Not without Hope: Christian traditions of Grieving, Lynch, Peter J.
142 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.

149 Marsh, Clive Cinema and Sentiment: Film's Challenge to Theology (Studies in Religion and Culture)
UK Paternoster 2005 1625643489 / 9781625643483 Reprint 2nd Edition Soft Cover Good 8vo 
162 pages. Watching any film happens within a cultural context. Cinema and Sentiment critically examines the practice of watching movies in western culture. Clive Marsh demonstrates aspects of the religious function of film-watching by comparing watching movies to worshiping. Through a variety of case studies on the habit of going to the theater, Marsh's study shows how watching films as a regular practice can contribute to the shaping of human living. Engaging with social and religious behavior patters in western culture, Cinema and Sentiment suggests a need to recover a positive sense of sentiment, both in theology and film. Two concluding chapters locate the text in recent studies of theology and film, offering church leaders, students of theology and film studies, and all those with an interest in contemporary culture practical consequences of the work's findings. There is a crease in the front cover.

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.

Spirituality and Emptiness: The Dynamics of Spiritual Life in Buddhism and Christianity, Mitchell, Donald William
158 Mitchell, Donald William Spirituality and Emptiness: The Dynamics of Spiritual Life in Buddhism and Christianity
U.S.A. Paulist Pr 1991 0809132664 / 9780809132669 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
224 pages. A former Zen Buddhist compares the views of Japanese Buddhists of the Kyoto School with those of traditional Christian spirituality by focusing on the Buddhist concept of Emptiness and the key theological issue of Kenosis, the process of self-emptying. The author also explores the theme of kenosis (which states that Christ voluntarily relinquished his divine powers so as to experience human suffering) as it pertains to Buddhism and Christianity. His discussion of the Kyoto School encompasses both Zen and Mahayana sects, while his discussion of Christianity involves kenotic perspectives on each person of the Trinity, as well as human expressions of kenosis (e.g., Adam and Eve's failure as negative kenosis). The concern for social and communal transformation and the emphasis on spiritual, rather than intellectual, issues distinguishes this book from others in the field.

The Benedictine Way, Mork, Wulstan
160 Mork, Wulstan The Benedictine Way
U.S.A. St Bedes Pubns 1987 0932506321 / 9780932506320 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
95 pages.This book carries a very good and informative synthesis of the basic elements of the monastic tradition which have come down to us in the Rule of St. Benedict. From the very beginning of the book, Fr. Wulstan rightly presents the basic foundation of the monastic life - the monk is one who truly seeks God. The Benedictine Way is a mentality, an attitude characteristic of the monastic life. It consists of certain elements that are essential to the life: continual prayer, lectio divina, community life, the opus Dei, work, separation from the world, and the specifically Benedictine vows of obedience, stability, and conversatio morum. These elements are necessary means for monks and nuns on their road to union with God. While the book was intended originally as a basis for the formation of novices and juniors in monasteries, it also provides material for renewal and re-formation for older monks and nuns. It can also be used by Benedictine oblates or by any lay Christian who is hungering for prayer and wants instruction on how to pray. Benedictine prayer is simple and direct, and anyone who wants to returnto the sources of Christian spirituality will easily appreciate The Benedictine Way.
