Two birds one stone... #lentchallenge (Learn) and also the books across my desk at Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market that I'm reading and reviewing! First off the beautiful and intense, 'Breathing Deep: Life in the Spirit of Easter' by Ian Adams from Canterbury Press is my personal Lent book of choice and I'd certainly highly recommend this and his other works. 'A History of the Church in 100 Objects' by Mike & Grace Aquilina is lso a wonderful and enjoyable book that takes you on a most unusual journey of the church's history... Each chapter is short and intriguing, as are the objects!, with a helpful more section of titles that will cover that time in history. Great book from Ave Maria Press & Alban Books. My final two reads this week are from @brfonline, one being 'Vibration Christianity in Multifaith Britain' by Andrew Smith which is a very helpful short, insightful, book on engaging with other faiths and considering how we live out our own faith and the witness that can be when we engage considerately, openly, and thoughtfully in the places we live and with the people there. Finally we come to 'A guide to Mission Accompaniment' by Kerry M. Thorpe and in some ways this goes really well with the previous book, because this is a book about walking with others, about accompanying those we are engaged with in faith. So part mentorship, part mission, part spiritual direction maybe... But above all about real fellowship and relationships... About the idea of journeying and growing together through building each other up. A really good book for ministers, pioneers, and even just ordinary congregation members because this is one thing we all can and should do. So there we go, 2 birds, 1 stone, 3 publishers, and 4 great books ;) All these books are available from your local Independent Christian Bookshop, like us here at Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market, and please do make your purchases from a real independent high street bookshop whenever you can because it's only through those purchases that Bookshops can stay in our town and cities :) #book #books #bookshop #indiebookshop #christianbookshop #reviews
