The Revd Sidney Chambers is one of the country’s best-loved priests.  Who is he?  Well, he’s the hero of the TV series Grantchester, based on the books by James Runcie, son of the former Archbishop.  His latest book The Road to Grantchester, actually goes back to before the priest became involved in detective mysteries and traces the story of a young Chambers serving in Italy in World War Two.  Runcie has drawn on several aspects of his father’s life to explore the way in which his fictional clergyman first comes to faith and the dramas he encounters on the path to priesthood.  

We are delighted to announce the arrival of Living in the Eighth Day: The Christian Week and the Paschal Mystery by Burrswood Chaplain Revd Dr Steven Underdown. Based on work done towards his PhD thesis, Steven presents his view that it is only through this mystery of Jesus’ passion, death and resurrection that human beings find their true fulfillment and maturity. He explores ways in which church communities can establish certain patterns of life and worship – almost aiming for a ‘Holy Week in miniature’ every week - to enable us to grow in and respond to this divine mystery. He concludes with an original ‘theology of time’ with particular focus on the Sabbath , contrasting the Jewish Sabbath of rest with the Christian Sabbath of new beginnings.
