SPIRITUALITY

BecomingNewBecoming New: Finding God within Us and in Creation

Anselm Grűn & Leonardo Boff

Two theological and spiritual writers, one from Germany and the other from Brazil, exchange reflections on the nature and presence of God. While Anselm Grün puts more emphasis on finding God within us, Leonardo Boff focuses more on God’s presence in the unfolding story of the universe. Yet their perspectives converge on the conviction that both dimensions must be brought together and they agree that the essence of God is love.

Editors: Bryan Cones and Stephen Burns

An early opponent of the Vietnam War, and later an international ambassador for peace, Bishop Gumbleton has been an advocate for the poor and homeless, for victims of clergy sex abuse, for welcoming LGBTQ people in the church, and for promoting the role of women.

A ChurchOfThePoorA Church of the Poor: Pope Francis and the Transformation of Orthodoxy

Clemens Sedmak

In this treatment of the theology of Pope Francis and his notion of a “church of the poor” and the implications for theological orthodoxy, Sedmak argues that Pope Francis can allow us to understand "orthodoxy in a new key.”

Using resources ranging from scripture to Catholic Social Teaching to the early Church Fathers, he argues that an authentic and faithful church is not one obsessed with dogma or ceremony, but one that is poor as Christ was poor, in the sense of that phrase: compassionate, unattached to material wealth, focused on flourishing and right relationship with God.

WhenTheDiscipleComesOfAgeWhen the Disciple Comes of Age: Christian Identity in the 21st Century

Diarmuid O'Murchu

“This book seeks to illuminate the spiritual journey of a small but rapidly growing Christian movement of those who seek to transcend inherited religions precisely because their enlarged sense of adult maturity requires them to do so. For some, it means discarding a great deal of what no longer feels credible or useful. For others, it means reworking the tradition to make it relevant for the 21st century.

For all, it involves an evolutionary calling forth new levels of engagement with the spiritual awakening of our time.” With his trademark exploration of the meaning of “adult faith” in an age marked by new understandings of cosmology, anthropology, quantum physics, and evolution, O’Murchu also includes here reflections on his own spiritual journey.

ItsGoodToBeHereIt’s Good to Be Here: A Disabled Woman's Reflections on God in the Flesh and the Sacred Wonder of Being Human

Christina Chase

Christina, the twenty-first century Thérèse of Lisieux. Crippled though she is, Christina’s fearful disabilities have led her not into anger, bitterness, or despair, but rather into a profound and exceptional encounter with God’s love itself—an encounter that you, too, can experience through the gentle allure of Christina’s witness.

From that littleness Christina here draws forth a wisdom that shows that as creatures, we are all, in one sense or another, paralyzed. Meditating on this fact yields a joy that transcends the greatest physical or mental suffering – a joy that is Christina’s, despite her abject physical state, and a joy that can be yours as well.
