    The God of Intimacy and Action: Reconnecting ancient spiritual practices, evangelism and justice

    , ,
    The God of Intimacy and Action reveals how contemplative spiritual practices can lead to greater intimacy with God and fuel passion for reaching out to others, through spreading the Good News and fostering justice for the poor and oppressed. The authors show why this combination is not only crucial but historical: it is vividly demonstrated in the lives of saints such as St Francis of Assisi, Ignatius of Loyola and Catherine of Siena. Campolo and Darling explain mystical spirituality and its practices, and integrate them with evangelism and justice to illuminate what they call 'holistic Christianity'. They suggest specific ways to nurture and energise one's spirituality and show how to go beyond living a Christian life that merely emphasises right beliefs and right behaviours.

    , ,
    This warm-hearted book is for those of us who enter Advent longing for spiritual sustenance to balance the worldly charms of the Christmas season. Jesus' arrival in poverty and vulnerability provoked feelings of unease, as well as expectation and hope... How will we keep the faith as Christians called to live distinctively in an age of anxiety? Magdalen Smith believes we can be inspired by people from the past – those whose names are familiar or less so – whom the Church calls 'saints'. In these wide-ranging devotions, full of contemporary stories and enjoyable cultural allusions, she introduces 24 characters who manifest a mysterious dynamic... and enable us to glimpse holiness in a new way.
