Here is a selection of choices taken from the Bible Reading Fellowship Summer 2012 Leaflet and their latest Prayer and Spirituality Leaflet.

Jesus Name Above all Names by Anne Le Tissier.

Often straightforward, devotionally based Bible study material on 32 names and titles ascribed to Jesus in scripture. From ‘Advocate’ to ‘Word of God’, the studies consider what you can learn about who Jesus is and what he has done for you from these different names and titles. The material includes extended reflection on the theme, questions for response, prayers and suggestions for further Bible reading. Prepared from articles originally published in ‘Woman Alive’ magazine.

Walking With Gospel Women by Fiona Stratta.

Twenty-five reflective monologues drawing on the voices and stories of women who appear in the Gospel narratives, includes linked group discussion material (which could also be used by individuals) based on the relevant Bible passages. An introduction explains how to use the book, including how to facilitate group use. The book’s approach is inspired by Ignatian spirituality: imaginatively putting yourself in the context of a particular story (especially one which may be very familiar) in order to draw out fresh lessons for today.
