For several years, Ekklesia has partnered with Metanoia Books (part of the work of the London Mennonite Centre) to provide a unique online mail order service for a range of titles concerned with justice and peace, Christian reflection and action in a troubled world, and Anabaptist studies.
A celestial atlas by Scottish amateur astronomer Alexander Jamieson, dating back to 1822, is a star item at this year's Christian Aid charity book sale in Edinburgh, Scotland. It is one of the largest sales of its kind in the world.
The Christian Aid book sale at St Andrew’s & St George’s Church in Edinburgh, Scotland, began its life on a very small scale in 1974 and has now become a national institution - the largest church development sale of its kind.
Book-lovers in Edinburgh have been contemplating everything from Aesop's Fables to Judge Dredd - and they have raised volumes for Christian Aid's anti-poverty struggle, as well as adding volumes to their shelves.
