Publisher: Loyola House
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$28.95
Description: Effective catechists do not simply walk into a classroom and instinctively know what to do. To be successful, they require careful training and development. For that reason, recruiting high-quality candidates to the vocation of catechist, providing them with proper formation and training, and nurturing their vocation every step of the way is perhaps the highest priority for the successful catechetical leader.

This fourth volume of The Effective Catechetical Leader series delves into the specific qualities and skills to look for when recruiting catechists; how to supervise, evaluate, support, and affirm your catechists; how to facilitate spiritual growth and transformation for the catechists in your care; and so much more.

Esther in Ancient Jewish Thought
Author/Artist: KOLLER AARON
ISBN-10: 1107673887
ISBN-13: 9781107673885
Publisher: Cambridge Uni Press
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$40.95
Description: The book of Esther was a conscious reaction to much of the conventional wisdom of its day, challenging beliefs regarding the Jerusalem Temple, the land of Israel, Jewish law, and even God. Aaron Koller identifies Esther as primarily a political work, and shows that early reactions ranged from ignoring the book to 'rewriting' Esther in order to correct its perceived flaws. But few biblical books have been read in such different ways, and the vast quantity of Esther-interpretation in rabbinic literature indicates a conscious effort by the Rabbis to present Esther as a story of faith and traditionalism, and bring it into the fold of the grand biblical narrative. Koller situates Esther, and its many interpretations, within the intellectual and political contexts of Ancient Judaism, and discusses its controversial themes. His innovative line of enquiry will be of great interest to students and scholars of Bible and Jewish studies.

St Paul The Misunderstood Apostle
Author/Artist: ARMSTRONG KAREN
ISBN-10: 1782398155
ISBN-13: 9781782398158
Publisher: Atlantic Books
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$22.99
Description: St Paul is known throughout the world as the first Christian writer, authoring fourteen of the twenty-seven books in the New Testament. But as Karen Armstrong demonstrates in St Paul: The Misunderstood Apostle, he also exerted a more significant influence on the spread of Christianity throughout the world than any other figure in history.

It was Paul who established the first Christian churches in Europe and Asia in the first century, Paul who transformed a minor sect into the largest religion produced by Western civilization, and Paul who advanced the revolutionary idea that Christ could serve as a model for the possibility of transcendence. While we know little about some aspects of the life of St Paul - his upbringing, the details of his death - his dramatic vision of God on the road to Damascus is one of the most powerful stories in the history of Christianity, and the life that followed forever changed the course of history.

Faith Based Development How Christian Organizations Can Make a Difference
Author/Artist: MITCHELL BOB
ISBN-10: 1626982147
ISBN-13: 9781626982147
Publisher: Orbis
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$49.95
Description: International development work is a largely secular discipline that distances itself from faith concerns. Secular groups often see faith-based agencies as "irritating marginal players" in the global development scene. But what if much of the value of these groups is exactly the result of that sense of religious mission?

In this scholarly work, Mitchell provides a comprehensive study of theology of development, church history, and contemporary issues within the humanitarian industry. He posits that, contrary to popular perception, church organisations have long been major players in international development work, and that many of these organisations do take the relationship between their work and the faith that underpins it very seriously. Instead of apologising for their faith roots and expression, they should celebrate them and recognise the value they bring to every development enterprise, secular or not. This book will be of interest to theology students or leaders who seek to integrate their work and faith.
