    The Book of Forgiving: The fourfold path for healing ourselves and our world

    ,
    Each of us has a deep need to forgive, but it sometimes feels like an impossible task. In The Book of Forgiving, Archbishop Desmond and Reverend Mpho Tutu offer to guide you on a path towards forgiveness, leading you away from past pain. Desmond Tutu's role as Chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in post apartheid South Africa taught him much about forgiveness, as he led the country along a difficult path of healing. After much reflection, the Tutus have seen that there are four important aspects to this path: Telling the Story; Naming the Hurt; Granting Forgiveness; Renewing or Releasing the Relationship. As you travel along the fourfold path yourself, there will be meditations, exercises and rituals to guide and help you as you walk. This will not be an easy journey, but in the end, it is the only path worth taking.

    The Contemplative Pastor

    Any pastor who needs to get back to spiritual basics will do well to read and absorb this book. Known to many as “a pastor’s pastor,” Eugene Peterson here speaks words of wisdom and refreshment for pastors caught in the busyness of preaching, teaching, and “running the church.” To get at the often overlooked essentials of ministry, Peterson redefines the meaning of pastor through three vivid, strengthening adjectives – unbusy, subversive, and apocalyptic – and then focuses on pastoral ministry and spiritual direction “between Sundays.” Illustrated with engaging anecdotes from Peterson’s own experience as a pastor, the book includes poetic reflections on the Beatitudes and discussions of such themes as curing souls, the ministry of small talk, the language of prayer, and sabbatical. The Contemplative Pastor ends with several fervent poems centred on the incarnation, the doctrine closest to pastoral work. Entitled “The Word Made Flesh,” this concluding section is a fitting finale to Peterson’s discerning, biblically based insights on the art of pastoring.

    The Day is Yours: Slow Spirituality in a Fast Moving World

    ,
    The Day is Yours is a protest against the culture of speed both in the culture at large, but also more ominously, in the church itself. Rooted in the monastic liturgy of the hours, The Day is Yours argues that in order for Christians to act as a truly prophetic witness, in a time of cultural decadence, they must recover a more biblical rhythm in which work, rest, relationships, worship and prayer are held together in creative tension. Written by a pastor, the central thrust of

    God Untamed : Out of the Spiritual Comfort Zone

    , , ,
    Powerful. Almighty. Sovereign. Magnificent. Fearsome. This is the God we encounter in the Bible and in prayer--a God who astounds. Yet, Johannes Hartl argues that this is an astonishment that many have lost in the West today. A challenging rejection of 'feel-good' Christianity, God Untamed explores the deep crisis of faith that effects the Western world. At a time where the need for spirituality is great, yet churches are losing more and more members; in the face of a generation with so many opportunities and so little direct threat, yet who are so anxious, depressed and disenchanted--Hartl speaks of the voice that can still oceans. God, as He encounters us, is not simply 'nice' and certainly not trivial or comfortable. He is fascinating and intimidating at the same time. Hartl calls us to rediscover this sense of wonder and re-imagine what it is to have a fear of God--not founded in a whimper at the unknown, but a respect borne out of watching His visible power in the nature of our world. Without this fear, Hartl warns that the church is in danger of weakening under the immense pressures of our times. God Untamed is a compelling charge to get out of our spiritual comfort zones to find a real, truly fulfilled and fulfilling faith.

    The Divine Embrace: Recovering the Passionate Spiritual Life

    , ,
    One of the most popular current views on spirituality is that there are varied paths to God. In this new Ancient-Future series book, Bob Webber evaluates this common misunderstanding of spirituality as separated from God's story, extremely self-focused, and shaped by our surrounding culture. This challenging work offers a corrective, calling us to an alternative Christian spirituality, one that reveals two sides-that of God's "divine embrace" of us and our passionate response. The Divine Embrace is a fresh, grounded look at true spirituality that will be embraced by pastors, thinking Christians, and anyone looking for an engaging and thorough treatment of this topic.

    The New Friars

    ,
    Across the ages God has consistently attracted a few in every crowd who would make and keep vows, and called them to stick out, act out and speak out. In The New Friars Scott Bessenecker profiles young Christians who have voluntarily removed themselves from the status quo in order to seek justice and mercy with the poorest of the world's poor. These new friars are carrying on the work of the monastic tradition, the spirit of Francis and Clare of Assisi, St. Patrick and St. Brigid, the Jesuits and Nestorians and Moravians. The New Friars will show you that with God all things even uncommon acts of courageous faith are possible.

    The Preaching Life: Living out your vocation

    , ,
    Barbara Brown Taylor considers how indifference and disillusion can be starting points of an exploration that leads us deeper into the truth of God, and how faith is a daily, hourly choice to act as though we do really believe that divine love girds the universe. Worship, prayer, reading the Bible (and letting it read us), the sacraments with their ability to bring us into the very precincts of heaven, and speaking the prophetic word are the essentials of the preaching life. With the devotion and skill of a dedicated artist Barbara Brown Taylor shows us how to hear, recognise and respond to God’s call.

    The Shaken Path: A Christian Priest’s Exploration of Modern Pagan Belief and Practice

    Despite modern Paganism being one of the fastest growing new religious movements in Britain and the USA, there is no up-to-date straightforward and informed introduction to modern Paganism from a Christian perspective. The Shaken Path addresses that gap. 'an accessible account of Pagan life which should go a long way to dispersing hostility and creating a better understanding on which Christians can get to know their Pagan neighbours.' Anne Richards, Church of England's National Adviser for New Religious Movements. 'The Shaken Path guides the reader through a variety of the main Pagan traditions, reflecting on similarities and difference found in Christian denominations and, in doing so, provides Christians with an opportunity for deeper reflections upon their own faith traditions and practices.' Mike Stygal, Chair of the Pagan Federation

    The Shed That Fed A Million Children: The extraordinary story of Mary’s Meals

    ,
    In 1992, Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow was enjoying a pint with his brother when he got an idea that would change his life – and radically change the lives of others. After watching a news bulletin about war-torn Bosnia, the two brothers agreed to take a week’s hiatus from work to help. What neither of them expected is that what began as a one-time road trip in a beaten-up Landrover rapidly grew to become Magnus’s life’s work – leading him to leave his job, sell his house and direct all his efforts to feeding thousands of the world’s poorest children. Magnus retells how a series of miraculous circumstances and an overwhelming display of love from those around him led to the creation of Mary’s Meals; an organisation that could hold the key to eradicating child hunger altogether. This humble, heart-warming yet powerful story has never been more relevant in our society of plenty and privilege. It will open your eyes to the extraordinary impact that one person can make. All royalties from the sale of this book go to support the work of Mary's Meals.
