    Revolution of Character

    Discovering Christ’s Pattern for Spiritual Transformation by Dallas Willard and Don Simpson Dallas Willard’s Renovation of the Heart has become established as a classic guide to the spiritual life. In this abridged version, Don Simpson makes its riches more easily available for devotional use. The authors believe that we fail in the spiritual life mainly through neglect of the roles played by the various elements of our personality. They reflect on each of these elements – heart, mind, body, social life and soul – and invite us to understand its role, train it in new patterns, and expose it to God’s transforming power. This holistic approach will, they suggest, produce new ways of responding to life, and will result in profoundly changed character. The accessible distillation of an award-winning work can be read as an ordinary book, or used for personal study and prayer or on retreat. Suggestions for meditation and response appear at the end of each chapter.

    Timeless Simplicity: Creative living in a consumer society

    ,
    This is a book about simplicity - not destitution, not parsimoniousness, not self-denial - but the restoration of wealth in the midst of an affluence in which we are starving the spirit. It is a book about the advantages of living a less cluttered, stressful life than that which many of us are now living in the overcrowded and manic-paced consuming nations. It is a book that has nothing to do with subsistence living on the Lake Isle of Innisfree, but everything to do with having less and enjoying more - enjoying time to do the work you love, enjoying time to spend with your family, enjoying time to pursue creative projects, enjoying time for good eating, enjoying time just to be. Another theme of the book concerns the future of our home, the Earth. Up to the end of the 19th century, the Earth consisted of a world of oceans and land masses teeming with all kinds of life, but our grandchildren will inherit one with less than 20 percent of its original forests still intact, with most of the readily available fresh water already spoken for, with most of the wetlands and reef systems either destroyed or degraded. Sooner or later a more frugal lifestyle will not only be desirable - it will become an imperative.

    Thoughts Matter: discovering the spiritual journey

    , ,
    Cassian taught that real intimacy with God in prayer must include renouncing the thoughts belonging to our former way of life. In Thoughts Matter, Sr. Meg Funk instructs readers on how effectively to overcome these thoughts and to focus instead on thoughts in harmony with God’s will. The result is an experience of joy, hope, and freedom from enslavement to our appetites. Readers will come away enlightened, strengthened, and inspired to delve more deeply into a life of intimacy with God.

    Franciscan Spirituality: Following St Francis Today

    ,
    What is special about the spirituality of St Francis? Can it be possible for ordinary men and women today, with family, jobs, and other responsibilities, to follow in the way of a thirteenth-century friar? Brother Ramon, an Anglican Franciscan Friar, shows us that Franciscan spirituality is as compelling and relevant today as ever. It is marked by spontaneity and emotional freedom, by openness to every human being and love for the natural world. It treasures both the evangelical and the catholic nature of the gospel. It is rooted in a biblical faith and in reverence for the whole of creation. Franciscan Spirituality introduces us to the world of Francis and his first followers and shows how their excitement and wonder at Jesus alive in their midst can still be recaptured. The book is illustrated throughout by Molly Dowell

    Finding our Way Again: The Return of the Ancient Practices

    ,
    'Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.' Jeremiah 6:16 Most of us suffer from spiritual disorientation. Our souls are untended. And in this fragmented world, a soul left untended quickly loses direction. It forgets itself and becomes an insubstantial thing, disoriented and unavailable to the truth. And neither scientific secularism nor religious fundamentalism nor vague spiritualities have been able to offer any real answers. That's why a growing number of Christians are turning to early spiritual practices as a means of tending their souls. For centuries, believers have eagerly submitted to disciplines such as fixed-hour prayer, fasting, sacred meals, observing the Sabbath, or pilgrimage to create everyday sacredness, a spiritual rhythm for living within the well-worn grooves of a workaday life. In Finding Our Way Again, Brian McLaren serves as guide to a wide variety of these disciplines, showing how they form character, awaken us to life, and help us to experience God, and each other, in new and fresh ways.

    The Heart of Creation: Meditation: a way of setting God free in the world

    , ,
    In the spirituality of the desert fathers and mothers, the Benedictine monk, John Main, discovered a tradition of contemplative prayer he believed could re-energise the Church in prayer and restore its capacity to communicate a sense of wonder at the heart of creation. In his teachings on prayer, the contemplative power of early Christianity, which for centuries has been diverted to dogmatic issues and institutional structures, is once again released. The contemplative experience is simply pure attention to God in the present moment. A way of prayer that is totally simple, it invites you to set aside your own thoughts, feelings and perceptions and to let God be God. In silent contemplation, relating to God becomes more than thought, dialogue or contractualy bargaining. Instead of questioning, we awaken to the basic relationship of life which determines all other relationships, with others and with ourselves. In a busy and frenetic world, it enables us to discover redemptive, healing silence.

    Leaving Church: A Memoir of Faith

    , , ,
    In the words of Frederick Buechner: 'This beautiful book is rich with wit and humanness and honesty and loving detail. It is a book about the wonderful mess of being alive in this world, and about the wonderful and terrible things that happen to us in it, and about the dream of God. I cannot overstate how liberating and transforming I have founs Leaving Church to be.'

    The Divine Conspiracy: rediscovering our hidden life in God

    ,
    The Divine Conspiracy is the bestselling guide to the true meaning of Christian discipleship. Gracefully weaving biblical teaching, popular culture, science and scholarship together, Dallas Willard refuted the view that Christianity is solely about gaining admittance to heaven when we die, and taught that, as disciples, we have access now to the life of the kingdom. Equally relevant today as it was on its first publication, The Divine Conspiracy challenges us to step aside from the pieties of contemporary Christian practice and offers instead a practical plan by which we can become Christ-like. Truly, it has earned its reputation as a modern Christian classic.

    God Doesn’t Do Waste: Redeeming the Whole of Life

    ,
    Meet 'the Bookless Bunch', a very ordinary family who went green. When God challenged him over his attitude to the environment, Dave Bookless did a total rethink. This led to major changes, not only in his family's lifestyle but also eventually in his career: full time involvement in the global A Rocha movement that aims to care for God's fragile world. But in one sense this book isn't about going green at all. It's a personal account of a life lived in relationship. It's about roots and belonging, suffering and healing, identity and meaning, faith and doubt. It's about how in God's economy nothing need be wasted. It's about the messiness that each human being wades through in every area of life, and about a God who can take all that seems most wasteful and useless, and recycle it into something of infinite worth.
