1 Come, Holy Spirit, renew the whole creation: six Bible studies on the theme of the Seventh Assembly of the World Council of Churches
Australia Joint Board of Christian Education 1989 0858197782 / 9780858197787 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
108 pages including b/w illustrations. "Come, Holy Spirit - Renew the Whole Creation." That prayer is the theme chosen for the Seventh Assembly of the World Council of Churches, which will meet in Canberra, Australia, 7 to 20 February 1991. Presented in this book are six Bible studies around the Assembly theme. Beginning with our confession of faith in the Holy Spirit, we go on to study the theme as a whole, and the four sub-themes which provide the link between our confession and the demands it makes on us as we try to live our faith from day to day. Included in each study is a wealth of comments and testimonies from friends in many parts of the world. By being involved in these studies as groups of Christian people, all of us can prepare for and contribute to the Canberra Assembly - and allow the renewal we pray for to start with us in our congregation and our local community.

Creation’s Cry: The Heart of Apostolic Passion, Atkin, Don
6 Atkin, Don Creation’s Cry: The Heart of Apostolic Passion
Don Atkin 1931527970 / 9781931527972 Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
224 pages. In a day when so many either ignore apostolic ministry, or others pervert its meaning, it is a joy to read and understand the big picture of what the Lord has purposed for His Church. There's so much rich wisdom Don conveys in "Creation's Cry". According to Steve Eastman, "Don Atkin began his journey with God in 1963. He was firmly entrenched in the church system. A few years later he migrated from sunny California to snowy, upstate New York. His story brought back memories of other families I had met in the church system, who experienced miraculous provision as they sold out to God and trusted Him to meet all their needs. But God is not static. Neither was He content to allow Don Atkins to camp out at his initial understanding of the Kingdom of God. Don ended up on the receiving end of two mentoring relationships that helped him move beyond the traditional paradigm of church. It seems much of the church is obsessed with saving souls, which it subsequently abandoned. The New Testament emphasizes discipling newly born believers. For Don, that came to include hosting long-time house guests, who caught the Christian life by watching Jesus live out His life through him and his family. Don is not a hierarchical guy. He sees apostles as wise master builders whose influence stems from their function, not a position. A man’s gifts make room for him, and people gifted to be apostles come to be recognized as such through the fruit in their lives. Don did not obey his mentors because they demanded it, but because he recognized God working through them. Mentoring is intended to be temporary, leading the disciple to where he can hear God for himself, no longer needing a constant intermediary. I would be less than honest if I said everything in the book blessed me. One part was disturbing because it illustrates a style of parenting in sharp contrast to my own. Don tells about a time when his daughter was arriving from school. He had always told her to come straight home. At 20 minutes past the deadline, Don went to look for her and found her talking to a boy. He sent her to her room until he had cooled off, went in to speak with her and accepted her apology. They he spanked her with a paddle. He says she took it well. In my opinion, what worked for Don and his daughter, would not work for the majority of families. A child who was spanked after being told she was forgiven would normally feel betrayed and resentful. Just as a disciple needs to be gradually given more responsibility before the end of a discipling relationship, I feel a child needs to grow in decision-making before reaching adulthood. Otherwise, he or she is not ready to accept adult responsibilities. If a daughter is old enough to be interested in boys, she is probably too old to spank. A more appropriate punishment would be a loss of privilege. Perhaps if Don had included his daughter’s age in the story, his actions would have been more understandable. I do not wish to belabor my one area of disagreement with a book I found to be otherwise sound. Don Atkins has a lot to offer in practical experience as he teaches on the apostolic. You will learn more from him than you would at most apostolic-prophetic conferences."

157 pages. "With an engaging blend of scriptural reflection, theological investigation and very personal and human stories of struggle, confusion and journeys in faith, Father Ken Barker has provided his readers with a very real reason to live their lives in hope. Over and over again he shows us that the basis for this hope is Jesus Christ. As Father Barker insists, however, there is a world of difference between knowing about Christ and knowing Christ. It is when we encounter him as a living presence in our lives today, rather than simply an interesting and perhaps inspiring figure from the past, that our lives begin to be transformed by his saving grace. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know Jesus better, love him more and serve him with generosity and courage." - Archbishop Timothy Costelloe SDB - Archbishop of Perth. Fr Ken Barker is the founder of the Missionaries of God's Love, a new emerging congregation in the Australian Church. He is a well-known conference speaker, involved in charismatic renewal, Disciples of Jesus Community, Young Men of God Movement, and various other youth ministries. He is the author of the books Becoming Fire, A Radical way of Love, Young Men Rise Up, and His Name is Mercy. Creases and wear.

USA Ave Maria Pr 1993 0877935009 / 9780877935001 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
143 pages. Father William Barry believes that God wants an intimate relationship with each one of us - and that the deepest desire of our own hearts is to have an intimate relationship with God. Yet while we pursue this desire and long for its satisfaction, we also resist it - which can lead to a painful stagnancy. How can we move forward? In this book, Fr. Barry serves as our spiritual director, leading us on a series of brief "retreats" to help us understand the foundations of our relationship with God, what threatens it, and how we can continuously move forward into a closer and more meaningful relationship with God. In his warm, conversational style, Barry offers meditations, poses questions, and gently encourages us to respond to God's immeasurable love by following what is truly in each of our hearts - a longing to love him in return.

157pp. "The only way to understand the "Psalms" is on your knees, the whole congregation praying the words of the Psalms with all its strength." -Dietrich Bonhoeffer. At the time of his execution by the Nazis in 1945, Dietrich Bonhoeffer was not quite forty years old.

171 indexed pages including b/w illustrations and bibliography. The Katoomba Christian Convention has been a blessing to the Australian Christian community since 1903, when it began in a very small way in the children’s playroom at ‘Khandala’, the holiday home of Ernest and Margaret Young at Katoomba. It was founded in the tradition of the English Keswick Convention, an annual gathering of Christians in the Lake District in the north of England, where evangelical Christians gathered together to enrich their relationship with God. This is what the Katoomba Christian Convention has done for 100 years. Its speakers have included Australian and International Christian leaders, and its influence has strengthened churches throughout New South Wales and beyond. From the beginning, the Katoomba Christian Convention has proclaimed the fellowship of Christians with the motto, ‘All One in Christ Jesus’ (Galatians 3:28) and it continues to open the riches of Gods word to thousands of people.

The Bible and Postmodern Imagination, Brueggemann, Walter
18 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.
