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.

by Stephen Cottrell, Steven Croft, John Finney, Felicity Lawson and Robert Warren
Publisher:Church House Publishing (CHP) part of Hymns Ancient & Modern
1st edition published 1996
Nurture is the main stage of the Emmaus Course, designed to help people move on from knowing nothing about the Christian faith to becoming established as a new Christian in the life of the Church.
This second edition has been fully revised and now includes a welcome CD-ROM with a wealth of support material. This includes files for concise handouts, which can be downloaded for each member of a group. Previously these were lengthier and could only be photocopied from the book.
Nurture comprises fifteen sessions, each with enough material for one evening. A session contains leader’s notes and handouts referred to above. Leader’s notes have been extensively revised and updated and now include helpful background reading, together with a range of suggestions for other helpful materials. The addition of icons makes it much easier to locate particular passages quickly and improves the appearance of the text.
As a leader, I have found this book a considerable improvement on the first edition and I would recommend it to anyone thinking of running an Emmaus course.
