    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.'

    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.

    Chrysalis: Faith in an Emerging Culture

    ,
    Have you ever felt that the very things that once inspired and nurtured your faith now seem lifeless and perhaps even frustrating? Christians often find their faith metamorphosing and do not know how to handle the troubling changes. Using the life cycle of a butterfly as a metaphor Alan Jamieson helps readers to see that radical changes need not mean the death of personal faith. Instead he helps us to embrace them as part of a positive, Christian, Spirit-led journey with God.

    The Divine Embrace: Recovering the Passionate Spiritual Life

    , ,
    One of the most popular current views on spirituality is that there are varied paths to God. In this new Ancient-Future series book, Bob Webber evaluates this common misunderstanding of spirituality as separated from God's story, extremely self-focused, and shaped by our surrounding culture. This challenging work offers a corrective, calling us to an alternative Christian spirituality, one that reveals two sides-that of God's "divine embrace" of us and our passionate response. The Divine Embrace is a fresh, grounded look at true spirituality that will be embraced by pastors, thinking Christians, and anyone looking for an engaging and thorough treatment of this topic.

    Good Goats: Healing our Image of God

    ,
    This is an illustrated book by Matthew Linn, Sheila Fabricant Linn and Dennis Linn. They describe it as follows:'We become like the God we adore. Thus, one of the easiest ways to heal ourselves and our society is to heal our image of God, so that we know a God who loves us at least as much as those who love us the most. Discusses whether God throws us into hell or otherwise vengefully punishes us, and the role of free will. Includes a questions and answer section that gives theological and scriptural foundation for the main text.'
