1 Come, Holy Spirit, renew the whole creation: six Bible studies on the theme of the Seventh Assembly of the World Council of Churches
Australia Joint Board of Christian Education 1989 0858197782 / 9780858197787 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
108 pages including b/w illustrations. "Come, Holy Spirit - Renew the Whole Creation." That prayer is the theme chosen for the Seventh Assembly of the World Council of Churches, which will meet in Canberra, Australia, 7 to 20 February 1991. Presented in this book are six Bible studies around the Assembly theme. Beginning with our confession of faith in the Holy Spirit, we go on to study the theme as a whole, and the four sub-themes which provide the link between our confession and the demands it makes on us as we try to live our faith from day to day. Included in each study is a wealth of comments and testimonies from friends in many parts of the world. By being involved in these studies as groups of Christian people, all of us can prepare for and contribute to the Canberra Assembly - and allow the renewal we pray for to start with us in our congregation and our local community.

Good God, he's green! A history of Tasmanian politics 1989 to 1996, Armstrong, Lance
2 Armstrong, Lance Good God, he's green! A history of Tasmanian politics 1989 to 1996
Australia Pacific Law Press 1997 1875192085 / 9781875192083 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
159 pages including b/w illustrations. This is Lance Armstrong's fifth book. Three of the previous four books were on justice and peace issues which, he says, are an integral part of the Green agenda. Following many years of political activism through the Green movement, Lance Armstrong was elected to the Tasmanian House of Assembly in May 1989. Soon after his election, he became one of the five Green Members of Parliament to sign the historic Accord agreement with the Tasmanian Labour Party. He was re-elected in 1992, but lost his parliamentary seat in 1996 by the narrowest of margins. Indeed, the recount that was granted to him set a historical precedent - being the only recount that has been granted in the history of the Hare-Clarke proportional voting system, dating back to 1909. Lance Armstrong is also an ordained minister of the Uniting Church of Australia, having been ordained in 1974. He says that it is his theological understanding of the Christian Faith, his faith convictions, that has led him to identify so strongly with the Green movement. Since October 1996, he has been working again as a parish minister at St. David's Uniting Church, in Albury NSW. He has kept up his active interest in Green politics and is now also the Convenor of the Albury-Wodonga Environment Centre.

Amazing Love, Barker, Ken

Australia Connor Court Publishing Pty Ltd 2012 1921421665 / 9781921421662 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
157 pages. "With an engaging blend of scriptural reflection, theological investigation and very personal and human stories of struggle, confusion and journeys in faith, Father Ken Barker has provided his readers with a very real reason to live their lives in hope. Over and over again he shows us that the basis for this hope is Jesus Christ. As Father Barker insists, however, there is a world of difference between knowing about Christ and knowing Christ. It is when we encounter him as a living presence in our lives today, rather than simply an interesting and perhaps inspiring figure from the past, that our lives begin to be transformed by his saving grace. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know Jesus better, love him more and serve him with generosity and courage." - Archbishop Timothy Costelloe SDB - Archbishop of Perth. Fr Ken Barker is the founder of the Missionaries of God's Love, a new emerging congregation in the Australian Church. He is a well-known conference speaker, involved in charismatic renewal, Disciples of Jesus Community, Young Men of God Movement, and various other youth ministries. He is the author of the books Becoming Fire, A Radical way of Love, Young Men Rise Up, and His Name is Mercy. Creases and wear.

Feminist Experiences: The Women's Movement in Four Cultures, Bassnett, Susan
5 Bassnett, Susan Feminist Experiences: The Women's Movement in Four Cultures
UK Unwin Hyman 1986 0043012744 / 9780043012741 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
194 indexed pages. The Women's Movement is usually referred to as if it were a constant, global phenomenon. There are women's movements in Europe, North and South America, Africa, the Middle East, India, Japan and Australia, and many women and men assume that they are regional manifestations of the same thing, and share a common core. Susan Bassnett has lived and been involved in the struggles of the women's movement in the United States, Italy and the United Kingdom, and has had extensive contacts with feminists in the German Democratic Republic. On the basis of her personal experiences and study of women's history and literature in these countries she is able to present a striking picture of the variety of feminist aims, tactics and priorities in the four countries, and of the character of the women's movement in four very different cultures. In Italy, she focuses on the violence of the women's movement e" its intellectualism and energy. In analysing the American women's movement she dwells on its roots in the past, and its faith in pragmatic solutions. The GDR presents completely different questions, hinging on the relationship between state socialism and feminism. In the UK, Susan Bassnett finds herself returning to that all-pervasive aspect of British life e" class, and its importance for feminists. Throughout, the author writes with a double commitment: first, to furthering our understanding of the diversity of aims of women's movements and their common ground e" the no-mane(tm)s land of female existence; second, to making her book as accessible as possible to all feminists, through drawing on her own personal experience of countries in which she has lived, worked, travelled, and made friends. There is a name in the front fly.

9 Burnett, Bruce; Daphne Meadmore; Gordon Tait New Questions for Contemporary Teachers: Taking a Socio-Cultural Approach to Education
Australia Pearson 2004 1741032261 / 9781741032260 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 8vo 
170 indexed pages including bibliography. There is highlighting in some pages. New Questions for Contemporary Teachers: taking a socio-cultural approach to education is an introductory overview of sociology of education. Typically taught as a compulsory subject in education programs, the book covers the needs of both primary and secondary student teachers. From the same team that authored Understanding Education and Practising Education, this title comprises all new chapters reflecting current sociological and educational perspectives. It is divided into three distinctive sections: How to govern? Do we all get a fair go? and Where Now? * Section 1 examines the mechanisms of governance and rejects the simplistic "domination and coercion" model of the exercise of power. Each chapter within the section explores the ways in which social management occurs through careful and targeted regulation. * Section 2 investigates the questions about how society distributes wealth and access without lapsing into reductionism. It focuses on how notions such as "cultural capital" and "habitus" shape educational outcomes. * Section 3 examines the issues relevant to the future of education such as the advances in technology, the role the government plays in implementing school-based management practices and ways in which schools can become more globalised and become far more multi-national, multi-faith and multi-cultural geographic communities. Table of Contents: 1. Why ask new questions? Gordon Tait Part 1 - How do we govern? 2. What is the relationship between social governance and schooling? Gordon Tait 3.

Australia Picador 1993 0330272942 / 9780330272940 Reprint Soft Cover Good 12mo 
291 browning pages. 'A powerful and compassionate re-evaluation of our society and the meaning of life and death.' ANDREW KENNON, THE AGE. Gabrielle Carey left Australia to see the world at her father’s urging. In Ireland she found a powerful affinity with the religious and political culture. In a pueblo in Mexico she found love, a home and a new family. And while she was away, she also found her father. A brilliant, obsessive man, Alex Carey had been too preoccupied with causes to spend much time with his family, but while Gabrielle was overseas, their correspondence brought them close for the first time. It was Alex - the committed humanist and atheist - who understood her interest in Catholicism and native Indian religion; Alex who inspired her decision to settle in a Third World country. After the birth of her daughter Gabrielle travelled again: this time to retum to Australia to see her family. The day before she arrived, Alex Carey committed suicide. In this book is Gabrielle Carey’s attempt to find out why. Part eulogy, part accusation, it is a moving last letter from a loving daughter. The grief of Irish wakes, the celebration of Mexican vigils and the fear of Australian Anglo-Saxon funerals: In My Father's House is also an exploration of how different cultures deal with death. 'A remarkably moving and illuminating examination of the nature of faith, morality, grief and death.' GILES HUGO, THE HOBART MERCURY. Over 20mm extra postage charges may apply.

Australia Penguin 1987 014009752X / 9780140097528 Reprint Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
276 indexed pages. No world-wide institution has changed as quickly and as radically as the Roman Catholic Church in recent years, yet it remains a paradox. Many people see it as a reactionary force while others experience it as a powerful movement towards spiritual renewal and radical social and political change. With wide experience of the full-time ministry, Paul Collins explains the extraordinary change that has swept over the Church and the important issues facing the Australian Catholic community now. This is a hook for everyone who seeks to understand how an institution that has shaped our culture is wrestling to adjust to the future. The author has a master’s degree in theology from Harvard University and a Ph.D. in history from the Australian National University (ANU). He has taught church history and theology in Australia, the United States and Pacific countries and has worked as a Catholic parish priest in Sydney and Hobart. In March 2001 he resigned from his role as a Catholic priest due to a dispute with the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith over this book. The Vatican’s investigation centred on this 1997 book "Papal Power" which was said to imply that "a true and binding revelation" does not exist; to deny that the Church of Christ is identified with the Catholic Church and to deny the doctrine of papal infallibility. Collins was further accused of holding the view that a teaching, to be considered church doctrine, must be approved through the sensus fidelium - the "sense of the people" - as well as by bishops and theologians. In explaining his resignation, Collins cited the increasing rigidity and sectarianism of the Vatican, stating that the August 2000 declaration Dominus Jesus expressed "a profoundly anti-ecumenical spirit at odds with the sense of God’s grace permeating the whole cosmos". First page carrires a dedication to Eddie which seems to be from the author.
