3.0 out of 5 stars Track listing is wrong on website, 18 Sept. 2013
First four tracks do not exist according to the image of the cd cover, and according to the mp3 listing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining - but go for the collectors' edition if you can afford it, 19 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We're thoroughly enjoying this game - worth playing many times. You don't need to be a Pratchett fan to enjoy the game, either. But if you can afford the collector's edition, it's worth paying a bit more for wooden coins, larger map, free poster - and cards and die without the number between 7 and 9!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gets better as it goes on, 10 July 2012
This review is from: One Night [DVD] (DVD)
First episode was a little hard to get into - no sympathetic characters at all - but by the third episode I was totally hooked, and the last one was deeply moving.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great pastoral resource, 16 Nov. 2009
A most helpful and practical little book for clergy and others.

Chapters:
* Personal prayers for those in pastoral ministry
* House and home (blessing a home etc)
* New life (prayers with parents-to-be, thanksgivings, after miscarriage, emergency baptism etc)
* Relationships (engagement, renewal of vows, blessing ring etc)
* Endings and new beginnings
* Preparing for the sacraments
* Healing and Wholeness (incl prayers for those who have been abused, or are suffering from AIDS or addictions)
* Death and bereavement
* Life situations (work, court, anxiety etc)
* Additional resources (blessing of water, daily office, confession/absolution, psalms and bible readings etc)

I often turn to this book for prayers to use in pastoral situations: clearly written/compiled by someone with pastoral experience, these are good, practical prayers to use 'in the field'.

Foreward by the then (anglican) Bishop of Salisbury: "This book ... will be an invaluable resource to all those engaged in pastoral work ... and I commend it warmly."

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says in the title!, 14 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A book which, as an anglican priest, I have lent to many people who have had damaging images of God inflicted on them. Compassionate, theologically sound and easy to read - first rate.


My Holy Communion Book: Children's Communion Book
My Holy Communion Book: Children's Communion Book
by Susan Sayers
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE! Two books with the same ISBN, 17 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book illustrated, "My Holy Communion Book" contains the current (Common Worship) communion service. But the old edition, "Jesus is Here: A Children's Communion Book" (which has the old ASB text) confusingly has the same ISBN. Make sure you get the edition you are after, especially if you are buying second-hand.

3.0 out of 5 stars not the book..., 19 July 2008
This review is from: Jean De Florette [DVD] (DVD)
Pretty good as a film - but a bit po-faced. Watching it, you'd never guess that the original book is actually very funny.

3.0 out of 5 stars This has a 20Gb capacity, not 30Gb, 13 Jan. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Be aware this has a *20Gb* hard drive not 30Gb - there is no 30Gb model.
Amazon have been notified, but seem incapable of updating the website
