In an age of tourism, the great challenge is to see ourselves at a deeper level: the dimension of pilgrimage. Being a pilgrim might involve a journey to distant places associated with God-revealing events, but it has more to do with simply living day by day in a God-attentive way. Jim Forest's book assists the reader to see one's life as an opportunity for pilgrimage, whether in places as familiar as your living room or walking the pilgrim path to Santiago de Compostela. Drawing on the wisdom of the saints and his own wide-ranging travels, Forest leads us to a range of "thin places," including Iona, Jerusalem, the secret annex of Anne Frank, the experience of illness, the practice of hospitality, and other places and occasions where we may find ourselves surprised by grace.

Places of Pilgrimage is a record of the travels of artist Ian Scott Massie, as he seeks out the spirit of place of over seventy locations around Britain. In words and paintings, he explores the personality of these sites explaining, for example, what he feels on the spot where Saint Cuthbert's coffin rooted itself to the earth, or the visions conjured up on crossing the sands to Holy Island. Some places, which have already been interpreted by people such as A. E. Houseman, Vaughn Williams and Stanley Spencer, are presented afresh. Some are very personal choices: the landscapes painted by Paul Nash (who grew up in the same area as the artist); the village where Laurie Lee wrote Cider with Rosie; the boathouse where Dylan Thomas composed Under Milk Wood, and the industrial landscape which inspired L. S. Lowry. Some are traditional pilgrimage sites, like Lindisfarne, Durham and Canterbury; some are places which have other holds over the visitor - the stones of Avebury, the battlefield of Culloden, the tree where Robin Hood assembled his merry men.

It includes nine chapters of seasonal materials, three chapters of sacraments and services, and seven chapters oriented by topic. It also includes prayers for special issues such as natural disaster, domestic violence, and surrogate parents.

For several years, the students and staff of Ridley Hall, the Anglican theological college in Cambridge, have compiled a book of readings for the 48 days from Ash Wednesday to Easter Day. A team of students in training for the ministry write the reflections around a particular theme, so each day brings a fresh voice and a new perspective, while contributions from the teaching staff at Ridley give added theological depth. This year's reflections are based the classic theme of discipleship - what are the costs, the challenges, the joys and the trials of following in Christ's footsteps all the way to the cross?

In this book of meditations Father Raniero Cantalamessa reflects on Christ's passion, death, and resurrection. First presented as a lenten retreat in Rome, together with the Good Friday homily in St. Peter's Basilica, the result is a rich and multifaceted exploration of this central mystery of the Christian faith.
Christ's journey to Easter is such an immensely rich source that homilists, liturgists and believers who wants to plumb its depths know the challenge is not about lack of content, but rather where to begin. Like an experienced guide who knows the territory and its many paths, Father Cantalamessa helps readers reach the spiritual center.
His varying points of departure become stirring reflections on Easter. They culminate in a powerful meditation on the Servant Song in the light of the Passion narratives 'and the message of the victorious Christ.
"Raniero Cantalamessa, OFM Cap, is past professor of the history of Christian origins at the Catholic University of Milan and a past member of the International Theological Commission. He is preacher to the papal household and author of numerous books."

Worship leader Neil Bennetts and theologian Simon Ponsonby share a concern that modern worship is growing self-indulgent: more about performance, less about an encounter with the divine.
They believe that this is a real and worrying trend in modern worship. To correct it, they explore the Bible's teaching on worship, addressing four key concerns: Worship as entertainment; worship which lacks wonder and awe; worship as irrelevant to mission; and worship which gratifies the worshipper rather than honoring the Almighty.
The authors each contribute six chapters, tackling worship and holiness; worship with passion; worship and the danger of idolatry. How, they ask, can we rediscover the mystery of an encounter with God, in corporate worship? How can leaders open themselves and their congregations to the heart of God, releasing his presence and power? How should we craft the unique dynamic of a people gathered to sing to God?
