Vivien Whelpton’s Richard Aldington: Poet, Soldier and Lover 1911-1929
Richard Aldington: Poet, Soldier and Lover 1911-1929
by Vivien Whelpton
Whelpton’s account is formidably thorough, and a valuable addition to the biographical resources previously available to the Aldington scholar; it will also be useful to students of the First World War, modernist literature and the early twentieth century […] Vivien Whelpton has made an important contribution to Aldington scholarship, and I await the proposed volumes detailing Aldington’s early and late years with interest.

The Scarlet Woman and the Red Hand
Evangelical Apocalyptic Belief in the Northern Ireland Troubles
by Joshua T. Searle
This book provides a fascinating insight into the role, interpretation, dissemination and uptake of apocalyptic-eschatological texts. It is nuanced, complex, and sometimes difficult to read, but it is worth the effort as it fills a lacuna in our understanding of the role of religion in the formation of identity and the interconnection of religion and politics in the Irish context, and it adds greatly to the manner in which the recent conflict in the North is viewed and understood.

The Atheist’s Primer
by Michael Palmer
Palmer’s book is refreshing in that it approaches atheism from a philosophical perspective, reviewing the major intellectual objections against the notion of God from the ancient world to the present…These form a narrative of Western atheism’s progression that is highly readable and accessible to the general reader.

From Leeds College of Art to Leeds Polytechnic 1963-1973
by James Charnley
The book is far more than a narrow history of a period in the development of a regional art college. The text illuminates a world that is far removed and unrecognisable from any phase of education today. James Charnley writes in a clear style that avoids jargon and any attempt to over-theorise or confuse the reader with esoteric language.

Trinity After Pentecost
by William P. Atkinson
‘This is a fine, concise, systematic and inspiring book about the Trinity. Atkinson’s style, as those who have read his other books know, is noted for its clarity and precision…This is a book that I hope will become a classic among Pentecostals since it addresses issues that are well beyond the sterile argumentation that sometimes occurs.’

In the Fellowship of His Suffering
A Theological Interpretation of Mental Illness
by Elahe Hessamfar
Elahe Hessamfar’s book is most welcome, revealing and challenging to psychiatry, theology, religion and academia […] I commend this book to the readers of MHC&R for its revelations and its challenge to all embroiled in the care and treatment of mental illness, the forgotten leprosy of our times.
