A Prophetic, Public Church: Witness to Hope Amid the Global Crises of the Twenty-First Century
Category: Books > Church > Church History
Author/Artist: DOAK, MARY
ISBN-10: 0814684505
ISBN-13: 9780814684504
Publisher: Liturgical Press
Price: AU$59.95
Description: Globalization is uniting the world more closely than ever before while at the same time increasing the likelihood of division and conflict. Humanity faces problems of an unprecedented scope: vast inequality, climate change threatening the conditions of life on this planet, and a great population migration that includes human trafficking and desperate refugees.

What does this global plight demand of a church called to be a sign and instrument of the union of all in God?

Mary Doak shows how the church must rectify its own historic failures to embody the unity-in-diversity it proclaims, especially with regard to women and Jews. Only then, and through responding to the demands of the current global crises, can we learn what it means to be the church; to be a prophetic witness and public agent of the harmony that God desires and the world deeply needs.

ISBN-13: 9781925501919
Publisher: Connor Court Publishing
Price: AU$29.95
Description: The 1960s era, with its Holdens, trams and Bex powders, was also a defining time for Australian Catholicism, with its Irish hymns, breezy hope, baby boomers, 'new Australians', sodalities and tombola and a looming cultural revolution.

This account tries to capture some of the spiritual and social ambience of those times, so poignant and unforgettable, for those who lived through it.

"This is a 'must read' for all Brigidines. A fabulous journey back into the past, an era of fun, hope and happiness, which we were privileged to receive." - Maureen O'Connor, teacher, psychologist, ex-Brigidine student.

Call It Grace: Finding Meaning in a Fractured World
Category: Books > Spirituality > Spirituality Books
Author/Artist: JONES, SERENE
ISBN-10: 0735223653
ISBN-13: 9780735223653
Publisher: Penguin Books
Price: AU$29.99
Description: "Theology is a place and a story. Theology is the place and story you think of when you ask yourself about the meaning of your life, of the world, and the possibility of God."

So begins Serene Jones's epic work of raw truth, fierce love, and spiritual teaching as muscular as the fractured soul of this century demands. With a voice that is at once frank and poetic, humble and prophetic, intimate and practical, Jones makes complex teachings around hatred, forgiveness, mercy, justice, death, sin, and grace understandable and immediately applicable for modern people.

Excavating the wisdom of great theological voices: Soren Kierkegaard, Reinhold Niebuhr, James Cone, Luce Irigaray, Saint Teresa of Avila, Call It Grace reveals Serene Jones as a towering voice of a new, and urgently necessary, public theology for this century.
