Tokens Of Trust
Full Product Description
He explores the great statements of belief as they are found in the Creed and weighs them up in relation to the challenges and complexities of life in the world today:
God as maker of heaven and earth – can he be trusted?
God as ‘almighty’ –what sense can we make of this in the face of natural disasters like the tsunami?
Jesus as God’s son – few people believed this during Jesus’ lifetime; what changed everything?
‘He was crucified under Pontius Pilate’ – how do we understand good and evil today?
and more about how to read the Bible, what the Church should be like, death and resurrection.
Wonderful, thought-provoking phrases leap off each page and there is a characteristic depth of thoughtfulness that will reveal new dimensions each time this book is read.
Includes thought-provoking illustrations by poet and artist, David Jones

Tokens of TrustHelen Hancox, via The Good Book Stall
This book is based on Rowan Williams' talks in Canterbury Cathedral during Holy Week 2005 and is an introduction to Christianity focusing on six major themes - trusting in God, creation, Jesus, suffering, the church and life after death. These themes are considered with reference to the Apostles' Creed and the Nicene Creed alongside reflections on historical characters such as St Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther and modern people and events. The book doesn't presuppose significant knowledge about Christianity but the writing style is rather wordy and feels a little more academic than usual in books aimed for this market. It isn't the usual checklist of basic Christian beliefs but is instead a well-written and interesting approach in discussing the trustworthy and unchanging love of God and how we begin to live in the light of this knowledge.
