Mysticism is not just for recluses: it is a totally practical path in the world that we all can choose. The mystic tradition teaches us that God is inherent in everything. What does this mean for the way we relate to creation with all its inhabitants and to the environment? How do we discover the presence of God within ourselves? How do we let compassion and commitment to justice characterise our lives so that we can practise mysticism in action? Annika Spalde writes powerfully from her own experience, highlighting women who have followed the path of mysticism. Julian of Norwich, Mechthild of Magdeburg and others help us understand what it is to open ourselves up to God's intense love for creation. She also explores female images of God, liberation from consumerism, and working for justice against violence and oppression. Exercises are included to help the reader practise spirituality in everyday life.

Kan eet teruggeëis word as heilige daad, deels met die wete dat jy nooit geďsoleerd is nie, selfs al voel dit so?
Hedendaagse verbruikerskultuur vergeet die onsigbare, minag die ontasbare en maak ’n bespotting van die geringe. Is daar ’n lewegewende alternatief vir hierdie kultuur? Ons kan dit verander deur Christelike spiritualiteit en die keuse om aandagtig en bewustelik te lewe. Jy kan dit doen by ’n tafel – jy kan ’n sinnelose, bedwelmde bestaan ontkom en jy kan sien en hoor wat jy nooit sal sien en hoor as jy slegs ’n gewone verbruiker bly nie. Begin deur bewustelik te eet. Kyk na jou bord, asem die reuke in, kyk saam met wie eet jy, besef dat iets moes sterf vir daardie kos om op jou bord te beland, hetsy ’n hoender of ’n wortel. Die tafel is die verbindingsplek, met jouself, die natuur, met ander mense en met God. Kry balans in alles – moenie te veel eet nie, moenie te min eet nie, eet van alles, eet volhoubaar.
First Things' Year in Books For many people, the word theology evokes something dry, academic, irrelevant and disconnected from the everyday concerns of life. We surely would not say that about God, so why is our talk about God any different? In this engaging and accessible introduction, Keith Johnson takes a fresh look at theology. He presents the discipline of theology as one of the ways we participate in the life of the triune God. Without suggesting it should be removed from the academy, Johnson argues that theology has to be integrally connected to the traditions and practices of the church. If academic theology is to be genuinely theological, then it has to be carried out in obedience to Jesus Christ and in service to the church. Unlike other introductions, Theology as Discipleship avoids the usual overview of doctrines according to the creed, which traditionally move from the Trinity to eschatology. Johnson instead explains the content of theology by describing the Christian life--being in Christ, hearing God's Word, sharing the mind of Christ. Theology not only leads to discipleship, but is itself a way of following after Christ in faith.

Biblically sound and supported, best-selling author and pastor Dr. Joe Ibojie discusses in detail topics including:
- God speaks to everyone, but not in the same way.
- God speaks in dreams and visions.
- God speaks in clear language.
- God speaks in riddles or parables.
- God speaks in dark speeches
“Everyone should strive to sharpen all the methods by which God communicates, while mastering the dominant way of receiving from God. When you avoid stereotyping God’s avenues of communication, you open great potentials to hear from Him.” -Dr. Joe Ibojie
Prayer is an essential of the Christian life. Yet confusion abounds, and we have a tendency to make it more complicated than Jesus ever intended. Going back to the basics, bestselling author and pastor Jack Hayford shows that prayer is person-to-Person communication--a combination of worship, fellowship, and intercession.
He shows that the Bible's call to prayer is neither mystical nor theoretical, and he gives seven simple steps, as outlined by Jesus, on how to pray. He also gives three keys to effective asking in prayer and attacking through prayer. Prayer is not intended to be mysterious, Hayford says, but down-to-earth and practical. To live in the spirit of prayer is learning to walk in the presence of Jesus. Always.

The subject matter of Richard Skinner's poetry starts with the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the Garden of Eden and concludes with the events of the first Easter, taking in on the way Julian of Norwich's hazelnut, Mastermind, God as a blizzard, and the eighth deadly sin. A psalm based on the New Testament and a modern take on Epiphany are included, along with a dozen new `Invocations'. Both witty and reflective, the poems will appeal to a wide range of readers. Colliding with God, and wearing no seat-belt, he suffered extensive injuries to his life. They say he is not the same man since the accident. God, too, did not escape unscathed, but received nasty wounds to his hands and feet, and a deep laceration in his side. His condition is said to be critical, and a full recovery is unlikely. Neither party is covered by insurance. About the author: A Londoner by upbringing, Richard moved to Devon in 1975 to write a novel which remains as unpublishable now as it was then. Several collections of his poetry have, however, been published, including Invocations (WGP 2005). A former member of Cambridge University Footlights, he also occasionally writes and performs sketch-based comedy; and in recent years he has enjoyed a collaboration with composer Nigel Walsh, being the lyricist for their musical Bethlehem!, several liturgical pieces, and a number of songs. He and his wife are members of the Anglican parish of Central Exeter.
Elke Christen het ankers nodig, iets wat hulle vashou aan God om te keer dat hulle lewensbootjie op die rotse loop. Die bekende sangeres Nadine Blom wys die ankers waaraan ons moet vashou vir ons uit – maar wys ook watter goed wat ons vashou ons moet laat los.
Popular myths about angels are all around us. Do people become angels when they die? Are they always hovering nearby, on guard to protect us from danger? Can we talk to them? Many of our ideas about angels come from TV and movies, both of which are more interested in ratings and ticket sales than in truth. As Christians it's important to understand what angels really are. Pastor Jack Graham walks readers through Scripture to show what we know about angels and their roles as worshipers of the Lord, witnesses to his glory, and warriors fighting on his behalf. But this book focuses on application as well as knowledge. Not only will it separate fact from fiction, but it will also encourage you to become a better worshiper, warrior, and witness in your own right.
Richard Rohr is renowned for his compassionate teaching on masculinity and male spirituality
Brilliantly connects all the dots of Richard Rohr's teaching
A classic Richard Rohr title for those wishing to become more contemplative and compassionate
Die Evangelie van Thomas is deel van die geskrifte wat in 1945 naby die Egiptiese dorp Nag Hammadi ontdek is deur ’n paar kleinboere wat besig was om vir bemestingstof te grawe. Die teks bevat gesegdes van Jesus waarvan maar sowat veertig persent ook in die drie sinoptiese Evangelies (Matteus, Markus en Lukas) voorkom – en dit is daarom 'n besonder interessante geskrif om naas die Bybel te bestudeer. Voor die ontdekking van die Nag Hammadi-geskrifte en die ontdekking van ’n volledige Koptiese teks (die ou Egiptiese taal, wat sedert die dae van die Ptolemeiese koningshuis met Griekse letters geskryf is) is 'n paar flentertjies papirus met dele van hierdie Evangelie in Grieks op 'n ashoop by Oxyrynchus in Egipte gevind. Hierdie tekste sowel as fragmente van die Matteus-evangelie is die oudste Christelike dokumente wat ooit gevind is.
