A new series is being released by DLT, developed by editors Rev’d Bryony Taylor (author of More TV, Vicar? and Rector of Barlborough & Clowne), Mother Rebecca Amoroso, and Fr David Twomey
The second titles in the series, to be released as an eBook on June 26th (paperback will follow February 2021), Being Humans, is a six week course exploring themes of Slavery, Othering, How we Grieve and Life After Death, Identity, Technology: Friend or Foe?, and Activism. Similarly, each week will begin with a description of a key scene from Humans, consideration of a discussion on the theme by an appropriate Christian writer, then a Bible study including prayer, reflection and Bible study. It is not essential for group members to have seen the television programme, but it will provide useful food for thought for those that have.
I was one of several authors : Gemma Sampson (priest and activist in the fight against modern slavery with the Clewer Initiative and Hope for Justice), Chine McDonald (PR lead for Christian Aid, Thought for the Day broadcaster), Juliet Stephenson (priest and Director of the Good Funeral Company), Rachel Mann (priest and author of From Now On and Fierce Imaginings), Bex Lewis (writer and commentator on technology and its interface with faith and life) and Chris Howson (priest, campaigner and author A Just Church).
If ‘Call the Midwife’ is more your thing, that’s the other book in this new series.
