    Becoming a Disciple

    In this little book Daniel Bourguet guides our meditations on three scriptural passages that lead the reader along the pathway ordained by Christ into the depths of his being. Successively, the disciple first follows behind Jesus along the way of perfect love (Mark 1:14-20); then experiences what it is to bear the yoke with Christ and there find rest (Matt 11:28-30); and finally enters the mystery of communion in which he is in Jesus and Jesus abides in him (John 15:1-17). It is a pathway passing from vocation to struggle and then to fellowship, but leading always to joy.  In Becoming a Disciple, we see the fruit of Bourget's years of intercession, spiritual direction, and insightful exegesis--all of this at the feet of Christ. Here we see how the Gospels lead us into intimate encounters and authentic discipleship

    Befriending Our Desires

    , , , ,
    Desire is at the heart of what it is to be human. The power of desire, while embodied and sensuous, is God-given and the key to all human spirituality. Humanity is blessed with a deep longing that is infinite in extent and can only ultimately be satisfied in God. Befriending Our Desires portrays the intimate connection between desire and the spiritual journey. Drawing on Hebrew and Christian Scriptures, Christian spiritual classics (with some reference to Buddhist spirituality), poetry, and other literature, plus personal and pastoral experience, Philip Sheldrake explores the role of desire in relation to God, prayer, sexuality, making choices, and responding to change.

    Bread of Angels

    ,
    As the Israelites received the bread of angels― manna―as they made their way through the wilderness, so too is God made known to us in the simple things that sustain our lives. With humour and an eye for human stubbornness, Barbara Brown Taylor reflects on moments of divine providence and encounter in the Bible, from the stories of Moses, David, and Daniel to the Book of Acts. Along the way, she explores with honesty and grace the questions that we all ask about whether God answers prayer, whether miracles happen, and how we recognise God in the unexpected. As enjoyable as they are profound, her meditations on the life of faith and the cost of discipleship will inspire preachers and delight readers.

    Candle Walk: a bedtime prayer to God

    ,
    A child's introduction to Compline - Share the beauty of nature and bedtime prayer with a special child. In this bedtime book, join in a candlelit wander through the woods, listening attentively to the river, trees, stars, and moths singing verses from scripture. This beautifully illustrated picture book invites families to enter into a calm, contemplative quieting-down based on a centuries-old practice of evening prayer from the Christian liturgical tradition. Like the beloved Office of Compline, the book helps children "complete" their day and prepare for sleep, fulfilling a hunger for a bedtime prayer that is not simply intercessory, but offers an opportunity to practice listening and contemplation. Appropriate for toddlers and school-children alike, Candle Walk is a wonderful way to prepare children for sleep, assured of the nearness of God.

    Divine Sparks

    , ,
    Many of our everyday encounters in the world are touched by the divine, if we were only aware of it. We may find it impossible to miss God in the great interruptions of human existence, but God often finds a humbler, dwelling-place ...The author was in a packed underground carriage when it was taken siege by a group of musicians ripe to start a ceilidh. The interruption - the eruption - into dull passivity of joy seemed a herald of the Kingdom of God. And so she began to write a series of 35 reflections, some prosaic, others more poetic in tone, that open up ways of seeing light in darkness; love in places of desolation; in-breaking life when all seems tired and old. Each reflection ends with questions for individual reflection or group discussion, and a prayer to help us embrace the mystical in everything we encounter.

    Enriching Our Vision of Reality: theology and the natural sciences in dialogue

    ,
    In this exceptional volume, Alister McGrath writes for scientists with an interest in theology, and Christians and theologians who are aware of the importance of the natural sciences. A scene-setting chapter explores the importance of the human quest for intelligibility. The focus then moves to three leading figures who have stimulated discussion about the relation of science and theology in recent years: Charles Coulson, an Oxford professor of theoretical chemistry who was also a prominent Methodist lay preacher; Ian Ramsey, sometime Bishop of Durham; and John Polkinghorne, theoretical physicist, theologian and Anglican priest. The latter part of the book features six parallel conversations between science and theology, which lay the groundwork for the kind of enriched vision of reality the author hopes to encourage. Here, we are inspired to enjoy individual aspects of nature while seeking to interpret these in the light of deeper revelations about our gloriously strange universe.

    Finding Silence: 52 Meditations for Daily Living

    , ,
    James Roose-Evans' list of accomplishments is formidable. Fifty years ago he founded the Hampstead Theatre. Thirty-five years ago he set up the Bleddfa Centre for the Creative Spirit. He has written seventeen books and directed countless plays, including the award-winning adaptation of 84 Charing Cross Road. He is an ordained, non-stipendiary Anglican priest and continues to direct, to teach, to write – and to meditate. Finding Silence grows out of the work of a group he leads in London which meets regularly for meditation. It is one of many hundreds of such groups today, gathering in one another's houses, transcending all differences of religion, colour, race, gender, as people increasingly seek a deeper meaning to their lives. James' first book on meditation, Inner Journey: Outer Journey went into three editions and led to his being much in demand at workshops and retreats. Finding Silence is the result of numerous requests for him to compose a collection of practical but inspiring thoughts about meditation, creativity and spirituality.

    From Darkness to Light

    ,
    From Darkness to Light is a masterpiece of contemplative exegesis of the Bible. Daniel Bourguet takes the reader on a challenging, three-chapter pilgrimage exploring the mystery of three conversions: in the darkness at Jesus's death, in the cries of descent into the grave, and in the light at his garden resurrection. Bourguet interprets with precision and passion the story of the one thief's conversion on the cross as he witnesses Jesus's suffering love. His treatment of Heman's cry from the depths in Psalm 88 plumbs the depths of a biblical theology of the cross. His final chapter on Mary Magdalene's transformative encounter with Jesus in the garden is brilliant, inspiring more careful study, contemplative prayer, and adoration.
