We have three new ‘books of the month’ from Friends House Bookshop. With both our March appeal for the charity Mind and a workshop this month on caring for those amongst us who are experiencing emotional distress, Nathan File’s This Book will Change Your Mind about Mental Health is timely. Then in Minimal: how to simplify your life and live sustainably, Madeleine Olivia offers very practical advice on the benefits of simpler, more sustainable living. Lastly, The New Testament for Everyone, out in paperback for the first time, is an eminently readable yet scholarly translation by Tom Wright, well worth using for its accessible language and format, as well as for its interpretative notes and features.
In addition, Becky has donated two fascinating books, both with challenging titles: Radical Gardening –politics, idealism and rebellion in the garden, an exploration by George McKay of how land, history and politics are interwoven; and Be The Change –Action and reflection from people transforming our world, which consists of a series of interviews by Trenna Cormack with caring and visionary people working in many different spheres for positive change.
