The New Big Book of Christian Mysticism: An essential guide to contemplative spirituality by Carl McColman (Broadleaf Books, £16.99 (£15.29); 978-1-5064-8684-0).

“Is mysticism necessary for the survival of Christianity? What exactly is Christian mysticism? How can it be relevant in our crisis-ridden world? Questions like these inspire The New Big Book of Christian Mysticism, a newly updated edition from beloved spiritual teacher and bestselling author Carl McColman. The New Big Book of Christian Mysticism serves as both introduction and practical instruction for a living contemplative practice today.”

Letting Photos Speak: Visio Divina and other approaches to contemplative photography by Stephen J. Radley, Philip J. Richter and Andy J. Lindley (DLT £16.99 (£15.29); 978-1-915412-12-6).

Letting Photos Speak is for anyone who takes photos, on standard cameras or smartphones, and who wants to explore personal meaning and well-being through their pictures. The book, designed for readers of all faiths and none, begins by exploring some of the common ground between Christian contemplation and mindfulness and the effects that photography can have on wellbeing.”

Theology for the End of the World by Marika Rose (SCM Press, £19.99 (Church Times SPECIAL OFFER PRICE £15.99); 978-0-334-06066-6).

Theology for the End of the World suggests that in responding to the deeply entwined systems of capitalism, racism and patriarchy we should stop trying to unearth a 'good version' of Christianity which stands opposed to these forms of violence and seek instead to reckon with the role that Christianity has played in making the world we now inhabit.”

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