A great book for anyone looking to explore the biblical background of sabbath alongside the tension of what it means to live it out in the world today
‘An experiment in historical imagination’, part novel and part academic study, which both entertains and informs in the world of early Roman Christianity
Transports the Jonah story from the Bible to a science fiction mode. Well told if scarcely believable at times
Shows how it is possible to ‘reimagine’ (by seeing jobs as ‘parables’) the actual work as part of God’s intention for individuals and for the world
Explores how we might create more inclusive church communities; recommended reading for all Baptists
Short essays offering a brief introduction to 20 writers followed by analysis of faith themes that have gripped them
