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.

Mixed Blessings: John Paul II and the Church of the Eighties, Collins, Paul
5 Collins, Paul Mixed Blessings: John Paul II and the Church of the Eighties
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 masterís 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 Vaticanís Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith over this book. The Vaticanís 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 Godís grace permeating the whole cosmos". First page carrires a dedication to Eddie which seems to be from the author.

When the Lord Speaks to the Heart, Courtois, Gaston
6 Courtois, Gaston When the Lord Speaks to the Heart
Canada Editions Paulines 1983 289039929X / 9782890399297 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
160 pages. All who have had the chance to meet Father Gaston Courtois at retreats, meetings, conferences, formation sessions or in the confessional, all who have found support from his impressive spirituality and humility about his works, will find in these intimate notes the ideas which the author cherished and developed with a passion which no one can resist. His writings are the reward of meaningful contemplation and reflection. In the last years of his life he frequented the chapel more often and for longer periods of time, with a notebook on his knee, praying, so to speak, with his pen to Christ, writing in his own words, "Your will be done." Father Courtois expressed often the desire for a great number of prayer leaders. He prayed often for this intention, which he often addressed to Our Lady as, "the first leader of prayer." His desire seems appealing today. Prayer groups and "schools of prayer" are springing up to guide those who wish to mature in the greatest of disciplines, the open communication between man and God. Father Gaston Courtois (1897-1970) was born in Paris. He served as an officer during World War I and was seriously wounded in action in 1917. After the war he entered the renowned Seminary of Saint Sulpice and in 1921 joined the Sons of Charity. Ordained in 1925 he served for several years as a parish priest and during that period collaborated in the foundation of the French J.O.C. (Young Christian Workers). This was the beginning of a chain of apostolic activities in which he would play a role of leadershipĽ,directorship or editorship: in the fields of Catholic Action. Education and the administration of his own religious institute. His studies took him to the Sorbonne. and the Institut Catholique of Paris. His work was honored by the French Government, the French Academy and the University of Montreal. name in the first page.

Opening the Cage: Stories of Church and Gender, Franklin, Margaret Ann
7 Franklin, Margaret Ann Opening the Cage: Stories of Church and Gender
Australia Unwin Hyman 1987 0042000467 / 9780042000466 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
156 pages including extended bibliography about the role that women play in christianity. Increasingly, women and men are responding to a need to break out of gender patterns no longer experienced as fulfilling. For women within the churches this response confronts special challenges. Breaking out of accepted roles can come to be seen within Christian congregations as a threat to good social order, evidence of a lack of personal commitment, a challenge to the authority of the whole Christian revelation. Too often, the result is that the churches lose talents and commitment they can ill afford to do without. But this state of affairs can change and is changing. The very fact that this book, intended for the ordinary churchgoer, counts as especially important the stories of ordinary people dealing in an everyday setting with gender issues, is a sign of change. This book charts that change. Margaret Ann Franklin is an honorary Research Associate of the University of New England and is a founding mother of the Movement for the Ordination of Women in Armidale. Ruth Sturmey Jones is a writer and researcher with experience in chaplaincy, and is a founding mother of the Movement for the Ordination of Women in Sydney. Among the contributors are protestant clergy (both men and women), teachers and parish workers, clergy wives, a catholic priest and a nun.

A History of Christian Spirituality: An Analytical Introduction, Holmes, Urban T. III
8 Holmes, Urban T. III A History of Christian Spirituality: An Analytical Introduction
USA Seabury Press 1980 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
166 indexed pages. This modern classic explores the key concepts and people who have shaped our Christian spiritual heritage. At the time it was first published, the author wrote, This book is the result of finding nothing to recommend to my students as an introduction to the wide variety and great richness of the Christian spiritual experience. The texts available are either too detailed, too unbalanced, or both. This situation remains the same today, more than twenty years later. Now this concise and very readable introduction to Christian spirituality is available for a new generation of readers. Holmes begins with the Jewish antecedents, and proceeds through the New Testament period, monasticism, the Middle Ages, Byzantine spirituality, and the modern period. He ends his overview with key contemporary figures such as Simone Weil, Thomas Merton, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Brief bibliographies of the books written by each notable figure are included for those who wish to read more extensively. A History of Christian Spirituality is the perfect book for introductory classes at the M. Div. level, for diaconate programs, lay people or parish study classes of all Christian denominations, and for any reference collection. This is a unique and invaluable learning tool and reference for readers, students, or teachers who want a quick explanation of the significance of a person or idea, or who are interested in a broad overview of the entire field. Urban Tigner Holmes, III (1930-1981) was an Episcopal priest, theologian, and academic. Creases in the lower front edges.

The Works of Mercy: The Heart of Catholicism (Church Book (shw)), Keenan, James F.
14 Keenan, James F. The Works of Mercy: The Heart of Catholicism (Church Book (shw))
USA Sheed & Ward 2005 0742532208 / 9780742532205 Soft Cover Good 8vo 
118 pages. In The Works of Mercy: The Heart of Catholicism, Father James Keenan, S.J., reveals mercy as God's principle way of loving us and our way of loving one another. A masterful guide, Keenan invites us to journey with him through Scripture, tradition, and lived witness to better understand why and how mercy is the heart of Catholicism. Like other Christian traditions, Catholic moral theology is rooted in natural law, Scripture, the Ten Commandments, and ethical principles. But what distinguishes Catholicism is its emphasis on the virtue of mercy as the center of moral living. In the first two of three parts, Father Keenan explores modern applications of the corporal works of mercy - visiting the prisoner, sheltering the homeless, feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, visiting the sick, clothing the naked, burying the dead - and the spiritual works of mercy - reconciling, being vigilant for the spiritual needs of one's neighbor, and praying. Because we are called by God's mercy into the church, the third part of the book looks at the effective work of mercy in the prayer of the church, particularly in the Eucharist. Complete with meditations on September 11, 2001, and the priesthood in light of the scandals in the church, The Works of Mercy provides a bridge between the past and the present and is must reading for students, parish groups, and individual readers seeking to live their faith in the everyday world.
