The Eucharist in Four Dimensions: The meanings of communion in contemporary culture by Jessica Martin (Canterbury Press, £16.99 (Church Times SPECIAL OFFER PRICE £13.59); 978-1-78622-472-9).

“Jessica Martin considers the place of the Eucharist today using four approaches. . . This is an essential guide to the Eucharist for all ministering in a world of streamed services and remote worship.”

Pauline Theology as a Way of Life: A vision of human flourishing in Christ by Joshua W. Jipp (Baker, £32.99 (£29.69); 978-1-5409-6572-1).

“In this fresh approach to Pauline theology, respected scholar Joshua Jipp brings Paul’s pastoral concerns to the fore, specifically his concern for human flourishing in his congregations.”

The Syriac World: In search of a forgotten Christianity by Francoise Briquel Chatonnet and Muriel Debie (Yale, £25 (£22.50); 978-0-300-25353-5).

“This comprehensive work tells the underexplored story of the Syriac world over three thousand years, from its pre-Christian roots in the Aramaic tribes and the ancient Near East to its vibrant expressions in modern diaspora churches. Enhanced with images, songs, poems, and important primary texts, this book shows the importance of Syriac history, theology, and literature in the twenty-first century.”

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