Pilgrim at Tinker Creek  Pilgrim at Tinker Creek   by Annie Dillard

This award-winning title is more of an experience than a book. With exuberant language, the author documents the 'continuous creation' at her door in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains with a rich mix of animal, vegetable and mineral - where human beings are mainly incidental. Like being on retreat, it requires us to slow down, step out into life and the present moment, and through that to feel immersed in nature in an unforgettable experience. A life-changing book that has become a modern classic.

A Song Among the Stones  A Song Among the Stones   by Kenneth Steven

This concise and vivid poetic work, by the internationally recognised Scottish poet, echoes the memories of a voyage shared by a small group of Celtic monks who may have sailed from Iona as far as Iceland. It is the poetry of island rocks and vast seas - the warmth of home yet the call beyond. The book includes fragments of an imaginary lost manuscript - clues to people of the journey. A remarkable story echoing our own hopes and the gift of times and people who seem sent to help us.

Gift or a Given? Gift or a Given?   by John Atkinson

In this excellent and accessible book, the author tackles the difficult subject of those who do not get better. Exploring our language, Atkinson suggests that a more helpful word could be that of 'wholeness' and also the context of healing being 'what do you really need?' He argues that the need for healing is an invitation to work with God in a broken world towards the final goal of perfection. He also believes that sometimes God may act in a way that we cannot understand. This challenging title will be an essential resource for ministers as well as those seeking a response to the mystery of healing.

If you sit very still  If you sit very still   by Marian Partington

In this beautiful and moving book, Marian Partington describes the journey which followed the disappearance of her younger sister Lucy in 1973 and the subsequent discovery in 1994 that Lucy had been one of the vitims of Fred and Rosemary West. The book title is based on a dream that Marian had about Lucy a few months after her disappearance which enabled her to find a sense of peace and the suggestion that there may be a place where we all share the same dreams. The honesty of this title is brave and startling and invites us to face the darkness in our own lives before we can begin to forgive and heal.
