God Calls Everyone

God Calls Everyone

Author: Derek Walmsley Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 12/02/2021

An accessible and helpful guide for anyone who is trying to discern what their vocation might be. Ideal for those who are seriously thinking about becoming a vicar or minister, 'God Calls Everyone' is also suitable for anyone who is just starting to explore their vocational journey. It is also helpful for anyone thinking about what they can contribute to the work of the Kingdom in a non-ordained capacity. The uniqueness of this book is that it centres around an overview of the whole Bible story. The reader is then invited to take part in God's story, and what he is doing, rather than asking what they can do for God. Questions at the end of each chapter allow the reader to reflect, think through the characteristics / attributes needed for serving God, and ultimately help them discover their part in God's story. This is an accessible book for everyone, written in a quirky and engaging way that is a joyous celebration of God calling us all to be part of his story.

Impossible

Impossible

Author: Stan Walker Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 04/02/2021

A startling and important memoir about family and forgiveness, love and redemption For the first time, Stan Walker speaks with startling honesty about abuse and addiction, hardship and excess, cancer and discrimination, and growing up in a family where love and violence were horribly entwined. From one of the finest singers to emerge from Australia and New Zealand Aotearoa in a generation, Impossible is a story of redemption and the power of forgiveness. It's also a story about courage and hope; about a young Maori boy finding his place and purpose, never forgetting who he is and where he came from. PRAISE FOR IMPOSSIBLE: As a chronicle of Walker's life, it is gripping, but where the book achieves greatness - and I mean real, true greatness - is as a totem to humanity's capacity for kindness. It's an insight into the soul of a man whose capacity for forgiveness seems boundless. - Sam Brooks 'This is a can't-put-down read, direct and proud and inspirational, an honest document of life in New Zealand on the wrong side of the tracks...' - Steve Braunias

Young Muslims and Christians in a Secular Europe

Young Muslims and Christians in a Secular Europe

Ethnographic study of committed young Muslims and Christians in the predominantly secular context of the Netherlands. Daan Beekers breaks with conventional frameworks that keep these groups apart by highlighting the common ground between revivalist-minded Protestant Christians and Sunni Muslims. Based on in-depth fieldwork, Young Muslims and Christians in a Secular Europe shows that these young adults embark on reflexive projects of cultivating personal faith that are rife with struggles, setbacks, and doubts. Beekers argues that this shared precarious condition of everyday religious pursuits is shaped by young believers' active participation in today's high capitalist and largely secular society where they encounter other modes of imagining and living in the world. Yet he reveals that this close engagement with secular culture also fosters a reinvigorated religious commitment that demands constant care and nourishment. Written in a clear and accessible style, this book reaches beyond longstanding divisions in the study of religion in Europe. It both provides rich insights into everyday religious lives and disrupts persistent binary oppositions between categories such as minorities and majorities, migrants and natives, and Islam and the West.
