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.
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.

In our age of instant gratification and if-it-feels-good-do-it attitudes, self-discipline is hardly a popular notion. Yet it may be one of the most important lost virtues of our time. In Joyful Surrender, former missionary and beloved author Elisabeth Elliot offers her understanding of discipline and its value for people of all times. She shows readers how to - discipline the mind, body, possessions, time, and feelings - overcome anxiety - change poor habits and attitudes - trust God in times of trial and hardship - let Christ have control in all areas of life Elliot masterfully and gently takes readers through Scripture, personal stories, and incisive observations of the world around her to help them discover the understanding that our fulfillment as human beings depends on our answer to God's call to obedience.

The green heart on the underside of the tiny snowdrop flower, which so captured Kate's imagination, symbolised for her an aspect of God's purpose for our lives, as did so much else in her surroundings. Her passion for the integrity of creation and right relationship with the environment, in city or countryside, and with one another clearly provided inspiration for her writing. The wonderful inclusiveness of her work reflects an ecumenical outlook in the truest sense.

Letters to Marc About Jesus is a beautiful collection of Henri Nouwen's very intimate and very enlightening writings to Marc, his nineteen-year-old nephew, who struggles to find his true path in a world of confusion and apathy. Written with Nouwen's characteristic grace and wisdom, these letters bear witness to his conviction that anyone can find lasting spiritual fulfillment if they simply take the time to maintain a daily awareness of Jesus in every aspect of life. Powerful and profound, Letters to Marc About Jesus is Nouwen at his best--teacher, guide, and mentor--and will provide the direction and inspiration necessary for any believer to change his or her life.
A book of moral and religious reflections written by a Carolingian noblewoman for her teenage son in the middle of the 9th century. Intended as a guide to right conduct, the book was to be shared in time with William's younger brother. Dhuoda's situation was poignant. Her husband, Bernard, the count of Septimania, was away and she was separated from her children. William was being held by Charles the Bald as a guarantee of his father's loyalty, and the younger son's whereabouts were unknown. As war raged in the crumbling Carolingian Empire, the grieving mother, fearing for the spiritual and physical welfare of her absent sons, began in 841 to write her loving counsel in a handbook. Two years later she sent it to William. The book memorably expresses Dhuoda's maternal feelings, religious fervor and learning. In teaching her children how they might flourish in God's eyes, as well as humanity's, Dhuoda reveals the authority of Carolingian women in aristocratic households. She dwells on family relations, social order, the connection between religious and military responsibility, and, always, the central place of Christian devotion in a noble life. One of the few surviving texts written by a woman in the Middle Ages, Dhuoda's ""Liber manualis"" was available in only two faulty Latin manuscripts until a third, superior one was discovered in the 1950s. This English translation is based on the 1975 critical edition and French translation by Pierre Riche. Now available for the first time in paperback, it includes an afterword written by Carol Neel that takes into account recent scholarship and the 1991 revised edition of Riche's text.
A new, but ancient, way to pray can turn your life around. Discover how to experience God's love at your core, freeing you to love others, and even yourself. When biblical scholar and coach Brian Russell discovered centering prayer at a difficult crossroad in his life, he had no idea how his life would change. "Sensing God's love for me has been so transformational that it almost feels as though I've experienced conversion all over again," he writes. He became calmer, less anxious, less reactive, freed of past wounds, and a better listener in the presence of others. Centering prayer, also known as the prayer of silence, helps you quiet your mind from the constant thoughts and impulses, and frees your true self to experience more of God's love in the very core of your being. This inviting guide gives you practical tools to make centering prayer a consistent habit in your life, gives the history and theological foundation for the practice, and helps identify and overcome common obstacles. Beginners, as well as seasoned practitioners, will gain inspiration, rich insight, and practical knowledge of a contemplative prayer practice that can open you up to deep experiences of inner healing and peace.
