Enter fruitfully into the seasons of the Christian year in the company of the church's most senior pastors and teachers.



What are the seasons of the Church's year?



Why have they become shaped as they have and what can we do to make them good?



Contents include:



- Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge, on 'A good Christmas': 'Christmas is one of the defining points of the year for all Christians, and one of the most difficult festivals to keep spiritually.'

- Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, on 'A good Lent': 'Because he is God, and also Friend, we are touched at the depth of our beings, as we live with him through every event of his trial, death and resurrection.'

- Stephen Cottrell,Bishop of Chelmsford, on 'A good Holy Week': 'Jesus enters Jerusalem in triumph, and a week later he is dead. Holy Week is the great crisis of Christianity . . .'

- Stephen Conway, Bishop of Ely, on 'A good Easter': 'Too often, we think of Easter as just one day, but in reality it's the fifty-day season during which we explore the disciples' experiences of the risen Christ and the meaning of the resurrection.
