Real Presence: What Does It Mean and Why Does It Matter?
Category: Books > Faith Formation > The Catholic Faith
ISBN-10: 1646800559
ISBN-13: 9781646800551
Publisher: Ave Maria Press
Price: AU$32.95
Description: O'Malley offers a concise introduction to Catholic teaching on real presence and transubstantiation through a biblical, theological, and spiritual account of these doctrines from the early Church to today. He also explores how real presence enables us to see the vulnerability of human life and the dignity of all flesh and blood.

O'Malley presents a deeper understanding and renewed faith in Catholic teaching about transubstantiation and real presence showing:

- how the doctrine of real presence is rooted in divine revelation and how the Church's teaching regarding transubstantiation is spiritually fruitful for the believer today;
- how to make your own the doctrine of real presence by worshipping Christ in the Eucharist and therefore making a real assent to real presence;
- how the Eucharist, although not the exclusive presence of Christ in the Church's liturgy and mission, is crucial in growing our capacity for recognizing those other presences; and
- the important relationship between Eucharistic communion and adoration.

Chastity: Reconciliation of the Senses
Category: Books > Spirituality > Spirituality Books
Author/Artist: ERIK VARDEN
ISBN-10: 1399411411
ISBN-13: 9781399411417
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Price: AU$32.99
Description: The word 'chastity', at first sight, may seem intimidating, something to be dismissed out of hand. It is, however, something very different to celibacy.

At a time when religion is in decline in the Western world and when it often seems that the senses have run riot, Erik Varden shows that chastity, the single minded direction of the senses, is a loveable quality and one that affects and beautifies humankind.
The terms sexuality and wholeness indicate that to be sexual is to exist in a state of incompleteness longing to be restored. Wholeness points to a healing embrace that we desire so greatly. In Biblical language, chastity is a function of simplicity of sight. We are no longer torn apart by our passions and our desires, indeed they may reach their fulfilment. Body and spirit, male and female, order and disorder, passion and death can move from creative tension to a new kind of wholeness.

Varden's text is enriched by a wide range of references to scripture, literature, music, painting and sculpture.

The Great Dreamer: The Life and Mission of St. Francis Xavier
Category: Books > Biographies > Biographies
ISBN-10: 1788126637
ISBN-13: 9781788126632
Publisher: Messenger Publications
Price: AU$33.95
Description: A short but fascinating biography of this most courageous and adventurous of saints. One of Ignatius of Loyola's original companions, St Francis was central to the formation of the Society of Jesus. Quoting extensively from his letters, the author describes in detail the works he did throughout Europe in the 1530s.

There are many stories and anecdotes which bring Xavier to life and we begin to feel we know him well as we learn about his personality, his interactions with the poor, priests, bishops and kings. On April 7th, 1541, Xavier's thirty-fifth birthday, he set sail for India, arriving in Goa just over a year later. He spent about 8 years in both India and Indonesia, baptising thousands and working to set up churches and communities. In 1549 he arrived in Japan where he spent a couple of years, before travelling to China where he died in 1552 just six miles from the Chinese coast.

Passions of the Soul
Category: Books > Spirituality > Spirituality Books
ISBN-10: 1399415689
ISBN-13: 9781399415682
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Price: AU$24.99
Description: Rowan Williams opens up the great classics of Eastern Christian writing to show how it can help us to understand and cope with the ups and downs of modern life.

With compelling and illuminating insight, he shows the cost of living in a culture that is theologically and philosophically undernourished, working with a diminished and trivialized picture of the human self. The Eastern tradition teaches us how to develop our self-knowledge and awareness so that we can relate to the world without selfish illusions. Only then can we be ready for our eyes to be opened to God, and avoid destructive patterns of behaviour.

Only in this way can we understand the kind of people we need to become.

The Pauline Book and the Dilemma of Ephesians
Category: Books > Scripture > Scripture Series
ISBN-10: 0567703754
ISBN-13: 9780567703750
Publisher: T & T Clark
Price: AU$59.99
Description: Benjamin J. Petroelje argues that how one reads Ephesians is a function of deeper questions about how to read the Pauline book. Petroelje suggests the contemporary consensus-that Ephesians depicts development of/away from the 'real Paul' is largely a construct of modern criticism, rooted in shifting strategies about how to read a letter collection that developed in the 19th-century.

Using Ephesians 3:1-13 as a point of analysis, Petroelje theorizes that the text's 'image of Paul' not only anticipates recent revisionist interpretations of Paul's Jewish identity and gentile gospel, but also holds together tensions in the collection itself surrounding these questions. By analysing ancient letter collections beside their own hermeneutical priorities, and applying this method to the late-antique and modern reception of the corpus Paulinum, Petroelje is able to historicize the origins of the split of Paul's corpus, revealing the constructed nature of the critical consensus on Ephesians and the effect that such modern reading strategies have on interpreting the letter. Urging a return to reading Ephesians alongside Pauline co-texts, Petroelje advocates for Ephesians as a crucial source for the study of Paul, whether Paul wrote it or not.

The Formal Education of the Author of Luke-Acts
Category: Books > Scripture > Scripture Series
Author/Artist: STEVE REECE
ISBN-10: 0567705927
ISBN-13: 9780567705921
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Price: AU$59.99
Description: Steve Reece proposes that the author of Luke-Acts was trained as a youth in the primary and secondary Greek educational curriculum typical of the Eastern Mediterranean during the Roman Imperial period.

Reece begins with a thorough examination of the Greek educational system during the Hellenistic and Roman Imperial periods, emphasizing that the educational curriculum was very homogeneous, and that children growing up anywhere in the Eastern Mediterranean could expect to receive quite similar educations. His close examination of the Greek text of Luke-Acts has turned up echoes, allusions, and quotations of several of the very authors that were most prominently featured in the school curriculum- Homer, Aesop, Euripides, Plato, and Aratus.

This reinforces the view that Luke, along with other writers of the New Testament, lived in a cultural milieu that was influenced by Classical and Hellenistic Greek literature and that he was not averse to invoking that literature when it served his theological and literary purposes.
