    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.

    God Lost and Found

    , ,
    When you dig a bit below the surface, you are likely to discover that many of us who attend church regularly feel we have lost touch with a living experience of God. Indeed, we may find we no longer believe in God at all. The reasons why faith breaks down are multi-layered and complex, and this sympathetic volume has been written for those who aren't satisfied with pious answers to real questions and disappointments. John Pritchard draws deeply on his own experience of dark times in order to shed light on what we may be going through ourselves. He then offers starting points from which we might rediscover and re-imagine a more realistic faith in the God who, despite appearances, is ever present with us, whether apprehended or not.

    The Recovery of Hope: Bible reflections for sensing God’s presence and hearing God’s call

    , ,
    We live in the hope of experiencing first-hand the all-sufficient grace, love and forgiveness which are God's alone, a hope that we may know with our heads long before we feel it in our hearts. Such hope may mean encountering God as consoling presence in the darkness, as well as one who challenges us to respond to his call. That call may prove to be costly but, in responding, we are transformed by discovering and rediscovering that we are known exactly as we are, yet still loved beyond understanding, as God's precious children. In a series of Bible reflections - and some poems - this hope is explored in different ways, from the yearning of the psalmist to walking the gentle journey of the Good Shepherd's leading.

    Timeless Beauty: in the arts and everyday life

    , , ,
    Once people were instinctively tuned to the beautiful. In those distant days before the advent of the motor car and the washing machine, the electric toothbrush and the wheel, craftsmen and musicians, masons and poets, painters and dancers simply did not know how to make an ugly thing; they could not close their hearts to the light of heaven. For them countless numbers of them beauty was as necessary as the air they breathed. It gave dignity and meaning to drab and impoverished lives, and inspired great (but often brutal) civilizations in which people lived creative and useful lives. Beauty is the nourishment of the soul. It is something that gives us dignity as a species. John Lane calls us to awaken to the possibilities of a culture that recognizes the importance of beauty, and to acknowledge that we are only fully human in contact with the beautiful.

    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.

    Things Hidden: scripture as spirituality

    , ,
    Only when the two come together, inner and outer authority, do we have true spiritual wisdom. We have for too long insisted on outer authority alone, without any teaching of prayer, inner journey and maturing consciousness. The results for the world and for religion have been disastrous ...I offer these reflections to again unite what should never have been separated: sacred Scripture and Christian spirituality.' From the introduction In this exploration of central themes of Scripture, Richard Rohr transforms the written word, discovering in these ancient texts a new and vital meaning, relevant and essential for modern Christians. He uncovers what the Bible says about morality, power, wisdom and the generosity of God in a manner that demands a life-changing response from believers. Rohr offers his readers a Christian vision of abundance, grace and joy to counteract a world filled with scarcity, judgement and fear-a vision that can revolutionize how we relate to ourselves, others and the world.

    ,
    Like the seasons themselves, our lives are variable and can change in a moment.

What can we learn, and how can we be encouraged in each season of our lives? This book will empower you to discover for yourself the truths and messages of scripture, and might well change the way you view life's changes.

    At Sea With God

    ,
      At Sea With God cleverly considers the notion of seafaring as a model for our spiritual journey and invites us to leave the safety of the boatyard for the uncertainty and risk of a voyage across uncharted waters to a mysterious destination. Drawing on seven vivid images, At Sea with God casts a beautiful new light on: The vessels that carry each of us through a lifetime of events Cargo, which has the potential to sustain us or to weigh us down The process of setting sail for unfamiliar destinations Navigating uncharted waters, even when the best path is difficult to discern Taming fear during storms and shipwrecks Rejoicing in the serenity of calm seas and dealing with the times when we feel we are going nowhere Choosing the best time and place to drop anchor Written in gentle prose reminiscent of Henri Nouwen's and C. S. Lewis's, At Sea with God offers a short course in strengthening the soul using meditative tradition. For Christians of all denominations, Margaret Silf has created a safe harbour to savour again and again.

    Speaking of Sin

    ,
    In Speaking of Sin, Barbara Brown Taylor brings her fresh perspective to words that often cause us discomfort and have widely fallen into neglect: sin, damnation, repentance, penance, and salvation. Asking why we should speak of sin at all, she argues that abandoning words will not make sin go away, and that alienation, deformation, damnation and death will continue no matter what we call them. Abandoning the language will simply leave us speechless before them, and increase our denial of their presence in our lives. Ironically, it will also weaken the language of grace, since the full impact of forgiveness cannot be felt apart from the full impact of what has been forgiven. Contrary to the prevailing view, Taylor calls sin “a helpful, hopeful word.” Naming our sins, she contends, enables us to move from guilt to grace. In recovering this lost language of salvation in our worship and in the fabric of our individual lives, we have an opportunity to take part in the divine work of redemption.

    The Spiritual Life

    Originally part of a series of broadcasts made by the author prior to the Second World War, this small book was meant "to present some of the great truths concerning man's spiritual life in simple language".  As one critic noted, "Underhill has admirably and eloquently acheived her objective".   Evelyn Underhill was a prolific British writer on mysticism and spiritual growth, and her books are as relevant today as when written; containing both divine insight and practical reality.
