Bonhoeffer's Christocentric Theology and Fundamental Debates in Environmental Ethics
Category: Books > Theology > Environmental Theology
Author/Artist: VAN DEN HEUVEL STEVEN C
ISBN-10: 149829619X
ISBN-13: 9781498296199
Publisher: Pickwick Publications
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$55.95
Description: There is widespread understanding of the close connection between religion and the ecological crisis, and that in order to amend this crisis, theological resources are needed. This monograph seeks to contribute to this endeavour by engaging the theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

In this monograph, Steven van den Heuvel first of all addresses the question of how to translate Bonhoeffer's theology in a methodologically sound way. Then, secondly, he sets out to describe five major concepts in Bonhoeffer's work, bringing these into critical interplay with discussions in environmental ethics and eco-theology. He then transposes these concepts to contemporary environmental ethics, describing what contribution Bonhoeffer's theology can make.

Bounce Learning to Thrive Through Loss Tragedy and Heartache
Category: Books > Psychology > Psychology Books
Author/Artist: FRUH AARON
ISBN-10: 0801075157
ISBN-13: 9780801075155
Publisher: Baker
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$29.95
Description: When we get knocked down by life, we have two choices: we can give in to our difficult circumstances by embracing our feelings of resentment, disappointment, indecisiveness, and self-pity. Or we can learn how to bounce back stronger, wiser, and happier than before.

Drawing on some of his own painful experiences, Fruh shares biblical insights and practical strategies for building our resilience so that we can experience loss not as a monster that comes to steal our joy but as a mentor that comes to form our character. He gives readers hope that the painful season they are going through is not the end-it is just the beginning of a brighter season to come.

Call to Mission A History of the Jesuits in China 1842-1954 Volume 1 The French Romance
Category: Books > Church > Church History
Author/Artist: STRONG DAVID SJ
ISBN-10: 1925643565
ISBN-13: 9781925643565
Publisher: ATF Press
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$49.95
Description: China has bulked large in the imagination of the Catholic Church for 500 years. The Jesuits were the first multinational to be welcomed in China and they came with a specific method of engagement - to make friends, build relationships and share their gifts before anything else was transacted, including conversations about Christianity. It remains an unsurpassed method of engagement with a rich and ancient people. But the second arrival - from the 1840's - was very different. It was made possible by the arrival of European governments and traders, many of whom came not just for financial gain but to spread their "superior" religion.

This work by David Strong in two volumes is the first major treatment of the period from the arrival of the European and eventually American Jesuit missionaries under the protection of the so called Unequal Treaties through to their expulsion after the Communist victory in the long running civil war in 1949.

Volume 1: The French Romance – traces the people, projects, expansion and impact of those who provided the predominant Jesuit presence. At the height of it’s engagement with China, the French Government has 19 Consulates and attendant military and navy throughout China. The French Jesuits were afforded access and protection by their government and activated missions in northern and central China – schools, seminaries, universities, parishes, retreat houses, publications – and attracted Chinese nationals to join their number.

Culture
Category: Books > Theology > Theology Books
Author/Artist: EAGLETON TERRY
ISBN-10: 0300228732
ISBN-13: 9780300228731
Publisher: Yale U Press
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$27.99
Description: In this keenly analytical and acerbically funny book, Eagleton explores how culture and our conceptualisations of it have evolved over the last two centuries; from rarified sphere to humble practices, and from a bulwark against industrialism's encroaches to present-day capitalism's most profitable export.

Ranging over art and literature as well as philosophy and anthropology, Eagleton provides a cogent overview of culture set firmly in its historical and theoretical contexts, illuminating its collusion with colonialism, nationalism, the decline of religion, and the rise of and rule over the "uncultured" masses. Eagleton also examines culture today, lambasting the commodification and co-option of a force that, properly understood, is a vital means for us to cultivate and enrich our social lives, and can even provide the impetus to transform civil society.

Death and Life Resurrection Restoration and Rectification in Paul's Letter to the Galatians
Category: Books > Scripture > St Paul
Author/Artist: BOAKYE ANDREW K
ISBN-10: 1498290000
ISBN-13: 9781498290005
Publisher: Pickwick Publications
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$43.95
Description: The resurrection of Jesus is arguably the most significant component of the Christian narrative and is critical for Paul's presentation of the Gospel. Yet it is routinely marginalised in study of the polemics of Galatians, largely because it is explicitly mentioned only once, and even then, only obliquely. This investigation redraws the boundaries of its impact in the letter, showing the risen Christ to be an indispensable feature of how Paul's argument unfolds and achieves its ultimate objective--establishing a rationale for the creation of a multiethnic eschatological family of God, which is grounded in Israel's biblical tradition.

Experiencing God in Unexpected Places A Journey of Blessing Based on the Beatitudes
Category: Books > Spirituality > Spirituality Books
Author/Artist: COGHLAN PATRICK
ISBN-10: 1848678770
ISBN-13: 9781848678774
Publisher: Kevin Mayhew
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$39.95
Description: Aimed at a variety of readerships, Experiencing God in Unexpected Places is for those who want to know more about the meaning and significance of the Beatitudes, and to gain a greater understanding of the nature of joy and blessing.

The book will also help people who are coming to terms with difficult times, and all those who struggle to understand how we can experience God, his joy and blessing, even in the more negative situations in life – sometimes more so. Each Beatitude is divided into two halves. The first half is the challenge of the Beatitude, and the second half is the blessing of the Beatitude. The Appendix at the end of the resource invites and assists the reader to go on a physical journey of prayer, based on the Beatitudes.

Good Look at Evil
Category: Books > Theology > Moral Theology
Author/Artist: ROSENTHAL ABIGAIL L
ISBN-10: 1532616376
ISBN-13: 9781532616372
Publisher: Wipf & Stock
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$49.95
Description: We meet with evil in the ordinary course of experience, as we try to live our life stories. It’s not a myth. It’s a mysterious but quite real phenomenon. How can we recognise it? How can we learn to resist it?

Despite the claim of classical rationalists that evil is “ignorance,” evil-doers can be extremely intelligent, showing an understanding of ourselves that surpasses our own self-understanding. Meanwhile, contemporary philosophers portray good and evil as social constructs, which leaves us puzzled and powerless when we have to face the real thing. Thinkers like Hannah Arendt have construed evil as blind conformity to institutional roles but evil-doers have shown exceptional creativity in bending and reshaping institutions to conform to their will. A Good look at Evil maps the actual terrain—of lived ideas and situations—showing how to recognise evil for what it is: the perennial and present threat to a good life.

Along the way, Pope Francis discusses the sanctity of women’s rights and explains why fighting discrimination is the essence of loving thy neighbor.

The core ideas of Francis’s papacy—mercy, support for marginalized people, and diplomacy—shine through.

Heaven All Around Us Discovering God in Everyday Life
Category: Books > Spirituality > Spirituality Books
Author/Artist: HOLT SIMON CAREY
ISBN-10: 149827885X
ISBN-13: 9781498278850
Publisher: Cascade Books
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$34.95
Description: If living with a deep awareness of God in our lives is important, how do we do it without moving to a monastery? How do we discern and respond to God amidst the places, routines, and relationships of our everyday lives? In this book, we go in search of God's presence in homes and neighborhoods, supermarkets and sporting arenas, workplaces and weekends. Along the way we look for practices that can lead us more deeply into the way of Jesus: activities like cooking and laundry, walking and sleeping, shopping and conversation with friends. Throughout, we want to better understand how to make God a central part of our lives, and to hear Jesus' call to "follow me" more clearly in the world around us.
