Vanishing Colors
ISBN-10: 0802855180
ISBN-13: 9780802855183
Publisher: Wm Eerdmans
Price: AU$35.95
Description: As a young girl and her mother take shelter for the night in their war-torn city, the whole world appears muted and dark. When the girl wakes in the middle of the night to find a bird watching her, she knows it's the one from her mother's stories, who flies down from the mountains to protect people from harm.

She tells the bird what her life used to be like, before the war and destruction. She describes her favorite dress, the open market stalls, her dad playing music on the roof. As she continues to remember, colors slowly seep back into her life, and with them comes the courage to hope for a new beginning.

Dreaming of Stones: Poems
ISBN-10: 1640601082
ISBN-13: 9781640601086
Publisher: Paraclete Press
Price: AU$29.99
Description: The poems in Dreaming of Stones are about what endures: hope and desire, changing seasons, wild places, love, and the wisdom of mystics. Inspired by the poet's time living in Ireland these readings invite you into deeper ways of seeing the world. They have an incantational quality. Drawing on her commitment as a Benedictine oblate, the poems arise out of a practice of sitting in silence and lectio divina, in which life becomes the holy text.

No stranger to poetry, Paintner's bestselling spirituality titles have often included poems. In this first exclusively poetic collection, she writes with a contemplative heart about kinship with nature, ancestral connections, intimacy, the landscape, the unfolding nature of time, and Christian mystics. It can be read for reflection to spark the heart and to offer solace and inspiration in difficult times.

Compassionate Christ, Compassionate People: Liturgical Foundations of Christian Spirituality
Author/Artist: HURD, BOB
ISBN-10: 0814684629
ISBN-13: 9780814684627
Publisher: Liturgical Press
Price: AU$42.95
Description: Spirituality is a motion, a responsive movement of heart, mind, and spirit to the life of God moving within us. Starting from his Roman Catholic roots but working ecumenically, Bob Hurd explores this notion of spirituality in two parts. Part 1 places it in the theological framework of Creation-Grace-Incarnation, concluding that its specific form is participation in Christ's self-emptying love of God, humankind, and creation. Part 2 investigates this kenotic spirituality liturgically, exploring how it comes to expression in the ritual stages of Gathering, Word, Eucharistic Prayer, Communion, and Sending. Comparing and contrasting each stage with corresponding patterns in various Protestant traditions, Hurd lays out the possibility of a spirituality common to Christians of various confessions.

"Here is your opportunity to enter the fruitful mind of this faithful Christian. You will explore not only the workings of worship but also the God whom worship encounters. Hurd's book will help you appreciate why his music so powerfully draws you into Christian prayer." Fr Paul Turner

John: An Earth Bible Commentary, Supposing Him to be the Gardener
ISBN-10: 0567686450
ISBN-13: 9780567686459
Publisher: T & T Clark
Price: AU$39.95
Description: This volume in the Earth Bible Commentary Series suggests how John 's Gospel might motivate and resource a Christian response to the ecological crisis. Margaret Daly-Denton shows how aptly Mary Magdalene recognized the risen Jesus as the gardener (Jn 20.15), completing his day's work in the garden of the Earth. The Johannine story of Jesus offers his present day followers a paradigm with considerable potential to inspire Earth care, sustainable living and commitment to eco-justice.

The Fourth Evangelist believes that Jesus fulfils the Jewish hope for a restoration envisaged as a return of humankind to Eden. Keeping this theme continually in mind, Daly-Denton reads the gospel with sensitivity to the role of the more-than-human world in the narrative and with particular attention to the scriptural underlay that repeatedly brings this world into the foreground. The commentary begins with an exploration of the memories and associations that the garden setting would have evoked for the intended audience. It then follows the gospel's spiral path that eventually leads to the garden of Mary's encounter. Each chapter concludes by asking how believers might do God's work (Jn 6.28) in today 's ecologically damaged world and by offering practical suggestions indicative of the reflection that readers of the commentary will be able to do in their own setting.

ISBN-10: 1506450563
ISBN-13: 9781506450568
Publisher: Fortress Press
Price: AU$34.95
Description: St. Hildegard of Bingen was a visionary mystic, a spiritual leader, and a woman ahead of her time. Whether you love St. Hildegard or are encountering her for the first time, this journey provides a way to engage the thought of a compelling twelfth-century saint. Hers is an example of extraordinary leadership. She was a woman who embraced her time and yet can properly be called a woman ahead of her time. Her ecological message, which reflects a deep respect for the sanctity of the environment and the interconnectedness of all creation, has much to teach us regarding our divinely ordered place within the cosmos.

Her letters give us a unique glimpse into her personality and complex thought. May they be a source of inspiration to her readers during this thirty-day journey.

God Plays a Purple Banjo and 41 Stories of Inspiration, Hope and Humor
Author/Artist: MEYER, S JAMES
ISBN-10: 1627854428
ISBN-13: 9781627854429
Publisher: Twenty Third Pub
Price: AU$29.95
Description: This refreshing, delightfully written, and deeply personal book provides the answer to the age-old question, “Where is God?” Everywhere, says S. James Meyer, homeless advocate, business owner, permanent deacon, husband, father, and son of a carpenter. Each of the stories here uses the stuff of everyday life to remind us that every breath we take is an encounter with God, and that there is no moment in our lives that is not sacred. Whether talking about a hike with his son, a cherished family traditional recipe, his father’s work, or the Eucharist, Meyer makes it clear that all of life is a deeply holy adventure, one to be embraced in all its human frailty, a frailty that only brings us closer to God.
