Follow Miriam's journey from childhood to motherhood, obscurity to notoriety, and yearning to fulfilment as she learns that what God promises he provides--in his own perfect timing. £10.99

'Stephen Cottrell writes about Christ as if he were here now. As if redemption were possible for all of us, as if the void that threatens to engulf us all could be filled by a personal relationship with Christ in the present. He is a compelling writer.' - Russell Brand Inspired by a conversation with a barista who asked him why he became a priest, this is the Archbishop of York Stephen Cottrell's extended answer to that question - as well as the letter he'd like to write to a divided country that no longer sees the relevance or value of the Christian narrative. £12.99
Emily Owen is back!
What must it have been like to be Ruth, transformed from a widow in a foreign land to become the great-grandmother of King David? Emily Owen explores these questions through Ruth's 'diary', sharing in her trials, her excitements, her challenges, fears and joys. Each chapter begins with a 'diary extract' from Ruth's life, which is then beautifully unpacked with a meditation to encourage you to reflect on how that applies today. Each meditation is encouraging yet challenging, and helpful for personal growth. £6.99

At a time when the status of women is still being debated and challenged, how can women play a leading role in society, the workplace and the church? Michele Guinness has been there and done that - not without opposition and not without compromise. In this all-embracing, honest reflection on womanhood Michele uses her own upbringing in the Jewish community to re-examine the views and counterviews on the role of women throughout the Christian tradition and culture, drawing inspiration from scripture, history and personal experience. The Contemporary Woman celebrates a host of women through the ages - from the great biblical matriarchs to the modern-day trailblazers - who have inherited a passionate determination to pursue God's radical call. Michele will encourage women everywhere, of every age, to follow their hearts, and inspire a new generation to discover what it means to be a woman. £14.99
