Books on calling

  1. Francis Dewar, Called or collared – yes, this is a book on vocations, and vocations to ministry specifically. But every Christian would benefit from reading it – it is amazing.
  2. Michael Ramsay, The Christian Priest today – a classic, re-edited many a time. Focuses a fair bit on the role of the priest as intercessor/representative.

General Christian books

  1. C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters – imaginary letters  from a senior demon to his subordinate, who is in charge of tempting someone. Brilliant read!
  2. Rowan Williams,  Silence and Honey Cakes – just get it. I will organise a competition at some point with it as its prize; it is just THAT good. Wisdom from the desert fathers (ie 4th-6th Century Egyptian monks).
  3. Joyce Huggett, Listening to God – a great book on contemplative prayer (I have an old edition which does not have the subtitle… hopefully it’s the same!)
  4. Henri Nouwen, The Return of the  Prodigal Son – very moving. Am currently reading it, so should reserve judgment, but… it is really good.

Other cool books

  1. Orson Scott Card, Ender’s Game – which is about to be released as a film. A page-turner, really. A must-read if you like sci-fi.
  2. J.R.R. Tolkien, Roverandom – a non-Middle Earth Tolkien book, which is always welcome in the middle of Hobbit-mania!
