Hidden Christmas

Timothy Keller
Authors:
Timothy Keller

The New Testament begins not with a dramatic narrative or lofty poetry but with a genealogy. Provocatively, Matthew's gospel includes women in Jesus' family line - something that wasn't customary in an ancient culture, where women were largely powerless and uninfluential. In this surprising take on the Christmas story, Tim Keller reveals how, by focusing on the women in Jesus' birth narratives, a colourful, scandalous, and refreshing tale of grace emerges.

The Culture of God

Nadim Nassar
Authors:
Nadim Nassar

Father Nadim Nassar is the Church of England's only Syrian priest, and an outspoken advocate for western Christians to recognise their Middle-Eastern heritage. In The Culture of God, his first book, Father Nadim argues that there are three cultures Christians need to understand when they read the Bible: the culture of the Bible itself, their own culture, and finally 'the culture of God'. Ultimately it was Jesus who had direct access to the culture of God; and so we need to begin by understanding Jesus in his own first-century Middle Eastern culture.This fresh and provocative book, passionately argued, is an unfolding of what Father Nadim sees as the culture of God and how, when we understand it, it transforms our understanding of our faith.

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

Interrupting Silence

Walter Brueggemann
Authors:
Walter Brueggemann

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.

Timothy Keller
Authors:
Timothy Keller

Combining two of Keller's most popular books about Jesus, readers are invited to explore the heart of the Christian faith.King's Cross - Drawing from Mark's gospel, Keller explains how Jesus' identity as king and his purpose in dying on the cross have meaning and significance on a cosmic scale as well as for the individual.Hidden Christmas - The New Testament begins not with a dramatic narrative or lofty poetry but with a genealogy. Provocatively, Matthew's gospel includes women in Jesus' family line - something that wasn't customary in an ancient culture, where women were largely powerless and uninfluential.

Home

Jo Swinney
Authors:
Jo Swinney

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.

The Wisdom House

Rob Parsons
Authors:
Rob Parsons

You don't always have to learn the hard way.On the spur of the moment, the morning after the birth of one of his grandchildren, Rob Parsons wrote the baby a letter.And then Rob began to think about how he hoped he'd have the chance to talk with all his grandchildren as they grew. He imagined them coming into his study, settling into one of the two comfy armchairs in front of the fire and opening up about the challenges they were facing.Perhaps it would be when they were beginning their first job, buying their first house, getting married or starting a family. Or perhaps they'd talk long into the night, when their hearts were broken or friends had betrayed them. Perhaps he would have the chance to help them rebuild the dream that somebody had trodden on.'Come on in, take a seat - tell me what's been going on...'Rob knew he wouldn't have all the answers. But maybe he could help - just a little.
