4.0 out of 5 stars A long lost friend, 9 May 2010
It was like welcoming back a long lost friend or should I say friends. It some ways it seemed like it was only a few weeks ago that I was watching this wonderful story; full of complex characters and intertwining plots. There is a saying "they don't make things like this any more!", and it is true, to assemble such a brilliant cast to complement the story, would practically be impossible now. It reminds us of the golden days of drama, and towers above any of the serials and drama that we now see on television.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Insight, 10 Mar 2010
A fascinating insight into the Old Testament world. Which brings archaelogical exploration to bear on many of the great stories in the Old Testament; yet it does not destroy their validity, but puts them into the context of the emerging Israel.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Diaconate for Dummies", 16 April 2009
Many of the questions that both laity and deacons themselves ponder. An essential simple aid for all who are interested in the diaconate. As we see the decline in numbers of priests in the United Kingdom, we will also see an increase in the number of Deacons as well as stronger role for the laity. This is a a snapshot of the workings of the Diaconate, for those who wish to know more about this historical office that is once more impacting on the religious life of more and more people.
