New books by faculty
A book on mission published in January and edited by Revd Dr John Corrie (above, centre) Trinity's Tutor in Mission, was stimulated by the internationally known mission theologian Revd Dr J. Andrew Kirk (above, right).
Mission in Context: explorations inspired by J. Andrew Kirk (Ashgate, 2012), edited by John Corrie and Cathy Ross (of Ripon College Cuddesdon and Regent's Park College, Oxford), explores current reflections on a wide range of issues including poverty and injustice, environmentalism, secularism, the place of Scripture in a pluralist culture, science and faith, liberation theology, and oppression and reconciliation. Seventeen mission specialists from across the world, including the editors, have contributed chapters to the book.

Kirk's influence and reputation is international; mission in Latin America has been especially enriched by his innovative thinking on revolutionary politics, contextualization and holistic mission. He visted Trinity in 2010, taking part in one of our postgraduate seminars, as well as in a round-table discussion on Islam and the West
Revd Dr Nigel Scotland's Rome: City of Empire, Christendom and Culture is the latest addition to a series of Christian guidebooks published by Day One Publications. It includes information on the main areas to visit, including Pompeii, with background information on the Roman Empire and the early Christian world. Full of photographs and maps, it gives an invaluable pocket-sized guide to take around as you travel.
