The first biography of its kind about Desmond Tutu (with a foreword by the Dalai Lama and an afterword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu himself), this book introduces readers to Tutu’s spiritual life, his prayer life and his spiritual practices and examines how it shaped his commitment to restorative justice and reconciliation. It also shows how a living legend’s life can guide us during these times.
Desmond Tutu was a pivotal leader of the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa and remains a beloved and important emblem of peace and justice around the world. Even those who do not know the major events of Tutu’s life—receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984, serving as the first black archbishop of Cape Town and primate of Southern Africa from 1986−1996, and chairing the Truth and Reconciliation Commission from 1995−1998—recognize him as a charismatic political and religious leader who helped lay the foundations for a country ravaged by dehumanizing policies and practices by those who called themselves “Christian”. This book shows how the inner landscape of Tutu’s spirituality, the mystical grounding that spurred his outward accomplishments, often goes unseen.
Rather than recount his entire life story, this book explores Tutu’s spiritual life and contemplative practices—particularly Tutu’s understanding of Ubuntu theology, which emphasizes finding one’s identity and wholeness in community—and traces the powerful role they played in subverting the theological and spiritual underpinnings of colonialism and apartheid. Michael Battle’s personal relationship with Tutu grants readers an inside view of how Tutu’s spiritual agency cast a vision that both upheld the demands of justice and created a space of grace to synthesize the stark differences of a diverse society and help South Africans build a new community, new “samehorigheid”, and “Ubuntu”.

As the first woman, Eve was also the first woman who had to deal with
the mistakes of her past. In a dramatic reinterpretation of Eve’s story
in Genesis, Sarah Jakes Roberts shows how the slow seduction of our
minds can knock us out of our orbit. Pastor Sarah guides women in
identifying the dragons that have taken them down, then encourages
readers to get into a new orbit as she reminds them “enmity” is a
Woman Evolve teaches women that they can use failures and mistakes to break through to their future. Like Eve, they do not need to live defined by the past. Pastor Sarah says, “Bruised heels can still crush serpents’ heads.”

Die wêreld het meer sonneblommense nodig mense wat hulle koppe na die Son toe draai, mense wat meer en meer soos die Son wil wees eerder as giftige ivies, stink Afrikaners, stekelrige kaktusse, knieserige rosies of klaende hangkop wilgers.
Transformasie begin as ons ons deel begin doen en verantwoordelikheid aanvaar om ons negatiewe gedagtes elke dag bewustelik by die alomteenwoordige Son te vernuwe. Ons moet onsself daagliks toewy in die bestudering van die Meester Sonneblom se lieflike kwaliteite en meer van die vrug van sy liefdevolle genadige gees te kweek deur ons gedagtes by hom te vernuwe. Om ou negatiewe gewoontes en denke af te breek vra baie herhaling en volharding.
Kom ons maak dit ons doel om elke dag 'n rapsie meer na Jesus se voorbeeld van christenskap en menswees te lyk. Met hierdie 260 sonneblom dagstukkies nooi Susan jou uit na 'n avontuur van sonsoek al agter die Son aan.
Geniet die sonneblomreis.
Women everywhere marvel at those "good girls" in Scripture - Sarah, Mary, Esther - but on most days, that's not who they see when they look in the mirror. Most women (if they're honest) see the selfishness of Sapphira or the deception of Delilah. They catch a glimpse of Jezebel's take-charge pride or Eve's disastrous disobedience. Like Bathsheba, Herodias, and the rest, today's modern woman is surrounded by temptations, exhausted by the demands of daily living, and burdened by her own desires.
So what's a good girl to do? Learn from their lives, says beloved humor writer Liz Curtis Higgs, and by God's grace, choose a better path. In Bad Girls Of The Bible, Higgs offers a unique and clear-sighted approach to understanding those "other women" in Scripture, combining a contemporary retelling of their stories with a solid, verse-by-verse study of their mistakes and what lessons women today can learn from them.
Whether they were "Bad to the Bone," "Bad for a Season, but Not Forever" or only "Bad for a Moment," these infamous sisters show women how "not" to handle the challenges of life. With her trademark humor and encouragement, Liz Curtis Higgs teaches us how to avoid their tragic mistakes and joyfully embrace grace.
Dr Jerry Mofokeng wa Makhetha, beloved and award-winning actor, always felt like an outsider in his family. Not only did he not look like any of his brothers or sister, his mother told him how he was wailing as a baby when he was introduced to his father's family for the first time. At the age of 58 he discovers who his real father is. Suddenly his search for identity makes sense.
Dr Jerry gives the reader a glimpse into his family life, his children and his love for his wife. He writes humorously and poignantly about his career, sharing his wounds and his victories. Along the way he learnt some very important lessons about manhood.
This is a memoir, but also a challenge for men to take up their masculinity in a responsible way.

We all long to know God’s personal will for our lives. While we know God’s general guidance for our lives, we also want to discover how God is specifically calling us.
Discovering God’s Will for Your Life finds its starting point in the astonishing good news that God calls each one by name. It explores how this personal calling relates both to what God wants us to do and who God wants us to become.
In this guide, seasoned author Trevor Hudson provides practical ways in which you can discern God’s personal will for your own journey through life. As you practice these “discernment exercises”, your relationship with God will become a dynamic adventure of faith.
The Hard Good shows why the divine road that leads to God’s perfect plan for our lives is often paved with difficulties.
At our very core is the desire to be God’s woman or man—faithful, having fulfilled the potential God created in us. To reach that point, sometimes we have to endure hard things, things God has designed for good, to supernaturally shape us into the people he wants us to be. When we choose to accept the “hard good,” we discover our life’s purpose, and he promises to give us the joy and passion as our deepest longing is fulfilled.
The Hard Good is a powerful path to growth, as you learn to:
The Hard Good is a poignant and practical roadmap to help you find God’s true purpose for your life—a study in becoming the person God uniquely created you to be. With counsel from Scripture, which speaks into relevant and universal issues that touch each one of us, The Hard Good inspires and motivates you to discover the growth you have long desired as you search for your purpose in God’s perfect plan.

Why is suffering the common lot of all people everywhere - believers
and non-believers alike - and why does it seem that the world is out of
control when it comes to the problem of pain and suffering?
Christians are called to learn what it means to trust God in every circumstance, and to live for Him no matter what comes our way. It is essential to think more clearly about suffering, and to rearrange your priorities so that when your personal armageddons come, you will not be taken by surprise or be unprepared. Christian readers, pastors, Bible study leaders, and anyone questioning where God fits into suffering will find encouragement in this message of hope for a broken world.
What does healthy male spirituality look like? In From Wild Man to Wise Man, Father Richard Rohr explores masculinity and what it means to be a Christian man, offering a reflective and helpful guide to lead men to understand their wilderness as path to God's wisdom. Drawing on the four archetypes of masculinity, as well as Biblical examples, he explores what men need in order to develop a healthy, balanced male spirituality throughout their faith journey. He covers topics such as unresolved grief, expression of emotion and the stage of a man's life, offering an honest and compassionate structure to help men grow in their spirituality. From Wild Man to Wise Man is a book for any man wanting to explore the masculine side of his spirituality in a balanced way. It will be helpful for older men wanting to engage more deeply or in a new way with their spirituality, and for younger men just starting out on their journey of faith. It also includes an appendix with a structure for the book to be used by small groups. For anyone questioning what it means to be a man in our society today, From Wild Man to Wise Man will leave you with a nuanced, thoughtful understanding of male spirituality and a fresh perspective on modern masculinity and identity.
A universal pattern can be found in all societies and in fact in all of creation. We see it in the seasons of the year, the stories of Scripture, and even in our own lives. In The Wisdom Pattern, Father Richard Rohr illuminates the way understanding and embracing this pattern can give us hope in difficult times and the courage to push through messiness - and even great chaos - to find a new way of being in the world. A new version of his earlier book Hope Against Darkness, Father Rohr offers reflections in The Wisdom Pattern that bring together a deep spirituality with Jungian psychology. They have been thoroughly updated for today's world, and reveal a vision of Christianity that speaks to the heart of twenty-first century society. The Wisdom Pattern is a book for anyone looking to understand better the patterns in the world around us, and seeking hope for a divided and turbulent world. It will leave you with a vision for moving forward with faith and courage, as well as renewed empathy and compassion for those around you.
Who am I? Everyone asks that question, no matter their age or status in life. If we truly are supposed to be real with others, shouldn’t that start with learning how to be real with ourselves? We think so. But we have to be willing to look inside and ask, "Okay, God, who am I? What is it that I don’t see about myself that you see?"
A Book Called YOU will help us learn about:
Based on his widely successful teaching series "A Series Called You" and his personal experience using the Enneagram personality assessment tool in his marriage and other personal relationships, pastor Matt Brown offers a groundbreaking, entertaining, and heartfelt guide that highlights biblical truths alongside the Enneagram to help us better understand ourselves and how we relate to the people around us.
