The Journey to the Mayflower: God’s Outlaws and the Invention of Freedom

2020 sees the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower, the ship that took the Pilgrim Fathers to the New World.

The Knowable God by Peter Brain

The Knowable God by Peter Brain

The Knowable God comprises twenty-three self-contained chapters on the key issues raised and the emphases made in John's Gospel. It is not a critical commentary nor a set of devotional meditations; it is rather an exposition of key episodes, characters and themes, always trying to interpret the text for our own time.

Crucicentric, Congregational, and Catholic: The Generous Orthodoxy of Alan P F Sell

Crucicentric, Congregational, and Catholic: The Generous Orthodoxy of Alan P F Sell

This book presents a synthesis of Alan Sell's theology drawn from his voluminous publications. What emerges is a theology rooted in and flowing from the Cross-Resurrection event. The result is a generous, if eclectic, expression of Christian orthodoxy. The critical phase of the book turns upon the question whether Sell's "generous" orthodoxy is generous enough: do his theological conclusions actually do justice to the life and ministry of Jesus? And secondly, are they credible in..

Church of Snails by Lucy Berry

Church of Snails by Lucy Berry

"Churches too often sift people and situations, involving themselves only with those people and things which won’t embarrass, hurt or challenge; we decide who are the sheep and who are the goats. Our decisions are plain for the world to see. Sometimes they look funny or silly. Sometimes just ugly." Lucy Berry, poet-in-residence for the Joint Public Issues Team (JPIT) and formerly for the Jeremy Vine Show on BBC Radio 2, has wrestled with the essential meaning of the Christian life and Church for..
