The People of God: A Royal Priesthood

The People of God: A Royal Priesthood

£9.95
Author:
Genre: 1995
Alwyn Marriage presents a vision of the Church as the priesthood of all believers, and argues that unless we take seriously the doctrine that all Christians are called to be priests, there is little future for the Church. She demonstrates how this inclusive vision was the basis of the Old Testament concept of God's chosen people, was restored through Jesus' calling of the first disciples and the mission of the early Church, and has been a recurring theme through reform movements ever since.

New Christian Poetry

New Christian Poetry

Genre: 1990
This anthology was for a while Collins’ best selling book, and I still get requests for copies. Unfortunately I have none left, and the opportunity for a re-print was lost in the course of the series of publishing takeovers in the 1990s. Copies are now like gold-dust, so if you have one that you don’t want, please let me know, so that I can pass it on to someone who does. More info →

Life-Giving Spirit: Responding to the feminine in God

Life-Giving Spirit: Responding to the feminine in God

Genre: 1989
This is an exploration of the femininity implicit in much of the language and imagery that has traditionally been used to describe the Holy Spirit. Resisting any attempt to down-grade the Holy Spirit, who is as much God as the other two members of the Trinity, I argued in this book that only if we take seriously both the femininity of the Spirit AND the centrality of that Spirit in our understanding of God can we fully appreciate the wholeness and holiness of God in Trinity.
