    Wrestling with the Word : Preaching on Tricky Texts

    Many biblical texts seem almost impossible to preach. They may be violent or terrifying or strange or abrasive. They may deal with matters simply beyond human experience. The preacher could well be tempted to choose an easier text on offer! But leaving taxing passages untouched means the Bible is effectively silenced. In Wrestling with the Word, well-known and accomplished preachers grapple with a range of notoriously difficult biblical Old and New Testament texts. As well as providing sample sermons - in an exhilarating variety of structural styles and voices - they offer ideas to help in the planning process of interpreting and applying such passages.

    The Vicar’s Secret Wallpaper: Moments, Meanderings and Meaning In Christian Ministry

Each story is accompanied by a theological reflection designed both to inform & to stimulate, the reader's own thoughts. It is particularly recommended for: * those seeking encouragement & inspiration in their own Christian pilgrimage * ministers & would-be ministers, of any Christian tradition * churchwardens and similar officers * any who would like to understand their clergy/ministers a little better. Called away from a white-coated scientific career, the author describes happy, sad, surreal & divine encounters in parish life, largely outside the confines of the church. It reflects on experience in hospital, housing estate, commuter belt and rural settings, and tackles current issues, including aggressive atheism, same-sex marriage, and some worrying trends in today's church.

    Leading with Everything to Give : Lessons from the Success and Failure of Western Capitalism

    , ,
    Having looked at the personal character of an undefended leader in Leading out of Who You Are and at the pragmatics of wielding power in Leading with Nothing to Lose, Simon Walker next looks at the Politics - and economics - of undefended leadership. In this final volume of his leadership trilogy, The Undefended Leader, he analyses the crisis in social ecology in Western culture and its global repercussions. Walker offers a piercing analysis that sets the current economic problems within broader, deeper narrative of social dysfunction in the West. Sane, wide-ranging and acutely relevant in the chaos of the current crisis, his analysis offers a clear perspective and points to the future. This is a provocative book, and, in the light of current events, most timely. With study questions and practical ideas to help readers apply the undefended vision wherever they are. "I have come to see that idealism and pragmatism are not incompatible bedfellows - the grand and the noble and the humble and immediate are both necessary."

    Sustaining Leadership : You are more important than your ministry

    Many books on leadership and ministry are written from the point of view of success and strength. In Sustaining Leadership Paul Swann writes out of the raw experience of failure, getting to the heart of who we are as leaders rather than what we do. From this he offers both hope and practical resources for sustaining effective long-term ministry, looking at self-care, balance and healthy ministry, feasting on divine love, and more. As he says, this is the best gift we can offer those we serve.

    The Intercessions Resource Book

    Fresh ideas for public and private prayer from the author of The Intercessions Handbook and The Second Intercessions Handbook which have sold over 50,000 copies. Compelled by the belief that a large number of Christians want to come to God with others' needs, John Pritchard has created this follow-up to his hugely successful volumes, The Intercessions Handbook and The Second Intercessions Handbook. In a gentle, accessible, style he offers `starter' ideas and introductory material to help those who lead intercessions in public worship and small groups, and aims to open the reader's imagination to enrich their own style of praying. Everyday language, images and experiences are used in each of the three main sections. The first, looking at intercessions in mainstream worship, offers prayers* for each of the 12 months* for major festivals and their seasons* for special days like Mothering Sunday * on themes such as light, storms and fear.  The second section provides intercessions for use in informal worship and small groups, while the third, focusing on personal payers, includes a section for extroverts.
