Life In Occupied Palestine
BY HAMDE ABU RAHMA
This book consists of 35 photographs, each with a long explanatory note, that highlight the stories of the Palestinian life and struggle under the occupation of the West Bank. From the old Bedouin woman threatened with the destruction of her home, to the contrast of vast illegal settlements to the poor Palestinian villages they tower over, images of the wall, Israeli soldiers spraying foul smelling "skunk" water on peaceful demonstrators , burned olive trees, Checkpoints and confrontaions. Despite it all the photographer can still see hopes of peace with justice. Be warned the book has a weak binding.

A Christian History
BY DIARMAID MACCULLOCH
We live in a world dominated by noise. Religion is, for many, a haven from the clamor of everyday life, allowing us to pause for silent contemplation. But as Diarmaid MacCulloch shows, there are many forms of religious silence, from contemplation and prayer to repression and evasion. In his latest work, MacCulloch considers Jesus's strategic use of silence in his confrontation with Pontius Pilate and traces the impact of the first mystics in Syria on monastic tradition. He discusses the complicated fate of silence in Protestant and evangelical tradition and confronts the more sinister institutional forms of silence. A groundbreaking book by one of our greatest historians.

Being A Quaker
BY BEN PINK DANDELION
"If we as Quakers want our Quaker approach to faith to be vibrant, cohesive, coherent and socially useful, we need to be clear about what we are and what we are not." In the last 150 years the backdrop to our Quaker experience has changed. Have we as Quakers been prey to inroads of secularism and individualism? Have these inroads left Quakers in Britain a diffuse and diluted faith community? Ben Pink Dandelion asks rigorous and difficult questions about what it means to be Quaker today within this context. In this important and exciting book we are challenged to consider how we retain an authentic encounter with the Divine, how we become a transformed and transforming community.
