No Body But Yours Lent Reflection on a Prayer by Teresa of Avila
Author/Artist: COX PAUL
ISBN-10: 1848678673
ISBN-13: 9781848678675
Publisher: Kevin Mayhew
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$37.95
Description: As Christians, we are all challenged by Jesusí final commission to his disciples, to go and make disciples of all nations. It has clearly not yet been accomplished and this is the springboard for Paul Coxís thought-provoking course of Lent reflections in No Body But Yours. Through six sessions, each of which can be followed either as a personal reflection for Lent, or as a group, the sentiments expressed in the prayer by St Teresa of Avila are examined in detail.

No Body but Yours is an essential aid for Lent, encouraging us to reflect not just upon how we live our faith, but how this faith is proclaimed and perhaps more importantly, how we can be Christ to and for others. Paul Cox encourages us to examine how we can be more Christlike, both in our own lives and in relation to others. It is a wonderful and daunting challenge, and one which, by our baptism into a life with Jesus, we agree to take up.

After Ten Years Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Our Times
Author/Artist: BARNETT VICTORIA J
ISBN-10: 1506433383
ISBN-13: 9781506433387
Publisher: Fortress Press
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$33.95
Description: How does one read the signs of the times? What does it mean to resist? How do we engage faithfully in struggle? Dietrich Bonhoeffer has achieved iconic status as one who epitomises what it means to struggle and resist tyranny and fascism and how one acts in faithful witness as a religious and political commitment. Bonhoeffer's witness and example is more relevant than ever. A testimony to that is a crucial essay penned by Bonhoeffer in 1942; "After Ten Years" is a succinct and sober reflection, and remains one of the best descriptions ever written about what happened to the German people under National Socialism. This volume presents this timely and unique essay in a fresh translation and a penetrating introduction and analysis of the importance of this essay-in Bonhoeffer's time and now in our own.

Bad Catholic's Essays on What's Wrong with the World
Author/Artist: BARNES MARC
ISBN-10: 076482709X
ISBN-13: 9780764827099
Publisher: Liguori Publications
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$29.95
Description: Marc Barnes first cared about being Catholic, "not out of any profound love for the person of Christ, but out of a profound distaste for my other options." After exploring the options of the secular world, Barnes came to the conclusion that even the secular world isn't secular enough. In fact, it is hopelessly Christian. Through these essays Barnes exposes the hopelessly Catholic nature of our fallen world, and the joyous news that, even for the bad Catholic or the non-Catholic, there is nowhere to hide from the Truth. The beauty of Christ's love can be found even in the most secular of circumstances.

So whether you've been hiding from the Good News or the world news, proclaiming "God is dead!" or "He is risen!," you'll find something in these essays to shout about.

Description: Luke's account of the two disciples on the road to Emmaus has an amazing power to inspire us. How do we understand that encounter on the road, and how can we be open to its message? How can it help us deepen our prayer life and understanding of Scripture so that we can grow closer to Jesus? How can it help us open our eyes to our liturgical encounter with Jesus and to all the ways he reveals himself to us each day? Finally, how might meeting Jesus on the road to Emmaus energise us to share Jesus message with other believers and with the world?

Here, in this insightful and prayer-provoking new book, Fr Dennis Billy invites us to join the two disciples on the way to Emmaus and experience for ourselves the power of the Risen Lord. It is an excellent companion to guide us all on the path of true and vibrant discipleship.

Jesus and the Last Supper
Author/Artist: BRANT PITRE
ISBN-10: 0802875335
ISBN-13: 9780802875334
Publisher: Wm Eerdmans
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$79.95
Description: Who did Jesus of Nazareth claim to be? What was his relationship to early Judaism? When and how did he expect the kingdom to come? What were his intentions? Though these key questions have been addressed in studies of the historical Jesus, Brant Pitre argues that they cannot be fully answered apart from a careful historical analysis of the Last Supper accounts. Yet these accounts, both by the Gospel writers and by Paul, are widely neglected by contemporary Jesus research. In this book Pitre fills a notable gap in historical Jesus research as he offers a rigorous, up-to-date study of the historical Jesus and the Last Supper. Situating the Last Supper in the triple contexts of ancient Judaism, the life of Jesus, and early Christianity, Pitre brings to light crucial insights into major issues driving the quest for Jesus.

Eucharistic Body
Author/Artist: SENN FRANK C
ISBN-10: 1506416764
ISBN-13: 9781506416762
Publisher: Fortress Press
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$79.95
Description: Building on his previous work on embodied liturgy, Frank C. Senn explores the relationship between the sacramental body and blood of Christ, the ecclesial body of Christ, and human bodies. Drawing on the richness of the eucharistic traditions and his own life experiences, this book expands our understandings of the Eucharist to include pilgrimage to the altar (ad altare Dei), a life of gratitude (anaphora), cosmology and praise (preface and Sanctus), body and memory (anamnesis), Spirit and community (epiclesis), Trinitarian orthodoxy and world view (doxology), presence and union with Christ (communion), and initiation and reconciliation (fencing the table).

It argues for use of a full eucharistic prayer to express a wider understanding of the Eucharist, including creation themes, an emphasis on the passion of Christ to connect the Eucharist to suffering humanity, an expansion of the fellowship dimension of the Eucharist to embrace the church in heaven and around the world, a recovery of Trinitarian praise, an ecumenical exploration of how we understand theologically the presence of Christ received bodily, and a reconsideration of the value of initiation in sacramental discipline and in the life of faith.

ISBN-13: 9781451482874
Publisher: Fortress Press
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$48.95
Description: Throughout the two-thousand-year span of Christian history, believers in Jesus have sought to articulate their faith and their understanding of how God works in the world. How do we, as we examine the vast and varied output of those who came before us, understand the unity and the diversity of their thinking? How do we make sense of our own thought in light of theirs?

The Christian Understandings series is an exciting new series that seeks to illuminate precisely these questions. Short, concise, orienting-volumes in the Christian Understandings series "fill in the gaps" for readers as they dive into the exciting and stimulating story of Christian thought.

Collected Sermons of Dietrich Bonhoeffer Volume 2
Author/Artist: BARNETT VICTORIA EDITED BY
ISBN-10: 1506433367
ISBN-13: 9781506433363
Publisher: Fortress Press
Binding: HARDBACK
Price: AU$61.95
Description: Preaching, according to Bonhoeffer, is like offering an apple to a child. The gospel is proclaimed, but for it to be received as gift depends on whether or not the hearer is in a position to do so. Offered here are 28 of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's sermons, in new English translations, which he preached at various times of the year and in a variety of different settings. In his preaching, Bonhoeffer's strong, personal faith--the foundation for everything he did--shines in the darkness of Hitler's Third Reich and in the church struggle against it. Though not overtly political, Bonhoeffer's deep concern for the developments in his world is revealed in his sermons as he seeks to draw the listener into conversation with the promises and claims of the gospel - a conversation readers today are invited to join. Each sermon is introduced by Victoria J. Barnett, general editor of the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works, English edition, from which these sermons are selected.

Trinity The Central Mystery of Christianity
Author/Artist: SCHWARZ HANS
ISBN-10: 1506432980
ISBN-13: 9781506432984
Publisher: Fortress Press
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$59.95
Description: The main question in this book is what is really scripturally tenable with regard to the Trinity and what is unwarranted theological construction or even speculation. Through this question, Schwarz tries to discern whether the theological assertions made about the Trinity are in line with the biblical base from which they are derived, or whether they have veered off in a more or less questionable direction. What takes shape here is a story: how the doctrine of the Trinity developed over the subsequent centuries from the traces in Scripture to a centralised dogma at the heart of Christian teaching. We witness in this an evolution from proclamation to controversy to speculation. What are we to make of this doctrine? How do we articulate the biblical faith today? Schwarz takes the reader on a readable and comprehensive journey through the doctrine of Trinity based on Scripture and recent insights.
