Beyond Measure, Volume 279: The Poetics of the Image in Bernard of Clairvaux
Category: Books > Spirituality > Classics
Author/Artist: SLATER, ISAAC
ISBN-10: 0879072792
ISBN-13: 9780879072797
Publisher: Cistercian Pub
Price: AU$84.95
Description: Bernard of Clairvaux continually returns to the classical idea that the quality of desire shapes theological imagination. He develops and applies this insight, uncovering a new depth of unity to the literary, philosophical, and theological strands densely interwoven through his writings.

Bernard's apparent iconoclasm with respect to art, affectivity, and the humanity of Jesus is revealed as an alternative mystical aesthetic, congruent with his program for monastic reform. The central movement of Cistercian spirituality from the carnal to the spiritual is shown not to elide but recapitulate the carnal in higher spiritual expression. Further, this approach provides fresh understanding of the ways in which Bernard is at once "last of the fathers" and "first of the moderns."

In particular, a careful reading of the book's chapters by Julia Kristeva and Jean-Luc Marion on Bernard reveals both the enduring brightness and vitality of his writing and the relevance of his work for people today.

Dear Movies
Category: Books > Spirituality > Spirituality Books
Author/Artist: MALONE PETER
ISBN-10: 0648725189
ISBN-13: 9780648725183
Publisher: Coventry Press
Price: AU$44.95
Description: In Dear Movies, Peter Malone draws on his long experience of film reviewing and leading workshops on films and values. He has often been asked, 'What's your favourite film?' Dear Movies is part of his answer. He as chosen to write letters to over 100 movies, each letter beginning a conversation with the film, opening up some of their themes, their ways of telling stories, their roles as fables and parables.

Jesus told stories about the ordinary, familiar things of everyday life, stories that still teach us to look more deeply into ourselves and identify what is real, lasting, precious, encouraging, difficult and demanding.

This is the kind of storytelling we look for in films. We have looked for values and spirituality in music, in the visual arts, in theatre, in poetry and novels; movies too invite us to share experiences and to connect film with our understanding of God's purposes for our lives.

Ecclesiology at the Beginning of the Third Millennium
Category: Books > Theology > Theology Books
ISBN-10: 1532665334
ISBN-13: 9781532665332
Publisher: Wipf & Stock
Price: AU$59.95
Description: Born from the side of Jesus, pierced on the cross, the church is the living body of Christ. Like Jesus himself, it is both eternal and temporal, spiritual and material, spotless and wounded. Constituted as an integrated, living body, the church is the sacrament of Christ; that is, it reveals Christ to the world and makes him present in the world. It exists in order to evangelize and does this most effectively when its diverse members are united in love.

This collection of chapters written by scholars from diverse fields offers a fresh approach to Catholic ecclesiology. Readers of this book will discover anew the beauty of the church, a living body always old and ever new.

"May this work of theological reflection be an encounter - thoughtful, critical and challenging - with Christ and with others in the communion of the Church". From the preface

God's Foolishness: A Spirituality of Heart
Category: Books > Spirituality > Spirituality Books
ISBN-10: 0648804461
ISBN-13: 9780648804468
Publisher: Coventry Press
Price: AU$18.95
Description: God's Foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God's weakness is stronger than human strength.
(1 Corinthians 1:25).

Reflecting on his own life and on the lives and teachings of a range of spiritual writers, Brian Gallagher discovers God's foolishness, 'wiser than human wisdom'. He gladly acknowledges the influence of these women and men on his personal spirituality, a spirituality of heart.

He calls them 'prophets, leaders, saints', and though human wisdom held little expectation for any of them, God's foolishness saw them with very different eyes.

The Cry of the Earth and the Cry of the Poor: Hearing Justice in John's Gospel
Category: Books > Scripture > John
ISBN-10: 0334059054
ISBN-13: 9780334059059
Publisher: SCM Press
Price: AU$65.95
Description: The focus of "The Cry of the Earth and the Cry of the Poor" is around the lectionary readings from the Gospel. Far from being a Gospel which sits at a safe remove from every day life, the author suggests it can in fact be preached as an urgent call to hear the voices of the oppressed in our world.

This is an encouraging resource especially for preachers to engage in the ancient practice of lectio divina. The book offers an accessible text to help address the divorce between what is heard from pulpit, and the urgent social and ecological justice concern of our times.

The Mystery of Death: Awakening to Eternal Life
Category: Books > Theology > Theology Books
ISBN-10: 1948626152
ISBN-13: 9781948626156
Publisher: Monkfish Book Publishing
Price: AU$42.99
Description: What precisely happens at the time of death is a question that theologians have struggled over for centuries but have never answered satisfactorily. The response to this question that Ladislaus Boros gives in his monumental synthesis, The Mystery of Death, is that in death we meet Christ fully for the first time and in doing so attain to full consciousness and freedom. It is therefore only in the moment of death that we are able to elect for or against our eternal salvation; it is we ourselves who pass judgment on ourselves.

In her introduction and commentary, Cynthia Bourgeault argues passionately that Ladislaus Boros represents a necessary link to understanding the radical theology of Teilhard de Chardin. She presents Boros who stands firmly on the shoulders of his celebrated Jesuit mentor Karl Rahner as a "powerful potential bridgebuilder, able to mediate an illuminating dialogue between Teilhard and the greater Christian theological tradition.
