Church, Interrupted: Havoc and Hope: The Tender Revolt of Pope Francis
Category: Books > Church > Pope Francis
Author/Artist: CORNWELL, JOHN
ISBN-10: 1797202014
ISBN-13: 9781797202013
Publisher: Chronicle Books
Price: AU$54.95
Description: This book is a revealing portrait of Pope Francis's hopeful yet controversial efforts to recreate the Catholic Church as a welcoming place of empathy, love and inclusiveness.

Cornwell argues that despite fierce opposition Pope Francis has radically widened Catholic moral priorities, calling for mercy and compassion over rigid dogmatism.

“The discouraged, the disillusioned and marginalised are at the center of Francis’s pontificate and it is from their key perspectives that Cornwell’s Church Interrupted interprets this moment of hope in the life of the Catholic Church.”
Massimo Faggioli, Villanova University Professor of Theology and Religious Studies and author of The Liminal Papacy of Pope Francis

ISBN-10: 1760525898
ISBN-13: 9781760525897
Publisher: Murdoch Books
Price: AU$32.99
Description: '…Writing a book about something essentially ungraspable is a very bold decision, but thanks to her journalistic method and assured style, Jackman has pulled it off. A counterintuitive modern odyssey in which the heroine sets out from a land of deafening overplenty in search of ... less. Beautifully researched.' - ANNABEL CRABB

Turning Down the Noise follows Jackman’s journey as she explores what is happening to our brains, our lives and our communities as we navigate a never-ending assault on our senses and attention, whether from actual noise, exposure to media or the pings and alerts on our phones.

Importantly, she reveals how we can reverse the damage through simple daily acts designed to strip out the stimuli and reclaim the silence.
