Twelve Steps to Spiritual Health
Twelve Steps to Spiritual Health
by David Usher
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most gifted theologians of our time, 18 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
David Usher is one of the most gifted theologians of our time who can make both atheists, agnostics, searchers and the deeply committed feel welcome and at home.

These simple points about developing spiritual health are really important. They are a neutral look at what works for you. This is a book for those with enquiring minds who know that there is something more and will help them flesh out their vision and get more from their lives.

Hymns for Living
Hymns for Living
by David Dawson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.50

5.0 out of 5 stars It makes me feel good to sing these wonderful songs., 18 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hymns for Living (Paperback)
The difference between this hymn book and most of the others I have seen and used in my life is that it is a mixture of modern and traditional but with words that are both sensible and inspiring. Unitarian and Free Christian theology having been rooted in no nonsense rejection of stuff that is patently made up, some people will think that this would mean that there is less emotion and less mythology but the opposite is the case. Reading these words makes one feel at home with common sense and emotion too. It makes me feel good to sing these wonderful songs.

Death of Christopher Marlowe (1925)
Death of Christopher Marlowe (1925)
by J. Leslie Hotson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.95

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic breakthrough to discover after 300 years who murdered the famous playwright Christoper (Kit) Marlowe., 18 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
J Leslie Hotson was one of the greatest 20th Century Shakespearean scholars and this is his first book, although there was an earlier paper on Chaucer in the Proceedings of Modern Language of America (PMLA) in 1925. A great sleuth Hotson, then a young man, discovered in a trawl through Elizabethan archives who murdered the epic Elizabethan playwright Christopher Marlowe. This was an incredible breakthrough and I thoroughly recommend you read this short description of the exciting tale.


Shakespeare's Kings: The Great Plays and the History of England in the Middle Ages, 1337-1485
Shakespeare's Kings: The Great Plays and the History of England in the Middle Ages, 1337-1485
by John Julius Norwich
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for all students studying Shakespeare., 18 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I cannot understand why so many really good books have got hardly any reviews on Amazon. This is an absolute must-read for all students studying Shakespeare. It's a rip roaring read, beautifully done and wonderfully put together. I wish John Julius Norwich had done similar treatments on all of Shakespeare's plays.
