So for this week's reading of the books that came across my desk at Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market I'm going for an on topic selection of books by and about strong, articulate and intelligent women given its the 100 year anniversary of some women in the UK first getting the vote! The first three are from Alban Books but are Orbis Titles: 'On Being Unfinished ' by Anne E Partick - a collection of deeply interesting theological writings from this Catholic theologian on issues of feminism, media, imaginative literature, language, and vocation to name a few. All well considered and intriguing, well worth the read. 'Women leaders in the Student Christian Movement 1880-1920' by Thomas A Russel really highlights the catalyst and strength of women during these suffragette years and how women's channeled energy achieves amazing things. 'The Image of the Unseen God: by Thomas Hosinski has a forward from the amazing Ilia Delia and is a beautifully deep theological book that moves us through church history, biblical studies, and science to help build the reflection of the beautiful inclusivity, nature, and understanding of God that is envolving. Finally the last book is from New City Press and is by the amazing Chiara Lubich and is on 'Mary Flower of Humanity'. A beautiful book that looks at ecumenism, Faith, strength, sorrow and how all are called to become 'little Marys' in their Yes to God. All these wonderful books and more are available from your local Independent Bookshops like us here at Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market. Please support us, and them, by making your purchases from them as that's the only way they can survive. #book #books #bookshop #indiebookshop #christianbookshop #christianbooks #spirituality #faith #review #authors #publishers #buylocal #christian #theology
