Religion and Law: An Introduction, by Peter W. Edge, reviewed in the Church Times by Mark Hill. Mark Hill considers what law and religion say to each other.
Urban Hope and Spiritual Health: The Adolescent Voice, by Leslie J. Francis and Mandy Robbin, reviewed by Nick Shepherd in the Church Times. Francis and Robbin 'examine adolescent faith and spirituality in the context of contemporary society ... [and though] there is nothing specifically urban about the research, it assesses the impact on young people's spiritual health of a variety of more general social factors, such as gender, the influence of schooling, religious affiliation, north-south geographical location, and others.
Worship in Context: Liturgical Theology, Children and the City, by Stephen Burns reviewed by John Pridmore in the Church Times. 'No less than five fields are brought within a single frame of reference - the Church of Eng-land's 2002 publication New Patterns for Worship, current trends in urban theology, children in the Church, contemporary North American liturgical theology, and an experimental eucharistic liturgy composed and used in Gateshead.'

School-in-a-box: We learned this week (from this National Public Radio story) about UNICEF's School-in-a-Box program. It provides an aluminum box that 'contains classroom supplies for up to 80 students, and 10,000 kits were distributed in Pakistan over the past year. The 110-pound boxes are often carried by donkeys or small boats. The culturally neutral materials include writing utensils, notebooks, rulers, counting blocks and posters.' We wonder how many parishes, dioceses, church organizations and companies might be willing to forego some pleasure in the coming months to donate the funds necessary for this remarkable effort.
The Pursuit of Happiness: A History from the Greeks to the Present, by Darrin McMahon, reviewed in the Church Times by Mark Vernon. 'Starting with Socrates and ending with science, it pursues the idea, both in the sense of tracking down the history of the concept (along with the lives and times of those who have shaped it), and in the sense of seeking its elusive goal.'
'The Tasks of Philosophy: Selected Essays, Volume 1 and Ethics and Politics, Volume 2, by Alasdair MacIntyre, reviewed in the Church Times by John Macquarrie. 'The first volume deals with basic questions in the philosophy of religion and theology. [In Volume 2] there are interesting chapters on Kant, Mill, Burke, and others, but the one that most impressed this reviewer was on Marxism — a chapter written as a kind of journal of the author's thinking between 1953 and 1995.'
Project Canterbury: A rich and outstanding site, the source of most AO Church History entries. If you're in interested out-of-print resources in church history, do visit this invaluable site. We are continually astounded at the breadth and depth of this resource; recent additions are listed here.
