(Quotes from the book - with permission from Michele Guinness, below -  are in italics)

Archbishop By Michele Guinness: Book Club Discussion On What Constitutes Church?

WHAT CONSTITUTES CHURCH?  (Quotes from the book are in italics)

With some members of our Readers’ Group being Street Pastors and School Pastors, and all of us attending churches involved in outreach, the issue of whether church is a building or a people was one that resonated.  Faced with a barrage...

Archbishop: A Novel By Michele Guinness

Another superb choice of fiction – so my Readers’ Group and I enthused when we met yesterday evening to discuss it.  One or two of us confessed to having found the first chapter somewhat overwhelming: a plethora of names, unknown characters and big words.  But with that behind us, the...

A Better Story: God, Sex & Human Flourishing By Glynn Harrison: A Must Read For Everyone

Before I start, I want to say that I have nothing against anyone who is genetically predisposed to the LGBT spectrum.  I have personally known people in homosexual relationships, and always found them to be delightful.  I also have a family member who is transgender, whom I love and get...

The Internet - A Tower Of Babel?

Let me be clear: I love the internet.  The advantages are indescribable.  For me, as an author, it facilitates research, enlarges my readership, and enables me to make friends via social media.  As a mother, aunt and cousin, it affords photographic and written information to be shared at the touch...

Mel's Online Book Club: The Art Of Hearing Heartbeats By Jan-philipp Sendker

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER:

The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker was, we all agreed, the best book we’d ever read.  A beautifully and evocatively written love story, it was woven throughout with profundity and truisms: a tapestry of an unknown lifestyle, embroidered with recognisable threads.

MYSTERY

Set in Burma, the story is that...

Mel's Online Book Club: When We Can't, God Can By Catherine Campbell

When We Can’t, God Can by Catherine Campbell was the book under discussion when we met for Book Club last night.  Having met Catherine on several occasions at Christian Resources Together conferences at Swanwick, I was not surprised to see how well her lovely, caring personality came across in the...

Mel's Online Book Club: Remember Me? By Lesley Pearse

I suppose I could say it was an attitude of quid pro quo that prompted me to suggest Remember Me? by Lesley Pearse as my choice for Book Club this month.  After all, the honour of having a multi-million-selling author attend the book launch for my novel, Chosen? is as...

Holy Habits By Andrew Roberts

What a great book!  When I first suggested that we read it for Book Club, one of the members thought it looked somewhat ‘heavy-going’.   On the contrary, when we met to discuss it, we all felt it was an easy read and had much to say to us about following...

Fire Destroys The Royal Clarence Hotel In Exeter

Shock, horror, I've just heard on the BBC News that there's been a fire in Exeter's Cathedral Yard and that it's spread into the Royal Clarence Hotel.  Because my novels in the Evie Adams' series are set here, I have copies of the books in the hotel.  Here are some...
