Book Corner

I hope you have all found some interesting reading matter during the summer. Are there any recommendations?

For this edition, I am pleased to present a variety of suggestions, including a fun colouring book and a preview of Advent and Christmas Books.

The Day The Revolution Began (Rethinking The Meaning of Jesus’s Crucifixion) by Tom Wright

Jesus’ crucifixion is the event at the heart of the Christian faith. With in-depth research and insight, Wright shows that Jesus’ death not only released us from the power of sin, but began a world-wide revolution that continues to this day. A revolution responsible for restoring and reconciling the whole of creation.  This book takes you to a new level in understanding the meaning of Jesus’ sacrifice; opening up its powerful and amazing implication, inspiring you with a renewed sense of purpose and hope, and reminding you of the crucial role you play in the world-transforming movement that Jesus started.

Life Of The Beloved and Our Greatest Gift by Henri Nouwen

Nouwen was one of the 20th century’s greatest spiritual writers; this book brings together two of the most inspirational pastoral works in a new edition. Life of the Beloved asks how to live a spiritual life and bridge the gap between secular and sacred as a human being being beloved of God. Our Greatest Gift is a meditation on dying. Thoughts on death can often bring fear, but the experience of dying and caring for the dying can become the deepest experience of love.
