This week’s selection: preventing environmental catastrophe, the journey of St Ignatius, and churchgoing in medieval England

Sacred Nature: How we can recover our bond with the natural world by Karen Armstrong (Bodley Head, £14.99 (Church Times SPECIAL OFFER PRICE £12.99); 978-1-847-92688-3).

“Karen Armstrong argues that if we want to avert environmental catastrophe, it is not enough to change our behaviour: we need to learn to think and feel differently about the natural world: to rekindle our spiritual bond with nature.”

Discover God Daily: Seven life-changing moments from the journey of St Ignatius by Brendan McManus and Jim Deeds (Messenger Publications, £12.95 (£11.65); 978-1-78812-538-3).

“The authors illustrate the ‘slow work of God’ (Teilhard de Chardin), an unfolding of God’s plan for our lives over time, as a much more helpful and humanising way to look at faith. Using details from the life of St Ignatius Loyola.”

Going to Church in Medieval England by Nicholas Orme (Yale, £12.99 (£11.69); 978-0-300-26643-6). New in paperback.

“An engaging, richly illustrated account of parish churches and churchgoers in England, from the Anglo-Saxons to the mid-sixteenth century Parish churches were at the heart of English religious and social life in the Middle Ages and the sixteenth century. In this comprehensive study, Nicholas Orme shows how they came into existence, who staffed them, and how their buildings were used.”

Selected by Frank Nugent, of the Church House Bookshop, which operates the Church Times Bookshop.
