The God of Intimacy and Action reveals how contemplative spiritual practices can lead to greater intimacy with God and fuel passion for reaching out to others, through spreading the Good News and fostering justice for the poor and oppressed. The authors show why this combination is not only crucial but historical: it is vividly demonstrated in the lives of saints such as St Francis of Assisi, Ignatius of Loyola, and Catherine of Siena.

Oikos: God's Big Word for a Small Planet

A Theology of Economy, Ecology, and Ecumeny

How you spend your time and money controls what happens on this planet . . . Planet Earth and its people are in danger. We face ongoing economic and ecological crises. These will deepen unless all of God's people begin to act as one global community. Natural resources are diminishing and the economic world order is changing. We cannot go on living as though we can call up another planet. Change is needed now and this book addresses that. The biblical vision of the world as oikos, meaning household, is God's challenge to all people about the way we live now--and in the future. Oikos affirms the need for reconciliation and peace between faiths and nations and should determine our economic practices and how we care for the planet. In this timely and challenging book is a renewed call to follow the Maker's instructions. Whether it is 9/11, Chernobyl, or the 2008 financial crash, that call for change is repeating itself. This book not only explains why we need to change but also provides practical advocacy of how you can help to achieve it.

a spiritual and cultural journey

This book explores the phenomenon of Christian pilgrimage, pointing to its origins in the exodus and subsequent wilderness experience of the Jews, the medieval heyday when millions of pilgrims spend months traveling across Europe, and the modern revival that has blurred the lines between pilgrimage and tourism and made places such as Iona, Taize, and Santiago di Compostella the mecca for contemporary seekers and travelers. Lavishily illustrated, the book begins with the history and then covers pilgrimages in Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, Norway, France, Spain, Italy, Bosnia-Herzogovina, and Poland. Providing a mixture of history and fact with vivid personal experiences and pilgrims' own accounts and prayers, Ian Bradley brings to life one of the most vibrant expressions of Christian spirituality.

Scotland's Domestic Life

The story of 'home life' in Scotland is one which is familiar and varied. This wide-ranging volume considers Scotland's domestic life by examining that variety and considering changes in the structures in which Scots have lived and the ways in which they have lived in those homes. The great advantage of studying domestic life is that it is something to which everyone can relate, no matter his or her background. Most of us are in some way already ethnologists of the home. Scottish Life and Society: A Compendium of Scottish Ethnology is a major project of the European Ethnological Research Centre in fourteen volumes. Its overall aim is to examine the interlocking strands of history, language and traditional culture within an international context and their contribution to the making of a national identity. Each volume is a detailed examination of a societal topic and can stand alone. Together, the fourteen volumes set a cultural benchmark for the new millennium and are of immense value to our understanding of what has shaped Scottish society today.

God's Touch

Faith, Wholeness, and the Healing Miracles of Jesus

Author: Bruce Gordon Epperly

Publisher: Westminster John Knox Press

The mounting evidence of the interconnectedness of spirituality, health, and medicine suggests giving new attention to the healing ministry of Jesus. Through a fresh reading of the Gospel narratives, Bruce Epperly reveals the centrality of whole-person healing within Jesus' mission as teacher and social reformer and stresses that churches should seek to recover a healing ministry that touches both the spirit and the body. God's Touch traces the links between Jesus' approach to wholeness of mind, body, spirit, and relationships, and the practices of complementary and alternative medicine today.

FICTION Take a visionary walk through the cosmos right here on the Earth What if you woke up one morning and realized you are the cosmos, all the heavenly realms and gods, and a refl ection of God Himself/Herself? Th at you and the Earth have the same structures of consciousness, are made virtually the same? Walking in Albion is an amusing, passionate fi rst-person answer to that. It chronicles interactions with the Earth through its sacred sites in a style full of jokes and visions, whinges and epiphanies. Leviton reports life on the path of the Christed Grail Knight in search of a cosmic spirit called Albion, the cosmos in a giant human form, the soul of the planet. Albion is a picture map of Creation, full of lights and palaces and the memories of humanity on Earth since the beginning. Join Leviton in an odyssey of meditation and visionary experience from sites in Norway, France, England, and Scotland to America, Mexico, and Tahiti. Oh yes, he travels with plenty of sidekicks, jokers, and wellwishers, especially angels. Want a freshly conceived meditative-spiritual experience that includes the Earth as a prime recipient of your contacts and changes? Walking in Albion is an unusual and original approach to the Mysteries of human and Earth, a fresh, bold way of regarding the authentic Christ, not as dogma but experience yoursin the theater of the Earth. Plus guidelines to relate eff ectively with the geomantic landscape, and have fun and insight doing it, as you contribute to the Earths well-being starting today and begin
