the quest to belong

By Jo Swinney

  • Paperback
  • £9.99

Jo Swinney's exploration of the idea of home is a heartfelt blend of personal memoir and deep pondering on this important question that will help us all in the quest to find somewhere we belong.

Where is Home?

This question troubles many of us. We may live far from where we grew up, away from those we love or in a culture not our own. But we all need somewhere to belong, to find a sense of home in this world.

Jo Swinney was born in the UK, but grew up in Portugal and France. She went to an English boarding school, did a gap year in southern Africa and in her twenties studied theology in Canada, where she met her American husband. Now back in the UK, she's had more reason than most to wonder what 'home' really means.

Is home where you come from - where you live now - where the people you love are - or what?

Interweaving a frank and poignant retelling of her own story with theological and psychological insights, Jo's original and authentic exploration of home in all its many and varied forms is a heartfelt call to find our home in the things that are truly of most value.

Biographical Notes

Jo Swinney is an author and speaker, the editor of Preach magazine, and a regular contributor to the website Christian Today. She lives in southwest London with her husband, an Anglican clergyman, and their two children.

Faitheism

Krish Kandiah
Authors:
Krish Kandiah

Over the past decade the Religion vs. Atheism debate has generated a lot more heat than light, with passionate advocates for both sides snarled up in antagonistic claim and counter-claim. Where does the truth lie?In fAiTHEISM Krish Kandiah asks us to take a long hard look at ourselves - and a more understanding look at each other. When we step away from the arguments for a moment and consider the real people on each side of this debate, he argues, we will discover that we share more than we realise.The desire to know the truth is in itself a uniting factor, even if we have reached different conclusions, and in testing our own assumptions, Krish contends, we can both grow in our own beliefs and understand each other better.In this challenging exploration of the myths about Christianity and Atheism, Krish draws on his experiences with the adoption charity Home for Good that he founded - on the one hand explaining the adoption and fostering process to churches and on the other, helping local authorities to understand where churches are coming from - to question the most common assumptions about Christians and Atheists. Time and again the evidence shows that the truth on the ground is not what one might expect - and the potential for genuine understanding is far greater than the antagonists on either side would have you believe.What if, by believing the best about each other, we could achieve the best for ourselves?What if the truth really can set us free?

As Kingfishers Catch Fire

Eugene Peterson
Authors:
Eugene Peterson

'Sixty years ago I found myself distracted.' So begins the introduction to As Kingfishers Catch Fire. What follows is the record of the collaboration of pastor and congregation in acts of worship and a life together. What Eugene Peterson, for thirty years pastor of a Maryland church, discovered is that the pastor's life is much more than just the preaching. It is also made up of attending to the details in all the circumstances and relationships specific to a people and a place - prayers at a hospital bed, conversations with the elderly, small talk on a street corner. This collection of spiritual writings presents Peterson's distinctive approach designed to communicate to his congregation, and the reader, 'the full counsel of God.' Seven sections containing seven teachings, each expertly crafted to stir the biblical imagination. In these teachings, Peterson walks the reader through Scripture to bring fresh insight to familiar names such as Moses, David, Isaiah, Solomon, Peter, Paul, and John of Patmos.

Black Sheep and Prodigals

Dave Tomlinson
Authors:
Dave Tomlinson

'Very interesting, it's all about not alienating people before they even think about crossing the threshold of where you worship.' Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2Do you feel more at home on the edges of faith than at the centre? Would you call yourself a bit of a black sheep? Too often Christian spirituality has been associated with conformity, or a subculture where people don't feel able to ask questions. But Dave Tomlinson, author of How to be a bad Christian, doesn't think it has to be like this; instead, our spiritual communities can be 'laboratories of the Spirit' - places where we can explore issues of faith and spirit with openness, imagination and creativity. Welcome to black sheep spirituality - where doubts and questions are an essential part of faith; where difference of opinion is a sign of a secure community; where divine revelation is embraced wherever it is found - in the arts, science and the natural world as well as religious tradition; and where faith is something that is lived and practised rather than embalmed in beliefs or ritual.'Theology for anyone and everyone' BBC Radio 2
