Church Faith Future What We Face What We Can Do
Category: Books > Church > Church History
Author/Artist: CAMELI LOUIS J
ISBN-10: 0814645658
ISBN-13: 9780814645659
Publisher: Liturgical Press
Price: AU$32.95
Description: In this challenging but hopeful new book, Fr. Louis J. Cameli renders a carefully composed portrait of the church in North America today. Drawing on philosophy, history, cultural analysis, and sociology, he offers a sobering picture of where church and faith stand in our society and where they seem to be headed. Identifying several possible ways forward, Fr. Cameli points out the way he sees as the most promising and most faithful to Catholic tradition.

In a fascinating afterword to the book, Cardinal Blase Cupich enters into dialogue with Fr. Cameli's thinking, describing how the Archdiocese of Chicago has begun to address the issues and the directions indicated.

Deep Woods Wild Waters A Memoir
Category: Books > Biographies > Biographies
Author/Artist: WOOD DOUGLAS
ISBN-10: 0816631735
ISBN-13: 9780816631735
Publisher: University of Minnesota
Price: AU$33.99
Description: Wait, young Douglas's grandfather says as the bobber twitches on the surface of Little Lake. Be patient. And so begins an encounter with the promise and wonder of nature that will last a lifetime. Deep Woods, Wild Waters traces the winding path that carried Douglas Wood from one wonder to the next, through a landscape of rocks, woods, and waters, with stops along the way for questions and reflections that link human nature to the larger mysteries of the natural world. Like life itself, the author's way is not linear. One landmark leads back to a favorite campsite, another prompts him to consider the ‘gospel of rocks,’ another launches him into the wilderness beyond the stars - a contemplation of time and space and humanity's place in all of it.
The creator of thirty-four books, including the classic Old Turtle, and an expert woodsman and wilderness canoe guide, Wood brings all his storytelling and bushwhacking skills to bear as he takes us hurtling down wild rapids, crossing stormy lakes, or simply navigating the treacherous currents and twisty trails of everyday life. A warm, generous, and knowing guide, Wood maps a journey that, as he says, ‘anyone can take, through a landscape anyone can know.’ Turning the pages, hiking the portages, running the rapids, or scanning the wild country from high promontory, he invites us to say, in a soul-satisfying moment of recognition, ‘I know that place.’

ISBN-10: 0733338283
ISBN-13: 9780733338281
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers
Price: AU$29.99
Description: Practical help for teenagers navigating negative emotions, stress and self-defeating behaviour. Although most of us pay little attention to our emotions, feelings like anxiety, anger, frustration, guilt and sadness can have a huge impact on our lives. Sometimes we get stuck in negative ways of thinking that perpetuate these emotions, even when what is happening in our lives is not that bad.
Teenage years can be a particularly challenging time. There are lots of changes happening – physical, social and mental, and emotional ups and downs are common. Upsetting emotions can lead to self-defeating behaviours, such as avoidance, irritability, withdrawal and brooding.
While our emotions seem to have a life of their own, there are actually lots of things we can do to affect them. Learning skills to manage unhelpful emotions can make our lives much easier, now and into the future. They can also help us to get back on track more quickly when things go wrong.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an approach used by therapists all over the world to help people learn to think in a healthy and balanced way, and to bounce back more quickly from stressful events. It provides techniques to help overcome stress, negative emotions and self-defeating behaviour. Bestselling author of Change Your Thinking, Sarah Edelman, and Louise Rémond, a specialist in therapy for teenagers, explain how to use these skills with clarity and compassion.
The book contains plenty of real-life examples, practical tools and exercises. These strategies have a proven track record, and are valuable skills for a happier and more confident life.

Lord Renew Your Wonders Spiritual Gifts for Today

Author/Artist: STAYNE DAMIAN
ISBN-10: 1593253230
ISBN-13: 9781593253233
Publisher: Word Among US Press
Price: AU$28.95
Description: At the beginning of the Second Vatican Council, Blessed Pope John XXIII offered a prayer asking the Holy Spirit to renew your wonders in our time, as though for a new Pentecost. The rediscovery of the charismatic gifts by ordinary Catholics throughout the world was an answer to that prayer. Damian Stayne, who is known internationally for his healing ministry, shows readers how spiritual gifts such as prophecy and healing were used by Jesus, the early Church, and the saints and why we need them operating in the Church today. He provides not only amazing stories of God's presence and work in our time but also a host of practical instructions on how to grow in these gifts. This book is both inspiring and a challenge to Catholics to be open to the gifts of the Spirit in order to bring others to Christ.

Author/Artist: LEWIS C S
ISBN-10: 0008254591
ISBN-13: 9780008254599
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers
Price: AU$32.99
Description: One of the most popular and beloved introductions to the concept of faith ever written, ‘Mere Christianity' has sold millions of copies worldwide. This Special 65th Anniversary Edition brings together C.S. Lewis's legendary radio broadcasts during the war years, in which he set out simply to ‘explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times'.

Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity's many denominations, Mere Christianity provides an unequalled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to absorb a powerful, rational case for the Christian faith.

Soul's Code In Search of Character and Calling
Category: Books > Psychology > Psychology Books
Author/Artist: HILLMAN JAMES
ISBN-10: 0399180141
ISBN-13: 9780399180149
Publisher: Ballantine Books
Price: AU$33.95
Description: While philosophers and psychologists from Plato to Jung have studied and debated the fundamental essence of our individuality, our modern culture refuses to accept that a unique soul guides each of us from birth, shaping the course of our lives. In this book, James Hillman presents a brilliant vision of our selves, and an exciting approach to the mystery at the center of every life that asks, “What is it, in my heart, that I must do, be, and have? And why?”

Drawing on the biographies of figures such as Ella Fitzgerald and Mohandas K. Gandhi, Hillman argues that character is fate, that there is more to each individual than can be explained by genetics and environment. The result is a reasoned and powerful road map to understanding our true nature and discovering an eye-opening array of choices—from the way we raise our children to our career paths to our social and personal commitments to achieving excellence in our time.

Wealth Wages and the Wealthy New Testament Insight for Preachers and Teachers
Category: Books > Theology > Theology Books
ISBN-10: 0814687849
ISBN-13: 9780814687840
Publisher: Michael Glazier
Price: AU$59.95
Description: Fulfilling what he has called a "grave responsibility," Pope Francis has often addressed the issue of economic inequality and the use of personal, corporate, and national wealth. Francis' teaching is rooted in the teaching of Jesus, preserved in the pages of the New Testament. The Bible has more to say about the use of wealth than it does about other moral issues of our day, yet this teaching seldom enters into the conscience of believers. In Wealth, Wages, and the Wealthy Fr. Raymond F. Collins redresses this issue and provides the reader with a careful examination not only of what Jesus said about wealth but also of what each of the New Testament authors wrote about the topic.
