Saint Augustine on the Resurrection of Christ: Teaching, rhetoric and reception by Gerald O’Collins (OUP £16.99 (£15.30); 978-0-19-879954-2).

"Examines Augustine's thought on Christ's resurrection and the reception of those ideas in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and fills a gap in Augustine studies by focusing on his sophisticated account and defence of Christ's resurrection in ancient Christianity."

 

Experiencing Christ’s Love: Establishing a life of worship, prayer, study, service and reflection by John Twisleton (BRF, £6.99 (£6.30); 978-085746-517-7).

"Well-known writer John Twisleton reminds us of Jesus' gracious challenge to love God with heart, soul and mind, and to love our neighbour and ourselves. Against the backdrop of the message of God's unconditional love in Jesus Christ, the author delivers a wake-up call to the basic Christian patterns of worship, prayer, study, service and reflection."

 

The Burning Time: The story of the Smithfield martyrs by Virginia Rounding (Macmillan, £20 (£18); 978-0-230-77231-1).

"Smithfield, settled on the fringes of Roman London, was once a place of revelry. Yet in Tudor England, Smithfield had another, more sinister use: the public execution of heretics. Spanning the reigns of British history's most remarkable dynasty, The Burning Time is a vivid insight into an era in which what was orthodoxy one year might be dangerous heresy the next."

 

Protestants: The radicals who made the modern world by Alec Ryrie (William Collins, £25 (£22.50); 978-0-00-746503-3).

"On the 500th anniversary of Luther's rebellion, this spectacular global history traces the revolutionary faith that shaped the modern world. Five hundred years ago Protestant Christianity began with one stubborn monk. Today, it includes a billion people across the globe. The upheaval Martin Luther triggered inspired one of the most creative and destructive movements in human history."

 

Preaching: Communicating faith in an age of scepticism by Timothy Keller (Hodder, £9.99 (£9); 978-1-444-70218-7). New in paperback.

"Timothy Keller is known for his insightful, down-to-earth sermons and talks that help people understand themselves, encounter Jesus and apply the Bible to their lives. In this accessible guide for pastors and laypeople alike, Keller helps readers learn to present the Christian message of grace in a more engaging, passionate and compassionate way."
