Thomas Aquinas: A Historical, Theological, and Environmental Portrait
Author/Artist: PRUDLO, DONALD
ISBN-10: 0809153866
ISBN-13: 9780809153862
Publisher: Paulist Press
Price: AU$71.99
Description: Written by an emerging historian, theologian engaged in research on the Order of Preachers, Donald Prudlo considers Thomas as a man, as a Christian, as a mystic, and as a saint.

Using the most recent scholarship on the thirteenth century, on the Dominican order, and on sainthood, this biography embeds Thomas in the lived context of his time and place. It approaches Thomas as an imperial aristocrat, as a poor mendicant, as a promising student, and as a religious. While Thomas's brilliance is clear, it is contrasted by the upheaval brought both by his mendicancy and his adherence to Aristotle in the medieval university.

This is a readable and approachable biography that focuses on Thomas the man and not chiefly on his intellectual achievements. People who think they know Thomas will be surprised by him, and intrigued by the fascinating character who became the greatest theologian of the Middle Ages.

Caring for Our Common Home: A Practical Guide to Laudato Si'
ISBN-10: 0809154471
ISBN-13: 9780809154470
Publisher: Paulist Press
Price: AU$36.99
Description: What makes Pope Francis’s encyclical Laudato Sí' so unique is how deeply it connects the cries of the poor with the cries of Earth. Thanks to his Latin American background, where the effects of environmental degradation have long been felt, Pope Francis recognised the urgency of addressing the Earth’s deterioration and an aspect of Catholic social teaching that had not been articulated fully enough: care of creation. Today, there is no other way to love God and love our neighbours as ourselves.

This interactive text exposes some of the problems we are facing. It engages with the theology of Laudato Sí', and offers a way for people of faith to move from theory to a practical and faithful commitment to creation as set forth by the gospel.

Directory for Catechesis
ISBN-10: 1925494535
ISBN-13: 9781925494532
Publisher: St Pauls Publications
Price: AU$29.95
Description: This new Directory for Catechesis represents the work of over 80 experts over 5 years. It reflects a dynamic renewal in catechesis and incorporates the magisterial wisdom of the most recent episcopal Synods and Pope Francis’s apostolic exhortation Evangelii Gaudium.

The Directory places catechetical instruction and formation of catechetical teachers clearly within the realm of evangelisation. It offers guidelines to assist in the creation of local directories and catechisms and clarifies the importance of catechetical renewal in Christian communities.

The Directory will be indispensable for bishops and those responsible for formal religious instruction, including priests, religious education teachers in dioceses, parishes, and schools. It will also aid directors of formation who train the faithful in the forms of catechesis, including seminary rectors, directors of formation for the permanent diaconate, and lay ecclesial ministers.

Put on Christ: Life as Discipleship
Author/Artist: PITTA, ANTONIO
ISBN-10: 080915479X
ISBN-13: 9780809154791
Publisher: Paulist Press
Price: AU$29.99
Description: The traditional Christian spirituality of imitation of Christ seems to have fallen out of favour due to misunderstanding. Today, we are reluctant to imitate anyone. We want to be our original selves, but we forget that imitation is part of human nature.

In his letter to the Galatians, and elsewhere, Paul makes bold use of the metaphor of clothing, not in the sense where an actor would put on a theatrical costume to create a character, but to underline the deep intimacy shared between the risen Christ and us, his disciples.

The book encourages us to be one with Christ, removing the boundaries between Jew and Greek, slave and free, and any barriers between men and women.

Rediscovering God: And Why We Never Have to Look
ISBN-10: 0809155184
ISBN-13: 9780809155187
Publisher: Paulist Press
Price: AU$36.99
Description: Fr. Zacharias Heyes invites us to walk a new path toward rediscovering God amid our everyday life.
Our journey begins with biblical figures and the experiences they have with God. These are key experiences.

In Jesus we can then see: God is not only close by, he is not only with us, he is in us, he has become man and as such tangible to all.

Discovering God within ourselves and each other challenges the Church to embark on a journey as well: to be with people in everyday encounters. The consequences of this are far reaching for services, for rituals, and for the shape that the Church takes today.
