This week’s selection: God and women, central issues of Christian practice, and national treasures in our cathedrals

Women and the Gender of God by Amy Peeler (Eerdmans, £19.99 (£17.99); 978-0-8028-7909-7).

“Through a deep reading of the incarnation narratives of the New Testament and other relevant scriptural texts, Amy Peeler shows how the Bible depicts a God beyond gender and a saviour who, while embodied as a man, is the unification in one person of the image of God that resides in both male and female.”


Love Makes Things Happen: An invitation to Christian living by Jennifer Strawbridge, Jarred Mercer and Peter Groves (SCM Press, £14.99 (Church Times SPECIAL OFFER PRICE £11.99); 978-0-334-05993-6).

“Each chapter in this book deals with central issues of Christian practice, and presents an introduction to Christian doctrine without losing focus of the lived Christian life. The book sets forth central aspects of Christian living and practice that are the natural expression of those doctrines when they are understood properly as a lived phenomenon.

Cathedral Treasures of England and Wales by Janet Gough (Scala, £14.95 (£13.45); 978-1-78551-453-1).

“This new volume tells the stories behind 50 remarkable artefacts — one for each cathedral — that have been preserved by the cathedrals of the Church of England and the Church in Wales. These local and national treasures are a vital part of our heritage, testifying to the powerful and enduring links between cathedrals and the wider communities of which they are part.”

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