Church and State in the Post-Colonial Era: The Anglican Church and the Constitution in New Zealand.

Author: Noel Cox
ISBN: 978-1-877332-60-9
Price: NZ$65.00, plus p&p

This book is an exploration of some aspects of the basis of the legal authority of the Church, as a tool in exploring the relationship of church and State in a post-colonial world. It takes as its particular example the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia, but examines issues and concepts which have a much broader, indeed universal, relevance. The Anglican Church in New Zealand is a part of the universal Christian church, and as such the issues which face it, although in some respects unique, are echoed throughout the rest of God’s earth, to a greater or lesser degree. The study is especially important at a time when the law may prove of benefit in helping to resolve seeming intractable differences in the Anglican Communion.




Twenty-Four Hours with God: Rediscovering the Sabbath
Author: Ritchie Way
ISBN 978-1-877332-59-3
Price: NZ$25.00 plus p&p

The rush of  the modern world and our distance from the origins of Christianity have clouded the great blessings of keeping the Sabbath Day as a day of rest and refreshment, and spiritual focus.  Ritchie Way begins his message with an exposition of some of the references to the Sabbath in early Christian literature, and then moves to a consideration of the Sabbath within the Ten Commandments.  Jesus and the Sabbath, the Holy Spirit and the Sabbath, and the Sabbath as covenant and sacrament are explored.  Ritchie Way then moves to practical advice for modern Christians on how the Sabbath is best observed.  The advice given is practical, moderate and sensible.  This is a book for all those who take the Sabbath seriously – and for those who do not.

This book is A5 size (210x147mm), 96 pages, greyscale illustrations, Index.

Ritchie Way is Executive Editor for the Good News Unlimited magazine.  He has served as a church pastor in New Zealand and Australia, and as a missionary and Church administrator in Papua New Guinea.
