Christian Mindfulness: Theology and Practice
Category: Books > Spirituality > Spirituality Books
Author/Artist: TYLER PETER
ISBN-10: 0334056713
ISBN-13: 9780334056713
Publisher: SCM Press
Price: AU$59.95
Description: Many Christian commentators have been taken aback by the seemingly unstoppable rise of the ‘mindfulness revolution’ that has occurred over the past decade. But there are many Christians who worry that mindfulness techniques constitute a covert import from Buddhism. How far are Christians adopting Buddhist techniques, ideas and ideologies? Do we risk squaring Buddhist ideology and approaches to fit the Christian circle?

Beginning with an exploration of the practice of mindfulness in its Buddhist origins, Peter Tyler reflects on the practical use of mindfulness, its place within the Christian tradition of prayer, and its future within the Christian tradition. Tyler argues that far from a foreign import mindfulness is not only endemic but essential to the Christian understanding of how the human person relates to the divine. Each chapter concludes with practical exercises to help the reader in their understanding of mindfulness in the Christian context.

Publisher: Penguin Books
Price: AU$22.99
Description: In Grief Works we hear stories from those who have experienced great love and great loss; and survived. Stories that explain how grief unmasks our greatest fears, strips away our layers of protection and reveals our innermost selves.

Julia Samuel, a grief psychotherapist, has spent twenty-five years working with the bereaved and understanding the full repercussions of loss. This deeply affecting book is full of psychological insights on how grief, if approached correctly, can heal us. Through moving stories, we learn how we can stop feeling awkward and uncertain about death, and not shy away from talking honestly with family and friends.

Jon Sobrino: Spiritual Writings
Category: Books > Spirituality > Spirituality Series
ISBN-10: 1626983003
ISBN-13: 9781626983007
Publisher: Orbis
Price: AU$47.95
Description: Jon Sobrino, a Jesuit priest in El Salvador, is one of the original voices of liberation theology and among the most prophetic theologians in the church to­day. After studies in Germany, he returned to El Salvador, where his immersion in the world of the suffering poor transformed his theology. It was like "awakening from the sleep of inhu­manity." From this perspective came a new understanding of Jesus's life, death, and resur­rection, and their meaning for the "crucified peoples" of the world. Sobrino's work was further shaped by his rela­tionship to Archbishop Romero and the other martyrs of El Salvador, particularly his own Jesuit community, who were massacred in 1989.

This collection of his spiritual writings, including many texts translated here for the first time, conveys a powerful understanding of the meaning of discipleship in terms of soli­darity with the poor and rejected people of our world.

Mindful Silence: The Heart of Christian Contemplation
Category: Books > Spirituality > Spirituality Books
ISBN-10: 0830846492
ISBN-13: 9780830846498
Publisher: Intervarsity Press
Price: AU$39.95
Description: After many years leading an international humanitarian organisation, Phileena Heuertz experienced the deconstruction of her identity, worldview, and faith. Centering prayer, a Christian expression of mindfulness, was a crucial remedy, offering a more peace-filled and purposeful life. The hallmarks of contemplative spirituality - solitude, silence, and stillness - have never been more important for our society: In solitude, we develop the capacity to be present. In silence, we cultivate the ability to listen. In stillness, we acquire the skill of self-control.

Filled with insights and wisdom from her own experience, Phileena introduces us to themes and teachers of contemplative spirituality, as well as several prayer practices, and invites us to greater healing and wholeness by learning to practice faith through prayer. This is an opportunity to go deeper with God - to experience the Divine and be transformed.

Miracle of Love A Guide for Catholic Pastoral Care
Category: Books > Ministry / Parish Life > Ministry Books
ISBN-10: 0648145735
ISBN-13: 9780648145738
Publisher: Coventry Press
Price: AU$24.95
Description: Catholic pastoral care, with its foundation in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the long tradition of caring within the Church, claims a different, more focused, more Christ-like motivation and purpose. This new, comprehensive and encouraging guide to Catholic pastoral care explores that different approach, offering opportunities, reflections and informed commentary on various models of caring, the reality and meaning of suffering, the qualities of carers, and the need for acceptance (and love!) of oneself as a forerunner to caring for others.

The book asserts that people matter; that Western society’s emphasis on the material as the criterion for valuing individuals is contrary to the gospel of Jesus Christ. The book is overtly Catholic in its concern to help us understand how care matters and is needed, not just by the one receiving care, but by givers too.
