This week’s selection: a resource for creating a daily rhythm of prayer, Tom Wright on St Paul’s Letter to the Romans, and Sister Bridget prepares for Christmas

Celtic Rhythms of Life: Daily prayer from the Community of Aidan and Hilda by Graham Booth, David Cole, Simon Reed, Ray Simpson and Penny Warren (BRF £9.99 (£8.99); 978-1-80039-228-1 (hardback ) / £7.99 (£7.19); 978-1-80039-229-8 (paperback).

“Celtic Rhythms of Life contains ready-to-use forms of prayer for morning, midday, evening and night, seven days a week.” 

Into the Heart of Romans by Tom Wright (SPCK, £19.99 (£17.99); 978-0-281-08984-0).

“In this fresh look at Romans, Tom Wright takes a deep dive into Paul’s greatest letter and invites you to explore with him the priceless treasures that lie beneath the surface. With a special focus on Romans 8, Wright leads you on an eye-opening journey, clearly explaining the many ways in which Paul throws light on so much else that God reveals in Scripture: God the Father, Christology and the Spirit; Jesus’s Messiahship, cross, resurrection and ascension; salvation, redemption, and adoption; suffering and glory; holiness and hope.”

Sweet Mercies: Even saints need second chances… by Anne Booth (Harvill Secker, £16.99 (£15.29); 978-1-787-30299-0).

“The new heartwarming Christmas adventure with the Sisters of Saint Philomena, about friendship, family, and forgiveness”
