    Life of the Beloved and Our Greatest Gift

    ,
    The real 'work' of prayer is to become silent and listen to the voice that says good things about me. The late Henri Nouwen was one of the twentieth century's greatest spiritual writers, and this book brings together two of his most inspirational pastoral works, reissued to mark the twentieth anniversary of his death. Life of the Beloved asks how one can live a spiritual life in a completely secular culture. The greatest challenge, concludes Nouwen, is to bridge the gap between secular and sacred within the human self as a human being beloved of God. Our Greatest Gift is a mediation on dying. Dying and death can often bring fear, but the experience of dying and caring for the dying can become the deepest experience of love. Now encourages us to ask, 'How can my death become fruitful in the loves of others?'. Ultimately, it is the greatest gift we have to offer.

    Celebration of Discipline: The Path to Spiritual Growth

    Praised by many as the most important contemporary book on Christian spirituality, this timeless classic has helped well over a million people discover a richer spiritual life infused with joy, peace and a deeper understanding of God. This book explores the 'classic disciplines' of the Christian faith: the inward disciplines of meditation, prayer, fasting and study; the outward disciplines of simplicity, solitude, submission and service; and the corporate disciplines of confession, worship, guidance and celebration.

    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. Ian Mobsby, priest missioner to the Moot Community, London

    Contemplative Prayer

    ,
    Thomas Merton's classic study of monastic prayer and contemplation brings a tradition of spirituality alive for the present day. But, as A M Allchin points out in his Introduction to this new edition, Contemplative Prayer also shows us the present day in a new perspective, because we see it in the light of a long and living tradition. Merton stresses that in meditation we should not look for a 'method' or 'system' but cultivate an 'attitude' or 'outlook': faith, openness, attention, reverence, expectation, trust, joy. God is found in the desert of surrender, in giving up any expectation of a particular message and 'waiting on the Word of God in silence'. Merton insists on the humility of faith, which he argues 'will do far more to launch us into the full current of historical reality than the pompous rationalisation of politicians who think they are somehow the directors and manipulators of history'.

    Naked Spirituality: A Life with God in Twelve Simple Words

    , ,
    Using twelve words as a structure, Brian McLaren shows how we can connect with God in practical, doable and durable ways, and use that connection to serve others. "This is one of McLaren's greatest hits. It is a book that strips things down to the bare essentials, cutting through stale debates, old ideologies, and ethereal theology to unveil a simple love for God and neighbour that is worth devoting life to....You will find something on these pages that will help you breathe again" Shane Claiborne, author of The Irresistible Revolution.

    The Cost of Discipleship

    What can the call to discipleship, the adherence to the word of Jesus, mean today to the businessman, the soldier, the labourer, or the aristocrat? What did Jesus mean to say to us? What is His will for us today? Drawing on the Sermon on the Mount, Dietrich Bonhoeffer answers these timeless questions by providing a seminal reading of the dichotomy between 'cheap grace' and 'costly grace'. 'Cheap grace', Bonhoeffer wrote, 'is the grace we bestow on ourselves...grace without discipleship...Costly grace is the Gospel which must be sought again and again, the gift which must be asked for, the door at which a man must know...It is costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it give the man the only true life.' The Cost of Discipleshipis a compelling statement of the demands of sacrifice and ethical consistency from a man whose life and thought were exemplary articulations of a new type of leadership inspired by the Gospel, and imbued with the spirit of Christian humanism and a creative sense of civic duty.
