Catalogue 2018

Dear Friends, For most of my life I was content to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days’ of Obligation. I was a busy mother, working full-time and running a home. I helped out in the parish whenever I could, but really this was minimal for, as I say, life was demanding. For my part, I thought I was doing pretty well in terms of my relationship with God, all things considered. God understood, didn’t he? Then, without warning, it happened! Following a Redemptorist mission in my parish I came to realise that I wanted to be in a relationship with God rather than simply obeying the rules to attend Mass! I should add here that I only attended the parish mission because my teenage children were convinced that I wouldn’t have the stamina to get up for five consecutive days for Mass at 6am, yes 6am, and to attend a 1½ hour evening service Monday to Friday. I had to prove them wrong, didn’t I?! Anyway, after the mission a member of the mission team suggested I read Impressions of Jesus (page 6) by Fr Denis McBride C.Ss.R. This was the first time in my life, and I was 42 years of age, that I had spent money on a spiritual book. Money was tight, so how could I justify prioritising spending money on religious books and anyway, was it really necessary? I soon, very soon, came to realise that I was hungry and thirsty for knowledge and understanding about my faith. I had a burning desire, an insatiable desire to read more so that I could deepen my relationship with God and be closer to him. I never looked back. I am delighted to have been asked to present this Lent and Easter catalogue to you, as it is filled with opportunities for spiritual reading to help you deepen your relationship with the Lord, especially at this time of year. In addition to Fr Denis’ latest book Stations of the Cross – then and now (page 3), I wish to highlight The Gospel Journey Board Game (page 7) which is a fun, educational and stimulating way to learn about the Gospels. Both of these resources and others in this catalogue will provide you with an insight to your own growth in the faith. Also, look out for Adoremus Extra. It too will be filled with pages and pages of beautiful spiritual writings enabling you to prepare more fully for Adoremus: the National Eucharistic Congress and Pilgrimage (see the inside back cover for more details). I pray that you will be inspired by my few words to read, read and read more spiritual books so that you don’t find yourself, as I did, simply attending Mass on Sunday, rather than being in a glorious and fulfilling relationship with the three persons of the Holy Trinity. May your Lenten journey be a truly magnificent pilgrimage towards Easter Sunday! An employee of Redemptorist Publications

Lent Extra 2018

your journey towards Easter and the Eucharistic Pilgrimage and Congress

This edition of Lent Extra recalls Jesus’ plea to his close friends. “Be with me.” We all need someone to accompany us in good times and in bad. “A trouble shared is a trouble halved. A joy shared is a joy doubled.” “Be with me”… and so Lent Extra reflects on our daily personal and shared journey from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, where we too, like writer Luke de Pulford, may often find ourselves helping others to carry their cross. Like renowned sculptor Nic Fiddian-Green and serving prisoner Mary J, we also discover that our days, often filled with difficulty, also lead to finding hope and new vision. The Lent Extra theme, “Be with me” represents Jesus’ invitation and our prayer. Holy Week itself is an invitation and a response. Jesus’ words, “I am the bread of life”, are also both a promise and an answer to prayer. Without Jesus’ passion, death and resurrection, there could be no Eucharist. This edition of Lent Extra, as always, focuses on Lent and Easter. It also reflects on the forthcoming Adoremus, the first National Eucharistic Pilgrimage and Congress to be held in England and Wales since 1908. The Eucharistic Congress, with its theme, “I am the bread of life”, can potentially become a landmark on our pilgrimage towards Jesus. It will help us to respond spiritually and physically to his invitation to “Be with me”.

Recommended Reading for Lent

by Fr Denis McBride C.Ss.R.

One of the leading voices in the Catholic Church, Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, has given a series of interviews about his life and his hopes in I Have Learned from the Least. This memoir traces his upbringing, his early vocation to the priesthood, and his unsurprising rise in the Philippine church and on the world stage. He is currently the archbishop of Manila, who in the words of Pope Francis is “a shepherd who smells of his sheep.” He acknowledges that his deep faith was first nourished in his family. I particularly enjoyed reading about his journey to the priesthood. At the age of fourteen he decided he would be a medical doctor. His parish priest entered him for a scholarship at the Jesuit Athenaum University: during the exam he did not understand the section “Type of Vocation” so he asked the supervising priest who told him that since this was an exam to enter the seminary, it was an important question. He was furious at this clerical trick. Afterwards the fury moved to confusion. He didn’t pass the entrance exam but stayed open to the idea. He was turned down by the seminary three times but was eventually accepted “under supervision” for six months. That was the unusual beginning of a long road. He shares his thoughts on social justice, ecology and the challenges facing the Church in the twenty-first century. Whatever the topic, what shines through is his profound commitment to the Gospel and all those who inhabit the margins of life. It is a wonderful read for Lent. Denis McBride C.Ss.R.

Over the Lent and Easter period, Fr Denis McBride is looking forward to reading these two titles: Four Ministries, One Jesus

Exploring your vocation with the four Gospels Richard A Burridge

This book is for all who feel called to a life of Christian ministry, and want to make sure their calling is firmly based on the teaching and model of Jesus, as provided in the four Gospels. Widely respected as an international expert in Gospel studies, Richard Burridge is also a brilliant communicator with many years of pastoral experience in selecting and training people for the priesthood.

My Life, My Hopes Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle

Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, the Archbishop of Manila, has emerged in recent years as an important voice of the Church. In this autobiographical work, Cardinal Tagle, with openness and frankness, freely shares his journey of vocation. Readers will enjoy his refreshing insights on social justice, caring for the poor and gain comfort from his reassurance for the future of the Church.

A Biography Tom Wright

In this superbly detailed biography, Tom Wright traces Paul’s career from zealous persecutor of the fledgling Church, through his journey as the world’s greatest missionary theologian, to his likely death as a Christian martyr at the hands of Nero in the mid 60s CE. Drawing judiciously on the latest research into Jewish, Greek and Roman worlds, and enriched by a wealth of critical insight into Paul’s own writings, this is the most rounded portrait of the apostle ever painted – his development, motivations, spiritual struggles and intellectual achievements, as well as his lasting impact over two millennia.

Denis McBride C.Ss.R. Stations of the Cross then and now Denis McBride C.Ss.R.

In Catholic churches across the world, a series of simple crosses or fourteen images - the Stations of the Cross describe the passion and death of Jesus. They begin with Pontius Pilate condemning Jesus to death and steadily move towards the moment when his mother and a few faithful followers place Jesus’ body in a borrowed tomb. Sometimes there is a fifteenth station: the resurrection shows us that Jesus’ suffering fulfilled a purpose. Even on the cross, Jesus was not alone. Yet the way of the cross is not confined to a lonely road in Jerusalem two thousand years ago: it is a busy highway winding through every village, town and city in our modern world; the experience of millions of people who face personal agony and loss at some moment or other. Jesus’ suffering and death are, for each one of us, our reality today. Fr Denis McBride contrasts the beauty and solemn simplicity of the more traditional Stations by artist Curd Lessig with modern images that challenge us to link Jesus’ story to the struggle of our everyday lives. Whether we walk in solitude or with others, this book translates the passion of Jesus into our own life and times; Let Stations of the Cross then and now shine new light on your own journey.


As soon as it was morning, the chief priests he with the elders and scribes and the whole cou Jesus, led him away, and handed him over asked him, “Are you the King of the Jews?” H “You say so.” Then the chief priests accuse things. Pilate asked him again, “Have you how many charges they bring against you.” no further reply, so that Pilate was amazed.

Now at the festival he used to release a pr anyone for whom they asked. Now a man was in prison with the rebels who had com during the insurrection. So the crowd cam ask Pilate to do for them according to his c answered them, “Do you want me to release of the Jews?” For he realised that it was out the chief priests had handed him over. But stirred up the crowd to have him release Ba instead. Pilate spoke to them again, “Then w me to do with the man you call the King of shouted back, “Crucify him!” Pilate asked th evil has he done?” But they shouted all the him!” So Pilate, wishing to satisfy the c Barabbas for them; and after flogging Jesus over to be crucified.

Stations of the Cross – then and now offers a unique opportunity to accompany Jesus – then and now – as you travel through Lent towards Easter. “Stay here and keep watch with me. Watch and pray”… and let this beautiful audio book help to shed light on your own journey to God. Denis McBride is a Redemptorist priest from Scotland who is now Director of Redemptorist Publications. In his post-graduate education he first studied psychology at Fordham University and then the New Testament under the great scripture scholar Raymond Brown at Union Theological Seminary, New York. After winning a scholarship to Harvard University, he returned to England to work at Hawkstone Hall, the international pastoral centre in Shropshire, England. Since then, his principal areas of interest and writing have been the human story and the Gospels: his work has always struggled to keep open a conversation between the drama of people’s lives and the four great narratives of Christian beginning. If that conversation ends, he argues, Christianity will be consigned to a museum.

Seasons of the Word (New Edition) Reflections on the Sunday Readings Denis McBride C.Ss.R.

“We all know that the word of God does not work automatically: it has to be worked on, opened up, wrestled with, prayed about.” In this book, now in a new edition to celebrate twenty years since its first publication, Fr Denis McBride takes his readers through the full liturgical cycle of readings for Sundays and feast days. His insightful reflections throw new light on familiar and unfamiliar passages of scripture. Wearing his scholarship lightly, Fr Denis uses his background in biblical studies and psychology to open up the readings in a way that is accessible for all readers. Sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, always thought-provoking and informative, this book is a vital tool for preachers and for all those who want to deepen their understanding of the word of God as it is found in our liturgy. A CD-ROM is included, containing all the texts, along with additional prayers and introductions to the readings.

Journeying with Jonah

the struggle to find yourself Denis McBride C.Ss.R.

The prophet Jonah is a sympathetic partner, albeit a curious one, to help us review our lives. Although a believer in God, Jonah struggles to come to terms with the awful strangeness of God’s choices, particularly God’s mercy; he grapples to find his true self and purpose in life; he tries to flee from the presence of God; he is angry when he finds that God is not angry but all-merciful. Jonah is offered to us as an unusual teacher – awkward, reluctant, disobedient, opinionated, fearful, flighty: the prophet who remains stubborn to the end. But his story celebrates the beauty of the indiscriminate mercy of God, a message for our time. The story of Jonah is for anyone who is reflecting on their own life. Code: 1581 Price: £9.95 ISBN: 9780852314388

Journeying with Jonah: 2CDs Denis McBride C.Ss.R.

In 2016, Fr Denis addressed the annual meeting of the Conference of Religious of Ireland (CORI) held in Dublin. His two lectures, about an hour each, reflect on Journeying with Jonah: the struggle to find yourself. Jonah appears as someone who has emerged from among us: someone who has to struggle to find his true identity, someone who has to discover his direction in life, someone who has to allow his own outlook on life to be shaped by God’s mercy. This is an ancient narrative that speaks gently to our own stories today.

We watch Jesus move from the active voice to the passive voice; from making things happen, to enduring the decisions of others. This same movement is at the heart of all our lives.

how the Catholic Church and the LGBT community can enter into a relationship of respect, compassion and sensitivity James Martin SJ

In this inspirational book Jesuit James Martin shows us all how to engage in a respectful dialogue with those Catholic brothers and sisters who, sadly, are often made to feel unwelcome in the Church today, namely the LGBT community (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender). The dialogue must be conducted with respect, compassion and sensitivity, reminding the LGBT Catholics, in the words of Cardinal Joseph Tobin, the former Superior General of the Redemptorists, “that they are as much a part of our Church as any other Catholic”. Although written for the Church in the USA this book is full of pastoral wisdom for all Catholics in Britain and Ireland. Code: 185553 Price: £15.99 ISBN: 9780062694317

In the Rosary, we contemplate the love and mercy of God the Father, now made manifest to us in the person of Jesus his son; we ponder too the presence of the Holy Spirit through whose power Jesus was conceived in his mother’s womb, performed all his great works of mercy, offered himself for our sake on the cross and rose triumphantly from the dead; we become more aware that the risen Jesus has given us that same Holy Spirit when he established his Church on earth. We contemplate all these mysteries of Jesus through the eyes of his Mother Mary as we pray the Rosary. Code: 1731 Price: £7.95 ISBN: 9780852314654

Embraced by Mercy

Going to Mass

Finding Forgiveness

Fr McManus enables us to absorb more gratefully the amazing good news that “God’s mercy is from age to age” (Luke 1:50). Step by step, we will be guided along the road of divine mercy, receiving afresh Jesus’ revelation of the Father’s mercy, in the parable of the Prodigal Son, and hearing again St Paul’s personal testimony of how he received God’s mercy.

Going to Mass can be seen as one of the defining marks of being Catholic, but what do Catholics do when we go to Mass? In this insightful book, Fr Jim McManus considers how our participation at Mass influences and confirms our membership of the people of God. He looks in detail at the various actions and prayers which are part of the celebration of the Mass.

Fr Jim McManus and Stephanie Thornton look at every facet of unforgiveness – its causes, symptoms and consequences. They demonstrate the truly healing power of forgiveness and guide the reader in search of this elusive quality.

The Passion and the Cross Ronald Rolheiser

Ronald Rolheiser brings his characteristic blend of learning and lived experience to the subject of the passion and death of Jesus Christ. He throws light on some of the most fundamental questions for Christians of all ages, such as “how did Jesus take away my sins?” His answer is that, “He takes it away by transforming it, by taking it inside of him and not giving it back.” This is a book for those whose deep questions about the central events of the Christian faith have not been answered in adulthood.

Knowing Jesus James Alison

More than any another book, Knowing Jesus by James Alison has deepened my understanding of the mystery of the resurrection and its significance for the human race. Alison develops a rich reading of the life and death of Jesus in terms of the “intelligence of the victim” and argues persuasively that from the beginning of salvation history God was prompting us to build a society (what Jesus would call a “reign of God”) in which the victim and outcast were cared for and honoured. In the revelation of God in the life and death of Jesus, God is revealed for what he really is: the forgiving victim. Code: 111497 Price: £9.99 ISBN: 9780281065035

The Revolution of Tenderness

Being a Catholic in today’s Church Raymond Friel

Gospel Values for Catholic Schools a practical guide for today Raymond Friel

Raymond Friel explores issues facing the Catholic Church today, with both humour and passion, while drawing on the remarkable and often moving testimonies of twelve ordinary Catholics. Beginning with a survey of the Church’s journey over the last hundred years or so, Raymond Friel draws on his own cradle Catholic upbringing to reflect the huge changes taking place in and around the Church, with a particular focus on the inspiration of Pope Francis and ways to develop a personal faith.

Raymond Friel brings his vast experience of Catholic educational leadership to bear in addressing the centrality of Gospel values in the current climate in which the very existence of schools with a religious character, which pre-date state schools, is increasingly being challenged. As the title suggests, Friel’s account is rooted firmly in the Gospels and encompasses a coherent narrative of the significance of Gospel values for the Catholic school.

Recommended Reading for Lent

by Diana Klein

Journeying with Jesus a companion’s guide Denis McBride C.Ss.R.

This is a book that can be used at any time of the year but I think it’s intended to be used during Lent. I love the way the reader is invited to join Jesus on his journey. You’re given a description of the setting you find yourself in. You observe Jesus at close quarters in his challenges and you’re challenged to consider how you would react/do react in similar circumstances. You’re invited to encounter Jesus in your ordinary experiences. This is a book you can read systematically during Lent – or pick up whenever you’re stuck in your prayer and need a kick start. Highly recommended. Code: 1467 Price: £14.95 ISBN: 9780852313589

Encounters of Evangelisation

How to Survive Working in a Catholic Parish

Although fewer people are coming to Mass today, people still turn to the Church to celebrate at key moments in their lives: they are saying that they are aware of the significance of these key experiences in their lives. This book leads parishes to make the most of these brief encounters as there may be few other opportunities to engage with them.

If you do voluntary work in a parish, if you are a priest, a seminarian or a parish employee - or if you are thinking about working in a parish - this book will help you understand how Catholic parishes work, how parish life is organised and what it's like to work in them. How to Survive Working in a Catholic Parish is a practical and user-friendly guide to surviving (and thriving) in a Catholic parish.

Say it to God

Things My Dog has Taught Me

In Search of Prayer: The Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent Book 2018 Luigi Gioia

about being a better human Jonathan Wittenberg

In this wonderful, warm account of one man and his dog, Jonathan Wittenberg says his dogs have taught him - more than anything else - how to appreciate the wonderful world in which we live and how to develop better relationships with his friends and families. Jonathan brings all the big themes of friendship, faithfulness, kindness, cruelty, grief, prayer and spiritual companionship to the fore, and shows us how we can learn so much from a dog’s approach to life.

In Say it to God, Luigi Gioia provides a welcome encouragement to all those who feel the need to freshen their practice of prayer. For Gioia, prayer is not about methods or techniques, but trusting that God is truly interested in everything that happens to us and wants to hear about it. The book leads the reader into the theological aspects of prayer and how it relates to Christ, to the Holy Spirit and to the Church. This is done without using complex theological concepts but simply through scriptural quotations. Chapters are kept brief intentionally to make the book suitable for daily reading over the Lenten period. With a foreword by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Say it to God demonstrates that the everyday, even the most mundane of tasks and situations, can be applied in deepening our practice of prayer.

Approaching the Study of Theology

Pope Francis and the Theology of the People

An introduction to key thinkers, concepts, methods and debates Anthony C Thiselton

Rafael Luciani

Translated by Philip Berryman Pope Francis has offered a bold challenge to an “economy that kills”, identifying in particular a form of globalisation that turns people into disposable consumers and increases the widening gap between the rich and poor. In doing so, he has drawn not only from the social teaching of Latin American Church, but also in a particular way from a school of theology that arose in Argentina called “Theology of the People”. A type of liberation theology, it emphasises respect for the culture and popular religious expressions of the poor. Code: 1040113 Price: £23.99 ISBN: 9781626982529

Opening with an engaging history of the subject, this book maps the major landmarks and outlines the main issues of current debate in three parts: Part 1: Approaches Descriptions of the main approaches developed by scholars to study the subject, with lively case histories and working examples showing the approaches in action, and assessing their lasting value.

Part 2: Concepts and Issues Brief introductions to their origins and evolution, highlighting their significance in the work of major thinkers.

Part 3: Key Terms Concise explanations of all the words and phrases that readers need to know in order to fully grasp the subject.

Lent Reflection

Lent is the rainbow Sr Janet Fearns FMDM


want to take you to a place where you might never have been. I want to take you to Auschwitz. You will have seen photographs in the newspapers and on television, so you can probably imagine the emaciated faces and bodies of men, women and children held captive in a concentration camp, the name of which will forever remain a symbol of horror and cruelty. I want you to imagine the huts and the crematoria surrounded by barbed wire. Even today, the soil is barren and a witness to scenes which we hope and pray will never happen again. Yet, in spite of Auschwitz, BergenBelsen, Theresienstadt – and Guantánamo Bay – there is no peace in our world. Violence and cruelty have not ended. Human rights are still disregarded and human beings discarded in the clamour to satisfy human greed and the search for power at any cost. The date is 28 May 2006. I am doing the live radio and television English broadcast for Vatican Radio for Pope Benedict’s visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau. He has already refused the well-meaning offer for the Polish President to accompany him as he walks alone towards the wall of death where so many prisoners died. He has visited the cell of Maximilian Kolbe, the Franciscan who asked if he could take the place of the family man and was murdered in his place. Pope Benedict then stands in the open as a Jewish choir sang Kaddish, mourning the cruel deaths of millions. It has been raining heavily. As the choir sings, the television cameras travel over the site of the concentration camp. It is unbelievably moving to see the huts, the crematoria and the barbed wire. Yet, suddenly, God speaks. As the cameras pass by the crematoria, the black clouds break and a magnificent rainbow crosses the sky. God has repeated his promise of “never again!” God speaks in that rainbow and I am perhaps not the only member of Vatican Radio staff to cry. God chooses a rainbow to remind the world of a different reality than “man’s inhumanity to man”.

After his baptism in the Jordan, Jesus went into the wilderness, where he stayed for forty days. The Gospel tells us that, at his baptism, the heavens were torn apart and God spoke to him – but then he went into the wilderness, a lonely place where solitude could easily become loneliness and despair. And yet it is also a place of hope. Jesus emerged from that wilderness convinced of his mission, “proclaiming the good news of God”. Even the wilderness has the qualities of a rainbow. I spent six years living on the banks of one of Zambia’s largest lakes. During the rainy season, the sky would go black with heavy clouds. The waters of the lake turned from blue to black. Yet, on the horizon, a thin line of gold proved that the heaviest storm could not entirely send away the sunlight. In the midst of deafening rolls of thunder, lightning pierced the darkness with its exquisitely beautiful blue light. The thunderstorm was itself a promise of a rainbow. During Lent, we walk into the wilderness with Jesus. Did he have a clear idea of the path ahead of him? I suspect not. If he had known every step of his way, he would have missed out on an essential part of our daily human life: the journey through the dark, through the floods, the uncertainty, the storms and the vast wilderness in search of the rainbow. Jesus is God and also a human being with a deep need to discover the rainbow. God gave Noah and his family the rainbow of hope. The despair of Auschwitz gave way to another rainbow. After his time in the wilderness, Jesus became our rainbow, bringing us the good news of God’s faithful love. Lent is so often seen as a time of self-denial and of penance, but, in fact, it is a time for walking with Jesus in search of the rainbow of his life, love and hope. Perhaps Lent is the rainbow because it is a promise of the resurrection.

The Mystery of the Cross

Praying the stations with Pope Francis David M Knight

Enter more deeply into the passion of our Lord and the mysteries of salvation with this simple, beautiful and powerful Way of the Cross. Starting with an inspiring quote from Pope Francis, each station leads us into one of the multiple Mysteries of the Cross: the mystery of suffering, of failure, of faith, of mission, of divine weakness, of freedom from fear, of hope in hopelessness, of vulnerable love and more. As we walk with Jesus, each station invites us “to die a little more to what holds us back” and to live a little more in the way that leads to the fullness of life.

During this Lenten season, allow these scripture selections and prayers by Revd Brian Thomas draw you near to God’s presence as you meditate on the themes of forgiveness, prayer, scripture, praise and the sacraments, sharing Jesus’ suffering, death and resurrection for you.

As Christians, we strive to live and love as Jesus did. In order to love well, we need to practice. And practicing as a family helps everyone to grow in their faith together each day. During Lent, we more sharply reflect upon the Word of God and upon modelling our behaviours after those of our Saviour. This booklet is filled with reflections and activities that gently invite the whole family to practice love for Lent, even though love never goes out of season.

The Bible for Everyone A New Translation John Goldingay and Tom Wright

Why another translation of the Bible? As Tom Wright observes: 'Translating the Bible is something that each generation ought to be doing. Just as Jesus taught us to pray for our daily bread, we can never simply live on yesterday's bread, on the interpretations and translations of previous generations. The Bible for Everyone is the result of a passionate conviction that scripture should be something that everyone can read, understand and enjoy. Two world-renowned Bible scholars and communicators have therefore undertaken a tremendous task: to draw together, revise and supplement the translations that appear in their popular "For Everyone" commentaries, making a rounded, readable and reliable version of the Bible that will prove helpful to people of all religious backgrounds at every stage of their lives.

General Spiritual Reading A Heart Like Mary’s

Nothing More and Nothing Less

A Lent Course based on the film I, Daniel Blake Virginia Moffatt

The film I, Daniel Blake, directed by Ken Loach and winner of Best British Film at the BAFTAs and Palme D'Or at Cannes, tells the story of two people's struggles with an oppressive and dehumanising benefits system, and represents themes of oppression, compassion and radical response that are at the heart of the Christian gospel. This five-week Lent study, suitable for groups or individuals, encourages readers to consider the stories of the film and how Christians may be called to respond. The chapters cover: Systems of oppression; Staying human; Compassion in the darkness; Fighting back or giving in?; and the suffering servant. Nothing More and Nothing Less should be studied alongside the film of I, Daniel Blake the book includes scene timings for key scenes, discussion points, meditations and suggested prayers.

A Heart Like Mary's is the perfect book for all Catholics wishing to begin or deepen their devotion to Mary. Author and Marian theologian Revd Edward Looney guides us through thirtyone daily meditations on the unique characteristics of Mary's heart. This easy-to-read and engaging monthly devotional is full of practical lessons that address the personal challenges we all face as Mary's fellow pilgrims walking the path of faith. In the midst of feeling lost in his prayer life and relationship with God, Fr Looney found himself reflecting on who Mary is and how he could be more like her. He learned that by daily meditating on Mary's attributes and praying for the grace to have a heart like hers he could turn his pessimistic and critical thoughts into optimistic and charitable ones.

Born to Fly

The Landscape of Faith

God is Not Nice

Based on the caterpillarchrysalis-butterfly metaphor of Hidden Wings, this book offers spiritual insights and wisdom from the likes of Teilhard de Chardin to help us explore what it means to be an agent of spiritual change in our own life and that of the world around us. Written as more of a workbook of spiritual exercises than Hidden Wings, Born to Fly also includes a five-week study guide which readers may choose to study over the Lent period.

Alister McGrath is one of the world's leading Christian theologians. In this new book, he tells of his discovery of Christianity while a student at Oxford University, and takes readers on a panoramic tour of the landscape of the Christian faith. Using the great themes of the Creeds as a map, McGrath shares his delight in exploring their meaning, significance and continuing importance. This engrossing book will prove invaluable to clergy, church leaders and theological students.

Ulrich Lehner reintroduces Christians to the true God—not the polite, easy-going, divine therapist who doesn’t ask much of us, but the Almighty God who is unpredictable, awe-inspiring and demands our entire lives. Stripping away the niceties with a sling blade, Lehner shows that God is more strange and beautiful than we imagine, and wants to know and transform us in the most intimate way. God Is Not Nice challenges the God of popular culture and many of our churches and reintroduces the God of the Bible and traditional Christianity.

Evelyn Underhill’s Prayer Book

The Canticle of the Creatures

Edited by Robyn Wrigley-Carr

Such is the far-reaching influence of the modern mystic Evelyn Underhill that she is commemorated liturgically by the Church of England on 15 June. Her best-known book, Mysticism, was widely read in the first half of the twentieth century and her work continues to have great impact on the theology of contemporary spiritual writers, such as Richard Rohr. Between 1924 and 1938, Evelyn Underhill compiled two personal prayer books for use when conducting spiritual retreats at Pleshey (the retreat house for the diocese of Chelmsford). The prayers were carefully selected and include quotes from a variety of theologians and writers in Christian spirituality, as well as her own very rich, metaphorical and theologically deep prayers. This volume makes these collections available for the first time.

for Saint Francis of Assisi Luigi Santucci, translated by Demetrio Yocum

A masterful narration of the stories of the animals who appear in St Francis of Assisi’s life, by Luigi Santucci. In a beautiful gift book format, this title has four-colour illustrations throughout that capture the simple, yet joyful spirit of St Francis that has inspired generations. St Francis’ most famous and evocative sermons to the birds and the wolf of Gubbio are included and remind us of the traits of this beloved saint that led the current Pope to choose him as a namesake; a deep concern for nature, justice for the poor and interior peace.

In All Seasons, For All Reasons Praying Throughout the Year James Martin

Inspired by Jesus' prayer, his disciples asked him, “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1). This book gives many time-honoured answers to that request. There is a wealth here of fresh ways to pray, such as using nature and dreams as inspiration and getting in touch with one's emotions. Key topics such as distractions, dryness and doubt, as well as joy and finding God in all things, are covered. The Church's tradition, from the Our Father to the Eucharist, the saints and pilgrimages, is offered as a resource for the individual. God meets you where you are. And the fact that you are holding this book in your hand means you are already open to that encounter. Code: 111494 Price: £6.99 ISBN: 9780281079452

Living Community Cardinal Chito Tagle

“A Christian community does not exist for its members only. It exists for the whole world, for the whole of humanity.” In these simple, heartfelt reflections, Cardinal Tagle shares how Christian community offers rich possibilities for love, faith, hope, and unity in diversity. Through personal stories and pastoral example, Easter People opens up the path of true Christian community in a world in desperate need: physically and spiritually.

The Spirit of Simplicity

Jean-Baptiste Chautard O.C.S.O.

Few people have ever seen or heard of The Spirit of Simplicity: it has been hidden for almost seventy years after quietly being published by the Abbey of Gethsemani in 1948. Anonymously translated and annotated by a young monk named Thomas Merton, the book's author, who also is not mentioned by name in the original edition, is Jean-Baptiste Chautard, the famous French Cistercian whose only other book, The Soul of the Apostolate, has been a favourite of modern saints and popes, including Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. Every generation struggles with the question of simplicity. In the history of our faith, there have been no more eloquent voices calling us back to simplicity than the monks of the Cistercian Order, from Bernard of Clairvaux, to Chautard, to Merton, all of whom contribute to this powerful book.

Why I Am Catholic

Spiritual Direction

Why I Am Catholic serves as a compelling reproposal of the Church for former Catholics, a persuasive argument for truth and beauty to those who have become jaded and disenchanted with religion, and at the same time offers practising Catholics a much-needed dose of confidence and clarity to affirm their faith against an increasingly sceptical culture.

An essential, lively and comprehensive guide to spiritual direction: how it works; how to get it; how it is life-changing – for those who are interested in growing spiritually and for their spiritual directors. Responding to the tone and texture of millennials’ questions and concerns, Malloy’s book emphasises spiritual direction as a relationship with God that leads to both personal and social transformation.

Memories, People, Places Terry Waite

Some people long to find it, others long to escape it. But, whether we welcome or dread it, solitude is something we all experience in different forms at different points in our lives. After enduring nearly five years of solitary confinement, in cruel and terrifying conditions, Terry Waite discovered that he was drawn to find out more about the power of solitude in the lives of other people. The result is this haunting book, in which he recalls his encounters with people who have experienced some very different ways of being solitary: among them the peaceful solitude of remote and beautiful places; the unsought and often unnoticed solitude of lonely people living in the midst of busy cities; the deceptive solitude of those living in the twilight world of espionage; the enforced solitude of the convict and the prisoner of war; and finally the inescapable solitude of those who are drawing near to death.

The Intercessions Resource Book Breathes New Life into Prayer John Pritchard

Compelled by the belief that a large number of Christians want to come to God with others' needs, John Pritchard has created this follow-up to his hugely successful volumes, The Intercessions Handbook and The Second Intercessions Handbook. In a gentle, accessible, style he offers “starter” ideas and introductory material to help those who lead intercessions in public worship and small groups, and aims to open the reader's imagination to enrich their own style of praying. Everyday language, images and experiences are used in each of the three main sections. Code: 111496 Price: £9.99 ISBN: 978028107821

Impossible is a Dare

One for Sorrow

Love is His Meaning

Featuring real-life rescues and the voices of Rend Collective’s Patrick Thompson, actor Tom Lister, Athena and James Pond, Natalie Grant and many others, this book is about more than fighting slavery. It will inspire its readers to find and fight for their own vision and see the impossible for what it really is… nothing but a dare.

One for Sorrow relates to the story of the loss of 21-year-old Tom from cancer, and how his family struggled to live through the aftermath. When Alan started to write the book, he thought it was about his son’s illness and death. He soon realised, however, that it dealt largely with his own journey through that painful “valley of the shadow of death”. His core beliefs were challenged and his perspective on life changed.

Keith Ward explores the various figures of speech and images that Jesus used, and finds there are different ways of expressing and evoking the self-giving love of God, manifested supremely in Jesus’ life. They communicate spiritual truths, often in a poetic way. They encourage us to take our own moral decisions with sensitivity and care for others and show us God’s love will never abandon anyone.
