Villages without Walls: An Exploration of the Necessity of Building Christian Community in a Post-Christian World (Second Edition)
By Nigel Dixon 

There is a rising awareness of the need for churches to be more world aware and mission focussed. The absolute necessity of this cannot be questioned; the church is struggling to make an impact in the Western World. But greater outwardness will not necessarily solve the profound challenges before us. Without a communal centre a church will never aspire to a greater sense of mission. And without healthy community the Gospel cannot be demonstrated to a watching world. Our challenging reality is that churches are struggling to build effective, intimate community in a culture that is busy, broken and fractured.

Perspective of Pilgrimage

Our Place, Our Voice: Explorations in Contextual Theology - Women in the Anglican Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia 
By Council for Anglican Women's Studies 

I liken this anthology to a magnificent patchwork quilt.  The contributors are like my quilting ancestors in America.  Like the quilters, the theologians in this volume come from many different cultures and perspectives; each offers her unique gift that is brought together in this 'quilt'.  This finished piece becomes a contemporary snapshot that tells us where the spirit is moving at a given time within our community.  In time, I believe this work like a great quilt will become a treasured heirloom of the family of God in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia and beyond, so the global community will come to know the richness and diversity of this church.  Susanna Shelton, BA, MDiv, Theologian in Residence at the Anglican Parish of St John's Otumoetai, Tauranga

It is still imperative to provide a space for the explicit hearing of women's voices.  This volume does exactly that.  As we move further into the new millennium it gathers the myriad rich and diverse voices of Anglican women in Aotearoa New Zealand challenging themselves and their church to a new fidelity.  Elaine Wainwright is Professor of Theology, Head of the School of Theology at the University of Auckland, and long-term feminist biblical scholar.
