Interrupting Silence

God's Command to Speak Out

By Walter Brueggemann

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

From one of the most influential Old Testament scholars of our times, a new and timely book on the Christian imperative to speak out against injustice.

Silence is a complex matter. It can refer to awe before unutterable holiness, but it can also refer to the coercion where some voices are silenced in the interest of control by the dominant voices. It is the latter silence that Walter Brueggemann explores, urging us to speak up in situations of injustice.

Interrupting Silence illustrates that the Bible is filled with stories where marginalized people break repressive silence and speak against it. Examining how maintaining silence allows the powerful to keep control, Brueggemann motivates readers to consider situations in their lives where they need to either interrupt silence or be part of the problem, convincing us that God is active and wanting us to act for justice.

The Power of Three

Norman Drummond
Authors:
Norman Drummond

Good things come in threes.All too often we end up tearing ourselves apart, losing our way: mind, body and spirit work against each other, rather than together. We know in our hearts that this is not how life should be.How has this happened? What is it in modern life that seems to make it so hard to live in balance between work and home, family and friends? Why is it so difficult to combine ambition with satisfaction, to achieve our goals without losing a realistic awareness of our limitations? What does it take to rediscover how life is meant to be lived - and how we can build on that to change the world around us for good?In THE POWER OF THREE Norman Drummond draws together a coherent response to these tough questions from a wide pool of experience. He outlines, firstly, the three wisdoms that help you work out who you are and where you should be heading; secondly, three principles which will guide you as you engage constructively to change the world around you; and thirdly, the three core values that must underpin everything if we are to truly make a difference.

Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?'Jesus replied: '"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: "Love your neighbour as yourself." All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.' Matthew 22:36-40Noisy neighbours, international terrorism, racism, teenage violence and religious fundamentalism ...from the personal to the local to the international and theological, it is our failure to engage 'the other' that is at the heart of so many of the problems we face. Beginning with Jesus' instruction to love God, and love our neighbour as we love ourselves, Brewin explores how we might better engage 'the other' within the Self, within God and within the worlds we inhabit.Drawing on Brewin's work as a theologian, poet and teacher this accessible and highly original work prompts us to reconsider the key question of 'what kind of selves do we need to be in order to live in harmony with others?

In an effort to win her trust, he befriends this strange young woman and begins to see in her qualities that most 'sane people' sorely lack. Gradually, he starts to question whether sanity resides outside the hospital walls...or inside.As the Bride Collector increases the pace and volume of his gruesome crucifixions, the case becomes even more personal to Raines when his friend and colleague, a beautiful young forensic psychologist, becomes the Bride Collector's next target. The FBI believes that the killer plans to murder seven women. Can Paradise help before it's too late?

The Sin No One Talks About (Jealousy)

R.T. Kendall
Authors:
R.T. Kendall

Jealousy is something that we all have to deal with - both in ourselves and in others. Rooted in our natural fears and insecurities, it has damaged relationships since the time of Cain and Abel and still does today - if we let it.In this wise and compassionate book, R. T. Kendall tackles, head-on, the sin that no one likes to admit to. He shows that it is only when we grasp that it is God we should aim to please that we will be able to recognise and overcome jealousy and, like Jesus, be jealous only for the glory of God.

Your Best Life Now

Joel Osteen
Authors:
Joel Osteen

Pastor Joel Osteen asks everyone to examine what he or she really believes. Why is this important? Because we will become what we believe. Our beliefs will prove either a barrier or vehicle as we strive to go higher, rise above our obstacles, and to live in health, abundance, and victory.In YOUR BEST LIFE NOW Osteen says, 'I am what I am today because of what I believed about myself yesterday. And I will be tomorrow what I'm believing about myself right now. God sees us as more than conquerors, able to fulfill our destiny. We need to see ourselves through the eyes of our Creator.' He says that our self-image should mirror exactly what God says about us, not what we feel or think. And he encourages readers to be people of faith, for if you can see the invisible, God will do the impossible.
