It doesn't get better than Jeeves and Wooster, and this is the best I've read so far. Just a sheer delight of beautiful, hilarious writing.

3.0 out of 5 stars very good, but not great, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Simply Christian (Kindle Edition)
Very good as you'd expect from Tom Wright. Though I Found it lacked a bit of spiritual spark in places: interesting, informative but not wholly inspiring which a primer for interested seekers really needs to be to convey some of the glories and heights of knowing Jesus.


Companions for Your Spiritual Journey: Discovering the Disciplines of the Saints
Companions for Your Spiritual Journey: Discovering the Disciplines of the Saints
by Mark Harris
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful introduction to Christian spiritualities, 9 July 2010
This is a gem of a book. Mark Harris has mixed a rich and moving personal journey of discovery into a number of classic Christian spiritualities with a accessible and informative introduction to some spiritual giants of the recent and distant past.

The book is divided into the inner and external aspects of the devotional life, and has some questions closing each chapter for those who would benefit from further reflection or group discussion.

A great find - especially good because Mark Harris is a gifted writer clearly on a spiritual journey of his own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding the Bible - John Stott, 6 Jan 2007
This is a jewel of a book. Written in John Stott's beautifully lucid and clear style, it provides the reader with a simple, yet rich, overview of the Bible. Understanding the Bible explores the Scripture's historical and geographical context, its meaning and purpose, and its authority and inspiration from a thoughtful conservative position. While probably designed for newer Christians, reading it will repay all Christians and any interested readers with fresh insight and a marvelous breadth of scope. The book's greatest strength is Reverand Stott's rare ability to distil the Bible's central story with clarity without losing the sense of Scripture's richness or complexity. Highly recommended.
