Chris King has put together Pathways for Pilgrims: Discovering the spirituality of the Iona Community in 28 days. For each day, there are a short piece on community experience, a suggested (very short) Bible reading, a prayer, and suggestions for reflection. Each week is given a different theme: engaging with God, with the Church, with the world, and as community (Wild Goose, £10.50 (9.45); 978-1-84952-218-2). CT Bookshop (Use Code CT611)
