Kenneth E. Bailey


Authors are always bringing out new books so if you have come across any that have inspired and encouraged you please let us know and get in touch (see Opening Times). We are always keen to let you know what we've found too ...


Just recently we have added Kenneth E. Bailey's new title Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes - a kaleidoscopic study of Jesus in the four Gospels, lifting away obscuring layers of modern Western interpretation …


Culture Making - a book by Andy Crouch, also author of Playing God, who has long had a knack for observing the culture around us, offers all that and more in this new read!


Rosie Rushton … a Reader in our Diocese and author of more than 40 books for teenagers and young adults, presents us with Down to Earth a book for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany which challenges us with "out-of-the-box" worship.
