Fall to Grace

A Revolution of God, Self and Society

By Jay Bakker

  • Paperback
  • £11.99

Jay Bakker explores the radical, transformative, and inclusive nature at the heart of Jesus's message: grace.

If anyone ever had a reason to leave the faith, Jay Bakker did. When he was only 11 years old, his parents' PTL ministry was caught in a high-profile accounting fraud scandal, and his family was devastated by his father's affair and his parents' subsequent divorce.
A disillusioned Bakker turned to drugs and alcohol and left his childhood beliefs behind. But along the way, an interesting thing happened: Bakker came to understand, through all his pain, what God's grace was really all about.In this book Bakker will explore the true nature of grace and what it means in everyday life. With disarming humility, poignant observations,and spot-on theology, Bakker both challenges Christians to reassess
their understanding of salvation and entices non-Christians to give
Jesus a chance.

Jay is right: a revolution is taking place. And it's a revolution of grace, affecting our view of God, our view of ourselves, and our view of neighbour, stranger, enemy, and outcast. As I read this honest and challenging book, I kept thinking, "Sign me up for the revolution!" — Brian D. McLaren, speaker, activist and author
A real eye-opener for Christians, non-Christians and - perhaps especially - Christians who would sometimes rather not call themselves that. — Daniel Radosh, author of Rapture Ready! Adventure in the Parallel Universe of Christian Pop Culture

The Passion and the Cross

Ronald Rolheiser
Authors:
Ronald Rolheiser

'Full of profound insights ... These meditations on Christ's Passion culminate in a completely convincing understanding of the Resurrection. Rolheiser's great gift is to make faith real. This deserves to become a classic.' - The TabletDaily readings from Lent, from one of today's most influential spiritual writers. When we think of Jesus' passion and crucifixion, we often think of his physical suffering and death. But the Gospels themselves do not emphasise Jesus' physical sufferings; instead, the Gospel writers want us to understand Jesus as a faithful lover of humanity, who undergoes moral and emotional suffering without resentment or bitterness. Drawing from Scripture, story, theology, contemporary culture and his own life, Fr Ronald Rolheiser - one of the most influential spiritual writers of our day - invites us to a new understanding of redemption, and offers profound insights into the meaning of our own loss and suffering.

The Song of Songs

Charlie Cleverly
Authors:
Charlie Cleverly

The Song of Songs is redolent with poetic imagery, featuring as it does the love songs of a man and a woman as they explore their relationship. Down the centuries it has often been interpreted either as a sexually-charged love story or an entirely metaphorical imagining of the relationship between God and his people. In this deeply-felt book Charlie Cleverly argues that both interpretations are critical to a true understanding of this book that lies right at the heart of the Bible. If our relationships with one another and with God are not both fully in tune with our humanity, in all its richness, and with our spirituality in its highest form, then we will fall short of all we can be in our lives.Drawing on a wide range of sources, literary and theological and across the ages, Charlie Cleverly makes the case for a new, rounded understanding of this important book.

Prayer

Timothy Keller
Authors:
Timothy Keller

'"Can't anyone teach me how to pray?" Millions of people today are asking the same question. There is a sense of the necessity of prayer - we have to pray. But how?'Prayer is central to Christian faith; indeed, as Timothy Keller notes in his introduction, it is the main way we experience deep change. Yet so many people struggle with prayer - a struggle that the author himself has shared. This wise and inspiring book is the fruit of those struggles, offering a real and glorious vision of what it can mean to seek God in prayer. Keller begins by giving a theological underpinning of what prayer actually is - both conversation and encounter with a personal God - before describing how we can learn to pray, and then deepen that prayer. Finally he gives detailed, practical suggestions on how to make prayer a part of the reality of daily life.
