Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Anam Cara, 12 Dec 2013

Invaluable - have lent it, and this reminds me I must reclaim it - or order another copy! The perennial problem of lending books but thank heaven for Amazon.
This is a gem of a book.

Very much hoping I'll get a chance to see it when they join us after Christmas. Loved what I saw of the series on tv so imagine this will be excellent.

Have heard the phrase 'Lectio Divina' over the years but never really known how to approach it. This is an excellent guide. I borrowed a copy and after a few pages thought I must buy my own and now use it regularly. Would recommend to anyone wanting to take their 'interior life' seriously. Am currently re-reading Thomas Merton in conjunction with this.

Still to dig deeper but good to have a one-volume reference to hand. Looks very promising and looking forward to reading this.

Woodbine Willie: An Unsung Hero of World War One
by Robert Holman
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars WW1 classic, 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have sent this to son-in-law in the army, about to go off on operations again. We'd been discussing the difficulties of trying to reconcile suffering with a so-called 'loving God' following his harrowing experiences in various theatres of war, particularly Afghanistan. He'd not heard of Studdert Kennedy, being a new generation, so I thought I'd look for something suitable from Woodbine Willie. This is a new edition and pulls together a variety of SK's work and thought. An excellent introduction for him to dig deeper if he wants to read more. Puts him in context too - as we approach the centenaries of WW1.
