We are currently in process of building our library. Anyone is welcome to donate or borrow a book. If you have a particular book that you would like everyone to know about, we can highlight it as a 'recommend read' on our front page. All you have to do is give a brief synopsis of the book and explain why you would recommend it. All 'recommended reads' will be listed on this page in case you have missed the highlight. As our library continues to grow, eventually all our books will be listed here. Anyone interested in contributing, recommending, borrowing or organizing, please contact Fr Harvey.
A Promise to Astrid (2012) by: Michael Tourville
This book is written by a local author telling a true story that happened at a local Episcopal Church. It was recently made into a Hallmark movie! It describes the relationship between a young man (Tourville himself) and an older woman (Astrid) who was his neighbor and fellow parishioner. Tourville and Astrid engaged in a loving competition to see who could help the other more. The book includes a preface by our very own Scott Seabury, who also has a cameo in the Hallmark movie and whose family partly inspired the portrayal of the priest in the film!
There will be a screening of the movie at St. David's when it is released in January. We will announce the date and time as soon as it becomes available.
The Anglican Vision by: James Griffiss
In this book, Griffiss explains what it means to be Christian in an Anglican (i.e. Episcopalian) way. The book combines personal stories with history and theology. As it says on the back of the book, Griffiss "focuses especially on Anglicanism's ability to hold together theological continuity with social and cultural change, because of its particular grasp of the meaning of the Incarnation--the Good News of God dwelling in and among us." Perhaps best of all, the book is only 130 pages!
