The Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent Book 2020

Saying Yes to Life lifts our focus from natural, everyday concerns to issues that are having an impact on millions of lives around the world. As people made in the image of God, we are entrusted to look after what he has created: to share in God’s joy and ingenuity in making a difference for good. Ruth Valerio imaginatively draws on the Days of Creation (Genesis 1) as she relates themes of light, water, land, the seasons, other creatures, humankind, Sabbath rest and resurrection hope to matters of environmental, ethical and social concern.

Foundational to Saying Yes to Life is what it means to be human and, in particular, to be a follower of Jesus. Voices from around the world are heard throughout, and each chapter ends with discussion questions and a prayer to aid action and contemplation.

‘Ruth Valerio’s book is perfect for individuals and groups to think, reflect, pray and be challenged together.’ – Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury

‘An arresting and thought-provoking book, brilliantly conceived . . . by turns beautiful and sobering, encouraging and challenging.’ – Pete Wilcox, Bishop of Sheffield

‘Timely and on point [with] fine use of examples from a global perspective.’ – Rachel Mann, Church Times

‘Ruth Valerio is a true pioneer . . . This book brings us all the benefit of her hard-won experience and applied faith, and will be an essential resource for all concerned to live
the whole of their lives to God’s glory and for the healing of his creation.’ – Peter Harris, A Rocha on ‘L’ is for Lifestyle

DOWNLOADING INFORMATION

Our audiobooks download as zipped files (due to their size and for your convenience). Once unzipped you will find all of the mp3 files for your audiobook named, and in correct file order.  Due to the way Apple has designed iOS, iPhones and iPads don’t recognise these zip files automatically (unlike Android devices).  So, if you buy one of our titles via your iPhone or iPad, there are two ways to find and listen to your files:

[1] Download for FREE iZip for iOS – then download the audiobook using the link provided either on the webpage or the email we sent you. After the file has downloaded click on the Open With option and choose iZip. The app will open and ask if you want it to unzip all the files, say yes. A minute or so later you will have a list of mp3 files in order, and you just need to tap on the one you want to play and it will start playing in the Audioplayer. You can easily play, pause, jump forward or back.

[2] Slightly easier – download the zip file to your PC or MAC, unzip it to a folder you know the location of (such as your Music or Documents folder), then use iTunes to transfer the files in the same way you would a music album.

We hope you enjoy your audiobook and come back for more soon!
