This week’s selection: Wisdom, experiences of apostasy, and a short guide to pastoral care

Wisdom Calls: Transformative ways for insightful living by Helen Warwick (Sacristy Press, £14.99 (£13.49); 978-1-78959-313-6).

“Helen Warwick explores the ancient, hidden way of Wisdom through psychological, theological and ecological groundings, bringing forth this intuitive, healing presence and her transformational movement connecting to community and all creation.”

Faiths Lost and Found: Understanding apostasy, edited by Martyn Percy and Charles Foster (DLT, £14.99 (£13.49); 978-1-915412-32-4).

“Ten people tell the story of their personal, often traumatic, experiences of apostasy. Each person left one iteration of Christianity, found themselves ostracised by the community they left, and found a new spiritual home.”

Pastoral Care in Practice: An introduction and guide by Michael Hopkins (Canterbury Press, £14.99 (Church Times SPECIAL OFFER PRICE £11.99); 978-1-78622-500-9).
