Barking to the Choir PAPERBACK The Power of Radical Kinship
ISBN-10: 1476726167
ISBN-13: 9781476726168
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Price: AU$31.95
Description: In his first book, Tattoos on the Heart, Gregory Boyle introduced us to Homeboy Industries, the largest gang-intervention program in the world. Now, after the organisation's successful expansion, Boyle returns with Barking to the Choir to reveal how compassion is transforming the lives of gang members.

In a nation deeply divided and plagued by poverty and violence, Barking to the Choir offers a snapshot into the challenges and joys of life on the margins. Sergio, arrested at age nine, in a gang by age twelve, and serving time shortly thereafter, now works with the substance-abuse team at Homeboy to help others find sobriety. Jamal, abandoned by his family when he tried to attend school at age seven, gradually finds forgiveness for his schizophrenic mother. New father Cuco, who never knew his own dad, thinks of a daily adventure on which to take his four-year-old son. These former gang members uplift the soul and reveal how bright life can be when filled with unconditional love and kindness.

Sacred Reading 2019 The Guide to Daily Prayer
ISBN-10: 1594718555
ISBN-13: 9781594718557
Publisher: Ave Maria Press
Price: AU$33.95
Description: Sacred Reading: The 2019 Guide to Daily Prayer provides a prayerful and intimate exploration of the daily gospel readings, illuminating each passage through a simple, six-step process that draws you into a personal encounter with Christ. Unlike other prayer books using the traditional spiritual devotion of lectio divina, this guide includes the Pope’s monthly prayer intentions, allowing you to participate in the global life of the Church while strengthening your own faith.

A straightforward yet deeply prayerful approach to the ancient practice of lectio divina will help you develop a sense of the universal Church in prayer for persecuted Christians, national leaders, the elderly, and those in need.

With Sacred Reading, you will be guided to:

know God is present;
read the gospel;
notice what you think and feel;
pray as you are led for yourself and others;
listen to God; and
ask him how to show you how to live each day.

Beginning with Advent and continuing through the entire liturgical year, this book is a practical resource for anyone who is interested in a deeper prayer life or is seeking a new approach to both praying and living the gospel.

Your Parish Is the Curriculum RCIA in the Midst of the Community
ISBN-10: 0814644651
ISBN-13: 9780814644652
Publisher: Liturgical Press
Price: AU$32.95
Description: Diana Macalintal argues that we have to stop trying to get the parish involved in the RCIA and start getting the catechumens and candidates involved in the parish.

In this book, readers will discover:
- why doing the RCIA in the midst of the community not only forms seekers into disciples but renews the conversion of the entire parish;
- what parishioners can do to take responsibility for the initiation of adults, without adding another meeting to their lives;
- how to use the four key areas of parish life and the liturgical year to introduce seekers to Christ and train them in the Christian way of life;
- the three levels of catechesis and how to use mystagogical reflection on parish life to provide a systematic and complete catechesis appropriate for each level.

When you make your parish the RCIA curriculum, you will be shaping not just a group of people but an entire community into lifelong disciples.

ISBN-13: 9781526602718
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Price: AU$24.99
Description: A deeply moving, gorgeously illustrated short story for people of all ages from the international bestselling author of The Kite Runner, brought to life by Dan Williams's beautiful illustrations

'The book may be brief, but it is beautiful, poetic - a distillation of his strengths' Sunday Times

On a moonlit beach a father cradles his sleeping son as they wait for dawn to break and a boat to arrive. He speaks to his boy of the long summers of his childhood, recalling his grandfather's house in Syria, the stirring of olive trees in the breeze, the bleating of his grandmother's goat, the clanking of her cooking pots. And he remembers, too, the bustling city of Homs with its crowded lanes, its mosque and grand souk, in the days before the sky spat bombs and they had to flee.

When the sun rises they and those around them will gather their possessions and embark on a perilous sea journey in search of a new home.

Psalm Conversations Listening in as They Talk with One Another
Author/Artist: CHATHAM JAMES O
ISBN-10: 0814644600
ISBN-13: 9780814644607
Publisher: Liturgical Press
Price: AU$32.95
Description: Using the insights of the "shape and shaping of the Psalms" work done by Psalms scholars over the past twenty-five years, James Chatham presents an inviting study for non-experts to explore the interactions that various psalms have with one another. The book invites us to listen in on several psalm conversations, to realise how contemporary they are, and to join them. Chatham encourages us to immerse ourselves in the mind, heart, and world of the Psalms editor, to get to know those editors well, and to realise that their world was, in important ways, very much like ours. Through this process, the messages spoken by the Psalms editors emerge with words of faith about everyday issues in human living, both then and now.
