Australian Anglican Directory 2021 – just $80.00 for a wealth of information. Listing of all Australian clergy and so much more. A very valuable resource for every parish.

CANDLES IN THE DARK: An amazing new book by Rowan Williams $22.95. Reflections written for his own parish church as the lockdown started in England in Lent last year. An epilogue bringing it up to date at the end of 2020 is inspirational. This will be the most relevant and heartwarming book to read this Lent.  (good stocks)

LIVING HIS STORY, The Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent book for 2021, by Hannah Steele $29.95 – following lengthy delays due to restrictions on global shipping, stocks have just arrived. An inspiring book, the enchantment of storytelling – Hannah is a great storyteller and this book is so readable. In his foreword the Archbishop of Canterbury says of the pandemic of 2020 “ we find it difficult to understand another reality until we are living in it. The Christian story requires us to take a step into an unbelievable account…it challenges the realities we thought we knew…”And Hannah says “when I embarked upon writing this book the UK was in the early stages of COVID-19 and I had little idea of what lay ahead in the weeks and months to come” and refers to the challenges of writing during the pandemic. Then follows seven chapters in which this remarkable lecturer, evangelist and story-teller helps readers to “discover simple and practical ways of telling the gospel story afresh”.

$12 Lent study specials

As previously advertised, we also have over 100 books reduced to $12 each, consisting mainly of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent books over the past few years, and a sprinkling of other Lent books. Stocks are sufficient to be useful for study groups.
