Cowley Publications, publisher of the New Church's Teaching Series, has a series of books on prayer and spirituality called Cloister Books. The title is drawn from the monastic custom of walking slowly while reading or meditating in the monastery cloister, a place of silence, centering, and calm. In the pages of these books you will find a similar space in which to pray and reflect on the presence of God.

These gift-edition books are designed to be smaller in size: 5" x 7" and about one hundred pages, with graceful covers in matte finish and convenient flaps (as in hardcover books) that serve as bookmarks while reading. They are books to be read over and over, and make thoughtful gifts.

Barbara Brown Taylor's When God is Silent, is a consideration of how we are to speak and preach about God in a world where words are abundant, cheap, and often meaningless.




Martin L. Smith, SSJE's Love Set Free: Meditations on the Passion According to St. John, is an ideal book for Lent and Holy Week, as well as for other times of the year.

John Claypool's Mending the Heart, is a wise and pastoral look at the wounds of grief, grievance, and guilt.
