1 Say It To God
Luigi Gioia
An encouragement for all those who want to freshen their practice of prayer. For Gioia, prayer is not about methods or techniques, but trusting that God is truly interested in what happens to us and wants to hear about it. Explore the theological aspects of prayer and how it relates to Christ, to the Holy Spirit and to the Church. Without using complex theological concepts but simply through scriptural quotations. With a foreword by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Say it to God demonstrates that the everyday, even the most mundane of tasks and situations, can be applied in deepening our practice of prayer.

4 Dethroning Mammon
Justin Welby
An insightful exploration of money and materialism. Welby reflects on the power of money and the attitudes that surround it. Who will be on the throne of our lives? Who will direct our actions? Is it Jesus, who brings truth, hope and freedom? Or is Mammon (money) leading us into paths that tangle and deceive? Explore the tensions that arise in a society dominated by finance, and the pressures of our culture to conform. Following the Gospels, this book asks what it means to dethrone Mammon and learn to trust in the abundance and grace of God.
