As Lent begins on 1st March, here is a preview of some of the titles available.  

Dethroning Mammon Making Money Serve Grace by Justin Welby

An insightful exploration of money and materialism. Welby reflects on the power of money and the attitudes that surround it.  Who will be on the throne of our lives? Who will direct our actions?  Is it Jesus, who brings truth, hope and freedom? Or is it Mammon (money) leading us into paths that tangle and deceive? Explore the tensions that arise in a society dominated by finance, and the pressures of our culture to conform. Following the Gospels, this book asks what it means to dethrone Mammon and learn to trust in the abundance and grace of God.

The Things He Did by Stephen Cottrell

In one extraordinary week Jesus rides into Jerusalem; shows righteous rage in the temple; eats with the wrong sort of people; lets a woman anoint him; washes his disciples’ feet; breaks bread and shares wine; prays passionately; and lets himself be arrested…..Jesus stands in the prophetic tradition of those who embody what they teach.  The things he did were carefully planned each with political and religious significance as Jesus moved towards his greatest and final act.
