              CHRISTIANS, JUSTICE AND TIBET
              - AUTHOR: John Scawen
              - RRP: £5.95
              From the author:

              Having travelled in China on several occasions to help train the burgeoning mission
              movement, I am left with questions about what really goes on under the surface in that
              great land, especially concerning ethnic minorities. Through the eyes of Rinchen, a
              youngTibetan man, this book takes the reader beneath the surface to identify the less
              understood issues and to suggest the direction in which hard answers are to be sought.



              Christians, Justice and Tibet brings into sharp focus the connection between our choice
              of lifestyle and injustice half a world away. A challenging, uncomfortable, must-read
              manifesto for "positive deviancy".'
              Eden.co.uk, Europe's Largest Online Christian Retailer

              This is a fascinating and provocative analysis of Christian witness and lifestyle in the light
              of the author's deeply-felt engagement with the people and places of Tibet. John Scawen
              creatively combines biblical reflection, cultural and political history with personal narrative
              to provide a highly original Tibetan-eye perspective on patterns of behaviour and thinking
              that many Western Christians take for granted but that need to be robustly challenged.'
              Simon Steer, Principal of London School of Theology

              This book is exceptional in how it draws together the two important themes of loving our
              neighbour and seeking justice. For too long these have been considered in isolation.
              Drawing on personal observations and experience of cross-cultural development work,
              the author of this unique book makes some very useful, practical suggestions on how we
              can move forward. A short book that definitely is worth reading!'
              Development Practioner (International NGO) based in Central Asia

              If all that you know about the Tibet versus China issue comes from short sound bites on
              the evening news, then you should read this book. John Scawen offers insights and
              opinions from his eight years of development work on the edge of the Tibetan Plateau.
              He has worked alongside Tibetans, eaten in their homes, slept in tents on the grasslands,
              heard first hand of the painful effects of modernization on cultural Tibetan areas. In this
              book he asks provocative questions, stirs a sometimes unsettling debate, and ultimately
              asks of us, "How can I be a good neighbour to my Tibetan brothers and sisters?"'
              Pastor Mike, California

A HISTORY OF CHRISTIANITY
- AUTHOR: Diarmaid MacCulloch
- RRP: £35.00
Christianity, one of the world's great religions, has had an incalculable impact on human
history. A History of Christianity, now the most comprehensive and up to date single
volume work in English, describes not only the main ideas and personalities of Christian
history, its organisation and spirituality, but how it has changed politics, sex, and human
society. Diarmaid MacCulloch ranges from Palestine in the first century to India in the
third, from Damascus to China in the seventh century and from San Francisco to Korea
in the twentieth. He is one of the most widely travelled of Christian historians and
conveys a sense of place as arrestingly as he does the power of ideas. He presents the
development of Christian history differently from any of his predecessors.

Diarmud MacCulloch shows how, after a semblance of unity in its earliest centuries, the
Christian church divided during the next 1400 years into three increasingly distanced
parts, of which the western Church was by no means always the most important: he
observes that at the end of the first eight centuries of Christian history, Baghdad might
have seemed a more likely capital for worldwide Christianity than Rome. A History of
Christianity is the first truly global history of Christianity.

Diarmud MacCulloch is Professor of the History of the Church at Oxford University. His
Thomas Cranmer biography won the Whitbread Biography Prize, the James Tait Black
Memorial Prize and the Duff Cooper Prize. He is also the author of Reformation: Europes
House Divided 1490-1700, which won the Wolfson Prize for History and the British
Academy Award. Diarmud MacCullochs six-part television series, A History of
Christianity, airs on BBC television this autumn.
