Faith and the Political in the Post-Secular Age
Author/Artist: MAHER ANTHONY (ED)
ISBN-10: 0648230317
ISBN-13: 9780648230311
Publisher: Coventry Press
Price: AU$24.95
Description: This collection of essays challenges widespread public scepticism, offering an optimistic account of the human person. An ecumenical work, the authors challenge the current polarising rise of aggressive atheism and closed-truth fundamentalisms, both religious and economic.

Faith and the Political in a Post-Secular Age is mindful that a Gospel inspired prophetic voice seeks to persuade rather than coerce, to strike a balance between individual autonomy and the protection of the common good. Appealing to those of faith and none, written by leading scholars, yet in a conversational style that is accessible to the modern reader, the book opposes the growing cultural dominance of ‘fake news’ and advocates for rigorous ‘truth-seeking.’

Grounded in a concrete social and ecclesial reality, the collection presents Christian humanism at its best, as a hope-filled way of living. It is foremost a call to action, one that openly challenges controlling, dominating interests, unambiguously speaking truth to power. The authors present a hope in God that is built upon a pragmatic foundation of moral, social, political and economic action. In so doing, they effectively challenge contemporary cultural narratives of individualism and division, providing an inspirational Gospel vision of hope for human solidarity.

Price: AU$38.99
Description: Cardinal Vincent Nichols is the Archbishop of Westminster and leader of the 4 million Catholics in Britain. He has become known outside his community for his calls for prison reform, business ethics, and the welcoming of immigrants but also as an outstanding religious leader. In this book the Cardinal offers his own personal reflections on divine revelation and mankind's relationship with God, the importance of theological literacy in education and care for people in a global society. The book distills his reflections on the "lure of God" and the implications of this intimate relationship for how one lives in solidarity with all God's creation.

The Cardinal writes at all times in an accessible style. There is nothing patronizing about his writing, for he is fully in tune with the message and example of Pope Francis: a bias to the poor, a theology of mercy that the door of the Church is always open.
