Nothing Is Impossible with God by Kathryn Kuhlman (£11.50)Publisher: Prentice-Hall — 1974Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0136252931]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a crease to the foot of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight but now somewhat age-tanned and a touch musty.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Like Kathryn Kuhlman’s earlier accounts of her ministry this book is composed of the first-person accounts of men and women whose lives were changed during Miss Kuhlman’s Miracle Services. Patients with terminal cancer, children with leukaemia and birth defects; victims of arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and spinal disintegration — these are only a few of the countless thousands who have been touched by God’s healing power in the midst of a crowded auditorium. Miss Kuhlman calls out their locations and bids them “Stand and accept your healing”. And before the eyes of friends and relatives, individuals arise from wheel-chairs and stretchers, born anew in both mind and body. Incredible? And yet, this book presents the stories of twenty people who were considered hopeless by medical science and who later returned, cured, to amaze their own doctors — and live new, utterly joyful lives, transformed by their new-found faith.”Notes: Size: 8½" x 5½".

The Dilemma of Democracy by Lord Hailsham (£11.50)Publisher: Collins — 1978Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0002118602]Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good+ DJ. Bookplate to ffep.Description: From the cover: “What has gone wrong with Britain ? Why do such a splendid people put up so pathetic a performance? And what has got to be done to put things right? In this clear, pungent, witty, above all wise book, Hailsham cuts to the heart of these familiar questions and produces answers of a characteristic originality and fearlessness. Where others are obsessed with traditional forms or external symptoms Hailsham is content with nothing less than root causes and rigorous diagnosis. He is not interested in a ‘prescription that flatters the prejudice of the patient’. He means to find out why we are in the mess we are and how we are to get out of it. No major aspect of our national life is neglected, moral or economic, political or social but the author comes down firmly in favour of a political explanation and a political remedy.”Notes: Size: 8½" x 5¼". 328 pages.

Anam Cara: Spiritual Wisdom from the Celtic World by John O'Donohue (£10.50)Publisher: Bantam — 1999Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0553505920]Condition: Very Good+.Description: Later printing. From the cover: “When St Patrick came to Ireland in the fifth century AD, he encountered the Celtic people and a flourishing spiritual tradition that had already existed for thousands of years. He discovered that where the Christians worshipped one God, the Celts had many and found divinity all around them: in the rivers, hills, sea and sky. The ancient Celtic reverence for the spirit in all things survives today — a vibrant legacy of mystical wisdom that is unique in the Western world. Now, in this exquisite book, Irish poet and scholar John O’Donohue shares with us the secrets of this ancient world. Using authentic Irish prayers and blessings, he reveals the treasures that lie hidden within your own soul and the ‘secret divinity’ in your relationships. As he traces the cycles of life and nature, he draws from the holy waters of Ireland’s spiritual heritage to lead you to a place where your heart can be healed and nourished. It is a place where you will discover your own Anam Cara, your true ‘soul friend’.”Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼"). 281 pages.

All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten: Uncommon Thoughts on Common Things by Robert Fulghum (£9.50)Publisher: Grafton — 1989Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0246135514]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the spine ends and corners with commensurate ruffling to the dustwrapper. Gently faded at the spine. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “This is one of the rare few destined to become a modern classic. Bound to raise the spirits and warm the heart, this collection of uncommon thoughts on common things has taken on a life of its own. It began with Robert Fulghum’s attempt to write a simple statement of belief. In his capacity as a Unitarian minister, he shared his credo with his congregation. Then he read it out at a primary school celebration, and a Senator who heard it took it back to Washington, where it was read into the Congressional Record. It was printed in the Kansas City Times and quoted in Reader’s Digest, read over the radio and produced as a poster by a phone company. Enthusiasm kept on snowballing. When Robert Fulghum collected his favourite observations, written over the years, into All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, it shot straight to the top of the US bestseller lists. Robert Fulghum writes with wit and insight about small lives with big meanings. His writing has a clarity and power that touch virtually everyone who reads his work. This wonderful book will make its readers pause to reflect on their own lives, and will leave them wiser, gentler — and feeling good.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½".

Spiritual Direction for Every Christian by Gordon H. Jeff (£6.00)Publisher: SPCK — 1989Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0281043183]Condition: Very Good. Heavily faded at the spine.Description: From the cover: “For too long spiritual direction has been regarded as an elitist activity, designed for the benefit of the clergy and a few specially devout laity. This book presents a timely alternative to that view, arguing that spiritual direction is a benefit which every Christian can enjoy. But if that is so, where will we find all the competent spiritual guides to meet this need? Gordon Jeff’s answer is that in every congregation there are people — women and men, lay and ordained — who possess a latent gift for spiritual direction. To develop that gift, all they need is the encouragement, advice and training that practising directors can offer. This is just what Gordon Jeff is doing through the training courses he has set up in the London diocese of Southwark. As a result he is able to share in this book the approaches and methods which have already proved their worth to many who would not otherwise have experienced this vital form of Christian guidance. Here, then, is a wise, practical handbook for all who would like to know how the skills of spiritual direction may be applied in their own congregation. The book will also be helpful as a concise introduction to the nature and purpose of direction, and how it relates to other forms of pastoral care and counselling.”Notes: Size: C Format (8½" x 5¼"). 104 pages.
