Here are some links to my books, first the books I have written or edited and then books to which I have contributed:



What do Christians believe?

In this book, written for the reader looking for quick practical insights into the beliefs and practices of Christianity, Malcolm Guite offers a lucid summary and interpretation of the Christian faith. Jesus himself identified love as the essential element in both worship and daily life. Using this teaching, and the core Christian belief that Jesus was God’s way of opening himself to humanity, Guite explains the inner meaning of such key Christian teachings as atonement, redemption and the concept of God as Trinity.

Faithful Performances

The metaphor of performance has been applied fruitfully by anthropologists and other social theorists to different aspects of human social existence, and furnishes a potentially helpful model in terms of which to think theologically about Christian life.

Malcolm has contributed a chapter entitled ‘Our truest poetry is our most feignin… poetry, playfulness and truth’To learn more about this book, or to buy a copy, visit the Ashgate Books website at www.ashgate.comor buy it here from Amazon

Beholding The Glory

‘Here is a spendid contribution to a white-hot theological topic: the relationship between theology and the arts. In this book, a multi-faceted illumination is achieved by the distinguished contributors, who shine their spotlights not only on God’s truth as revealed in Jesus Christ, but upon the dynamic creativity of artists as they explore this truth in so many striking and stimulating ways. This is a compulsive read, richly rewarding, which made me realize the enormous importance of doing theology through the arts.’ Susan Howatch – author
