Things Old and New An Anthology by Audrey Stanley

The wide-ranging interests of Audrey Stanley, an experienced writer, are given expression in this selection of her writings. Music and poetry, the developing world, the history of slavery, the Wesleys and the Methodist Church are united in this anthology of her poetry, magazine articles and words for worship.


Knowing something of Audrey Stanley s quality as a stylist, I took up this book eagerly and was not disappointed. On page after page she delights as in a distinctive voice she reveals something of the glory of God not just in religious verse and hymns but bursting out of her accounts of the everyday world. She finds something memorable in whatever catches her eye. Revd. Dr. Colin Morris, writer and broadcaster. This anthology is a treasury of good things; the product of rich experience, a clear eye and a fertile imagination. Here is insight, reflection, story, poetry, pathos, prayer and fun. I warmly commend this collection. Revd. Tom Stuckey, Past President of the Methodist Conference
