Double book launch in Oxford


A DOUBLE book launch takes place at the Blackwells book store in Oxford in November. journey FC3Labyrinth Prayer Handbook

The Journey, by Bishop John and published by SPCK and A Labyrinth Prayer Handbook by Sally Welch, will both be launched at Blackwells Bookshop on Friday 7 November.

The Journey follows Luke’s chronology from Luke 9.51, as Jesus ‘set his face to go to Jerusalem’. It offers daily weekday readings for Lent taking the reader to Jerusalem in the company of Jesus. Life in his company is not for the faint-hearted. Certainly there’s fun, as you lark about with the other young disciples. But it’s pretty edgy too, not knowing who is going to turn up next. And as the days pass by, the huge demands on Jesus as he heals and teaches invoke both a strange tenderness, and a growing dread of why exactly you are journeying to the holy city.

A Labyrinth Prayer Handbook follows on from Sally’s introductory Walking the Labyrinth. It provides ideas for using labyrinths in different settings, with children, those with learning difficulties, the elderly, in hospices, during retreats and during different seasons.

The Very Revd Martyn Percy, Dean of Christ Church, will be speaking at the book launch, at Blackwells on Broad Street, from 7pm. For tickets, which cost £3 call Blackwells on 01865 333623.
