My friend Phil Groom is running a petition to save Durham Cathedral Bookshop from being yet another victim of the SPCK takeover debacle.

Durham Cathedral bookshop is an amazing resource, and has been described by one eminent scholar as ‘the finest in the world’.

As a writer of Christian books (both academic and popular), a distance learning tutor for lay people wishing to pursue a theological education alongside their day-to-day lives, and someone who thinks biblical and theological literacy is an ongoing necessity for the renewal of Christ’s Church, it is a travesty that we are slowly loosing a chain of shops that supplied some of the most vital and relevant theological material.

Our SPCK shop in Bristol has been closed – don’t let Durham go the same way!
