    Hineni : In Imitation of Abraham

    , ,
    How do you encounter the mystery of the other? This is the central question at the heart of spiritual direction and central to the human quest. Hineni presence is not an answer to the mystery but a response to the challenge. At a time when people on the edges of religion increasingly seek out spiritual direction as a way of confronting life's unanswerable questions, hineni indicates a fundamental reality beyond labels. And in an age that seems to suffer from disconnection, hineni indicates a way in. A helpful resource for anyone interested in spirituality beyond easy answers or (in)convenient labels, Hineni: In Imitation of Abraham is a stark exploration of what it truly means to be present to yourself, to the one before you, and to the one we call God.

    Acquainted with the Night: An Exploration of Spirituality and Depression

    , , ,
    Depression is pandemic today; as the demands of modern life prove too much for many adults, it has also clawed its way into the minds and souls of our young people, so that it is not unusual to hear that teenagers, or even children, are taking anti-depressants, sometimes committing suicide. The aim of this book is to illustrate that depression is often a spiritual malaise that can be "treated" by spiritual measures. Award-winning author, Robert Waldron explores the common causes and symptoms of depression, and in so doing underscores the Socratic ideal of "the unexamined life is not worth living." When depressives take their depression seriously, they see that they are living superficially and understand that there is a deeper kind of living available: it is this realization that leads them into a spiritual dimension. Indeed the cure for much depression lies within the Christian message of mercy, forgiveness, compassion, acceptance and love. Using Jungian theory on spirituality as a foundation, Acquainted With The Night goes on to explore the scrutiny and expression famous Christians have given to their individual acquaintance and struggle with darkness, these include: Gerard Manley Hopkins, T.S. Eliot, Henri Nouwen, Philip Toynbee, Thomas Merton, Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and Loran Hurnscot.

    The Other Side of Chaos : Breaking through when life is breaking down

    , , , ,
    Your children have left home, you have lost your job, you have had to move to a strange town, your partner has died ... Every life is filled with changes and transitions. In The Other Side of Chaos, the popular writer and speaker Margaret Silf takes us on a journey through the pitfalls and the opportunities of change. Transitions may be awkward and uncomfortable, but they also put into places where new life can flourish. Silf invites us to embrace the inevitability of upheaval, and shows us how the leaving of our comfort zone can become an invitation to set ourselves free. Through stories and examples and down-to earth tips, she shows us how we can live our transitions constructively and creatively. `We will discover what new growth may be sprouting in our lives only if we risk the journey that takes us, like reluctant time travellers, hurtling through the uncharted universe of change.'

    Introducing Spiritual Direction

    ,
    This clear and practical guide to what happens in spiritual direction throws valuable light on something that is a huge help for many, yet sometimes seems a little unnerving for those considering it. It includes a number of first-person accounts - from spiritual directors and from those they have guided. It provides insight into why individuals seek direction, how they are guided (for example in the business of prayer), and what it is like to be in a relationship of spiritual direction. The book offers an all-round picture of the process, and will be of particular interest to those wondering whether to seek a spiritual director. "Reflecting on wide experience, Peter Ball offers us a book full of practical wisdom. It will serve as a fine introduction to spiritual direction but will also be read with profit by those of long experience. Clearly written, it is profound in its teaching and implication.

    Using the Bible in Spiritual Direction

    , ,
    'An invaluable travelling companion for anyone engaged in spiritual direction. The book affirms in an enlightening and interesting way the indispensable place of the Bible in listening, discerning and journeying with another person. A really helpful guide that explores the relationship of Scripture to issues of spiritual formation, mystery, life, faith, spirituality and the spiritual disciplines'.

    Roy Searle, Northumbria  Community.

    'This is the authentic voice of a spiritual guide who is widely read, deeply thoughtful and richly experienced. All this comes together in a book which is both wise and generous and, most valuably of all, roots the increasingly important practice of spiritual direction in the core Christian text of the Bible. This is the book we have needed for a long time.'

    John Pritchard, author and former Bishop of Oxford.

Though he counseled many people during his lifetime, his principles of spiritual direction were never written down. Now two of his longtime students, Michael Christensen and Rebecca Laird, have taken his famous course in spiritual direction and supplemented it with his unpublished writings to create the definitive work on Nouwen’s thoughts about the Christian life.
