Conscience before Conformity Hans and Sophie Scholl and the White Rose
ISBN-10: 0852448430
ISBN-13: 9780852448434
Publisher: Gracewing
Price: AU$36.95
Description: Conscience before Conformity tells the story of German students who dared to speak out against Hitler and the Third Reich, and died for their beliefs. Operating under the name of the White Rose, they printed and distributed leaflets condemning Nazism and urging Germans to offer non-violent resistance to the ‘atheistic war machine’.

By looking at the cultural and religious journey of the protagonists, Hans and Sophie Scholl, we can see what made them change from active participants in the Hitler Youth to leaders of the White Rose resistance. These modern-day heroes were deeply influenced by intellectuals they met in secret, and by the writings of great Christian thinkers such as St Augustine, Pascal, Georges Bernanos, and Bl. John Henry Newman. What they learnt gave them the strength to put their consciences before conformity to the Nazi lie.

ISBN-13: 9780241187296
Publisher: Penguin Books
Price: AU$29.99
Description: Together is Better, is a little book of inspiration for the modern world. Most of us live our lives by accident. We live as it happens. Fulfilment comes when we live our lives on purpose. 'What are you going to do with your life? What are you doing with your life now?' 'Do you have goals? A vision? A clear sense of why you do what you do?' Almost everyone knows someone who has grappled with at least one of these questions. The answers can often seem elusive or uncertain.

Though there are many paths to follow into the unknown future, there is one way that increases the chances we will enjoy the journey. To travel with someone we trust. We can try to build a successful career or a happy life alone, but why would we? Together is better. This unique and delightful book makes the point that together is better in a quite unexpected way. Simon Sinek blends the wisdom he has gathered from around the world with a heartwarming, richly illustrated original fable. Working hard for something we do not care about, is called stress. Working hard for something we love, is called passion.

Saving Catholics A Workbook for Reform and Renewal in the Catholic Church
Author/Artist: GOOSEN GIDEON
ISBN-10: 0648232468
ISBN-13: 9780648232469
Publisher: Morning Star Publishing
Price: AU$26.95
Description: In Saving Catholics, author Gideon Goosen sets out to address the challenge championed by Pope Francis to reform the Catholic Church. He has written an interactive workbook bringing together historical, theological, sociological, and experiential insights to illuminate the main issues surrounding reform. Taking a measured approach by looking at both the positives and the negatives arising from the experience of Catholics, Goosen examines such things as what reform actually is, the need for reform, and psychological attitudes and resistance towards reform. He tackles thorny subjects like clericalism head-on and addresses the abuse of power in the church.

He also seeks out signs of hope, following the example of Pope Francis, and explores possible strategies for the future. Saving Catholics is a practical tool for parish, school or other community groups to aid in their discernment of the way forward to reform and renewal in the Catholic Church.

Behave The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst
ISBN-10: 009957506X
ISBN-13: 9780099575061
Publisher: Random House
Price: AU$24.99
Description: 'Awe-inspiring... You will learn more about human nature than in any other book I can think of' Henry Marsh THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER / WINNER OF THE 2017 LA TIMES BOOK PRIZE
'One of the best scientist-writers of our time' Oliver Sacks

Why do human beings behave as they do? We are capable of savage acts of violence but also spectacular feats of kindness: is one side of our nature destined to win out over the other? Every act of human behaviour has multiple layers of causation, spiralling back seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, years, even centuries, right back to the dawn of time and the origins of our species. In the epic sweep of history, how does our biology affect the arc of war and peace, justice and persecution? How have our brains evolved alongside our cultures? This is the exhilarating story of human morality and the science underpinning the biggest question of all: what makes us human?
