'Morning glory, starlit sky, soaring music, scholar's truth, Flight of swallows, autumn leaves, memory's treasure, grace of youth. Open are the gifts of God, gifts of love to mind and sense; Hidden is love's agony, love's endeavour, love's expense.'One of the most influential and best-loved spiritual books of the twentieth century. Love's Endeavour, Love's Expense is a reflection on how individuals and communities respond to the love God has for Creation. It is widely regarded as a great work of practical theology and spirituality. The late Canon W. H. Vanstone also wrote The Stature of Waiting and Fare Well in Christ.

In The Stature of Waiting, W. H. Vanstone - award-winning writer and Canon Emeritus of Chester Cathedral - reflects on the majesty of Jesus as he 'waits' before those who accuse, taunt and crucify him. For us today, such times of passivity and passion are as important as times of action and taking charge.

Author: Philip Goodchild
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers
In Economic Theology, Goodchild offers a philosophical analysis of the contemporary economy in terms of the way it structures credit and faith. The Great Financial Crisis of 2007 and onwards has exposed the extent to which the economy functions as a network of credits and debts. Credit and debt may now be understood as the driving force of economic behaviour. In this analysis, economic theories of markets and money are also ways of ordering trust. Similarly, the institutions of money, finance and banking provide the framework enabling trust and cooperation. Goodchild explores how reliance on such theories and institutions produces disequilibrium dynamics, growing inequalities, increasing enclosure, resource depletion and breakdown. Nevertheless, the failures of the system only intensify efforts to extend the system itself. Building on and extending Goodchild’s Theology of Money, the author exposes the extent to which humanity has become enslaved within theories and institutions of its own making. As the second volume in his Credit and Faith trilogy, Goodchild explains how the economy itself is a way of shaping time and attention, care and evaluation, trust and cooperation, so directly assuming a theological role. This volume extends the theological critique of the dynamics of financial capitalism.

Author: Rachel Mann
Publisher: Canterbury Press
Love's Mysteries reflects powerfully on our fundamental limitations as creatures of flesh and bone, and what our experiences of grief, loss and fragility tell us about God and his astonishing choice to inhabit human flesh. Rachel Mann explores what happens when our bodies are under pressure, living under conditions of trauma, violence, pain or distress, suggesting that the precariousness of life might be where we most authentically encounter God. Her argument combines theological reflection with stories of communal and personal loss, from large-scale events such as terrorist attacks and the coronavirus pandemic to personal accounts of accompanying a dying person. Throughout, she explores how the universal experience of fragility and grief can help us understand our own lives and our relationships with God and with others.
It is the life, the love, that was there before Jesus walked the earth: the Father
loving the Son, the Son loving the Father, the Spirit the love that flows between
them. W. H. Vanstone expressed this in Love's Endeavour, Love's Expense: In
Author: Michael Perham
The faith of the Church, although unchanging, must be told afresh for each new generation. In this volume, Michael Perham, Bishop of Gloucester, does exactly that by exploring key Christian beliefs. His approach is readable and accessible yet with the depth of his pastoral experience and theological insight. This is a book that, whilst encouraging and affirming, offers no easy solutions but takes us on a shared faith journey that is firmly rooted in the real world.
To describe the expense of God in the work of creation and redemption as a
piece of music is not in any sense to diminish its cost. It may be familiar to us from
the hymn that concludes William Vanstone's book Love's Endeavour, Love's ...

Martin Warner sets out to explore the enterprise of being a Christian. As a guide for this exploration Warner boldly uses the prayers said by the celebrant of the Eucharist while putting on the priestly vestments. These prayers focus attention on aspects of life that are common to us all: hands, mind, fashion, commitment and celebration. What we discover here is an extended mediation on faith in Jesus Christ. It is an account that directs our attention unflinchingly to the reality of life without losing sight of heaven as our destiny.

A clear and inclusive account of the broad, rich, and developing core of Anglivan spirituality as it hasevolved through history. Highlighting its complexity, fallibility, occasional hesitancy, Bartlett suggests that Anglican spirituality and theology has the potential to be an effective post-modern expression of the Christian faith.

Author: Andrew Linzey
Animal rights is animal theology. The author argues that historical theology, creatively defined, must reject humanocentricity. He questions the assumption that if theology is to speak on this issue, 'it must only do so on the side of the oppressors.' His theological query investigates not only the abstractions of theory, but also the realities of hunting, animal experimentation, and genetic engineering. He is an important, pioneering, Christian voice speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves.
