Christianity and Depressionby Tasia Scrutton (SCM Press, £19.99 (Church Times SPECIAL OFFER PRICE £16); 978-0-334-0-5890-8)

“Offering a theological and biblical account of depression, Tasia Scrutton considers how depression has been understood and interpreted by Christians and how plausible and pastorally helpful these understandings are. It offers an important and well-informed resource for those with, or preparing for, positions of pastoral responsibility within the Christian Church.” 

 

On Priesthood: Servants, shepherds messengers, sentinels and stewardsby Stephen Cottrell (Hodder Faith, £12.99 (£10.99); 978-1-529-36098-1)

“Taken together, these five metaphors provide a rich and resonant set of ideas through which to explore the nature of Christian ministry. In this short, lyrical book, Bishop Stephen Cottrell explores each one; based on actual addresses given to ordinands on the night before their ordination, it is refreshing, challenging and accessible.”
