BROTHER Victor-Antoine d’Avila-Latourette believes that it can be too easy to settle on one fixed picture of Christ in prayer, and that doing so can stunt spiritual development. So he has written Christ the Merciful, a collection of 47 reflections on different names and images of Jesus (Paraclete Press, £10.99 (£9.90); 978-1-61261-772-5).

The biblical meditations in Fiona Stratta’s third book, Walking with Biblical Women of Courage, are written in the first person, imagining the thoughts, experiences, and feelings of mainly lesser-known scriptural characters, such as Abigail, Phoebe, and Eunice. Each one ends with questions for reflection by individuals or group discussion (BRF, £7.99 (£7.20); 978-0-85746-533-7).

Laszlo Gallusz hopes that his work on The Seven Prayers of Jesus will inspire others in their spiritual lives. He explores their context, theology, and meaning for today (IVP, £9.99 (£9); 978-1-78359-567-9).

Our Father: Reflections on the Lord’s Prayer by Pope Francis is the product of a conversation by the Pope with Fr Marco Pozza, a priest and prison chaplain from Padua, Italy, supplemented by meditations on the prayer from throughout his pontificate(Rider, £9.99 (£9); 978-1-84604-590-5).
