Just some amazing books coming across my desk at Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market for me to read (and in turn you all to buy!). Seriously 'For Good - The Church and the Future of Welfare' is a short book of 90pp that packs well above its weight and truly is a must read for all interested or involved in knowing about and practicing transformative change in welfare issues... A real book of social change issues for churches (and wider!), an essential read from @canterburypress. Next up I can honestly say that 'Blue Planet Blue God' is the book as a Christian you need to be reading alongside Attenborough's Blue Planet! This book isnt just about climate change and water rights issues, but us about the wonder, majesty, and intrinsic beauty and power that is water in all its forms and how that deep peaks to the soul of us too. Beautiful and deep book from @scm_press. Next up, Christian Alternatives have published 'Why Progressives Need God' by Clatworthy, thisis a deeply rich and readable study (that reads a little like a philosophical manifesto in some parts) on monotheism for progressives. It's a deeply interesting read, especially as we dig down deeply into what 'Monotheism' really is and means... Especially in today's culture. Another good book for personal reading but that would make a great group discussion read if you ask me! Finally one I'm taking home next... 'New World, New Church' by Hannah Steel and from @scm_press... Looking at the theology of the emerging church movement and its proponents, should be interesting and thought provoking I'd think. Now remember all these books and other really good ones like them are available from your independent Bookshops like us here at Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market and we all rely on you to buy from us to kept us real, here, and vibrant in your towns and cities so please do support us :) http://ift.tt/1TEBPlr #book #books #bookshop #indiebookshop #christianbookshop #christianbooks #spirituality #faith #review #authors #publishers #buylocal #books #reading #study #theology #scmpress #canterburypress #christianalternatives #johnhunt #christian #church #lincoln

A few more brilliant new books that have come across the counter at Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market for me to read from. @thebiblereadingfellowship ...Michael Mitton's Seasoned by the Seasons is fabulous, divided into the seasons the studies in it are short but deep, Intense and flavourful they are talk to very real situations in our lives, death, despair, failure, love, birth... And highlights, lowlights and celebrations in between. Lovely for an individual, good too for a group. The same for Goldsworthy's Jesus Through The Old Testament - filled with good stuff - easy diagrams, helpful key notes, concise breakdowns and correlations. Keen, insightful, easy to read and understand. Invaluable. Last up Horsfall's Facing Midlife, undated and helpful bible studies for those of us challenged with growing older, and nice and cheap with it ;) http://ift.tt/1TEBPlr http://ift.tt/1K9J1V7 Remember your local independent bookshop (like us here at Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market) is the best place to see and buy books..

Can I just say that though these books from @avemariapress via Alban Books that came across the desk here @unicorntreebks in Lincoln Central Market are a little American in style they are absolutely fantastic and fun... A good blend of modern world and faith (Black Widow and Mary Magdalene! Craft Brewing and St Benedict!) with highlights, considerations, activities and thought provoking ideas throughout. Seriously a little unusual but really good either for youth workers, hipsters, strong women, or fun folk of any type. I've certainly had fun reading them :) http://ift.tt/1TEBPlr http://ift.tt/1K9J1V7 Remember these and other goods books are available from your small and local independent Bookshops (like us here at Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market) and making your purchases via them help keeps your community vibrant and shops alive :) #book #books #bookshop #indiebookshop #christianbookshop #christianbooks #spirituality #faith #hipster
