The Heart is a Noisy Room: Your inner voices, why they matter — and how to win them over by Ronald Boyd-Macmillan (Hodder & Stoughton, £14.99 (£13.50); 978-1-473-67714-2).

In this ruthlessly practical and inspiringly visionary book, Ronald Boyd-MacMillan teaches us how to identify our inner voices - whether negative or positive - and gives us five tools to engage with them, leading us into lives of deeper freedom, fullness and joy.

Monasticism: A Very Short Introduction by Stephen J. Davis (OUP. £7.99 (£7.20); 978-0-19-871764-5).

In this Very Short Introduction Stephen J. Davis discusses the history of monasticism, from our earliest evidence for it, and the different types which have developed from antiquity to the present day.

Four Views on the Church’s Mission, edited by Jason Sexton and Stanley Gundry (Zondervan, £10.99 (£9.90); 978-0-310-52273-7).

This book articulates various evangelical views regarding the church's mission and provides a healthy, vigorous, and gracious debate on this controversial topic.

Reading Theology in the Protestant Tradition, edited by Kelly M. Kapic and Hans Madueme (Bloomsbury, £28.99 (£26.10); 978-0-567-26614-9).

“Reading Christian Theology in the Protestant Tradition offers a distinctive approach to the value of classic works through the lens of Protestantism. While it is anachronistic to speak of Christian theology prior to the Reformation as “Protestant”, it is wholly appropriate to recognize how certain common Protestant concerns can be discerned in the earliest traditions of Christianity.

The Heavenly Habit by Daniel O’Leary (Columba, £10.99 (£9.90); 978-1-78218-332-7).

 “Amazing Grace! Nothing is beautiful or imaginative enough to do justice to the heavenly habit of a transforming grace the grace that finds light in the darkest soul. In this little book 10 artists offer their best efforts to capture the experience of that blessing in their own lives. All royalties from the sale of this book will go to Trócaire (Ireland) and CAFOD (UK)
