What Jesus Saw from the Cross, A. G. Sertillanges
2 A. G. Sertillanges What Jesus Saw from the Cross
USA Sophia Institute Press 1996 0918477379 / 9780918477378 Soft Cover Very Good 8vo 
244 pages. Never has there been spiritual reading as powerful as What Jesus Saw from the Cross, the book that will intensify your love of Jesus by burning the events of His Passion into your memory and imagination. Written early in this century by Rev. A. G. Sertillanges, a priest who lived in Jerusalem, this acclaimed devotional classic gives you vivid and dramatic details not included in the Gospel: With Jesus, you'll be jostled by crowds as you enter Jerusalem, choke on the dust of the narrow streets, experience the exotic oriental smells of the city at festival time, share the Last Supper with the disciples, stare into the face of Jesus' accusers, and be there as He dies on the Cross. Do you remember when Jesus begged His disciples to "watch one hour" with Him in the Garden of Gethsemane? With this book, you can watch not just one but many hours with Jesus. Read it slowly and prayerfully. The vivid details and the gripping narrative will soon take over: you'll find yourself engaged in a personal retreat, an interior pilgrimage, and a profound meditation on the love and sufferings of Jesus on the Cross. From Christ's Cross, you'll: Recall with Him the history of His people, while gazing lovingly on Mount Zion the "City of David" cradled within the walls of Jerusalem. Search the faces in the crowd below, finding there the malice of enemies, the dismay of friends, and the indifference of so many others. Find comfort in the tender love revealed in the sorrowful face of His Blessed Mother. Look across Jerusalem to the Mount of Olives, the road to Bethany, the Upper Room, the Garden of Gethsemane . . . and remember with Jesus the holy deeds He performed in each of these places. Recall the forty days in the desert, the marriage at Cana, the baptism by John, the calling of the Apostles, and the other events of His holy ministry, now brought to fearful consummation on the Cross.

The Bible and Postmodern Imagination, Brueggemann, Walter
5 Brueggemann, Walter The Bible and Postmodern Imagination
U. K. SCM Pr 1993 033400103X / 9780334001034 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
117 pages. It is widely affirmed that we now live in a new situation, a pluralistic, postmodern world. This situation is seen by many as a threat to traditional churches and their long established practices and patterns of belief, not least their interpretation of the Bible. Walter Brueggemann argues that this approach is far too pessimistic. Far from being a threat, our new siuation offers new opportunities, not least a chance to move beyonf the negativities of historical criticism. In support of this argument, Professor Brueggemann first outlines in more detail the present context as he sees it. Then he does the same for the themes of the Bible, seeing them as the picture of a world which is to be correlated with and set over against the modern world, providing a viable alternative infrastructure. The third and last chapter turns to specific texts with a focus on memory, covenant and hope. By moving from context to theme to text, Professor Brueggemann argues, the text can be given liberating power to transform, working in congregations who seek modes of practice faithful to the gospel.

Leading lawyers look at the Resurrection, Clifford, Ross

Australia Albatross Book 1991 0867601272 / 9780867601275 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
143 pages. Did Jesus rise from the dead? What happened to the body of Jesus? Are the writers of the Gospels reliable witnesses? The author selects some of the most prominent lawyers of modern times to sift through the evidence on the most influential figure of history. He describes the lawyers’ professional backgrounds, outlines their contributions to this 2000-year-old debate and reinforces their conclusions by some careful research of his own. A compelling case is made for the familiar claim of the Apostles’ Creed: ‘On the third day he rose again.’ While Ross Clifford believes that ‘the evidence would convince a court of law,’ he argues that we can't leave the matter there. The phenomenon of the resurrection strikes at the very heart of who we are and how we view human existence. inevitably, we find ourselves asking: What does it mean if Jesus did rise from the dead? How does it affect my understanding of life and death? If Jesus rose from the dead, what response does God require of me? Contents: 1. Who wrote the gospels? /? Edmund H. Bennett; 2. Are the gospels reliable, historical documents? /? John Warwick Montgomery; 3. Do the gospel writers speak the truth? /? Simon Greenleaf; 4. Do the gospel writers complement each other? /?

Jacques Ellul, the Major Works, Cranmer, John; Ellul, Jacques
8 Cranmer, John; Ellul, Jacques Jacques Ellul, the Major Works
Australia Hexagon Press 1980 0908063040 / 9780908063048 1st Edition Stapled Soft Cover Good 12mo 
40 pages. Jacques Ellul stands against those who seek a moulding of the Christian message by the modern world. For Ellul, modern man does not call the gospel into question, but the biblical revelation confronts modern man as an individual, challenging the foundation of his existence. He believes that Christians have a God-given gift of being able to discern the times, and should speak to their society in a similar manner as the Hebrew prophets to their society, warning of dangerous consequences of trends discernable in the present. He is one who seeks to speak a word from God that takes into account the mindset of the modern (technological) world. As a sociologist, Ellul stands in the tradition of Tocqueville in seeing the essence of modernity in the rise of the centralised and rationalised state. With the publication of “Technological Society” Ellul was discovered by the world outside France as a penetrating social analyst of whose ability even Aldous Huxley stood in envy. Yet to view Ellul only as a social analyst is to remove the dynamic from his thinking, for at the centre Jacques Ellul is one who seeks to confront the modern world with the biblical revelation of God in Jesus Christ. He asks us to view his work in terms of counterpoint: his sociological works standing in partnership with his biblical and theological works. While he gives no detailed program, Ellul says that christians are the only ones who have a genuine hope and a genuine resource of strength to cope with the severe strain of going against the dominant direction of the modern world of technological mass man.

The Role of Rock, Don Hibbard
10 Don Hibbard The Role of Rock
U.S.A. Prentice Hall 1983 0137824416 / 9780137824410 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
216 indexed pages. From its inception in the 1950s to the arrival of New Wave in the 1980s. rock 'n' roll has had an enormous impact on American youth and culture. Sex, drugs, the anti-war movement - rock has revolutionized many facets of society. Here the extent of rock's impact is evaluated and the role of rock analyzed, from 1955 to the present. What emerges is a new understanding of the motivations behind rock, its influence on audiences, and its interrelationships with society. Rock as an art form is a central theme, and in this book its development through established genres and performers is traced. But this is not just a rock encyclopedia; musical and sociological analyses flesh out the chronological framework. Rock is defined not only as music, but as a social phenomenon as well. From this viewpoint, rock is seen as a vehicle for youthful rebellion, and non conformity as a symbol for a new world view. The authors grapple with these ideas and succeed in unearthing a fascinating assessment of the role of rock. As they do, it suddenly becomes clear that though the revolution of the 1960s has passed, rock made something significant happen in our society - and the impact of that event still influences our lives today. Specially featured in this book is an extensive discography that covers not only rock 'n' roll but the blues, gospel, country, rhythm and blues, folk. and reggae as well.

His Name Is Mercy, Ken Barker
11 Ken Barker His Name Is Mercy
Australia Modotti Press 2010 1921421452 / 9781921421457 12th Impression Soft Cover Good 12mo 
147 pages. In an age of ever increasing litigation we have become highly tuned to the need for justice. But is there room for mercy? In this book Fr Ken Barker argues passionately that without mercy justice will not be complete. He makes a compelling case for mercy through the use of stories about remarkable human beings who, faced with hurt and violence, have chosen to forgive rather than to seek vengeance. He reminds us that mercy is the highest quality in the heart of God, and hence the most liberating attitude for any human heart. This book provides much needed teaching on forgiveness. With great clarity and sensitivity Fr Barker addresses the deep questions that arise in our hearts when we have been the victims of violence, or when we have been deeply hurt by a betrayal of trust. "Why forgive when a grave injustice has been done against me?" "How can I forgive when they don't deserve it?" "Does forgiving someone mean I have to forget?" "When I forgive do I have to excuse the one who offended me?" "How can I forgive when I feel hatred in my heart?" "Why has God allowed this to happen to me?" The gospel principles enunciated here provide a sure pointer towards freedom for all who have agonised with these questions. The stories offered here of those who have found this freedom are a light in the darkness, and an inspiration towards the highest calling of any human being - to have mercy and to forgive.

Australia John Garratt Publishing 2009 1920682015 / 9781920682019 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
208 pages including bibliography. 'I have called this collection of homilies Welcoming the Outsider, thereby sounding a note that resonates throughout Luke's gospel, and which is particularly evident in stories unique to Luke...In Luke's gospel, the final words that Jesus spoke from the cross to another human being were addressed to an outsider: "Today you will be with me in paradise." Jesus died as he had lived, welcoming the outsider.' - (Geoffrey Michael Plant in the Introduction.) Geoff Plant's homilies teach by surprise. In each, he first devotes time to offer his knowledge of the biblical aspect of the given reading, from settings to scholarship. Then he invites us to share his delight in something from his own discovery of our contemporary secular world which has made its mark, from people to places. In a deft conclusion, he draws the two worlds together so we are suddenly, clearly and unforgettably instructed in holy understanding. Spiritual growth is the result. These homilies will be welcomed by priests and Church workers, students of Biblical Studies, Bible Study groups and individuals wishing to enrich their own spiritual understanding.
