    Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s New Monasticism: A Central Influence

    Who is my Neighbour? The Global and Personal Challenge

    What should Christ's injunction to 'love your neighbour' mean in practice today? A team of leading theologians and practitioners explores this question and considers its bearing on the politics of poverty, discrimination and immigration, ecology and the fallout from recent political upheavals in Europe and America.

    'This remarkable book is most timely, for it comes in the midst of an acute campaign of anti-neighbourliness ... While the essays are intensely focused, the writers call attention to the thick complexity and multidimensional practice of neighbourliness. These essays are richly suggest of new openings for thought and action of a transformative kind.'

    Watching, Waiting, Walking: A pattern of prayer and a path for disciples

    Engaging and anecdotal in style, Watching, Waiting, Walking is structured around three key moments in the transformation of one of Jesus' closest friends: St Peter. In the garden of Gethsemane, Peter is told to 'watch' his life. Then, along with the other disciples on the Mount of Transfiguration, he is told to 'wait' for the Holy Spirit. And in Jerusalem, following Pentecost, he 'walks' out to address the crowd, and subsequently heals a crippled man who begins to walk himself. Andy Rider believes that reflecting on this pattern of watching, waiting and walking can not only help to shape our prayers on a daily basis, but also to deepen our ability to perceive where we are in the cycle of discipleship. And given the author's honesty about his now times of struggle and reassurance, this warm-hearted column cannot fail to encourage us – whatever our circumstances – to become more open to the work of God's transforming spirit.

    Without Apology: Sermons for Christ’s Church

    'I am convinced nothing is more important for the recovery of preaching as a central act of the church than that those who preach trust that God is going to show up when the Word is rightly proclaimed. Too often those who preach fear those to whom they preach when in fact we ought to fear God. If God is rightly expected to show up, if God is rightly feared, then those who preach and those who hear will understand no explanation is required.' (from the introduction) • Seventeen sermons from one of the best-known theologians in the US, from Saints and Letting Go to Recognising Jesus/Seeing Salvation and Clothe Your Ministers in Righteousness • Two bonus presentations on Leadership and An Open Letter to Christians Beginning College in the appendix

    Love, Remember: 40 poems of loss, lament and hope

    ,
    We live in  culture that allows little room for grief and tears. Funerals are often 'celebrations of life', yet we need to mark and lament loss, to name death and to  confront it. Death is not 'nothing at all', as one popular funeral reading suggests, but a seemingly searing and inexplicable rupture of all that we have known. In Love, Remember, the poet and priest Malcolm Guite chooses and reflects on forty poems, from Shakespeare to Carol Ann Duffy, that offer something of a map and some notes for travellers across this difficult terrain. From the threshold of death and the shock of loss, to remembering with love and looking forward in hope, this compassionate and wise companion reveals that the journey of grief, for all its twists and turns and setbacks, is also where we may experience sudden moments of grace, unexpected glimpses of hope and intimations of immortality.

    Accidental Saints. Finding God in All the Wrong People

    ,
    What if the annoying person you try to avoid is actually seconds away from becoming an accidental saint in your life? What if, even in our persistent failings, holy moments are waiting to happen? In Accidental Saints, New York Times bestselling author Nadia Bolz-Weber invites readers into a surprising encounter with what she calls 'a religious but not-so-spiritual life.' Tattooed, angry, and profane, this unlikely priest stubbornly, sometimes hilariously, resists the God she feels called to serve. But God keeps showing up in the least likely of people―a church-loving agnostic, a drag queen, and a gun-toting member of the NRA. As she lives and worships alongside these 'accidental saints,' Nadia is swept into first-hand encounters with grace―a gift that often feels less like being wrapped in a warm blanket and more like being hit by a blunt instrument. But by this grace, people are transformed in ways they couldn't have been on their own. In a time when many have become disillusioned with Christianity, Accidental Saints demonstrates what happens when ordinary people share bread and wine, struggle with scripture together, and tell each other the truth about their real lives. This unforgettable account of their faltering steps toward wholeness will ring true for believer and sceptic alike. Told in Nadia’s trademark confessional style, Accidental Saints is the stunning next work from one of today’s most important religious voices.

    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

    Farmageddon: The True Costs of Cheap Meat

    ,
    We no longer know for certain what is entering the food chain and what we are eating. We are reaching a tipping point as the farming revolution threatens our countryside, health and the quality of our food.
    • Our health is under threat: antibiotics used worldwide are routinely given to industrially farmed animals, contributing to the emergence of deadly antibiotic-resistant superbugs.
    • Wildlife is being systemically destroyed: a chemical assault has decimated the wild insect population.
    • Cereals that could feed billions are now increasingly grown as animal fodder.
    Farmageddon is a terrifying investigative journey behind the closed doors of a runaway industry across the world - from the UK, Europe and the USA, to China and South America. It is both a wake-up call to change our current food production and eating practices and an attempt to find a way to a better farming future.

    Pioneering Spirituality: Resources for reflection and practice

    , ,
    Pioneering ministry sounds like something you do, something active, even something driven. However, prayer and contemplation are at its heart, paying attention to God, to the world and to oneself - a kind of being that goes hand in hand with doing. Pioneering requires a spirituality that will fuel a life lived beyond the borders of the church. In this collection, a range of practitioners explore the inner and outer dimensions of pioneering spirituality. Offering many proven and innovative ideas, they explore what resources, fuels and sustains a life of pioneering mission. What is the spirituality in the UK's wider culture and how do we connect with it appropriately? How might spiritual treasures such as the Eucharist, prayer, pilgrimage, spiritual direction and community rhythms of life be expressed to those with whom pioneers share life? And how might communities of disciples grow and be formed in this pioneering spirituality?

    Daring Greatly: How the courage to be vulnerable transforms the way we live, love, parent and lead

    Every time we are introduced to someone new, try to be creative or start a difficult conversation, we take a risk. We feel uncertain and exposed. We feel vulnerable. Most of us try to fight those feelings - we strive to appear perfect. In a powerful new vision Dr. Brené Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability, and dispels the widely accepted myth that it's a weakness. She argues that vulnerability is in fact a strength, and when we shut ourselves off from revealing our true selves we grow distanced from the things that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Daring Greatly is the culmination of twelve years of groundbreaking social research across the home, relationships, work, and parenting. It is an invitation to be courageous; to show up and let ourselves be seen, even when there are no guarantees. This is vulnerability. This is daring greatly.

    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.
