    In Celebration of Simplicity: The Joy of Living Lightly

    ,
    Our spiritual growth has been stifled by our long obsession with consumption and possessions. This practical yet visionary book offers a model for a truly healthy life based on gospel simplicity. Ditch the study that gets in the way, and your heart is free to respond to God. 'What is in these pages works,' says Penelope Wilcock. 'It's the medicine for today, it transforms life. It's the part of the Bible that shouts off every page but is silenced before it ever gets to church.' Christian simplicity affects our management of time, money, possessions, speech, what we do, eat, and hear, our relationships, resources, homes, transport, the way we dress. It requires discipline, especially at the outset. 'But as we journey, a wonderful sense of freedom permeates our lives; the light heart that is necessary to walk gracefully in Christ's way.'

    Love Unknown

    Ruth Burrows believes that many people, even regular churchgoers, miss the true meaning and joy of Christianity. God longs for us to know him as our Saviour, so that he can bring us to share in his own Trinitarian life and love. In successive chapters Burrows traces how God reveals himself to us through our personal lives, particularly our experiences of weakness and failure; through history and the natural world; through the Scriptures; and above all, through his beloved Son Jesus. Encountering the living and true God revealed in Jesus Christ challenges us to face our own truth, and so sets us free to receive the boundless love, the joy, fulfilment, and holiness for which we were made. Then we shall 'sing a song we have never sung before'.

    Life of the Beloved and Our Greatest Gift

    ,
    The real 'work' of prayer is to become silent and listen to the voice that says good things about me. The late Henri Nouwen was one of the twentieth century's greatest spiritual writers, and this book brings together two of his most inspirational pastoral works, reissued to mark the twentieth anniversary of his death. Life of the Beloved asks how one can live a spiritual life in a completely secular culture. The greatest challenge, concludes Nouwen, is to bridge the gap between secular and sacred within the human self as a human being beloved of God. Our Greatest Gift is a mediation on dying. Dying and death can often bring fear, but the experience of dying and caring for the dying can become the deepest experience of love. Now encourages us to ask, 'How can my death become fruitful in the loves of others?'. Ultimately, it is the greatest gift we have to offer.

    Lost in Wonder: Rediscovering the Spiritual Art of Attentiveness

    ,
    'To take time to be apart ... is not a luxury, it is essential. The gift of space for myself seems so simple, and in a way it is; but it is also surprisingly difficult to do without some form of external encouragement. And that is the very simple purpose of this book.' With these words, Ester de Waal begins to show us ways into a fuller and deeper sense of attentiveness to the world around us and to the presence of God in that world. As she observes, 'if we fail to find the time to stand back, to give ourselves a break, a breathing space we are in danger of failing to be fully alive, or to enjoy that fullness of life for which we were created.' Many aspects of modern life can distract us: busyness, boredom, stress, lethargy, lack of direction. Yet Christ's invitation to each of us is, 'Come and see'. Responding to this call, Lost in Wonder clears and refreshes our inner vision, teaching us again how to use those gifts we may have come to take for granted or forgotten we had: sight, sound, silence, awareness, mystery, wonder.

    Every Place is Holy Ground: Making a pilgrimage through everyday places

    ,
    In Every Place is Holy Ground, Sally Welch opens our eyes and our senses to places we may already think we know well: our own homes, local churches and the community where we live. We discover that even the most familiar surroundings can become places of sacred encounter as we learn to see them as though we were pilgrims on a journey. This practical guidebook helps us enter those spaces as never before, with fresh awareness of their potential to bring us into the presence of God. Guided meditations using stories, symbols, reflections and prayers are provided for prayer journeys inspired by everyday sights. They trace the pattern of traditional pilgrimages to far-off holy places and reflect both the joys and trials of such journeys: encouraging, challenging, questioning and stretching us so that we may cultivate a richer sense of being fully alive in the present moment. Every Place is Holy Ground will enable us to see our everyday surroundings with eyes alert to the signs of God's glory in creation and to the blessings to be found on our own doorsteps. The adventure of pilgrimage changes people. As Bishop John Pritchard writes in the foreword, 'Even if we are taking the route of pilgrimage in our own home, we will find that we have travelled far and thought deep ... And through it all we will also get to know better the Good Companion who travels with us every step of the journey, the Lord of the Pilgrimage, God himself.'

    Echo of the Soul: The Sacredness of the Human Body

    , ,
    What does it mean to be made 'in the image and likeness of God'? This is the first and defining characteristic of our humanity celebrated in the opening pages of the Bible. Its subsequent record is of the struggle between good and evil in human life, a tension that we face daily within ourselves and in the relationships of our lives. Western Christian tradition has often given the impression, and sometimes explicitly taught that this tension is primarily between the soul and the body. The result has been a denigration of the human body and distrust of our deepest physical desires. We no longer recognise within ourselves the characteristics of the divine image. Yet written into the vey fabric of our being in the mystery, wisdom, strength, beauty, creativity, eternity and presence of God. This profound and challenging book clears away centuries of misunderstanding, confusion and shame that have damaged our self-perception. Drawing on both Jewish and Celtic Christian sources of spirituality, Philip Newell leads us to discover the sacredness of our souls and our bodies. Our present day assumptions about love, beauty, sexuality and worth are transformed by this truly ground-breaking book.

    Christ in the Wilderness: Reflecting on the Paintings by Stanley Spencer

    , ,
    The remarkable English painter Stanley Spencer produced a series of works entitled Christ in the Wilderness (1939-54), portraying the forty days Jesus spent in the wilderness. These beautiful and compelling images give us a startling insight into Jesus' vocation and his own understanding of his ministry. They show his great love for nature and affinity with all creation. Stephen Cottrell reflects on five of the Christ in the Wilderness paintings, and reveals them to be a rich source of spiritual wisdom and nourishment. He invites us to slow down and enter into the stillness of Stanley Spencer's vision. By dwelling in the wilderness of these evocative portraits, Stephen Cottrell encourages us to refine our own discipleship and learn again what it means to follow Christ.

    The Way of a Pilgrim and The Pilgrim Continues His Way

    ,
    Translated by R.M. French In The Way of a Pilgrim, an unknown pilgrim describes his wanderings through mid-nineteenth-century Russia and Siberia, from one holy place to another in search of the ways of prayer. R. M. French’s superb translation conveys the charm of the original text and communicates brilliantly the spiritual truths of the gospel. In the much loved sequel, The Pilgrim Continues His Way, the narrator shares more of his story, as desire burns within him to discover deeper experiences of prayer, and to draw closer to the heart of God.

    Landmarks: An Ignatian Journey

    ,
    Landmarks help us to find ourselves when we think we are lost. When we don't know where to begin, they give us a starting point. When we thing we know where we are, they give us the confidence to keep going. And if we think we have arrived, they remind us that there is always something more, somewhere beyond... This is a book of landmarks to the heart's journey. Written out of the author's own prayer and lived experience, and inspired but her practical explorations of the insights of St Ignatius Loyola, it opens up questions which concern us all. How can we recognise God's ceaseless action in our lives and begin to discern His will? What does 'fallenness' mean for us today? How can we live true to ourselves and make decisions in freedom? How do we penetrate our deepest desires and become free of the lesser attachments that obstruct them? Big questions - but as Margaret Silf shows, there are clues to be discovered in every moment and situation: at home, at work, in the garden, in the market, in the bath! Landmarks will help us discover and deepen our own individual journeys. Written for both groups and individuals, it is illustrated with drawings and diagrams, and contains exercises and suggestions for prayer and reflection. Be warned, however. Landmarks are not for armchair pilgrims. They are for the People of the Way.
