4.0 out of 5 stars No Netflix, 7 Feb. 2015
I say again, no Netflix. It's good for the price, but navigating through iPlayer and Youtube is awkward.


A Tapestry of Carols
A Tapestry of Carols
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A delight, 3 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Let me add my words of praise to all the others below. This cd is pure pure delight. A mixture of the well-known and not so well known, but each song is a jewel. The traditional style accompaniments are fine but it is the singing that will move you, simple, unaffected, respectful - perfect.
Buy this for everyone next Christmas.


In Search of Japan's Hidden Christians: A Story of Suppression, Secrecy and Survival
In Search of Japan's Hidden Christians: A Story of Suppression, Secrecy and Survival
by John Dougill
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £19.99

3.0 out of 5 stars The Japanese see things differently, 2 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Part history, part travelogue, part theological reflexion ... it was interesting to read how the 'Hidden Christians' managed to hold on to some version of their faith for centuries, despite some ferocious persecution. I was less impressed by the author's thesis that Christianity is enriched by adding a few strands of paganism. But I believe that the opposite is true, that authentic nature worship is completed, fulfilled, transformed, by Christian belief.

Fantastic value, cheap, functional, and looks as though it might be real leather. Nice catch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 6 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great film of the 50s. Unforgettable scenes where the nuns care for the Jewish children. Slightly spoilt by exaggerated treatment of the wicked Germans, but can't be less than five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Figaro, but well worth a try., 6 Oct. 2014

Very good. None of the jazziness of the big three, but take it on its own terms and there is a great deal to enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Conversion, 6 Oct. 2014

Newman tells us in fictional form the story of his conversion, and shows why Anglicans should become Catholics. The case is unanswerable.

No good. Won't fit together. Won't go in the ground.

This review is from: Doctor Zhivago [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
Way better than the famous David Lean version. Far truer to the Pasternak.

Wonderful. If you think you might like this, you will love it. In all the gloom of modern church life, here is a bright light of hope.
