Living with the Gods: On Beliefs and Peoples
Category: Books > Theology > Theology Books
Author/Artist: MACGREGOR, NEIL
ISBN-10: 0241308291
ISBN-13: 9780241308295
Publisher: Allen Lane
Binding: HARDBACK
Price: AU$65.00
Description: No society on Earth lacks beliefs about where it has come from, its place in the world, and the connection of individuals to the eternal. Until recently, it was widely assumed that religion was on the wane almost everywhere: now, far from becoming marginalised, the relationship between faith and society has moved to the centre of politics and global conversation. Neil MacGregor's new book and radio series, and the parallel exhibition at the British Museum, trace how different societies have understood and articulated their place in the cosmic scheme.

He examines mankind's beliefs not from the perspective of institutional religions, but by focusing on the shared narratives that have shaped societies - and on what happens when different narratives run up against each other. MacGregor brilliantly turns his kaleidoscope of objects, monuments and ideas to set these pressing contemporary concerns in the long perspectives of time and place.

Description: Presenting clergy and chaplains with unique therapeutic tools for helping senior adults enrich their later years, this book gives advice on how to strengthen relationships, find meaning in life and feel comfortable approaching life's final chapter.

It guides clergy and chaplains through how to effectively conduct "Soul Legacy" projects, in which older people reflect on what they want to leave behind for their loved ones and how they want to be remembered after they die. It enables older people to pay loved ones personal tributes and show them how important they are. By focusing on others rather than the self, it provides comfort for loved ones as well as the senior adult, prevents loneliness and negative feelings about ageing, and helps adults gradually become comfortable with the challenges of approaching the end of life.

The purpose of these reflections is to reveal ‘the dearest freshness deep down things’, to disclose the secret of turning your life around and of living more freely and more abundantly. This revelation, this secret, is sometimes offered to us as a pure gift when we least expect it. At other times we must dig hard through the rubble of our lives before the stubborn gold surrenders itself.

Travelling Light: Your Journey to Wholeness REPRINT
Category: Books > Spirituality > Spirituality Books
Author/Artist: O'LEARY, DANIEL
ISBN-10: 1925073742
ISBN-13: 9781925073744
Publisher: John Garratt Publishing
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$24.95
Description: There are two questions to ask yourself. Do you feel a call to deepen your life, to live more freely, to be more happy? And the second is, are you prepared to take the time and the trouble to discover this new way of living, and to enjoy it forever?

The aim of this book is to empower you to respond ‘Yes’ to both questions. It takes courage and trust to take the first step. There will be voices, within and without, telling you to wait, or that you haven’t got what it takes, or to forget it. But if you are ready, the way is already being cleared for you. The adventures will be many. The road unsure. The pain never far away. This book is written from within the author’s own soul’s journey. It is drawn from a theology of creation and a spirituality of the heart.

Unmasking God: Revealing the Divine in the Ordinary Book and CD REPRINT
Category: Books > Spirituality > Spirituality Books
Author/Artist: O'LEARY, DANIEL
ISBN-10: 1925073726
ISBN-13: 9781925073720
Publisher: John Garratt Publishing
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$29.95
Description: An idea becomes truly comprehensible, Leo Tolstoy once wrote, only when it gives us the feeling that we know it already, by heart, and were simply recalling it. When we read or hear the reflections about the divine presence within all of us, about the holiness of our hearts, about the wonder of our bodies, it is not completely new. We have always carried that wisdom within us. We simply need to read and hear it, to be reminded of it.

The purpose of the reflections in this book is to reveal ‘the dearest freshness deep down things’, to disclose the secret of turning your life around, and of living more freely and more abundantly. Unmasking God reveals the intimate and liberating presence of the divine heart in ours, already waiting and hoping to be discovered at every moment, and in every experience of each new day. But usually we must dig persistently through the rubble of our lives before the beautiful gold surrenders itself. It is then that everything changes. We recover our lost happiness, our lost laughter. We begin to really live again. And so do those around us.

Passion for the Possible: A Spirituality of Hope for Today REPRINT

ISBN-13: 9781925073737
Publisher: John Garratt Publishing
Binding: PAPERBACK

Description: The title Passion for the Possible is an apt summary of what this book is about – the fierce desire to explore the potential for self-esteem arising from our own divine beauty, for a sense of our capacity for finding the healing light in our dark moments, for a new appreciation of our God-implanted creativity, and, finally, for our calling to redeem humanity and the world before it is too late.

Inspired: Slaying giants, walking on water and loving the Bible again
Category: Books > Scripture > Scripture Books
Author/Artist: EVANS, RACHEL HELD
ISBN-10: 0718022319
ISBN-13: 9780718022310
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$24.99
Description: One Woman's Journey Back to Loving the Bible

If the Bible isn't a science book or an instruction manual, then what is it? What do people mean when they say the Bible is inspired? When Rachel Held Evans found herself asking these questions, she began a quest to understand better what the Bible is and how it is meant to be read. What she discovered changed her, and it will change you too.

Drawing on the best in recent scholarship and using her well-honed literary expertise, Evans examines some of our favorite Bible stories and possible interpretations, retelling them through memoir, original poetry, short stories, soliloquies, and even a short screenplay. Undaunted by the Bible's most difficult passages, Evans wrestles through the process of doubting, imagining, and debating Scripture's mysteries. The Bible, she discovers, is not a static work but is a living, breathing, captivating, and confounding book that is able to equip us to join God's loving and redemptive work in the world.
