In Everything Must Change he unveils a fresh and provocative vision of Jesus and his teachings, and how his message of hope can ignite purpose and passion to change the economic, environmental, military, political and social crises that have overtaken our world.

Rescuing the Church from Consumerism by Mark Clavier.

Clavier examines how people are initiated into a consumer culture during childhood and thus drawn into pursuing a vocation as consumers by means of various quasi-sacramental rites and practices. The upshot of this is that the Church today is composed primarily of men and women whose lives are situated more within a consumer culture than within a distinctively Christian one. In order for the Church to free itself, the author believes it must reclaim a sacramental identity that is grounded in a narrative tradition and realised in real, local worshipping communities.

Women of the Bible by Margaret McAlister.

An elegantly illustrated collection of ten favourite Bible stories with an interesting twist. Margaret McAlister imaginatively retells these tales from the point of view of the women involved. Noah’s wife, Miriam, Ruth, Mary mother of Jesus, Pilate’s wife and Mary Magdalene are among some of the women who put their side of the story forward.
