    The Rites and Wrongs of Liturgy : Why Good Liturgy Matters

    ,
    We all want to celebrate the liturgy well, to experience good, uplifting, and meaningful worship. But what is the best route to follow? In The Rites and Wrongs of Liturgy, Thomas O’Loughlin offers a way forward that strengthens faith, builds up Christian community, and points toward a new direction based on liturgical principles that are rooted in our natures as ritual beings as well as in the gospel. The Rites and Wrongs of Liturgy explains why good liturgy is important, how to recognize it, and how to assess liturgy in terms of a larger vision of the Christian life. O’Loughlin, a seasoned theologian and teacher, identifies ten principles that make for good liturgy. Such liturgy must be honest, open, joyful, inclusive, celebrative of community, facilitative of engagement, based in creation, attentive to the marginalized, free of clutter, and true to the pattern of the incarnation. Since good celebrations build faith and bad liturgy weakens it, these principles promise to bring new life and meaning to every celebrating community.

    Speaking the Truth : Preaching in a diverse culture

    , ,
    `Truth' is a difficult subject in a pluralistic culture, and `the truth' is even more challenging. Yet the preacher's call is to be a speaker of truth - the truth of God in Jesus Christ. What does it take to speak the truth faithfully as a preacher of the gospel, for that truth to be heard, and for words and ideas to generate actions and build relationships? Samuel Wells has learned that speaking the truth means telling the Christian story alongside the contemporary secular story. It means helping your hearers perceive both the harmonies and the dissonance between the two. It means inviting them, with both conviction and humility, to decide how their own story is going to be shaped by this truth. In this volume, he reflects on the practice of speaking about God, faith, the Bible, discipleship, resurrection, salvation, politics and truth, and on preaching that resonates in particular contexts. It is a book to encourage and give confidence to all preachers, and preachers in training.

    Following Jesus: Finding Our Way Home in an Age of Anxiety

    ,
    At one of the lowest points in his life, Henri Nouwen gave a series of lectures on the importance of following Jesus in an age of anxiety. This new work from the archives of the Nouwen estate draws on those talks. It reveals the deep turmoil and sometimes chaotic inner life of the man who has become an icon of compassion and vulnerability for Christians and non-Christians alike. Nouwen writes eloquently about calling and purpose, fear and hope and explains why, with so many choices available to 21st century seekers - including atheism and secularism - the greatest reward for those looking for fulfilment is to choose belief in God. Along the way he offers warm, insightful, practical spiritual practices to help readers navigate the narrow, sometimes arduous, but ultimately fulfilling road of conviction and faith.

    What Do We Do With the Bible?

    , ,
    What do we do with the Bible? Does this ancient, sometimes violent and contradictory text have anything to teach us today? Selective use of Scripture - by preachers and politicians alike - has been employed to justify violence, racism, misogyny, homophobia . . .the list goes on. Still, we believe the Bible has something important to say. How can we read it in a contemplative and intelligent way? In "What do we do with the Bible?", Richard Rohr answers just this question. He offers a methodology of hermeneutics (interpretation) that creates a foundation for a hopeful and cosmic vision - incarnation from beginning to end of time. (He explores this vision further in The Universal Christ). In particular, Father Richard focuses on Jesus' own method of using his Hebrew Scriptures. Jesus read between the lines to find and follow God's mercy, inclusion, and compassionate justice. For him, everything came down to relationship and transformation.
