The Rt. Rev'd Dr Gavin Ashenden has some superb homilies (sermons or talks) that are faithfully biblical in their teaching and utterly centred on Jesus. Well worth the viewing.

Here is Dr Ashenden recent talk on "
The practice of prayer" given at Burning Man on the 8th February. This is a long listen (about 50 minutes), but very well worth taking the trouble to listen to.

Warning:
this is radical, challenging and countercultural stuff. If you accept it, it is life changing too. But then that is exactly what Jesus and His good news is and always was.

Book Choice
Many Christians who are orthodox in belief are becoming deeply concerned by the rapid and aggressively pursued changes in society and culture that have occurred since the turn of the Century. In some cases these changes are completely contrary to established Christian orthodoxy and the plain teaching of scripture. Those pushing the new secular agenda should however be careful of what they wish for. This highly accessible book shows just how Christianity changed society for the better and what might be lost through the secularists current drive to remove Christianity from the public square.
