Autumn 2019 issue

Book Corner

For your Autumn reading, I present a  selection of slightly unusual suggestions.

The Joy Of God by Sister Mary David

Mary was a Nun of the Benedictine Community of Cecilia on the Isle of Wight. After a distinguished teaching career, she joined religious life in 1985.  For 22 years until her death from cancer, she guided the young nuns with enthusiasm, wisdom and wit. The spirituality in these pages shows her faith through her notes to the novices on issues of relevance to the wider world. What is the meaning of suffering?  How can we live with people who annoy us? How do we relate to a God we can’t see? How do we make decisions?  Her teaching is profound and practical, suffused in faith in God’s joy in our work, leisure, community and family life, but above all in our view and understanding of ourselves.

A Theory Of Everything  (That Matters) by Alister McGrath

In 1919, the results of an experiment were announced, proving Einstein’s theory of relativity. What does this mean for religious belief,and specifically Christianity? Does it mean the death of God?

In ‘A Theory Of Everything (that Matters)’ Alister McGrath explores these questions, giving an overview of Einstein’s thought and scientific theories, including his nuanced thinking on the differences between the scientific enterprises and beliefs outside its realm.

Is Jesus History? by John Dickson

How seriously can we take the historical sources for the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Of Nazareth? Historian Dr. John Dickson unpacks how the field of history works, giving readers the tools to evaluate for themselves what we can confidently say about figures like the Emperor Tiberius, Alexander The Great, Pontius Pilate, and, of course, Jesus. If Jesus really did exist, what are we to make of his own claims and what would any of it mean for us today?

Jesus On Food by David Muskett

When Jesus spoke, he often used everyday experiences to teach valuable spiritual lessons. Here David Muskett looks at the many times when Jesus used food and mealtimes to reveal principles of God’s Kingdom, finding parallels in our British love of baking and dining. These short sermons will leave you inspired and empowered to live out your everyday life from an eternal heavenly perspective.
