    Breathing Deep: Life in the Spirit of Easter

    ,
    Breathing Deep draws on the stories told in the gospels about the resurrection of Jesus. From the time of their writing and first telling, these stories have been seen as invitations to allow the resurrection to reshape the way that life can be lived. The forty reflections in this book imagine those invitations as gifts for us now, opening up the possibility of something new in our lives, our dreams, our hopes. But they also come with a provocative edge, challenging us to find the courage to live in the spirit of the resurrection when everything seems to gravitate towards death and destruction. The resurrection of Jesus was an extraordinary happening in history, but more than a one-off event. Resurrection reveals that the better, more peaceful and hopeful world we dream of is possible, and that it must first take shape within us.

    Some Small heaven: Seeking Light in Winter, Advent, Christmas and Epiphany

    ,
    Winter tests our hope and resolve. In the Northern hemisphere the temperature drops. Storms disturb. Light fades. But this time of year also sees the festivals of Advent, Christmas and Epiphany. Each in some way is a reminder that light is never totally absent. Exploring a path through these festivals, Some Small Heaven seeks to discover the light within the darkness of winter – and within all our winters – to find some small heaven each day, even when life comes at us tough, hard and bleak. Whether we are waiting for a darkness to pass or yearning for a light to come, these daily reflections and images enable us to give our care and attention to both the waiting and the yearning and to recognise the gifts that such times may bring.

    Cave Refectory Road: monastic rhythms for contemporary living

    , ,
    In this short and eminently readable book, Ian Adams captures the essential genius of the monastic tradition and combines it with his own experience as poet, family man and abbot of a 'new-monastic community' to address the dis-ease of so much of our contemporary ways of living. His books gives simple practical inspiration for 'ordinary living' and re-calls monks and nuns, friars and sisters to the passion of their founders as it asks: 'How did the dynamic way of the passionate, scandalous re-imaginer Jesus give way to so much that is pointless, repressed and safe?' Abbot Stuart Burns OSB Ian skilfully opens up the Christian contemplative tradition in a grounded and accessible way for today's spiritual seeker. In an age when many are spiritually hungry, Ian opens up the Christian tradition in a way that is dynamically spiritual and authentically religious. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is seeking to establish a deep Christian faith and practice that can thrive in the complexity of the modern world.
