Description : A Spirituality of Healing and Integration, offers much needed wisdom for the spiritual landscape we find ourselves in at this time. The inspiring symbolism, intertwined with scripture, story and insights from psychology makes it a compelling read. It outlines succinctly and clearly where we have come from and where we find ourselves as church in Ireland today. But it doesn't stop there, it navigates us towards a spirituality of the future and offers a direction in which we can be orientating ourselves in religious practice. ?Life is like a voyage on the sea of history, often dark and stormy, a voyage in which we watch for the stars that indicate the route.? (Spe Salvi 49) In Vol 6 of Wood You Believe, through scripture and sculpture, story and self-acceptance, Jim Cogley encourages his readers to face the turbulence of today's faith voyage and drop anchor in the Spirit of God within. Shadow and light, wholeness and imperfection are embraced on the self-abandon voyage leading towards the ?living water welling up within to eternal life?. (John 4:14) Phrases such as, ?The Samaritan woman went away with the well?; ?When we listen something new is born?; ?Transformation?; ?Under new management?; ?Let go, let God?; are like pop-ups that sparkle anew throughout A Spirituality of Healing and Integration leading the reader to ?Jesus, the true light, the sun that has risen above the shadow of history.? (Spe Salvi 49) Bishop Eamonn Walsh

Description : NOW INCLUDING A BRAND-NEW EPILOGUE! There are some things you can't leave behind... In If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch, a broken-down camper hidden deep in a national forest is the only home fifteen year-old Carey can remember. The trees keep guard over her threadbare existence; the one bright spot is Carey's younger sister, Jenessa, who depends on Carey for her very survival. All they have is each other, as their mentally ill mother comes and goes with greater frequency. Until that one fateful day their mother disappears for good, and two strangers arrive. Suddenly, the girls are taken from the woods and thrust into a bright and perplexing new world of high school, clothes and boys. Now, Carey must face the truth of why her mother abducted her ten years ago, while haunted by a past that won't let her go... a dark past that hides many a secret, including the reason Jenessa hasn't spoken a word in over a year. Carey knows she must keep her sister close, and her secrets even closer, or risk watching her new life come crashing down.
Description : Atheism as a belief does not have to present intellectual credentials within academia. Yet to hold beliefs means giving reasons for doing so, ones which may be found wanting. Instead, atheism is the automatic default setting within the academic world. Conversely, religious belief confronts a double standard. Religious believers are not permitted to make truth claims but are instead forced to present their beliefs as part of one language game amongst many. Religious truth claims are expected to satisfy empiricist criteria of evidence but when they fail, as they must, religious belief becomes subject to the hermeneutics of suspicion. This book explores religious experience as a justifiable reason for religious belief. It uniquely demonstrates that the three pillars of critical realism - ontological intransitivity, epistemic relativity and judgemental rationality - can be applied to religion as to any other beliefs or theories. The three authors are critical realists by philosophical position. They seek to establish a level playing field between religion and secular ideas, which has not existed in the academic world for some generations, in order for reasoned debate to be conducted.
