Albert Namatjira
Category: Books > Gift Books > Gift Books
ISBN-10: 0642334757
ISBN-13: 9780642334756
Publisher: New South Books
Price: AU$39.95
Description: A bruised ridge of hills. A scrub-mottled plain. Ghost gums framing a wash of sky... Pioneering Aboriginal watercolourist Albert Namatjira’s landscape paintings are synonymous with our perception of the Australian outback. But these luminous landscapes also expressed Namatjira’s deep connection with the Western Arrarnta Country for which he was a traditional custodian.

This is the first publication of Namatjira’s work since the copyright was returned to his descendants, and celebrates the legacy of this important artist through a selection of his evocative watercolours from the National Gallery of Australia’s world-renowned collection.

Ultimately, Can We Be Friends? reminds us that authentic, life-giving friendship helps us to become our true self.

Disorderly Women and the Order of God
Category: Books > Scripture > Scripture Books
ISBN-10: 0567674118
ISBN-13: 9780567674111
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Price: AU$170.00
Description: Michele A. Connolly's postcolonial analysis links the Gospel of Mark - produced in the context of the Roman Empire - with contemporary Australia, established initially as a colony of the British Empire. Feminist analysis of texts from two foundational events in Australian colonial history reveal that women in such texts tend to be marginalised, silenced and denigrated. Connolly posits that imperialist sexism, both ancient and modern, perceives women as a threat to the order that males alone can impose on the world.

The Gospel of Mark portrays Jesus bringing the order of the Reign of God to combat the disorder of apocalyptic evil. Jesus' task is a markedly male project, against which eleven female characters are portrayed as disorderly distractions who are managed by being marginalised, silenced and denigrated, contradicting Jesus' message of mutual service and non-domination. In his death under apocalyptic power, Jesus is likewise depicted as isolated, silenced and denigrated, subtly associating femininity with chaos, failure and disgrace.

History and Presence
Category: Books > Theology > Theology Books
Author/Artist: ORSI ROBERT A
ISBN-10: 0674984595
ISBN-13: 9780674984592
Publisher: Belknap Press
Price: AU$44.99
Description: Beginning with metaphysical debates in the sixteenth century over the nature of Christ's presence in the host, the distinguished historian and scholar of religion Robert Orsi imagines an alternative to the future of religion that early moderns proclaimed was inevitable.

"This book is classic Orsi: careful, layered, humane, and subtle... If reformed theology has led to the gods' ostensible absence in modern religion, History and Presence is a sort of counter-reformation literature that revels in the excesses of divine materiality: the contradictions, the redundancies, the scrambling of borders between the sacred and profane, the dead and the living, the past and the present, the original and the imitator...History and Presence is a thought-provoking, expertly arranged tour of precisely those abundant, excessive phenomena which scholars have historically found so difficult to think."
--Sonja Anderson, Reading Religion

"With reference to Marian apparitions, the cult of the saints and other divine-human encounters, Orsi constructs a theory of presence for the study of contemporary religion and history. Many interviews with individuals devoted to particular saints and relics are included in this fascinating study of how people process what they believe."
--Catholic Herald

In God's Image Recognizing the Profoundly Impaired as Persons
Category: Books > Theology > Moral Theology
ISBN-10: 1625646321
ISBN-13: 9781625646323
Publisher: Cascade Books
Price: AU$39.95
Description: In God’s Image: Recognizing the Profoundly Impaired as Persons is a bold Catholic argument in defense of the profoundly impaired. While a range of theological voices can now be heard speaking up on behalf of those who live their lives at the extremes of the human condition, few voices have been explicitly Catholic.

Comensoli draws on the irreplaceable contribution of St. Thomas Aquinas to forge an engagement with one of the leading thinkers in the theology of the disabled, Professor Hans Reinders. While recognizing the crucial contribution that Reinders has made, Comensoli situates our perception of the cognitively impaired within the horizon of God’s own image, refusing a reduction of the substantialist position the Catholic tradition has always valued. This is linked to the fresh and countercultural community life pioneered by Jean Vanier, founder of the L’Arche communities. For Comensoli, the profoundly impaired are persons whose personhood cannot be recognized outside of the condition of their impairment, and through which God’s Image is perceived in all its paradoxical implications.

Playing from the Heart

Publisher: Walker & Co
Price: AU$19.99
Description: An inspiring and moving book which tells the story of a father and son, who connect through the powerful language of music. When a young boy begins to play on his family's piano, revelling in the fun of plunking the keys, his father signs him up for lessons so that he can learn to play properly. With his father's encouragement, Raj learns notes, then scales, then songs, and finally classical pieces that his father can recognize and be proud of.

But the more Raj practises and the more skilled he becomes, the less he enjoys playing - until he grows up and stops playing altogether. But when his father becomes ill and asks Raj to play for him, will Raj still remember how to play from the heart?

Rites and Wrongs of Liturgy Why Good Liturgy Matters
Category: Books > Liturgy > Liturgical Rites
ISBN-10: 0814645631
ISBN-13: 9780814645635
Publisher: Liturgical Press
Price: AU$29.95
Description: The Rites and Wrongs of Liturgy explains why good liturgy is important, how to recognize it, and how to assess liturgy in terms of a larger vision of the Christian life. O'Loughlin, a seasoned theologian and teacher, identifies ten principles that make for good liturgy. Such liturgy must be honest, open, joyful, inclusive, celebrative of community, facilitative of engagement, based in creation, attentive to the marginalized, free of clutter, and true to the pattern of the incarnation.

Since good celebrations build faith and bad liturgy weakens it, these principles promise to bring new life and meaning to every celebrating community.
