A Son to Me: An Exposition of 1 & 2 Samuel
by Peter J Leithart

Typically for Leithart's work this book is strongly evangelical and particularly helpful in seeing the structure of the text.

An breathtaking novel studying the nature of faith, suffering and beauty. I read this alongside artist Makoto Fujimura's study of this novel, Silence and Beauty.


Culture Care: Reconnecting with Beauty for our Common Life
Culture Care: Reconnecting with Beauty for our Common Life
Price: £9.83

4.0 out of 5 stars Truth, beauty and goodness., 14 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Makoto Fujimura is a world-class artist and thinker and this book gives an insight into his heart and mind. A series of connected essays to help creatives and entrepreneurs and churches to value beauty and art more highly as vital parts of care for this world. My only critiques of this book are that I wish it was longer, but as an introduction to provoke reflection and action it's a great primer, and in light of its length I wish it were ordinarily a little cheaper. But, it makes a vital contribution to a much needed conversation to freshly awaken wonder and care through culture and business.


Genesis: The Movie
Genesis: The Movie
by Robert Farrar Capon
Edition: Paperback
Price: £23.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch the story unfold, 9 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Genesis: The Movie (Paperback)
A very different commentary on Genesis. Capon avoids most of the usual confusion and debates that are had around Genesis by inviting the reader to watch it as a film, to see how the story is told. This is a thought provoking, imagination-stretching book that draws heavily on Augustine's work on Genesis. A worthy addition to anyone's library, I only wish he'd written further than just Genesis 1-3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky classic., 17 Oct. 2014

I've never read a book like this. Part cookbook, part theological perspective. Pages on how to chop an onion, eating cheese, making bread, railings against the cereal barons and why lunch need only be cheese and beer.

Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Vulnerable, honest and refreshing., 17 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Extravagant Grace (Paperback)
I loved this book. Barbara Duguid is brutally honest about her own weaknesses. Her vulnerability commends her insights about life. I love especially where she speaks of being told that God might give her grace to change, or grace to help with failing to change. I will read this again and again and recommend it to others.

Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.54

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and insightful., 17 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
John Dyer's book is short, accesible and brilliantly insightful. The subject is a good model of how to engage a subject rigorously without being overly technical. This book would help you build a good theological approach to many areas of culture and many subjects.

4.0 out of 5 stars Refreshingly different, 1 Nov. 2009
Leithart has some great observations on the Bible as literature. It'd be great to see more examples in the book of the difference his approach makes but this is a very thought provoking read. Leithart takes the Bible seriously as a piece of literature, not to be mined for propsitions but enjoyed for all it's literary features. The real highlights are the way he interacts with Shrek, No Country for Old Men and Atonement to show us how literature works, and applies the same to his approach to the Bible.
