Art of Thomas Merton A Divine Vision in Words and Images
Category: Books > Spirituality > Thomas Merton
Author/Artist: MOSES JOHN
ISBN-10: 1632531844
ISBN-13: 9781632531841
Publisher: Franciscan Media
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$31.95
Description: This inspiring anthology allows Merton to speak for himself, offering both an introduction to his thought and an aid to private devotion, a signpost for our personal journeys of discernment and encounter. The Art of Thomas Merton brings together entries from Merton's journals, extracts from his letters, quotations from his books and his countless articles, and lines from his poetry.
But what truly sets this collection apart is the inclusion of his abstract drawings, exercises in quiet reflection that convey something of the awareness through silence that he was always eager to explore. The drawings invite us to stop, and reflect, and surprise ourselves by new depths of awareness and understanding.
This is not a book to speed-read, to read for study or for the acquisition of knowledge. No, it demands for the words to be read, and the images gazed upon, in the manner of the practice of Lectio Divina, allowing God to speak to you by reading and looking attentively, peacefully, and reflectively until a word, phrase, or image strikes the imagination or the heart.
May you find in the words and drawings of this anthology something of the divine passion--God's search for us and our search for God--that lay at the heart of Merton's journey and of all that he had to say.

Author/Artist: O'LEARY DANIEL
ISBN-10: 1782183248
ISBN-13: 9781782183242
Publisher: Columba Press
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$36.99
Description: Think well before starting on this book. It is an invitation. It will take you in many directions. Much of it may be new to you. But it will not be new to your heart. Your heart is already familiar with the mysteries we will be exploring. It will recognise the beauty. But your mind needs to escape from the frames and constraints of many past, flawed teachings. So keep your eyes wide open and free as you read. The book is a call to you to stretch your thoughts, emotions and imagination in many ways. There will be ideas about the world and God and yourself that will both trouble and delight your spirit. There will be resistance and confusion. There has to be. There is no other way to widen and deepen your faith-understanding. But it will transform your life. Read the book as you would read a love-letter from God.

Drawing Closer to Christ A Self-Guided Icon Retreat
Category: Books > Spirituality > Spirituality Books
Author/Artist: MALHAM JOSEPH
ISBN-10: 1594717575
ISBN-13: 9781594717574
Publisher: Ave Maria Press
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$32.95
Description: Follow along step-by-step with internationally acclaimed iconographer Joseph Malham as he takes you through an eight-day, self-guided contemplative retreat to create your own icon of the Christ Pantocrator (Ruler of All). In Drawing Closer to Christ, Malham relies on his twenty years of teaching experience to walk you through the materials and techniques needed to create your own sacred image.

Using the ancient icon Christ Pantocrator as your pattern, you will learn how to enter into the process of tracing the icon into the wood, applying gold leafing to the halo around Christ's head, and blending the paint to create beautiful colours that radiate holiness. Malham provides a list of supplies needed for each stage and step-by-step directions with detailed photographs. The first seven days of the retreat follow the rhythm of the Genesis account of creation. On the eight day, you'll learn that while the finished icon represents the personality of the artist, it is still Christ. You will be transformed by your sacred image.

God's Own Ethics Norms of Divine Agency and the Argument from Evil
Category: Books > Theology > Moral Theology
Author/Artist: MURPHY MARK C
ISBN-10: 0198796919
ISBN-13: 9780198796916
Publisher: Oxford University Press
Binding: HARDBACK
Price: AU$89.95
Description: Every version of the argument from evil requires a premise concerning God's motivation - about the actions that God is motivated to perform or the states of affairs that God is motivated to bring about. The typical source of this premise is a conviction that God is, obviously, morally perfect, where God's moral perfection consists in God's being motivated to act in accordance with the norms of morality by which both we and God are governed.

The aim of God's Own Ethics is to challenge this understanding by giving arguments against this view of God as morally perfect and by offering an alternative account of what God's own ethics is like. According to this alternative account, God is in no way required to promote the well-being of sentient creatures, though God may rationally do so. Any norms of conduct that favor the promotion of creaturely well-being that govern God's conduct are norms that are contingently self-imposed by God. This revised understanding of divine ethics should lead us to revise sharply downward our assessment of the force of the argument from evil while leaving intact our conception of God as an absolutely perfect being, supremely worthy of worship.

For a Missionary Reform of the Church The Civilta Cattolica Seminar
Category: Books > Church > Church History
Author/Artist: SPADARO ANTONIO (ED)
ISBN-10: 0809153483
ISBN-13: 9780809153480
Publisher: Paulist Press
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$89.99
Description: In the Fall of 2015, the Jesuit periodical La Civiltà Cattolica hosted a seminar in Rome on the theme "reform of the Church and reforms in the Church". Participants were an international group of men and women, experts in the fields of ecclesiology, history, ecumenism, canon law, and pastoral theology. The objective is to present an articulated set of stimuli and proposals for the deepening and continuation of the reform of the Catholic Church through concrete reforms in the Church. In these thirty essays, the authors explore the issue Ecclesia semper reformanda - the Church must continually reform - starting from the renewal called for by the Second Vatican Council in the Church's structure and expression of doctrine. Rather than provide mere reflections, the participants also offered concrete suggestions for action and reform. It covers both the re-form of personal and communal Christian life and the transformation of ecclesial structures.

With the publication of these essays, it is hoped that the reflections of the participants will reach a wider audience and inspire others to think about the issues related to ecclesial renewal and make their own contributions to the dialogue.

ISBN-13: 9780802854896
Publisher: Wm Eerdmans
Binding: HARDBACK
Price: AU$35.95
Description: This charming depiction of dealing with anger via exercise cleverly offers a participatory feature. When friends Bobby (a panda) and William (a brown, whiskered dog) have an argument, William tells Bobby to "Go on! Just get on your bike and leave!" Filled with anger, Bobby does. He rides through town and into the countryside, through other towns and by a canal. As each scene changes, he grouses resentfully about "buffle-brained," "pudding-headed" William and asks himself, "Where should I go now?" Of course, he ends up back at William's house, the anger gone, full of the sights he's seen and ready with plans to ride with his friend the next day.

With mesmerizing illustrations, this vibrant book offers a sensitive, realistic portrayal of a conflict ... and a compromise.
