God Among the Ruins
While summer is depicted as a wonderful time, filled with joy and laughter, that can in itself make it more difficult when we face difficult times. In this much-loved book, Mags Duggan draws from her own experiences and from Habakkuk, taking you on a reflective journey through the tangled landscape of bewildered faith, through places of wrestling and waiting, and on into the growth space of deepened trust and transformation. As you read, discover for yourself the value and practice of honest prayer, of surrender, of silence and listening, and of irrepressible hoping.
Augustine's Life of Prayer, Learning and Love
So many books tell the story of St Augustine of Hippo and his impact on western Christian theology. Where this book differs is its focus on how Augustine became a Christian – the problems he faced and the doubts he struggled with. Learn more than just the story of the man; learn about how you can follow his example and take steps in your own discipleship journey.
A Franciscan Way of Life
Looking for a biography but fed up of reading about the lives of celebrities? Be inspired by the first-ever biography of Brother Ramon, a Franciscan friar and contributor to New Daylight. Learn about his quest for holiness and his journey of discovery and transformation. On top of the profoundly impactful story, this book includes a selection of Brother Ramon’s writings. Be inspired through his story and words to live your life fully for Jesus Christ.
