King and the Catholics The Fight for Rights 1829
ISBN-10: 1474601936
ISBN-13: 9781474601931
Publisher: Orion House
Price: AU$55.00
Description: The story of Catholic Emancipation begins with the violent Anti-Catholic Gordon Riots in 1780, fuelled by the reduction in Penal Laws against the Roman Catholics harking back to the sixteenth century. Some fifty years later, the passing of the Emancipation Bill was hailed as a 'bloodless revolution'. Had the Irish Catholics been a 'millstone', as described by an English aristocrat, or were they the prime movers? While the English Catholic aristocracy and the Irish peasants and merchants approached the Catholic Question in very different ways, they manifestly shared the same objective.

Antonia Fraser brings colour and humour to the vivid drama with its huge cast of characters: George III, who opposed Emancipation on the basis of the Coronation Oath; his son, the indulgent Prince of Wales, who was enamoured with the Catholic Maria Fitzherbert before the voluptuous Lady Conyngham; Wellington and the 'born Tory' Peel vying for leadership; 'roaring' Lord Winchilsea; the heroic Daniel O'Connell.

Expertly written and deftly argued, The King and Catholics is also a distant mirror of our times, reflecting the political issues arising from religious intolerance.

Contemplating Christ The Gospels and the Interior Life
ISBN-10: 0814647057
ISBN-13: 9780814647059
Publisher: Liturgical Press
Price: AU$42.95
Description: The primary purpose of Vincent Pizzuto’s book, Contemplating Christ is to offer readers an appreciation of the Christian scriptures, through the perspective of the Christian mystical tradition. He approaches this in a threefold way. Firstly by explore in new and surprising ways New Testament readings in the light of the Christian contemplative life. He then reflects on the uniqueness of Christian mysticism particularly as it comes to expression in the interrelated doctrines of Incarnation and Divination.

Finally, Pizzuto offers ways in which aspects of the contemplative life may be realised through contemplative practice. Drawing on his rich experience as an academic and priest, Pizzuto gradually unfolds the Christian mystery of deification to which the whole of biblical revelation and the Christian contemplative life are ordered: through the incarnation, we have all been made "other Christs" in the world. His book offers us an invitation to read our Christian sources with a contemplative mind.

Light Shines on in the Darkness Transforming Suffering Through Faith
ISBN-10: 1586179578
ISBN-13: 9781586179571
Publisher: Ignatius Press
Price: AU$39.95
Description: In every age there is perplexity around the mystery of human suffering. It has always provided the stumbling block for many concerning the existence of God. Why does a loving God allow pain and suffering? Robert Spitzer provides a framework for gaining insight into the mystery of suffering which he hopes will enable readers to see light in the darkness.

The book is structured within the nine Christian Foundations for Suffering Well. Spitzer’s aim is to show that if these foundations are personally internalised we will encounter suffering in a way that is transformative. He explains why suffering - in combination with love - is one of the most powerful motivating agents for personal, cultural, and societal development. Suffering and love are inextricably bound up with one another on the highest levels of human meaning.

In addition to addressing the complexity of suffering, Spitzer gives a comprehensive explanation of contemporary evidence for God, the soul, and the resurrection, and helps us understand how God uses suffering to lead us to the resurrection, and to compassion for others. Finally in addressing the perplexing questions associated with suffering Spitzer teaches us how to suffer well.
