Richard and Ann’s excellent adventure to Europe in 2015

Richard learning to blogThis trip has been five years in the saving and planning with many books read and much consultation of trip advisor.  Initially I read hugely on the history of Sicily espccially the Normans in Sicily by John Julius Norwich but when the time came to get serious Sicily had to go and so did Krakow and Vienna. I read Burckhardt on the Renaissance twice; Cellini and Vasari on the painters; The huge illustrated Ars Sacra, The Rolf Tollman books on Rome, The Renaissance, Gothic, Romanesque and Baroque;  The Art Treasures of Italy; The Folio Best 100 paintings; The Louvre..All the Paintings; The Vatican..All the Paintings; Pevsner: The Architecture of Europe; and quite a few other reference works too many to mention.

New book on Science and Christian Faith

A Physicist and a Theologian discuss the limits of Science and the challenge of Christian Faith in the 21st Century. Dr Tony Pepper and Richard Prideaux were colleagues at St Paul’s Anglican Grammar School in Warragul Victoria Australia and began a conversation about Christian faith and how it could be combined with an equal commitment to the importance of physical science.  This book is the result of that conversation.
