by Sue Latimer, with poems by Clive Sansom

Foreword by Martin Cavender

Sue Latimer is a Reader in the Axbridge benefice, and a chaplain to Wells Cathedral. These stories, each based on a biblical text, were originally written to be read aloud. Interspersed with powerful poems by Clive Sansom, and illustrated with images created by a Christian community in Cameroon, each story offers a radical and personal perspective on a familiar Bible text.

Sue’s own story is about “a life which includes twenty years of drug addiction and twenty nine years of recovery: a life in which Jesus was a constant presence. He accompanied me in all the twists and turns of my journey. I cannot imagine life without him.” Perhaps it is this raw experience which enables Sue to penetrate so alarmingly and creatively into the subtext of the biblical stories. Read it alone or as part of a small group – it is likely to open up your conversations!

Author Nick Page comments: ‘This collection of stories is a great resource which will lead us deeper into the Bible, and see some familiar tales in an entirely new light.' It is, says Martin Cavender in his Foreword, ‘a sort of gathering of captivations.’

Studies in Paul's Letter to the Ephesians
by Patrick Whitworth


Ephesians is one of the most compact and visionary pieces of writing in the New Testament. Paul outlines here God’s grand plan to bring into being a New Community in the world, and for the future of his creation. In 9 studies Patrick covers God’s plan itself, the role of the Trinity, the peace-making of Christ, the overcoming of barriers, Paul’s prayer for the church, the new lifestyle to which the community is called, as well as relationships in the household to do with marriage, family and employment. These studies are ideal for small groups or for a teaching series in the church.


Patrick Whitworth is Rector of All Saints Weston, Bath and a well known author and teacher.

with Study Guide

by Patrick Whitworth

What would it have been like to meet Jesus? How would you have responded had you been Nicodemus, or the woman at the well? What can we learn from the way Jesus talked to his Father? In this original new book Patrick draws us gently in to the conversations Jesus had with the people he met. Each one is introduced by a colour illustration – a wall painting at the monastery of Mount Athos in Greece, and portraits by artists ranging from Rembrandt and Vermeer to modern painters whose work you may not yet know. Read it alone, or talk it through with a group – each conversation is followed by some questions designed to help you reflect on what you have read. Patrick is Rector of All Saints Weston, Bath, and a well known author and teacher.

The forgotten gift, the neglected discipline.
Keith Powell

Keith writes: 'As a minister I have found fasting to be an essential part of the Christian's toolbox. For me it is a natural part of my Christian journey, part of the way we are called to walk in, to find rest for our souls. May this book encourage you on the ancient path of prayer and fasting, one that will bless you and bring you closer to your Father in Heaven.'
