    Precious Thoughts: daily readings from Thomas Merton

    , ,
    Thomas Merton wrote to people of all faiths and none; he wrote to people who were searching, and those who were firmly established in religious orders; he wrote to students, peace activists and `ordinary' people who had read about him and were curious. Some are letters of spiritual direction, a sharing of spiritual insights and social concerns, some more personal. In this carefully selected collection, Merton scholar, Fiona Gardner, has focused on extracts that seem to speak to all who are searching. They have been chosen because they offer an opening into something other - to provide a way into both silence and contemplative prayer.

    Emotionally Healthy Relationships Day by Day : A 40-Day Journey to Deeply Change Your Relationships

    , ,
    Part of the bestselling Emotionally Healthy Spirituality book collection, this 40-day devotional by Peter Scazzero will help you cultivate your own personal relationship with Jesus rather than living off the spirituality of others. Emotionally Healthy Relationships Day by Day - just like its sister devotional, Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Day by Day - is your invitation into the ancient yet powerful discipline of the Daily Office, the practice of pausing morning and evening to reflect on God's work in your life. Each devotional will reflect on emotionally healthy relational themes, such as clarifying expectations, deep listening, and clean fighting. You'll will be ushered into a transformational practice that will deepen your daily walk with Jesus, and along the way, you'll discover the spiritual nourishment, joy, and peace that comes from meeting with him every day.

    15 Days of Prayer with Dietrich Bonhoeffer

    , , ,
    Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Lutheran pastor, theologian, opponent of Hitler, and martyr, stands as one of the boldest examples of twentieth century Christian witness. By the time that the Gestapo hanged him in Flossenberg Concentration Camp for involvement in a plot to assassinate Hitler, Bonhoeffer had marked out not only a firm Christian defence of the rights of God's ancient people, the Jews, but had sketched out an undogmatic Christianity for 'a world come of age.' The essence of this Christian vision was the belief that God is always present in Christ and always present in suffering. In a twenty-first century when trivial quarrels can still divide Christians, Bonhoeffer's witness to this core gospel truth, and his willingness to die for it, offer an enduring example. This book offers a fifteen day course in Bonhoeffer's spirituality, drawing abundantly from his writings. This is one of several books we stock in the "15 Days of Prayer" series,  providing direction from foundational spiritual figures. Each volume in the series contains: * A brief biography of the saint or spiritual leader introduced in that volume, a guide to creating a format for prayer and retreat, 15 meditations sessions with focus points and reflection guides.

    15 Days of Prayer with Saint Clare of Assisi

    , , ,
    To enter into a relationship with Clare of Assisi for fifteen days is to race along carried by the momentum of a woman burning with love. What a paradox: the cloister of Saint Damian - closed in upon itself - opens to the infinite. Clare, a pilgrim of the interior adventure, always re-directs her readers onto the road towards the Lord. The loving kenosis of Christ captivates her and incites her to a Passover, brisk as a dance step, on the path of happiness. The love that fills Clare with life springs forth like a fountain in her heart. This is one of several books we stock in the "15 Days of Prayer" series,  providing direction from foundational spiritual figures. Each volume in the series contains: * A brief biography of the saint or spiritual leader introduced in that volume, a guide to creating a format for prayer and retreat, 15 meditations sessions with focus points and reflection guides.

    Making All Things Well: finding spiritual strength with Julian of Norwich

    , ,
    The writings of Julian of Norwich are more popular and relevant than the 14th century mystic could ever have dreamed they would become. Speaking with freshness, depth and poignancy, they offer timeless wisdom and understanding for present day concerns. For Isobel de Gruchy, Julian was a great support during many difficult years of ministry in South Africa's apartheid era, but it was when her son died tragically in an accident that she found unexpected reserves of spiritual insight and strength. Making All Things Well opens up Julian's central themes - such as the mystery of suffering, the promise that we shall overcome evil, prayer and contemplation, the faithfulness and love of God towards all he has made - and relates them to the many challenges we encounter today. Offering forty short reflections that demonstrate Julian's abiding influence, it is ideal for personal reading during Lent, or at any time of year, for a retreat, for group reflection and as a worship resource. Each contains a scripture reading, an excerpt from her Showings, a meditation, a prayer-poem and questions for reflection.

    The Gospel in the Willows: Forty meditations inspired by The Wind in the Willows

    The Gospel in the Willows comprises 40 daily readings and meditations which may be used through Lent or any other period of the year.

    'Leslie Francis has achieved a most original and enchanting book by drawing out the wisdom embedded in Kenneth Grahame's classic, The Wind in the Willows, and weaving it into a profoundly Christian pattern which glows with spiritual truths simply expressed.

     

    This journey along the river of life with Ratty and Mole is indeed a revelation – for Jesus is their fellow-traveller in the meditations and prayers which Professor Francis has so skilfully crafted. To fuse the New Testament with an Edwardian novel in this way is not only to take a magnificently bold creative step but also to illustrate yet again that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.  Susan Howatch
