STATIONS o f t h e Infancy

“The format of the book is simple. Fourteen episodes are chosen from the Infancy Narratives in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, except for the very first, which is taken from John and which stresses the awesome reality of God becoming truly human. Each episode has the same shape: after the opening response there is a scripture reading, followed by the author’s personal reflection, then a prayer and a closing response. Fourteen carefully chosen works of art match each station as appropriate. The author, with his usual aplomb, makes the scenes come vividly alive and has created a beautiful, thoughtful book.”

Waiting on God

Journeying towards Jesus in Advent

This book develops a counter-cultural spirituality – a real gift for our present time. It looks at models of waiting in the biblical story, examines the ordeal of fear and anxiety in the midst of life, and offers a way of living the prayer of the eucharist – “we wait in joyful hope for the coming of our saviour, Jesus Christ.”

In this insightful and inspiring book, Fr Denis McBride guides us through the Advent season towards the celebration of the birth of Christ. Suitable for private reading or for use in groups, this book invites us to journey together towards a deeper appreciation of the true meaning of Christmas.

Jean Vanier

Jean Vanier Essential Writings

Life in Community Community and Growth

In 1964 Jean Vanier moved into a dilapidated house in France with two companions and founded the first L’Arche community. This collection of Vanier’s essential writings reflects the great discovery of his life: “that we are healed by the poor and the weak, that we are transformed by them if we enter into relationship with them, that the weak and the vulnerable have a gift to give to our world”.

In an ever-more divided world, the wisdom and experience of Jean Vanier is of value to us all. This beautiful little book, presenting a selection of extracts from his best-selling book Community and Growth alongside wonderful illustrations by artist Seán O’Brien, gives invaluable advice on the challenges and joys of living in community.

Jean Vanier Logician of the Heart

CD Jean Vanier in Conversation with Raymond Friel

Michael W Higgins

Raymond Friel

Jean Vanier is a man of complexity and formal philosophical training, and one of the seminal religious and inspirational figures of our time. In this volume, Michael Higgins focuses on Vanier’s many interconnections — personal and conceptual — with the mighty and the humble, the pious and the secular, as well as the young and the seasoned.

In this revealing conversation with Raymond Friel, Vanier talks about his early life and influences, the inspiration between L’Arche, the need to understand and critique power in all its manifestations and the importance of vulnerability. He talks movingly about the need for healing in our world today and how Jesus in the Gospels, the loving revelation of God, brought healing to many.

What Do We Do with the Bible? Richard Rohr

Selective use of scripture has been used to justify many atrocities. So does this ancient, sometimes violent and contradictory text really have anything to teach us today? Can we read it in a contemplative and intelligent way? In this small but immensely important book, Rohr offers a method of interpretation that focuses on how Jesus read between the lines of the Hebrew scriptures to reveal God’s passion for relationship and transformation.

The English Pope Michael Pawlowski

Michael Pawlowski draws together the broad sweep of twelfth century life, religion and politics to reveal how one person, driven by faith and principle, has had a lasting influence on Christian Europe. Nicholas Breakspear rose from obscurity to become Pope Adrian IV at a critical time for the Papacy. He sat at the heart of a divided Europe, holding the balance between warring factions as he established the future role of the church. Although his reign as Pope was short, he had a lasting and decisive impact on those who met him and on the Papacy itself. Pawlowski’s account is ambitious, accessible and essential reading for anyone who wants to know more about that unique individual, the English Pope. Code: 1858 ISBN: 9780852315620 Price: £5.95
