In an age when church attendances are falling across the world, a church in the small West Midlands town of Stourbridge continues to defy those national and international trends, as it has done since its founding in 1926. Why should it be that the Spiritualist religion is thriving in a quiet suburb when many city cathedrals are unable to boost their congregations? Eric Hatton, the author of this book, would no doubt say that it is because Spiritualism proclaims a message of crucial importance to everyone - that we cannot die, and that those in the next world who love us find joy, and in turn bring joy to us, by communicating from beyond the so-called grave. While no doubt agreeing with Eric's view, those who know him well would surely add that Stourbridge National Spiritualist Church has become the beacon it is today as a result of his inspirational involvement and leadership over almost seventy years. Here, he tells the full story of Spiritualism's most successful church with the characteristic openness and gentle humour for which he is known and loved throughout the movement.
Inclusive Language in the Church is a good introduction to questions about language use today that fairly addresses the issues of the language debate. Nancy Hardesty sets out to convince us that inclusive language is appropriate in Christian theology and worship.
