191 pages. Students of theology can find themselves strengthened and renewed while they study, but it can also be a time of trial. This reader shows how to navigate such trials as we study for and then engage in Christian ministry. It includes wisdom from voices past: Augustine; Martin Luther; C. H. Spurgeon; B. B. Warfield; Dietrich Bonhoeffer and C.S. Lewis. Several modern authors also show how to navigate various aspects of theological study successfully: D. A. Carson Biblical Studies; Carl Trueman Church History; Gerald Bray Systematic Theology; Dennis Hollinger Christian Ethics; and John Woodhouse Seminary life. The book shows how we can move from being 'lost among words' as we study of theology, to being 'lost for words' in praise of God.

Mixed Blessings: John Paul II and the Church of the Eighties, Collins, Paul
3 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 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.

5 Dickson, John If I Were God, I'd Make Myself Clearer: Searching for Clarity in a World Full of Claims
Australia Matthias Media 2002 1876326514 / 9781876326517 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
85 pages. Written from a Christian perspective, this book struggles honestly with a dilemma facing 'believers' and 'unbelievers' alike: With so many religions on offer, can one of them be considered true? If there really is something spiritual out there, wouldn't there be some pretty clear signposts to it? Surely God wouldn't leave people with nothing but a bewildering variety of religious voices? If God exists - wouldn't he have made himself clearer? In the second If I Were God book, John Dickson considers the vast array of spiritual claims made by different religions and individuals and asks whether any clarity about God can be found. Written from a Christian perspective, this book struggles honestly with a dilemma facing 'believers' and 'unbelievers' alike: With so many religions on offer, can one of them be considered true? Or are they different paths up the same spiritual mountain? And how can any one person sort out their way through the maze of claims? Table of Contents: Introduction 1. Incurably Religious 2. The Attraction of Distraction 3. An Unknown God 4. God's Signpost 5. Lines of Verification Paul's Speech to the Areopagus (Acts 17:16-34) Resources for Further Reading. John Dickson is a bestselling author in Australia and the UK. His warm and humorous style has endeared him to raders, with his ability to tackle complex ideas in a straightforward fashion. John also records and performs as a singer/songwriter, holds degrees in theology and ancient history, and speaks about the Christian message in his native Sydney and beyond.

Sheer Grace: Living the Mystery of God, Dizdar, Drasko
6 Dizdar, Drasko Sheer Grace: Living the Mystery of God
U.S.A. Paulist Pr 2008 0809145170 / 9780809145171 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
218 indexed pages about doing liturgy as theology, and about a way of doing theology through liturgy as something that God does; and invites us to participate in as fully, consciously and actively as we are able. Liturgical renewal is the gift of the ever ancient, ever new Spirit that God offers us, not our task of rubric reform; and liturgical restoration is about God giving us back our divine destiny as creatures who are being ever created anew in the image and likeness of God, not an escape into a dead past. Sheer Grace tries to show not just the "link between" but the indissolubility of theology, liturgy, and spirituality; and it does so by grounding it in a radical tradition of liturgy as transformation that has its roots in the scriptures and the lived liturgical experience of our biblical and ecclesial ancestors. At the same time it looks to the present experience of Christians who feel a deep and largely unmet need for that same kind of transforming experience that liturgy can be; and it looks to the future with hope as a gift of "sheer grace," as something only God can and does give, and not as something we can manufacture by our own efforts at renewal or restoration.

The Social Justice Agenda: Justice, Ecology, Power and the Church, Doust, Jon
7 Doust, Jon The Social Justice Agenda: Justice, Ecology, Power and the Church
Australia Collins Dove 1991 0859249751 / 9780859249751 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
201 indexed pages. There have been major developments in the spirituality, theology and teaching of the Churches on social issues during the past generation. This book is an attempt to meet the need for a general introduction to the topic of justice-and-peace as it has emerged for the Christian Churches in recent years. The emphasis is on the role that can be played by the institutional Church in responding to social justice issues. Beginning with a general account of the major issues of social justice which confront the Christian today, the author then summarizes what the Churches have to say about these issues. After exploring various ways in which Christians and the Churches can commit themselves to the promotion of justice in society, the author examines the crucial contribution which can be made by the Churches to the search for alternatives, that is towards the building of a society and a world that is more just, more respectful of the earth, more sustainable and more participative. The book then discusses what is involved in the Church itself becoming more just. The key issue here is that the Church has power of various kinds and so it is necessary to examine how this power is to be used in ways that are truly just. The question of formation and the training for various kinds of special ministry in the Church is examined, and ways are explored in which commitment to the transformation of society and practical experience of community-building may be integrated with other aspects of formation. The author is a well-known facilitator, consultant, trainer, resource-person and author. For many years he devoted himself to working, in Ireland and overseas, with community groups, Church groups, and teams of all kinds, with a special emphasis on empowerment, community-building, and conflict-resolution.

Public Theology in Law and Life, Edgar, Brian; Babie, Paul; Wilson, David (editors)
8 Edgar, Brian; Babie, Paul; Wilson, David (editors) Public Theology in Law and Life
Australia ATF Press 2012 1921817771 / 9781921817779 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
xi + 194 pages. 'Public theology' involves the application of biblical and theological principles outside the confines of the church and assesses their implications for wider society. It examines both the theoretical structures of society (the nature of secularity, government, globalisation, pluralism and so forth) and the myriad specific issues involved in daily life (everything from sport to work-place relations to economics). Public theology is also, very importantly, a discipline that is practiced by the 'ordinary' Christian as well as the academic, and it is done in public (with all the scrutiny that entails) and in such a way that it communicates to non-Christians (although it remains a theological endeavour). In a real sense it is theology for the world, from the Word, by the people of God. The volume has a variety of contributors and includes an article on the role of public theology in Islam. Contents: Introduction. Public theology today / Brain Edgar, Paul Babie, David Wilson A. Public theology. law and justice. 1. Public theology, justice and law: a preliminary note / Benny YT Tai 2.

Opening the Cage: Stories of Church and Gender, Franklin, Margaret Ann
10 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.

Nature, Reality, and the Sacred: The Nexus of Science and Religion, Gilkey, Langdon
11 Gilkey, Langdon Nature, Reality, and the Sacred: The Nexus of Science and Religion
U.S.A. Fortress Pr 1993 0800627547 / 9780800627546 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
266 indexed pages. Two partial apprehensions of nature have been vying for dominance in this century: religious (void of any influence from science) and scientific (unable to admit any reality beyond the empirical). Both views have led to the exploitation of nature - and the scientific may prove even more devastating. The fault, Gilkey argues, lies not in the scientific knowledge of nature but in the assumed philosophy of science that accompanies most scientific and technological practice. Scientific knowing needs to be critiqued and brought into relationship with other complementary ways of knowing. Once again, Gilkey expands our vision and deepens our insight. He has given us a classic contribution to a theology of nature that emerges from a careful conversation with the natural sciences. Gilkey’s mature venture into the waters of science-theology is a sensitive appeal to discern the religious dimension that underlies science and the science that religion must have. His strident thoughts seek to steer through the reefs of both scientism and creationism.

The Spiritual Wisdom and Practices of Early Christianity, Goettmann, Alphonse; Goettmann, Rachel
12 Goettmann, Alphonse; Goettmann, Rachel The Spiritual Wisdom and Practices of Early Christianity
U.S.A. Orthodox Research Institute 2006 193327509X / 9781933275093 Revised Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
121 pages. In this book, we will consider the fundamental practices of the Christian experience. They are backed by two thousand years of history and a sea of witnesses who, down through the ages, have journeyed on this path that has led them to the summits of wisdom and holiness. The difficulty in the presentation of these "methods" is their inevitable and artificial juxtaposition when they only find their internal and organic coherence in the living Tradition. They are all held together as in a living organism; each element comes at a particular stage in a life that gravitates around its axis: the Christ. That is why we will use a method which will make it possible for the reader not to remain on the exterior as a spectator: the repetition of key ideas. This is a teaching in the form of a spiral, an "eating of the word" where, as in liturgical chants and the experiential method of Scripture, we become that which we "eat" continually, we "are" what we have just read rather than merely "knowing" it. Each chapter is a new approach to the unique Reality. Rather than addressing the intellect, it speaks to the heart.

U.S.A. Darton,Longman & Todd 2007 0232525005 / 9780232525007 Reprint Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
174 pages. The Lamb's Supper is one of the most original and exciting works of theology to have appeared in recent years. With unique scholarship, style and exuberance Scott Hahn reveals a long-lost secret of the Church: the early Christians' key to understanding the mysteries of the Mass was the New Testament's Book of Revelation. With its bizarre imagery, its mystic visions of heaven, and its end-of-time prophecies, Revelation mirrors the sacrifice and celebration of the Eucharist. Scott Hahn sheds new light on the Mass, offering readers a deeper appreciation of the most familiar of Catholic rituals. Of all things Catholic, there is nothing that is so familiar as the Mass. With its unchanging prayers, the Mass fits Catholics like their favorite clothes. Yet most Catholics sitting in the pews on Sundays fail to see the powerful supernatural drama that enfolds them. Pope John Paul II described the Mass as "Heaven on Earth," explaining that what "we celebrate on Earth is a mysterious participation in the heavenly liturgy." The Lamb’s Supper reveals a long-lost secret of the Church: The early Christians' key to understanding the mysteries of the Mass was the New Testament Book of Revelation. With its bizarre imagery, its mystic visions of heaven, and its end-of-time prophecies, Revelation mirrors the sacrifice and celebration of the Eucharist. Beautifully written, in clear direct language, bestselling Catholic author Scott Hahn's new book will help readers see the Mass with new eyes, pray the liturgy with a renewed heart, and enter into the Mass more fully, enthusiastically, intelligently, and powerfully than ever before.

She interprets clearly what is happening in the church today, yet she is not confrontational.

18 Lynch, Peter J. Not without Hope: Christian traditions of Grieving
Australia Catholic Institute of Sydney 1989 090824415X 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
x + 102 pages. This book shows how, during their long history, Christians have grieved their dead Beginning with Christianity’s origins in Antiquity, the author traces a fascinating story through the period of the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and Reformation, the Victorian Age down to modern times, as to how women and men of faith sought consolation amidst death. Lynch attempts to show how feelings such as shock, sadness, guilt and anger associated with bereavement have given rise to religious beliefs and mourning customs of popular religion that grew and blended together over centuries. The book faces the issue of differences between Catholics and Protestants concerning the dead and how to grieve them. Can these differences be now reconciled? Drawing upon theology, history, the arts, and contemporary social science, the author offers some pastoral conclusions as to how the Church today can best minister to people at the time of death. To what extent can the insights of the modern world be integrated with the Christian traditions of the past when it comes to grieving? Peter Lynch graduated in theology from the Catholic Institute of Sydney. He obtained a Master’s degree in adult religious education from Fordham University, New York and the Doctor of Ministry degree from the Catholic University of America, Washington D. C. He is a priest of the Archdiocese of Sydney and teaches in the Department of Pastoral Studies at the Catholic Institute of Sydney. Name in the first page.

Australia David Lovell Pub 2004 1863551069 / 9781863551069 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
202 pages. Davis McCaughey has become something of a legend in his own life time', says Peter Matheson, in his Preface to Fresh Words and Deeds,- as a scholar, teacher, preacher, as Master of Ormond College and as leader in church and state.' This book follows on from a first collection, Tradition and Dissent, which gathered together his words from his university and public life. This complementary collection focuses on his theological work. The title of this collection, Fresh Words and Deeds, draws upon a phrase from the United Church of Australia's foundational document, The Basis of Union. The Church, it insists, links 'fresh words and deeds' with the 'inheritance of literary, historical and scientific enquiry' and the 'faithful and scholarly interpretation' of Scripture that are the hallmarks of an informed faith. David McCaughey ensured that these were the characteristics of the educational, pastoral, social and political activities that he found himself involved in. This book has been published to mark the ninetienth birthday of the fifth Master of Ormond College. It is indeed an expression of gratitude for some fifty years of stimulating theological teaching and leadership. Published to mark the 90th birthday of the fifth Master of Ormond College, this is a selection of Davis McCaughey's theological writings and represents his scholarly initiatives and pastoral and prophetic insights.
