Literature Committee

Added on 25/02/2013

The Literature Committee continues to meet regularly. Of the current publications and projects underway, a new series of selected dissertations from Masters students at the Church of Ireland Theological Institute (CITI) is an exciting development and the first series is set to be published within this academic year, featuring three titles from CITI students who graduated in 2012. It is hoped that the booklets will be published annually and will be known as the ‘Braemor Park Series’.

The three new titles which will be published soon are:

Could the wave of New Monasticism, through its characteristic marks, contain the catalyst that the Church of Ireland may adopt to reconnect with today’s society? by Jonathan Campbell–Smyth. The Revd Jonathan Campbell–Smyth is currently curate in Coleraine (Connor).

The Place of Lament and the ‘Catharsis of the Complaint’ in Response to the Problem of Evil by John M Godfrey. The Revd John Godfry is currently curate in Galway (Tuam).

Is the New Masculinity Movement a viable model for engaging men with God and the church? by Alistair James Morrison. The Revd Alistair Morrison is currently curate in Ballyhome (Down).

The titles will include a preface by the Director of CITI, the Revd Dr Maurice Elliott. Details of a launch will be publicised in due course.
