Love the World by David Adam (SPCK, £9.99 (£9); 978-0-281-07776-2).

This beautifully written book aims to increase our love for the world through reflecting on what we have discovered about it, and using this as a basis for further meditation and spiritual enrichment.

Redeeming Capitalism by Kenneth J. Barnes (Eerdmans, £21.99 (£19.80); 978-0-8028-7557-0).

For good or ill, the capitalism we have is the capitalism we have chosen, says Kenneth Barnes. Capitalism works, and the challenge before us is not to change its structure but to address the moral vacuum at the core of its current practice.”

The Paradise Tree: Personal prayer through poetry by John Davey (Sacristy Press, £9.99 (£9); 978-1-910519-64-6).

“The Paradise Tree is a beautiful devotional companion about the experience of God and giving expression to our inner spirituality.”

Royal Books and Holy Bones: Essays in medieval Christianity by Eamon Duffy (Bloomsbury, £25 (£22.50); 978-1-4729-5323-0).

In these vivid and approachable essays, Eamon Duffy engages with some of the central aspects of Western religion in the thousand years between the decline of pagan Rome and the rise of the Protestant Reformation.”

The Christian Middle Way: The case against Christian belief but for Christian faith by Robert M. Ellis (Christian Alternative, £17.99 (£16.20); 978-1-78535-756-5).

“In this book, the Middle Way is applied to the Christian tradition in order to argue for a meaningful and positive interpretation of it, without the absolute beliefs that many assume to be essential to Christianity. Faith as an embodied, provisional confidence is distinguished from dogmatic belief.”
