    Black Liturgies - Cole Arthur Riley

    2024-05-21T11:09:00

    This book has been marketed for “anyone asking what it means to be human”, but I suspect its actual audience will be more focused than that.

    It’s always a good sign when a book makes you miss your stop on the tube. One is that kind of book; it draws you in and forces you to consider just how good the gospel really is.

    Cardiff-based pastor Dai Hankey has written a lovely little book for Christians who aren’t giving up, but are weary. The author, a former skateboarder and DJ, points us to a longer, slower, deeper faith; or as he puts it in relation to Jesus: “his invitation to the weary is to ...

    A curious faith - Lore Ferguson

    2023-05-02T10:58:00

    A Curious Faith will especially help those who are perhaps flirting with deconstruction, asking questions about the faith they’ve inherited.

    Leadership Or Servanthood? - Hwa Yung

    2022-04-26T15:11:00

    There’s no doubting that the Church has a leadership problem. The roll call of high-profile leaders that have fallen, failed or been exposed in recent years is sobering. Obviously, human sin is the ultimate cause, but perhaps our model of leadership is also flawed, argues Hwa Yung, who offers a ...

    2021-12-17T15:24:00

    This is a short, punchy and readable look at the paradox of suffering in the Christian life. In contrast to many so-called evangelical accounts, Perkins shows us that an element of suffering is a regular, expected and transforming part of what it means to follow Jesus.
