• Quiet Mind, A
    Eva McIntyre
    This is a good little book, especially for those not blessed with a reasonably good self-image. As Eva McIntyre says, "Often it's the negative images we recall, probably because of the way they shape us, and are critical in building up our coping and survival techniques." Rightly, she says that we can choose whether our general approach to life is miserable or happy and it is worth the trouble to do so.

    McIntyre's second point is what she terms "stilling the monkey mind" so that it does not rush from one point to another, needing to chatter all the time. She works through problems of emotion, fear and ill-health, then brings us to exercises of posture and breathing. Pain can be a problem, though I believe some people find it can also be a stimulus to our reaching out to God. Here she has some good suggestions leading to freeing up the spirit, and on the use of dreams.

    But whatever the problem, the key is to focus on whatever we are doing - activity or meditation - so that nothing else can absorb or distract us. Our emotions need to be dealt with, by understanding and control, if we are to be in good relationships with others. And we often learn from our own experience how best to deal with them.

    McIntyre deals too, consecutively, with what she calls "the demon fear", with the needs of our body and breathing, and with the essentials of good posture. The spirit is freed only when physical and emotional needs are met, or at least put on a satisfactory hold.

    She reminds us that the bible contains many examples of God's communicating with humans through these means, though now such messages are not highly regarded because we have, perhaps, too much scepticism of religious psychosis or of attention-seekers. The book continues with chapters on 'Dreams, Visions and Voices' and then 'Finding Thin Places' (places we find helpful) as she concludes with discovering our closeness to God's love for ourselves and others.

  • Suffering: if God exists, why doesn't he stop it?
    John Morris
    Rooted in modern science, philosophy and Christian theology, here is the best short answer to the problem of suffering I have ever met. It is forged in the furnace of family suffering and yet resolutely believes in God’s ultimate good purpose. It is a great achievement to have produced something so thoughtful and yet so succinct. ~ Canon Dr Michael Green, theologian, university speaker worldwide, prolific author

  • Suffering: if God exists, why doesn't he stop it?
    John Morris
    Having lost our 7-year-old son to cancer in 1967, after 3 years of suffering, we are especially interested in what is helpful to those facing sleepless nights. There are not many books that are. But this well done book is, so I can recommend it without reservation. ~ Rt Revd Charles L.Longest, DD, former Bishop Suffragan of Maryland

  • Suffering: if God exists, why doesn't he stop it?
    John Morris
    One wishes that all theologians would write as clearly and succinctly as John Morris - his analysis of the 'problem of evil' will enlighten believers and unbelievers alike. ~ Lord (Martin) Rees, OM, Kt, FRS, Astronomer Royal

  • Suffering: if God exists, why doesn't he stop it?
    John Morris
    What makes this book work for non-believers like me is Morris’s intelligent approach to the questions we have. He may not have converted me, but he entertains and stimulates. So let’s call it a score-draw!

  • Clouds of Heaven, Beings of Light
    Sharon Kay Casey
    Sharon Casey, in her book, Clouds of Heaven, Beings of Light, shares her journey of self-discovery that can accelerate the one we are all on. It’s an emotional roller coaster with feelings that can take the reader to tears of relief and joy. The information provided is practical and can be immediately applied in one’s own journey. It will help readers to more fully comprehend who they are in relationship to the world and what reality is, and the news is better than you may have thought. Miracles are natural, and this book will help you become miracle ready. I highly recommend it.

    Dear Sharon,
    I feel this book will be very helpful to many. I enjoyed reading it and rereading it. The tears referred to in the endorsement were based on my experience. Your shared experience will indeed help many get more in touch with their own joy, which of course is the joy of all as we are one. For those who are in the low point of life it will be very uplifting.

  • Clouds of Heaven, Beings of Light
    Sharon Kay Casey
    Sharon Casey’s book, ‘Clouds of Heaven, Beings of Light', takes us on a Spirit Journey. She shares her process of ‘living with ’satan’” to eventually living as an extension of God’s Love. As with so many spiritual paths, with willingness, and letting go completely, ’severe suffering’ can be altered. Sharon takes us on her Awakening Path. … With a history of “abuse” and working as a big rig, ‘feed hauler’, her story is fascinating. And through “her story,” she paints a process that allows the reader to access their Own Awakening Voice. As a Course in Miracle teacher/student, I appreciate when others Share ’the process’ of Awakening. As diverse as humans are… we still can Hear Truth in another’s ‘Healed” story…and learn from their journey while we access our own ‘Listening for God’s Voice’… This Voice, Sharon shares so Beauty Fully in ‘Clouds of Heaven, Beings of Light’

  • Prescientific Bible, The
    Dr Peter J. Colyer
    Dr Colyer tries here to reconcile his faith with his scientific knowledge. It is an interesting read that looks at the Bible through scientifically enlightened eyes. ~ Reflections, Summer 2015, Edition 70

  • Why Religions Work
    Eleanor Stoneham
    Not everyone - especially those from a specific faith background - will agree with this author's every micro-conclusion. But on a broader plane, this book is lucid, well-researched, deeply-felt, humane, forward-looking, compassionate and helpful, and couched in an engaging and approachable style. It may even - depending on where you are in your thinking - change your ideas in a radical way. I have no hesitation in recommending it to the thoughtful reader in search of signposts. ~ Aggie C,

  • Long Road to Heaven, The
    Tim Heaton
    The purpose of this concise book lies wholly in its sub-title A Lent course based on the fi lm ‘ e Way’. It highlights the topic of Lenten reflection in one’s personal pilgrimage towards the Promised Land and attempts this by mirroring the ever-popular pilgrims’ walk to the shrine of Saint James the apostle at Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain.  The book divides into four main parts which explain how to organise and structure a Lent course, a section of historical reflection on Saint James the Great and the legend at Compostela, a five-part study course examining the concept of salvation based on the film  The Way observing a group of pilgrims walking the way of Saint James.

    The author provides interesting biblical commentary relevant to each study week. The book will relate to everyone in their daily journey through life with its hardships suffered as we seek to grasp a vision of personal salvation. The work is commended as a study resource.
    ~ S. JOHN HAZEL,

  • Reluctant Patient: A Journey of Trust, The
    Ian G. Wallis
    I would recommend this book to all healthcare professionals to give them an insight into what is happening to patients beyond the scalpels and drugs.

    Anyone with pastoral responsibility would find it helpful to be reminded how positive outcomes can come from human frailty. Anyone who has been seriously ill would find in Mr Wallis a life and faith affirming companion on their journey. ~ Graham Cook, Reform Mag Dec/Jan 2014

  • Quiet Mind, A
    Eva McIntyre
    Eva has been very brave in writing what so many people, both in and out of church life, ponder to themselves but are too fearful to speak out. It really is a big comfort to those seeking, or bewildered, or downright depressed and 'turned off' by what they think Christianity and its churches are all about. It is a short concise book, but with a huge volume of sense and ideas, and is easy to understand and use. Its poems are evocative and proufoundly deep, yet simple. Thank goodness for a volume which will take the angst from you about praying, and give you the strength to love yourself as you are and as you can be, and then help you, or those you meet, to love others free of shackles.
    I do so hope priests and teachers will read this along with everyone who longs for a better, more loving, and peaceful world. Its fresh approach should be talked about, it is for sharing. It won't take you long and will be well worth the effort, and offer you new insights. It is a book much needed. ~ Helen Kennaway, Amazon

    Great little book very challenging and thought provoking will make you think a lot about how you can quite your mind so as to hear from God. ~ Paul Balkwill, Amazon

  • Quiet Mind, A
    Eva McIntyre
    The honest truth is I have never read anyone who has wrote with such sincerity and refreshing honesty as Eva, and I am so incredibly grateful for the bravery she took in revealing what drives her personally - she actually reveals how she thinks and feels and how she effectively applies it to her own life and difficulties.
    Her words of distilled wisdom have helped me tremendously at occasional times of significant weakness or disappointment. I will read this book numerous times. ~ Shania Jeanes, Amazon

  • Quiet Mind, A
    Eva McIntyre
    This is a small but useful book for people who might be said to suffer from “every-day mental health problems” – particularly those people of faith who tend to demand too much of themselves, then beat themselves up when they can’t live up to their own expectations. Its integrated approach is a reminder that our thoughts, emotions and “spirituality” all affect each other, and reside in a physical body which also needs care and attention.
    ~ Susanne McCarthy, Amazon

  • Quiet Mind, A
    Eva McIntyre
    This delightful little book performs two functions.

    Firstly for those who seek a tool box with which to find a Quiet Mind this book does what it says on the cover.

    Secondly, if the Church will listen, Eva is pointing the way to a simple, relevant and spiritual Christianity which could be a major contribution to its salvation.

    >To read it is to relax. To use it is to find a Quiet Mind. ~ Amazon customer, Amazon uk
