The project has disseminated reviews and other information about Christian books since the start of the Millennium. We regret that it is no longer possible to sustain it.
Beyond Our Tears
Resources for Times of Remembrance
Edited by Jean M. Mayland
Publisher:CTBI Distributed by Methodist Publishing House
The original initiative for this book came from the Millennium Group of Churches Together in England, which suggested the time was right for some revision of the traditional Remembrance services. The Royal British Legion expressed the view that the appropriate time for the publication of an official new service would be for use at Remembrance services in November 2005 and thereafter. This forms the first part of this book.
CTBI Presidents asked that the second part be developed out of the need for new material, to take into account other causes of widespread grief, and this collection is a first response.
The issue of the involvement of people of other faiths in acts of remembrance has been acknowledged, and the list of contributors demonstrates the wide range of sources these poems, prayers and readings come from.
