Thoughts In Solitude

6th July 2013 Christian Books 31 Comments
Thoughtful and eloquent, as timely (or timeless) now as when it was originally published in 1956, Thoughts in Solitude addresses the pleasure of a solitary life, as well as the necessity for quiet reflection in an age when so little is private. Thomas Merton writes: "When society is made up of men who know no interior solitude it can no longer be held together by love: and consequently it is held together by a violent and abusive authority. But when men are violently deprived of the solitude and freedom which are their due, the society in which they live becomes putrid, it festers with ...

Reframing Paul: Conversations in Grace & Community

5th July 2013 Christian Books 8 Comments
The Greco-Roman world was shaped by ideals and abstract ideas. The Apostle Paul left them behind. But they continue to shape evangelical teaching and practice. This picture contradicts the common impression of Paul as an abstract theologian, someone who wrestled with deep theological doctrine while hovering six feet above everyday reality. But in fact, it was the philosopher's of Paul's day--and even some of Paul's Christian opponents--who traded heavily in abstractions, one-way rhetoric and top-down hierarchies while depreciating the currency of common experience. By contrast, Paul the ...

On the Threshold of Transformation: Daily Meditations for Men

29th June 2013 Christian Books 31 Comments
For men, pain is very real. So is the power to transform it. “Richard Rohr is one of the wisest people on the planet . In a world of shallow spirituality, Richard takes us deep—deep into ourselves and deep into God. He has been a close friend and mentor to me over the years, but he has also been raising up generations of contemplative activists—Christians who pray and act for an end to the ugly things in this world like poverty, war, and arrogance. Richard is a spiritual grandfather. His life and teaching must make Francis of Assisi, and Jesus, smile.” —Shane Claiborne, author, ...

Crossing the Jordan: Meditations on Vocation

28th June 2013 Christian Books 4 Comments
In this Cowley Cloister Book, Sam Portaro explores questions of discernment and vocation through meditations on the life and unfolding vocation of Jesus. Rather than seeing vocation as a single goal to obtain once and for all, Portaro includes all the many dimensions of life experience, heredity, family roots, relationships, and personal maturity in his consideration of how we as Christians discern who we are called to become. Who am I, where am I going, and how do I find a life of my own? What is my calling? These questions are urgent for us all, and they were no less urgent for Jesus in ...
