Richard Rohr is one of the great spiritual writers of our time, and he believes this is the most important book he's ever written
Spirituality is not a permanent high, a continual blissed out state. To experience the heights, one has also to know the depths. In this book based on speeches and sermons delivered in marquees, cathedrals and local churches, John Bell deals with issues as diverse as private devotion and public debt. The picture of God that emerges is not one of a 'celestial sadist' but rather a compassionate being who asks that we do only what we can, starting from where we are, to be just and compassionate too. John Bell is a minister of the Church of Scotland and a member of the Iona Community. He lectures and preaches throughout the English-speaking world. With his colleagues in the Wild Goose Worship Group he has produced several books of congregational songs and collections of anthems, and is an occasional broadcaster on radio and television.
Kan eet teruggeŰis word as heilige daad, deels met die wete dat jy nooit ge´soleerd 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.
