PRAYING WITH JESUS AND MARY Our Father - Hail Mary by Leonardo Boff 192 pp., HKD 16.00 Boff enters into the experience of Jesus to share the meaning of the Lord’s Prayer in a world of injustice. The prayer that Jesus taught us emerges as an urgent call for social and personal transformation. In his reflections on the Hail Mary, translated here for the first time, Boff offers a radical appreciation of Mary’s role as partner and bearer of the Holy Spirit. SEEKING THE HIDDEN GOD by Jane Kopas 192 pp., HKD 18.00 A beautifully written reflection on knowing God in today’s world. Finding God elusive or questioning God’s presence in the world doesn’t have to undermine faith. Questioning God’s very existence, as Jane Kopas shows us, goes as far back as Moses, Job and Jonah, and including some of the early church fathers and mystics. Today, in our continuing struggle to know God, we must be willing to move beyond a desire for a God who is easily grasped and understood. Then we may find a “hidden” God who can strengthen us and better help us cope with the uncertainty of our world. EXPERIENCING BUDDHISM Ways of Wisdom and Compassion by Ruben L. F. Habito 230 pp., HKD 18.00 A lucid introduction to the Buddhist experience and how it leads to the many varieties of Buddhism. “An engaging blend of thematic exposition on the main Buddhist doctrines and experiences both from classic sources and from modern accounts.” -- John P. Keenan This book engages the reader with its story-telling style as it illustrates the principles of Buddhism with concrete examples. Paying special attention to the rise of Buddhist practice in the West, Habito introduces the novice to Buddhist experience in its historical unity and the variety of traditions that reflect its essence. All prices are also applicable for Patacas—MOP.

Claretian Publications WINGING IT Meditations of a Young Adult by Therese Johnson Borchard 157 pp., HKD 12.00 From the eternal questions to the mundane particulars of life Therese Borchard shares her search for meaning, her ups and downs, and learns a few things along the way. Each reflection begins with a quote from popular culture (from Seinfeld to Seuss), continues with a personal story that everyone can relate to, and ends with a biblical passage that invites contemplation. MARTIN LUTHER KING The Inconvenient Hero by Vincent Harding 172 pp. , HKD 16.00 “A clear, well-researched, and ground-breaking text. Harding unites the objectivity of a scientific investigation with an empathy for justice, and marshals a compelling argument for a rearticulation of the heroic dimensions of Martin Luther King, Jr.” — Dwight N. Hopkins

In these eloquent essays, noted scholar and activist Vincent Harding reflects on the forgotten legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. and his message for today. While many prefer to embrace the “safer” message of King’s stirring “I Have a Dream” speech, Harding writes passionately of King’s later years, when his message and witness became more radical and challenging to the status quo at every level. PAULI MURRAY Selected Sermons and Writings by Anthony B. Pinn, editors 280 pp., HKD 25.00 Readers will encounter more than just an excellent collection of lucid, original, prophetic meditations. Each sermon bears witness to Murray’s extraordinary ability to see springs of water in the midst of life’s wilderness. This book should not be missed.—Katie G. Cannon

Pauli Murray (1910-1985) was a bold thinker whose passion for racial justice, equality, and freedom was rooted in a deep and sustaining religious faith. A pioneer throughout her life, she was an early activist in the civil rights movement; a professor of law at Brandeis; a poet and author of two acclaimed memoirs; a cofounder of the National Organization of Women; and finally, at the age of 66, the first African-American woman ordained in the Episcopal Church.

TRADITIONS OF CHRISTIAN SPIRITUALITY SERIES

The Traditions of Christian Spirituality series makes the riches of some of the world’s greatest spiritual traditions available to a contemporary public. Each title introduces the key themes and values of one of the major traditions of spirituality, and draws out their relevance for the modern-day reader. THE LANGUAGE OF SILENCE The Changing Face of Monastic Solitude by Peter-Damian Belisle et.al. 188 pp. , HKD 16.00 The quest for solitude with God runs through the entire Christian tradition. Peter-Damian Belisle shows us its biblical origins, through the age of the early desert monastics and the rise of monastic orders. He surveys those orders, like the Camaldolese, Carthusians, and Cistercians who maintained the hermit ideal. He continues on to examine such twentieth-century figures as Charles de Foucauld, Dorothy Day, and the Trappist martyrs of Algeria. CONTEMPLATION AND COMPASSION The Victorine Tradition by Steven Chase, Philip Sheldrake 174 pp., HKD 16.00 Offers a medieval tradition that enriches contemporary spiritual formation. With emphasis on contemplative prayer, the presence of God in all things, and loving compassion toward one’s neighbors, the Victorine tradition has many parallels with present-day spirituality and holds promise for enriching and energizing contemporary spiritual formation. WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS The Evangelical Tradition by Ian Randall 230 pp., HKD 16.00 What a Friend we have in Jesus, All our sins and grief's to bear:; What a privilege to carry; Everything to God in prayer. Evangelical spirituality, with roots in the revivals of the eighteenth century, is not confined to a church or denomination. Its overriding theme, as reflected in the hymn cited above, is the importance of a personal relationship with Jesus. Yet this personal experience has had broad implications for service and action in the world. All prices are also applicable for Patacas—MOP.

HEART SPEAKS TO HEART The Salesian Spiritual Tradition by Wendy M. Wright 203 pp. , HKD 16.00 The Salesian tradition is rooted in the witness of two extraordinary saints— Francis de Sales and Jane de Chantal. Their influence lives on not only in the many religious orders based on their spirituality, but in the countless people from all walks of life who continue to draw inspiration from their work. Salesian spirituality emphasizes the role of the heart, a universal call to holiness, the cultivation of “little virtues,” and the radical freedom of living in friendship with Jesus. GRACE THAT FREES The Lutheran Tradition by Bradley Hanson 160 pp. , HKD 16.00 Hanson takes us to the heart of Protestant spirituality---emphasizing a grace that frees, relying on the Word of God, taking up one's cross, forgiving and helping one's neighbors, standing up for one's convictions, being a citizen of two kingdoms, and feeling grateful for the good things of life. FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF CHRIST The Anabaptist Tradition by C. Arnold Snyder 216 pp. , HKD 16.00 The Anabaptists were the largest, most significant of the “radical” movements that paralleled the Protestant reforms of the 16th century. Their program was distinctive in its insistence upon baptism of adult believers, a visible life of discipleship, an ascetic way of life, and a commitment to nonviolence. This vision clashed with the ruling civil and church authorities, whether Catholic or Protestant, who persecuted them violently. Despite persecution and ostracism the Anabaptist tradition lives on in diverse forms whether among the Amish, the Hutterites, the Bruderhof, or the Mennonites.
