Have you ever felt far away from God? Though many Christians are convinced they can't admit that, if you're feeling distant from God, you're not alone. In fact, honesty about divine distance is an important first step back to the presence of God. The truth is, we all go through seasons when prayers seem futile, worship feels empty, or we feel lonely, wondering if God cares or even knows what we're facing. When those seasons come and our familiar spiritual routines are no longer working, how can we recover the closeness with God that we crave? With transparency and a pastoral heart, Jamie Rasmussen reveals eight ways to navigate divine distance and experience the nearness of God again. After unpacking why God sometimes feels so far away, he mines the riches of the book of Esther for principles that are available to us today. The result is an intimate and practical guide to navigating seasons of divine distance so we can once again feel closer to God.

Not another book about what we already know, but one about what we overlook. In Ten Things They Never Told Me About Jesus John Bell explores facets of the personal life, relationships and ministry of Jesus which are seldom the stuff of preaching or conversation, but which are all rooted in the Gospels and are necessary if we are to be freed from the passive stereotypes which still dominate thinking about Christ. Much of the book is rooted in encounters with people on the periphery of religious life and in situations where politeness was not a prerequisite for discussing faith. John Bell is a member of the Iona Community, an ordained minister and an occasional broadcaster who lectures and preaches across the globe.

The issue of homosexuality has become one of the most contentious within the Christian church today. Urs Mattmann shows that the spiritual and indeed practical aims of gay and lesbian people are no different from those of others on the path of true spirituality throughout the ages; in fact, their particular lifestyles and experiences put them in a better position to work for good in the world. The author explores a mystic spirituality and describes numerous practical steps that gay men and women can take in order to connect with their innate spiritual nature and express it in their daily lives and relationships. He provides prayers, meditations, rituals, exercises and other suggestions to foster spiritual discovery. Addressing the unique gifts that gays and lesbians have to offer to the rest of us - 'queer' gifts not only for personal development but also for service in and to the world - this book shows how a relevant and liberating spirituality can enrich the lives of gay and lesbian people on a practical level. Urs Mattmann is a social worker and a Psychosynthesis counsellor who has studied theology and has a background in meditation. A member of an ecumenical Christian order, he has initiated a number of spiritual projects for gay and lesbian people, and also leads retreats, workshops and seminars.
