Sunday Matters Year A (eBOOK/ePUB)
$28.00
This book contains reflections on the Sunday Bible Readings for Year A in the Roman Catholic Lectionary. They are intended to assist those preparing homilies or talks on the readings, as well as others whose curiosity and questions have been aroused by these readings. Reflections on Year B and Year C in the the liturgical cycle will appear in subsequent volumes. Sunday matters or should matter to Christians. It is the Lord’s day and so the most important day of the week, a time for us to acknowledge God as the source, centre and goal of our lives. Because Sunday is a matter of importance there are important matters to consider on this day, such as time for prayer, worship and being nourished by the Word of God. Sunday also matters because it is a limited amount of time and these days there are a host of other things competing for our time and attention: sport, shopping, TV, travel, etc. Deciding what to do on Sundays and other major days of the Christian calendar has become something of a challenge for contemporary Christians, some would say even a crisis.

In-Between God (eBOOK/ePUB)
$30.00
‘There can be few theologians better placed than Stephen Pickard to address the trinity of theology, community and discipleship. Stephen is one of the most astute theologians in the world today, and his writing emerges out of a deep spirituality formed in the Anglican tradition, a grounded ecclesiology of real depth, and a considerable gift for offering the mind and wisdom of the reflective practitioner. In this pastoral and prescient volume, Stephen engages with a wide range of issues, seeking to articulate the calling of the church to be the embodiment of a deeper theology, community life and discipleship. The essays move effortlessly from systematic theology to spirituality, and from mysticism to evangelism. Stephen is unquestionably one of the finest reflective theologians to have emerged from Australia in recent years. This book, and his work, rightly place him at the forefront of Anglican theologians worldwide.’ Rev Canon Prof Martyn Percy Principal, Ripon College Cuddesdon & the Oxford Ministry Course ‘Stephen Pickard is one of the most creative and interesting theologians of this generation. This collection of essays is a must for anyone wanting insight into the current challenges facing Christians in the modern world. Theology, Community and Discipleship are woven together in ways that will surprise some and stimulate us all. Writing out of an Anglican tradition it is theology hard at work in the nitty gritty of daily life that engages across different christian traditions. It is very good to have the new previously unpublished essays set alongside earlier publications. This is engaged and contextual theology at its best.’ Bruce Kaye Editor Journal of Anglican Studies (CUP) Learn More

Five Uneasy Pieces (eBOOK/ePUB)
$22.50
“The ‘uneasy pieces’ of this book are well-written, challenging and stimulating. They come from the pens of Australian biblical scholars within the Anglican communion, who are skilled in both exegesis and hermeneutical theory. Each essay addresses the question of homosexuality in the Bible, looking at passages in the Old Testament and the New Testament which are often used as a basis for rejecting homosexuality in Christian ethics. Each essay argues, on the contrary, that there is no biblical warrant for condemning either a homosexual orientation or a faithful and committed homosexual relationship. The book, as a whole, makes it crystal clear that both sides of the debate take seriously the Bible as the inspired word of God, and both are seeking to discern the Scriptures in order to hear God’s voice speaking to us today.” Dorothy A. Lee Dean of Trinity College Theological School, Melbourne “These Five Uneasy Pieces are uneasy as to the topic they canvass: the handful of Biblical texts which are most often used to pronounce on the wrongness of homosexual activity. They demand a lot of the reader, calling us into serious textual study of Biblical material from Levitical proscriptions to Pauline vice lists. They are honest, naming the social and theological complexities of the worlds in which the Biblical texts were written and are now read. And they are hopeful, showing Anglicans how disciplined reading of the Bible on the subject of human sexuality can be liberating for both straight and gay Christians who want to live together with a spirit of generosity in the 21st century Church. Read this book in a group, with conversation partners, taking your time with the complex and fascinating material. The five pieces may be uneasy, but they will be very rewarding. The Rev’d Dr Elizabeth J. Smith Anglican Diocese of Perth Learn More

Three Revolutions (eBOOK/ePUB)
$30.50
The author describes the drastic changes or revolutions that have occurred in the interpretation of the Bible during his own lifetime. The author uses his own experiences to describe these revolutions and to reflect on what consequences they have had for his own life-story. The first revolution was the introduction of the historical-critical approach. The Bible was interpreted as historical in a broad sense, not in all its details. In a Roman university the author later found that this broad historical verification of the Bible became more and more problematic. The second revolution is described as the Bible as Literature methodology. This approach puts aside his- tory and examines the Bible as a clever and subtle literary document which has controlled religious belief and practice but cannot be substantiated as historical fact. There was a third revolution. Within the secular university scene, the author became involved in the study of anthropology and sociology. Judaism and Christianity were seen as religions amongst other reli- gions; their sacred writings were seen as sacred writings alongside others. The new approach forces him to rethink the history of Israel, the relevance of the Hebrew Scriptures and Judaism itself; he also has to rethink the history of Jesus, the relevance of the Christian Scriptures and Christianity. This life journey should be of interest to those working in the fields of biblical and religion studies. Learn More
