The Inclusive Church Resource book series is published by Darton Longman and Todd.

Designed as resource books for churches, each book has an introduction, theological reflection, stories from lived experience and a practical resource section

There are 6 books in the series.

The book on Poverty has an introduction by Inclusive Church trustee Savi Hensman. Susan Durber is Theology Advisor for Christian Aid. The book contains stories of lived experience from individuals and churches. The resource section is drawn together by Church Action on Poverty.

This is a really exciting project for Inclusive Church and we are proud to be working in partnership with DLT.

A comment in from someone who has read the first 2 books:

“Have just received the first books, and dived into one of them. They are excellent, and all churches should have them for the clergy, and PCC.”
