Journey With the Poor, Philp, Peter
1 Philp, Peter Journey With the Poor
Australia Collins Dove 1988 0859245624 / 9780859245623 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
126 pages including b/w illustrations. The story of one manís developing understanding that Jesusí teaching extends far beyond the boundaries set by denomination, neighbourhood or even nation. Today, the world is our neighbour. To love our neighbour as ourselves means loving the poor, the disinherited, the oppressed and imprisoned - and not merely loving in an abstract way, but trying to change the conditions, the material circumstances which limit and oppress. Peter Philp joined World Vision in 1976, and since then has travelled worldwide for the organisation - visiting Uganda under Obote, Ethiopia during the great famine of 1984-85, and many other third-world centres of poverty, famine and despair. But it was his experiences in Central and South America which most significantly deepened his understanding that the poor are indeed the Body of Christ, and that in them we have him always with us. They are the subjects and heroes of Journey with the Poor. Through the favelas of Brazil, the shanties and prisons of Colombia, the murderous political forays of El Salvador, the savage oppression lightened by Christian hope and faith in Guatemala, Peter Philp takes us on his inner and outer journey. We meet the martyrs and heroes of the ongoing battle for social justice in these places. We hear their words, listen to the people for whom they fight and have died. We are inspired by the courage and Christian faith they continue to display in circumstances which would drive most of us, content in our safety and comfort, to despair and denial. Their stories will inform, inspire and move you as they did Peter Philp. Here is your chance to make your own journey and join in the prayers and hopes of the thousands upon thousands already on the road.

Islam in Australia, Saeed, Abdullah
2 Saeed, Abdullah Islam in Australia
Australia Allen & Unwin 2003 1865088641 / 9781865088648 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
viii + 231 indexed pages. Islam reached Australia's shores before Christianity, but it is only in recent times that its believers have become a significant part of Australia's rich cultural mix. What is Islam and who are its practitioners in Australia? What do they believe and how do they practice their beliefs here? What exists behind the often negative stereotypes presented in the media? In this brief and accessible introduction to the world of Islam, Abdullah Saeed dispels the myths and explains the background to one of humanity's oldest and most intriguing religions---with particular reference to Islam now, and to the experience of Muslims in Australia. He outlines the emergence of Islam and its remarkable contributions to areas such as philosophy, science, astrology and medicine. This overview creates a context in which to think about Islam --- its worldview, key concepts and ideas, practices and institutions, sacred places and times --- and provides the reader with an understanding of the fundamental tenets of this religion, as it is lived by over 300 000 residents of Australia. This book gives an insight into Islam today, providing a basis for understanding the high degree of diversity among Muslims while keeping an eye on what unites them. Muslims are often depicted as an identical mass, when in fact in Australia, they make up one of the most culturally diverse groups in the community. In the wake of September 11 and the recent bitter controversy over asylum seekers, Islam in Australia counters the ignorance and prejudice with facts about the 'people next door'. Contents: 1. Who are Australia's Muslims; 2. The story of Islam and Islamic civilisation; 3. Islamic world view; 4. Essential beliefs and practices; 5. Unity and diversity; 6. The life cycle of a Muslim; 7. Sacred times and places; 8. Living as an Australian practising Muslim; 9. Muslim community leadership; 10. Halal food; 11. Islamic schools; 12. Muslim women; 13. Perceptions of Islam and Muslims; 14. Commitment to fundamental Australian values. There is a name and a phone number in the first page.
