Worth Noting

Trend-setters of the web: Rachel Harden, in the Church Times, calls Anglicans Online 'venerable' in her article on our tenth anniversary. (We'll take it. Doesn't it make us rather like an archdeacon amongst websites?)

Poets and God: Chaucer, Shakespeare, Herbert, Milton, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Blake, by David L. Edwards, is reviewed in the Church times by David Scott. 'Edwards treats his subjects biographically, and with literary criticism of a fairly accessible variety. He weaves the life quite closely into the texts. For the... keen amateurs, the book is wonderfully revealing, and soberly helpful.'

Run O'The Mill Bishop, by John Bickersteth, is reviewed this week in the Church Times by Bernard Palmer. In his autobiography, 'the Bishop’s style is discursive, and full of often entertaining detail. He describes at length his school and college days, and his war service; and he is more than a third of the way through the book before he embarks on an account of his ministry in the Church.'

Running Into God: Reflections for Ordinary Days, by Dave Tomlinson, and Jesus and People Like Us: The Transforming Power of Grace, by Nick Baines, are jointly reviewed in the Church Times by Mike Starkey. 'These two books of meditations have a shared theme: encountering God in the messy, mundane details of life. Dave Tomlinson is best-known as author of The Post-Evangelical, a semi-autobiographical and passionate polemic that was a rallying-point for many disillusioned with the faith of their childhood. Running Into God is an altogether gentler affair: a series of homilies from St Luke’s, Holloway, in north London, where Tomlinson is now parish priest.'

Universal Father: A Life of Pope John Paul II, by Garry O’Connor, is reviewed in the the Tablet by Michael Walsh. As Tablet's 'lead book review', it may only be available for free reading for one week. '[O'Conner's] stock-in-trade has been studies of playwrights (Shakespeare, though Samuel Beckett has clearly been a passion) and more particularly actors (Scofield, Guinness, Ralph Richardson, Peggy Ashcroft, Olivier). This provides him with an unusual, and because unusual especially welcome, entrée into the life of Karol Wojtyla, the actor and playwright who abandoned, and not without regrets, a life in the theatre for one in the sanctuary... As a guide to the early life of Karol Wojtyla, this volume is hard to fault. This is, alas, not true of the remainder.'

Worth Noting
Bonds of Imperfection: Christian Politics, Past and Present, by Oliver and Joan O'Donovan, reviewed in the Church Times. 'The book's central theme is that modern political philosophy from Locke and the Enlightenment onwards is root-and-branch mistaken in seeing the fundamental issue as securing the pursuit of freedom or rights rather than a primary recognition that all political structures must stand under divine judgement.'

The Fat is in the Fire: The Network and the Windsor Action Covenant, by Mark Harris.

Humane Christianity, a new book by Alan Bartlett, is reviewed this week in the Church Times by Ian Bradley. 'The most interesting part of this book, for me, is Bartlett's unease about the rule of St Benedict, which he finds to be over-committed to perfectionism, and crushing to the human spirit.'

The Sacred Neuron: Extraordinary New Discoveries Linking Science and Religion, by John W. Bowker, is reviewed in The Tablet this week by Fraser Watts. 'The core question with which he deals is how to defend rationality and avoid a complete collapse into relativism, in a culture in which simplistic appeals to incontrovertible objectivity are no longer tenable. His response to that problem is highly original in that it draws on recent research in cognitive neuroscience.'
