Sacristy Press books dubbed "excellent" and "highly recommended" by Church of England Newspaper

Added about 7 years ago by Sacristy Press

Two Sacristy Press books have received excellent reviews in this week’s Church of England Newspaper:

The Church of England Newspaper, no. 6146 (7th October 2012) Beyond Busyness: Time Wisdom for Ministry (cover) Stir Up, O Lord: A Companion to the Collects, Epistles, and Gospels in the Book of Common Prayer (cover) Sacristy Press is a new publishing house based in Durham producing some interesting works.

Stephen Cherry, a residentiary canon of Durham and Director of Ministerial Development and Support in the Diocese, has written a short book helping clergy to cope with busyness, anxiety and stress, Beyond Busyness. Cherry has already written two very well received books on spirituality, Healing Agony and the Archbishop of Canterbury’s 2011 Lent Book, Barefoot Disciple. This new book is well written and packed with lots of practical wisdom. Highly recommended.

Also from Sacristy Press is Stir Up, O Lord, a collection of reflections on the collects and readings for Holy Communion in the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. The author, Kevin Carey, is Chairman of the RNIB, Britain’s leading charity for the blind. He is also a Reader and a published poet. This book, which carries a foreword by The Very Revd Michael Sadgrove, Dean of Durham, would be excellent as an aid either to sermon preparation or to personal devotion. Most new material of this type is now designed for the Common Lectionary so is good to have something for the Prayer Book.
