, we can only regret that as a nation, we have made so little progress in the directions that Temple prophetically indicated.’ Third Way ‘This book has been described as one of the foundation piers of the welfare state.’ Times Educational Supplement. USD $15

Seeking Meaning – Prayer as Quest:  Ian Corbett and Chris Dunton. An elderly priest, in mourning the absence of a young lover, is led to consider wider issues of loss and isolation and where meaning is to be found in our lives. This involves exploring issues such as the hiddenness of God and the limitations to what answers may be found. A long-standing friend and academic interleaves comments on the relationship between theology, literature and the arts which are so central to this quest.

A Glimpsed-at Reality A liberal Anglo-Catholic priest reflects on her ordinary life, from a few months before Lockdown to a few years after, written in the Japanese literary form of haibun - a diary of memoir, travel and images of the natural world, in prose and poem.
…a collection of life’s gems: beauty, wisdom and meaning are found in the routine of an ‘ordinary’ life. Everyday occurrences become ‘extraordinary’. Read it and be delighted!'
