The Warriors Who Do Not Fight audiobook transspaser

The Warriors Who Do Not Fight (Audiobook)

Alison Phipps & Tawona Sitholé

Audio download version with voices, and original music by Gameli Tordzro.

In September 2015 the world woke up to the fact that people seeking refuge from war and persecution were drowning by their thousands in the Mediterranean. Alison Phipps and Tawona Sitholé were working together in Ghana at the time, which is where this conversation in poetry began. In an echoing call and response they offer words for these times of war; ways of wondering what it means to resist; to suffer with; to bear witness; to seek companionship; to be part of the agony of a family made in love, and parting, separated by land, sea and paperwork.

Runtime 1hr:27m:30s

Luminous, beautiful and sore. Poetry that is lyrical and tender, wounded and elegiac, probing and incantatory. And above all else life-affirming.
Karine Polwart, Scottish singer-songwriter

West transspaser

West

(Book & e-book)

Kenneth Steven

A new collection of poems inspired by the landscapes of Scotland and beyond, and dedicated to Kenneth’s late sister, peace activist Helen Steven: ‘She was Scotland to me …’

Kenneth Steven is best-known as a poet, although he’s also very much a novelist and children’s author. It’s the wildscape of Scotland that has been his primary inspiration. He grew up in Highland Perthshire and was taken every summer to the west coast and the islands. At the heart of those islands was Iona, the place that from childhood has been his spiritual home.

The poems are full of shining images of land and sea, and of echoes of the people who once lived in these wild and remote places; a potent reminder of the history in our geographies.
Kathy Galloway

Kenneth is regarded as one of Scotland’s finest poets and prose writers, gaining excellent reviews for his work. His admirers have included the late Poet Laureate Ted Hughes.

Field With a View

Science and faith in a time of climate change

(Book & e-book)

Katharine M Preston

Katharine Preston challenges us to think more deeply about the human condition and our choices in this time of ever-increasing climate disturbance. She writes for scientists leery of faith, people of faith who know and love the miracles of science, and anybody who shares the vision of the planet as a sacred community.

Fascinating theological reflection – grounded in the real world, and in the greatest crisis of our time on earth. I’m so glad someone is asking these questions.
Bill McKibben
Author Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?

There will be more books like this. There have to be. But read this one now, and be uplifted by Katharine’s sense of wonder, fed by her scientific and theological literacy, her experiential reasoning, and her realistic and timely passion for the Earth and all its creatures in this, our age of accelerating climate crisis.
David Coleman
Environmental Chaplain with Eco-Congregation Scotland
