New Daylight offers four months of daily Bible reading and reflection for everybody who wants to go deeper with God. It is ideal for those looking for a fresh approach to regular Bible study, and offers a talented team of contributors who present a Bible passage (text included), helpful comment and a  prayer or thought for the day ahead.


Art of WorshipIn this beautifully illustrated book, the Reverend Nicholas Holtam – Bishop of Salisbury – presents his
favorite paintings from the National Gallery, alongside quotations, prayers, and poetry. The selected illustrations
encourage the reader to think about how art can sometimes be a surprising doorway into our own spirituality. Holtam’s often highly personal observations inspire private prayer, meditation, and contemplation.


Room with a ViewWritten while Vicar of St Martin in the Fields, Nicholas Holtam reflects on important characteristics of parish ministry and mission. Like Trafalgar Square, it should be open to the world, not inward-looking; it should be a place of prayer and it should be open to the poorest. This was the vision which shaped Dick Sheppard’s work at St Martins – as the ‘ever-open door’.
