            It was one of the most startling moments in the modern history of the City of London. In 2011, the Occupy movement set up camp around St Paul's Cathedral. Giles Fraser, who was Canon Chancellor of the Cathedral, gave them his support. It ended in disaster. This remarkable book is... the story of the personal crisis that followed, and its surprising consequences. As Giles Fraser found himself crushed between the forces of protest, the needs of the church and the implacable City of London, he resigned, and was plunged into depression. As his life fell apart and he battled with ideas of suicide, Fraser found himself by chance one day in Liverpool, outside the great Victorian synagogue once presided over by a distant ancestor. Suddenly he realized that there was a great deal he did not know about himself, about his relatives and about his Jewish roots. Fraser calls this book 'a ghost story' and it is a book which is indeed filled with many ghosts. His search into his family's Jewish past makes this both a fascinating personal story and a wonderful piece of writing about theology and the roots of Christianity and Judaism. It is a book about the deepest, most ancient elements in our culture, and the most modern and personal. It is throughout alive with the charm and intellectual vigour which have made Fraser such an admired and controversial preacher and broadcaster.

            The intersect between law and religion has ancient origins and has continued into contemporary times as a topic of examination, litigation and media attention - in particular around rights, discrimination and education. The Law of Religion in New Zealand, by Juliet Chevalier-W...atts, covers key areas of religion in a legal context. The first chapter introduces the reader to law and religion generally, considering the general relationship between the two; religion and the state; the meaning and place of religion, and religion's general and legal definitions. Later chapters consider topics within New Zealand specifically such as religion in society, including Maori and religion and the post-colonisation religious landscape; freedom of religion; religion and family; religion and employment; religion and charity; and religion and education. The book references nearly 50 past and present statutes and legislative instruments that have developed the legal standing point for religion and law in New Zealand.

            The Best Catholics in the World: The Irish, the Church and the End of a Special Relationship

            When Berlin-based journalist Derek Scally goes to the Christmas Vigil Mass on a visit home to Dublin, the once-packed suburban church where he was altar boy is quiet and ageing like its congregants. The dwindling power of the Church in Ireland is undeniable. Scally sees that the ...Irish are dealing with just as great a shock to their sense of collective identity as the East Germans after the fall of Communism. The Best Catholics in the World is Scally's response - an empathetic and engaging voyage into the story of Irish Catholicism: why the Church had a unique hold on the Irish; what went wrong; and how the Irish are facing - or not facing - a relationship that was dysfunctional in many respects. Researched over two years, and including dozens of interviews conducted in Ireland and further afield, The Best Catholics in the World is a lively, original, moving and thought-provoking account of a country grappling with its troubling past and confusing present.
