This wise and beautiful book, written in the form of spiritual letters, reflects on the themes of home and being at home: with ourselves, with each other, with the times we are living through, and with God. Nazareth, where Jesus spent his first thirty years, was a physical home but also a spiritual home and the place of nurture, dreaming, formation and becoming.

Richard Carter offers a wealth of insight for experiencing how, as Christians, we carry Nazareth, the place of God’s incarnate presence, with us wherever we are and how it becomes a home where the Word is made flesh again in our lives and we find our place of deepest belonging.

Rich in biblical reflection, poetic meditation and practical guidance for living in demanding times, Letters from Nazareth abounds in simple yet profound wisdom for our world today.

Richard Carter

Richard Carter is a priest at St Martin-in-the-Fields in London’s Trafalgar Square and leader of its Nazareth Community. He is the author of the bestselling The City is My Monastery and In Search of the Lost, a moving first-hand account of loss and grief after the violent deaths of seven members of a religious order in the Solomon Islands.

With characteristic honesty and sensitivity, Richard Carter writes letters to console, sometimes provoke but always to encourage and build up the people of God. At the hardest of times, at the bedside of a dying friend, or in the bewilderment of pandemic uncertainty, his personal call to surrender all to Christ is a call, as he outlines at the end of each chapter, not only to pray but to wonder. Read the letters written to the scattered community and you will feel they have been written only for you.' Lucy Winkett

'Richard Carter helps us see Nazareth for what it is: God accepting the hospitality of a human home, God in human flesh making divinity a home in which we may all find ourselves and each other. This book is another gem.' Rowan Williams

'A lyrical record of how contemplative prayer leads to resolute action in confronting the problems of our world.' Neil MacGregor

‘A deeply moving invitation to be at home, with ourselves and with each other, and ultimately in the Lord who dwells with us. These letters are inhabited by a peace born of prayer and silence which speaks to us all.’ Timothy Radcliffe OP

‘Deep and prayerful insights written to encourage and feed us along life’s way. This book is fabulous.’ Nicholas Holtam

‘Everyone needs by their side both the knowledge this heartfelt and luminous book keeps providing every time you go back to it, and the goodness inherent within it.’ Ruth Padel
