Paradoxology

By Krish Kandiah

  • Paperback
  • £9.99

Why Christianity was never meant to be simple - an essential exploration of the paradoxes that lie at the heart of the Christian faith.

The Christian faith is full of apparent paradoxes:

- a compassionate God who sanctions genocide
- an all-powerful God who allows horrific suffering
- a God who owns everything yet demands so much from his followers
- a God who is distant and yet present at the same time

Many of us have big questions that the Christian faith seems to leave unanswered. So we push them to the back of our minds, for fear of destabilizing our beliefs. But leaving these questions unexamined is neither healthy for us, nor honouring to God. Rather than shying away from the difficult questions, we need to face them head on.

What if the tension between apparently opposing doctrines is exactly where faith comes alive? What if this ancient faith has survived so long not in spite of but precisely because of these apparent contradictions? What if it is in the difficult parts of the Bible that God is most clearly revealed?

Paradoxology makes a bold new claim: that the paradoxes that seem like they ought to undermine belief are actually the heart of our vibrant faith, and that it is only by continually wrestling with them - rather than trying to pin them down or push them away - that we can really move forward, individually and together.

These may seem like heavy theological ideas, yet the author approaches his theme in what is an easily read way through leading characters of the bible from Abraham to Paul. He challenges his readers to consider not only those passages that give us comfort, but also those "dark sayings" which so often perturb people. — Irish Catholic
Allow your mind to test your conclusions about the Bible. Like Thomas in the Easter Story, you might find that exploring doubts and questions will bring you to clearer vision. — Inspire Magazine
Amazing...I really loved it. The book real is an eye-opener that makes you look at the Bible in a different way. — Families First Magazine

The only problem is that, in the course of their movie-making, she has found herself falling for Sahil - the wrong brother. Twinkle soon realises that resistance is futile: The romance she's got isn't the one she scripted... But will it be enough?

LEAN IN meets FREAKONOMICS. How men and women can close the gender gap in the workplace.We all agree that men and women think and behave differently. Here, at last, is a book that shows both sides what to do about it.When Joanne Lipman wrote the article 'Women at Work: A Guide for Men' for Wall Street Journal, it immediately went viral. When the response continued to grow, she realised just how crucial an element was missing from the gender equality debate in the workplace: without men participating in the conversation, women can lean in all they want . . . but all they'll do is fall over. Lipman was contacted by scores of corporations and businesses around the world, where men (yes, men!) were eager for the playbook on how to work better with women, and how to make their companies work better for women. As she began speaking on the topic and continued to delve into the science, Lipman realised that there was an awful lot to say to men about women at work.In That's What She Said: What Men Need to Know and Women Need to Tell Them About Working Together, Lipman takes a 'no shame, no blame' approach to this thorny topic. Diving deep into the wide range of government initiatives, corporate experiments and social science research (and a few ongoing lawsuits along the way) she offers new revelations culled from the Enron scandal, from brain research, from transgender scientists, and from Iceland's campaign to 'feminise' an entire nation. Packed with fascinating and entertaining examplers, including how Google reinvented their hiring process after their famed open-ended questions ('How many piano tuners are there in the entire world?') produced, to their surprise and dismay, an overwhelmingly male work force; and how the latest research on the significant differences between how men and women email, That's What She Said is a rallying cry, for both men and women to finally take real steps towards closing the gender gap at work.(P)2018 Hodder & Stoughton Limited

The Ashes: It's All About the Urn

Graeme Swann
Authors:
Graeme Swann

Graeme Swann leads us on a compelling adventure through one of world sport's most engrossing rivalries. He knows as much as anybody about the heat of England v Australia battles, having played in three series wins and also the whitewash defeat of 2013-14 when its intensity ended his international career. However, it brought out some of his best displays in Test cricket. But he is just one of dozens of colourful characters to have added their chapters to this great tome. The mock obituary of English cricket in the Sporting Times of 1882 was the forerunner of summers and winters of heaven and hell, depending on which side of the divide you were situated. When it comes to on-field relations nothing quite compares to the over-my-dead-body feel of the Ashes.From Grace to Sir Don, the most graceful of them all. From the foulest play to the fairest - contrast the 1932-33 Bodyline series affair to the image of Andrew Flintoff hunched over a distraught Brett Lee in 2005. From Ray Illingworth's famous walk-off in the Seventies, when an England team-mate was assaulted by a spectator, to Steve Waugh's hugely emotional lap of honour when he retired a quarter of a century later. Swann's book will reveal the magic of a series that first gripped him in his front room in Northampton as an aspiring spin bowler in the mid-1980s.
