    Celebrating Holy Communion
    - Paperback - Saint Andrew
    'Celebrating' and 'Holy Communion' are not always used in the same sentence about what can be a solemn and awe-inspiring ceremony. But it is important to acknowledge that there is joy in believing. Death has been overcome and there is a new creation. The Sacrament of the Lord's Supper draws us, by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, into a feasting where our sinful past must be laid aside and the life of the reign of God fully anticipated. This book has been written both for ministers and people in the congregations of the Church of Scotland.

    How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life: An Unexpected Guide To Human Nature And Happiness
    Russell D. Roberts - Hardback - Portfolio Penguin
    'The Wealth of Nations' remains a pillar in economic theory, but Adam Smith considered his other, lesser known great work a superior book. Economics professor Russell Roberts always meant to read 'The Theory of Moral Sentiments', and when he finally did, it changed his life. Rather than read the dense tome, Roberts has devised an ingenious way to 'channel' Adam Smith by presenting his lessons in an accessible and fun way.

    Old Berwick
    John Griffiths - Paperback - Stenlake Publishing
    This illustrated history of Berwick and environs features many unusual images of a town that has been much photographed in the past and is companion to the author's already published Old Spittal and Tweedmouth. About a quarter of the book is devoted to the landward settlements of Paxton, Horncliffe and Foulden and there are scenes outwith the town such as New Mills on the Whiteadder and fording boxes on the Tweed.

    Old Burghead, Cummingston And Hopeman
    Douglas Lockhart - Paperback - Stenlake Publishing
    Burghead, Cummingston and Hopeman were planned settlements funded and built by local landowners to stimulate economic activity and thus increase the value of their estates. Fishing was the principal industry so harbour and maritime photographs form a large part of this book. Besides these there are photographs of the streets and social history like Baden-Powell's visit in 1915 and army camps of Seaforths and Gordons. The author ties this all together with very informative captions.

    Old Lurgan: With Waringstown And Moira
    Rose Jane Leslie - Paperback - Stenlake Publishing
    This illustrated history has about 60 photos of these County Armagh settlements, the biggest of which is Lurgan, which had its origins in the 1610 Plantation of Ulster. From small beginnings Lurgan grew substantially with the development of the linen industry in the 19th century and the townscapes shown in the book reflect the architecture of the late Georgian and Victorian period. The book also includes the smaller settlements of Magheralin, Moira, Dollingstown, Maghera and Waringstown.

    Old Seahouses
    Katrina Porteous - Paperback - Stenlake Publishing
    This book mainly covers the period 1900 to 1950 when the fishing industry was thriving and Seahouses was a working town. The sea, fisher life and fisher folk as well as the harbour and the lifeboat therefore dominate this book although it also includes old images of the town's streets almost devoid of life, unlike today when Seahouses teems with tourists.
