Description: Why might this man be declared a saint? Pedro Arrupe, twenty-eighth Superior General of the Society of Jesus, re-founded the Jesuits and re-cast Ignatian spirituality for our times. He was a prisoner of Imperial Japan, a first responder when the atom bomb fell on Hiroshima, a pioneer of Catholic social justice and a founder of the Jesuit Refugee Service.

Few people outside religious life know his story. But now that the process for his beatification is under way, he is sure to become known across the Catholic world and beyond. Brian Grogan SJ, whose life has been deeply influenced by Arrupe, has written Pedro Arrupe SJ: Mystic with Open Eyes. This booklet is a succinct account of Arrupe's life, 1907-1991; it highlights his dynamic influence on the church of today as it labours to build a civilisation of justice and love.

Publisher: Loyola House
Price: AU$32.95
Description: Is it really possible to change my life, in ways that will last?

Author Gary Jansen knows how difficult it can be to create significant, sustainable change in our lives. Sometimes we feel too overwhelmed to even start, and in other cases this self-work seems like one more burden. In his new book he offers an answer that he calls "microshifting"; small, incremental adjustments that gradually reshape our deeply rooted patterns.

With a blend of storytelling and practical tips, MicroShifts suggests simple, small changes across many aspects of our lives, everything from how we greet others to how we try to talk to God, to generate big results physically, mentally, and spiritually. If you are looking for steps to improve your life that are achievable, sustainable, and potentially life-changing, MicroShifts is a good place to begin.

Salt, Not Honey For a Faith that Stings
Category: Books > Spirituality > Spirituality Books
ISBN-10: 0648323323
ISBN-13: 9780648323327
Publisher: Coventry Press
Price: AU$30.00
Description: Fr Luigi Maria Epicoco accompanies the reader on a rethinking of the potential of Christian life. He begins by challenging a 'do-gooder' view of the faith and reminds us that the believer depends on no other law than the charity of Christ given us in baptism. For the potential which baptism introduces us to can be summed up in the three theological virtues, faith, hope and charity. These flow into life lived according to Christ: a joyful and free existence, because we are loved by God.

This book, then, suggests that we reflect on and rethink these 'three virtues' beginning with life itself, illuminated by biblical stories which become something of a program and provocation for all our lives.

Why Liberalism Failed
Category: Books > Theology > Philosophy
Author/Artist: DENEEN, PATRICK J
ISBN-10: 0300223447
ISBN-13: 9780300223446
Publisher: Yale U Press
Price: AU$44.99
Description: Of the three dominant ideologies of the twentieth century: fascism, communism, and liberalism, only the last remains. This has created a peculiar situation in which liberalism's proponents tend to forget that it is an ideology and not the natural end-state of human political evolution. As Patrick Deneen argues in this provocative book, liberalism is built on a foundation of contradictions: it trumpets equal rights while fostering incomparable material inequality; its legitimacy rests on consent, yet it discourages civic commitments in favour of privatism; and in its pursuit of individual autonomy, it has given rise to the most far-reaching, comprehensive state system in human history.

Here, Deneen offers an astringent warning that the centripetal forces now at work on our political culture are not superficial flaws but inherent features of a system whose success is generating its own failure.

Jesus Why he Spoke in Parables
Category: Books > Spirituality > Spirituality Books
ISBN-10: 0648323331
ISBN-13: 9780648323334
Publisher: Coventry Press
Price: AU$44.95
Description: Why did Jesus speak in parables? This is the question that brings together the reflections in this volume, a collection of meditations preached by Cardinal Martini at a spiritual retreat.

With profound wisdom, Martini reflects on the many gospel parables, parables about the seed, judgement, call, the lost and found. He highlights and identifies first of all how Jesus has the need, very much at heart, to communicate the mystery of the Father. But the mystery of God is so far beyond any notion of ours that it is precisely for this reason it can be expressed in so many ways. Hence, to reveal the confounding love of the Father, Jesus chooses to speak in parables, this way respecting our freedom and also being attentive to our fragility. Jesus' parables also force the listener to take a stance regarding his message and person.

It is a book that introduces us to a wise reading of the Gospel and to hearing the questions hidden within the Scriptures, as well as tasting God's presence.
