St Teresa of Avila Her Life in Letters
ISBN-10: 0870613138
ISBN-13: 9780870613135
Publisher: Christian Classics
Price: AU$44.95
Description: This selection of letters of St Teresa of Avila offers a unique “behind the scenes” look at this extraordinary Doctor of the Church with details of her life not originally meant for the public. Her personal correspondence tells the story of her life in vivid detail, including her struggles to reform the Carmelite order; Spanish mysticism in its formation; and the extraordinary range of relationships she maintained with priests, theologians, royalty, fellow religious, advisors, and friends. The letters begin when St. Teresa was forty-six—six years after she entered the Carmelite Monastery of the Incarnation in Avila, Spain—and continue until her death twenty-one years later. She exhibits worries, troubles, sadness, joy, triumphs, and questions throughout. Recipients of these letters, and the people discussed in them, include some of the famous and fascinating figures of late sixteenth-century Catholic Europe: St. John of the Cross; María Enríquez de Toledo y Guzmán, the Duchess of Alba; St. Peter Alcantara; St. John of Avila; Ana de Mendoza, the Princess of Eboli; and Jerónimo Gracián de la Madre de Dios.

Lent Season of Transformation
Author/Artist: EKEH AMY
ISBN-10: 0814645097
ISBN-13: 9780814645093
Publisher: Liturgical Press
Price: AU$16.95
Description: During Lent, we strive to free ourselves from all kinds of clutter—material and spiritual—in order to focus on God and turn back to him with our whole hearts. If this “turning back” is genuine, it will be a reorientation, a transformation. To help us enter into this season, Amy Ekeh guides readers in exploring three key moments in the life and ministry of Jesus. The result will be a better understanding of the authentic transformation that God calls each of us to embrace as individuals and as a community and a renewed desire to live God’s own outward-looking, self-emptying, laying-down-one’s-life kind of love.

Challenges of Moral Leadership
ISBN-10: 9042932600
ISBN-13: 9789042932609
Publisher: Peeters
Price: AU$129.95
Description: What is it about leadership that makes being a moral leader such a challenge? Why do leaders typically make the same mistakes over and over again, throughout history, across cultures and over time? How do expectations of heroic leadership impact a leader's moral integrity? How do followers contribute to (or undermine) a robust ethical stance of their leaders?

This volume addresses these and other questions from a variety of interdisciplinary, practitioner and faith perspectives. It contains, for example, a historical account of leadership challenges, an engagement with the responsibility ethics of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and a contextual study of the specific challenges of ethical leadership in Russia. This second volume of the series Christian Perspectives on Leadership and Social Ethics, serves leaders to face an increasingly complex reality.

Beyond the Secular West
ISBN-10: 0231170815
ISBN-13: 9780231170819
Publisher: Columbia University Press
Price: AU$49.99
Description: Beyond the Secular West is a collection of essays, edited by Akeel Bilgram and written by scholars from various backgrounds, religions, and cultures who discuss “secular” in a worldview rather than the western view of the term. They offer a diverse range of critical perspectives as each explores ways in which the secular and secularism are translated and transformed beyond Latin Christendom. The range of perspectives extends from China to India, from the Mexican Revolution to Sufi brotherhoods in Senegal. Despite the various regions and diverse disciplinary orientations represented in the essays, they hang together as a coherent collection and serve to represent and richly illuminate the complexity of the issue of secularity as a global phenomenon. The essays provide an interesting opportunity to compare practices and beliefs of other cultures, to our own beliefs and interpretations of other cultures. They provide a factual and enlightening read for those with an advanced interest in cultures and beliefs outside of the Western view.

Redemption and Restoration A Catholic Perspective on Restorative Justice
ISBN-10: 0814645615
ISBN-13: 9780814645611
Publisher: Liturgical Press
Price: AU$59.95
Description: The Catholic Church teaches that punishment must have a constructive and redemptive purpose and that it be coupled with treatment and, when possible, restitution. Rehabilitation and restoration must include the spiritual dimension of healing and hope. This book develops the traditional Catholic understanding of justice, offers a theological understanding of restorative justice, explains how it can be implemented, and reflects on the practical arguments for restorative justice. Grounded in the stories of real people, Redemption and Restoration helps readers gain a deeper understanding of how this affects us all as a country and a church. It includes discussion questions to engage groups in exploring issues related to restorative justice.

Eros of the Human Spirit The Writings of Bernard Lonergan SJ
ISBN-10: 0809153424
ISBN-13: 9780809153428
Publisher: Paulist Press
Price: AU$54.99
Description: Both the desire to know and the desire to love can be observed and understood, affirmed for what they really are, and then gradually appropriated, making possible a fuller human development and life more abundant in community. This discovery was made progressively by Bernard Lonergan in his life and work as a philosopher and methodological theologian. It is possible to trace this moving viewpoint in his writings, where he thematises self-appropriation and presents it pedagogically in Insight: A Study of Human Understanding. Self-appropriation is heightened to reach the existential level by Method in Theology, where Lonergan makes religious conversion - complete being-in-love with God as a gift of grace - foundational for the theological enterprise.

Consideration is given, on the one hand, to obstacles to development, and on the other, to ways of becoming more at home with our own desire and of cooperating freely with the action of grace. This book demonstrates the relevance of appropriating the Eros of the human spirit to both the pursuit of theologians ad the faith journey of Christian believers.

One in Christ Virgil Michel Louis-Marie Chauvet and Mystical Body Theology
ISBN-10: 0814683975
ISBN-13: 9780814683972
Publisher: Michael Glazier
Price: AU$71.95
Description: What happened to the mystical body? A theology that stoked much theological creativity in the first half of the twentieth century both in Europe and in the United States had receded by the latter half of the century. One in Christ explores the theology of the mystical body of Christ as developed by Virgil Michel, OSB, examines the reasons for its decline, and traces it throughout the work of Louis-Marie Chauvet. By delineating three major streams of mystical body theology, Timothy R. Gabrielli helps readers understand it more clearly and, in so doing, lays the groundwork for harvesting its potential for contemporary theology.

Unmoored God Believing in a Time of Dislocation
Author/Artist: CROWLEY PAUL SJ
ISBN-10: 1626982465
ISBN-13: 9781626982468
Publisher: Orbis
Price: AU$47.95
Description: This short, profound reflection centers on the meaning of faith and the place of God in a time of "dislocation." As Paul Crowley writes: "Dislocated humanity is met by a God who chooses a divine dislocation in the Incarnation, entering simply and intimately into our own human condition and showing the way, through suffering, toward life. Believing in this unmoored God would look like entering into solidarity with unmoored humanity, and journeying with those who suffer, just as God did in Jesus."

For all who struggle with belief in God in a time lacking familiar props or sure signposts, Crowley offers answers from his own heartfelt reflection and theological struggles.
