Interfaith Worship and Prayer: We must pray together, edited by Christopher Lewis and Dan Cohn-Sherbok (Jessica Kingsley Publishers, £19.99 (£18); 978-1-78592-120-9)

“Interfaith worship and prayer can be complex, but this book demonstrates that in a world of many cultures and religions, there is an urgent need for religions to come together with trust and communication, especially when there is a crisis.”

 

The Five Quintets by Micheal O’Siadhail (Canterbury Press, £19.99 (£18); 978-1-78622-195-7)

“Just as Dante, in his Divine Comedy, summed up the Middle Ages on the cusp of modernity, The Five Quintets takes stock of a late modern world on the cusp of the first-ever global century.”

 

In Conversation: Rowan Williams and Greg Garrett (Church Publishing Incorporated, £11.95 (£10.75); 978-1-64065-129-6)

“Be a fly on the wall and listen in a former Archbishop of Canterbury and Barbara Brown Taylor discuss their longtime passions and shared interests.” 

 

Faith and Courage: Praying with Mandela by Thabo Makgoba (SPCK, £16.99 (£15.30); 978-0-281-08058-8)

“The Archbishop reveals his pastoral approach to Nelson Mandela, and writes eloquently about the influence Mandela had on his ministry to Church and nation.”

 

The Pope’s Army: The Papacy in diplomacy and war by John Carr (Pen & Sword, £25 (£22.50); 978-1-52671-489-3)

“Climaxing the story are the little-known yet bitter late-nineteenth century battles between the papal volunteers from all over Europe and America, and the Italian nationalists who ultimately prevailed, John Carr narrates the story of Papal military clout with engaging verve.”
