Pieces of Ease and Grace (PDF)
$15.95

The previous volume of essays, Five Uneasy Pieces was warmly received. People of faith and spirituality were looking for liberating understandings of the Bible in engagement with their own sexualities and those of friends, family and beyond. The book demonstrated clearly that oppressive uses of selected texts from the Bible were invalid. But more is needed. The obligation upon scriptural scholars is to establish scripture’s hospitable inclusion of those whose sexual identities have been subjected to such oppression. Pieces of Ease and Grace retrieves biblical texts as actively embracing gays and lesbians within the community of faith. Their stories profoundly intersect with those of scripture. Here is a collection of biblical essays on sexuality and welcome that restores the Bible as a book of grace to those whose sexual identities had previously been lost, or condemned, in interpretation.

The Front Page (eBOOK/ePUB)
$22.50
For most of the ‘front pages’ that follow, my inspiration has been twofold—to elaborate some touching story from my everyday life experience, however banal, and use it as a stepping stone to illustrate how we might more easily find God and be found by God in all things.
Central to Ignatian spirituality is the belief that our world is transparent, reflecting constantly a God who works in the depths of everything. St Ignatius Loyola saw the world as very ‘user friendly’. For him every part of it, from the stars in the heavens to the flowers of the field, elevated his mind and heart to God. In Ribadeneira’s Life of Ignatius we learn ‘how even the smallest things could make his spirit soar upwards to God, who even in the smallest things is Greatest. At the sight of a little plant, a leaf, a flower or a fruit, an insignificant worm or a tiny animal Ignatius could soar free above the heavens and reach through into things which lie beyond the senses.’ (Life I11 5381)
Seeking and finding God in all things works on the belief that God is already present in our world and it is our task to uncover his presence and help others to do the same. It is very different to the old, perhaps arrogant, concept of ministry which talked about ‘bringing God to the world’

St Joseph's Island (eBOOK/ePUB)
$34.50
‘There is no diocese . . . that wants the Sisters [of Saint Joseph] as badly as Tasmania’ wrote Fr Julian Tenison Woods to St Mary of the Cross MacKillop in 1869. Eighteen years later, in May 1887, this wish of the co-founder of the institute was realised. Five Sisters of St Joseph travelled from Bathurst in the colony of New South Wales to Tasmania and settled in Westbury where they taught the children in the Catholic parish school. St Joseph’s Island: Julian Tenison Woods and the Tasmanian Josephites documents the history of the Congregation of the Sisters of St Joseph in Tasmania over the next 125 years. It follows their development as a community of religious through the social and political events that marked this period of history and charts their contribution to the education and cultural enrichment of the rural and city communities where they ministered. True to the original vision of their founders the Sisters of St Joseph brought to Tasmania the enthusiasm of the trailblazer and the dedication of the stoic and endeavoured to offer the warmth of the God’s love to those they met. This is very readable and extensively researched book gives an insight into a facet of the history of the Catholic Church in Tasmania as well as offering examples in the everyday life of the Sisters of a human courage that was reliant on trust in the Divine.
