This week’s selection: prayer in a secular society; Hawksmoor’s London churches; and women in the Bible

All Christians are Monks: The monastery, the parish and the renewal of the church by George Guiver (Sacristy Press, £14.99 (£13.49); 978-1-78959-346-4).

All Christians are Monks looks at difficulties of believing and praying in the highly secular context of today, with an urge to be real, rather than fudging things.”

Terror and Magnificence: The London churches of Nicholas Hawksmoor by David Meara (Amberley, £15.99 (£14.39); 978-1-3981-1628-3).

“Nicholas Hawksmoor is one of a number of distinguished architects who worked in the seventeenth century. . . This lavishly illustrated guide to his London churches, including the steeples he designed for Wren’s City Churches, also looks at Hawksmoor’s life and wider work and includes a guided tour around his churches from former Archdeacon of London David Meara.”

Out of the Shadows: Preaching the women of the Bible: Volume 2 by Kate Bruce and Liz Shercliff (SCM Press, £19.99 (Church Times SPECIAL OFFER PRICE £15.99); 978-0-334-06351-3).

“In this volume, Bruce and Shercliff continue to explore the stories of the women of the bible, offering exegesis and comment, enabling preachers, and readers with a more general interest, to encounter and appreciate more of the female characters in scripture.”

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