''n Radikale Geloofsbevryding' Hierdie manuskrip was nie bedoel om gepubliseer te word nie. Dit was aanvanklik 'n bestekopname van die skrywer se betrokkenheid by en blootstelling aan die NG Kerk-familie waarin hy gebore is, grootgeword en uiteindelik as predikant gedien het. Ben du Toit se eerste boek, God? Geloof in 'n postmoderne tyd, is in 2001 met die gesogte Andrew Murray-prys vir Christelike publikasies bekroon. Dit het 'n woordeskat gebied vir talle ander mense se reis. Amper twee dekades later neem hy die vraag oor God en die relevansie van godsdiens en geloof verder. Vir baie mense sal hierdie boek nie 'n gemaklike leeservaring wees nie. Daar sal egter lesers wees wat 'n eie bevrydende ervaring in hul verhouding met die kerk, geloof en met God sal beleef deur die boek te lees. En wat 'n woordeskat sal vind. Net soos Du Toit se eerste boek baie mense minder alleen met hulle teologiese ongemak en kritiese vrae laat voel het, kan hierdie boek 'n wonderlike verrassende volgende fase van hul lewens inlei, soos dit tans met die skrywer die geval is. Die afronding van die teks het plaasgevind aan die begin van die wêreldwye Covid-19-pandemie. Hierdie boek toon hoe die vraag na die betrokkenheid van God gevra word, net soos telkens in die verlede tydens ander krisisse. Net soos wat die Covid-19-pandemie 'n nuwe era inlui, kan hierdie publikasie 'n nuwe denkraamwerk ten opsigte van geloof inlui. Hier word baie name genoem en na vele stemme geluister. Uiteindelik gaan dit nie oor hulle as individue nie, maar wel, kollektief, oor Die Kerk - 'n bepaalde verteenwoordiging van die verskynsel wat Godsdiens genoem word. Maar inderwaarheid gaan dit nie eers oor hulle nie, maar oor God - terwyl die enigste manier waarop ons iets van God kan weet, deur die woorde en lewens van mense is.

'An amazingly wide-ranging book, showing that the world's religious texts can be a force for good today' John Barton, author of A History of the Bible In our increasingly secular world, holy texts are at best seen as irrelevant, and at worst as an excuse to incite violence, hatred and division. The Quran, the Torah and the Bible are often employed selectively to underwrite arbitrary and subjective views. They are believed to be divinely ordained; they are claimed to contain eternal truths. But as Karen Armstrong, a world authority on religious affairs, shows in this fascinating journey through millennia of history, this narrow reading of scripture is a relatively recent phenomenon. Armstrong argues that only by rediscovering an open engagement with their holy texts will the world's religions be able to curtail arrogance and intolerance. And if scripture is used to engage with the world in more meaningful and compassionate ways, we will find that it still has a great deal to teach us. 'Magisterial... A dazzling accomplishment' New York Times 'Glorious... Armstrong is the most articulate and generous-hearted exegete of religion writing in English at the present time' A.N. Wilson, New Statesman

The Fire In My Bones opens up a can of “holy” worms, taking an honest look at our beliefs about God and each other across colour, economic and gender lines. Nobuntu Webster uses poignant personal experiences as a child, as a teenager and as a Black African woman in the church to surface hard-hitting issues.

The book dares to pose questions on practices and beliefs in the Christian faith which have broken generations, segregated communities and alienated the modern believer.

Immersed in scripture and sprinkled with comical anecdotes, this book challenges religion, racism, patriarchy, and poverty within and outside the church; and is a stirring for restoration.
It is an insightful resource for those wanting to engage on long held and perhaps faulty beliefs; those who need inspiration for their faith journey and those who wish to seek out correct interpretation of the scriptures for an authentic relationship with God.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Nobuntu Webster is a speaker, author and media entrepreneur.

Nobuntu's first book, Perfect Mess Perfect Grace, has received raving reviews and has been named a bestseller at some of South Africa's established bookshops.
The book was published in 2016 as a first-of-its kind Christian novel by a Black South African author.

Following a successful six years running her own marketing firm, Nobuntu made her entry into the media industry as television presenter of Think Big on national broadcaster SABC 3 in 2014; and is today co-founder and an executive director of Avad Media, a media outfit which runs a publishing house and film production division.
She has held numerous leadership positions in business including chairperson of the Businesswomen's Association of SA and has been recognised with many accolades over the years such as the KZN Dept of Economic Development Umyezane Award.

Ms Webster has spoken on diverse platforms around South Africa and on the continent including business and developmental stages.
On church and faith podiums, Ms. Webster speaks on the role of the church in modern society and on the function of individual purpose and calling in bringing the Kingdom of God to believers' spaces of influence and ultimately, to the world.

Who is Allah? What does He ask of those who submit to His teachings? Pulitzer Prize-winner Jacke Miles gives us a deeply probing, revelatory portrait of the world's second largest, fastest-growing and perhaps most tragically misunderstood religion. In doing so, Miles illuminates what is unique about Allah, His teachings, and His resolutely merciful temperament, and he thereby reveals that which is false, distorted, or simply absent from the popular conception of the heart of Islam.

So, too, does Miles uncover the spiritual and scriptural continuity of the Islamic tradition with those of Judaism and Christianity, and the deep affinities among the three by setting passages from the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament, and the Qur'an side by side. In the spirit of his two previous books, God and Christ, and with his characteristic sensitivity, perspicacity and prodigious command of the subject, Miles calls for us all to read another's scriptures with the same understanding and accommodating eye that we turn upon our own.

Should we believe in God? In this new book, written for a new generation, the brilliant science writer and author of The God Delusion, explains why we shouldn't.
Should we believe in God? Do we need God in order to explain the existence of the universe? Do we need God in order to be good? In twelve chapters that address some of the most profound questions human beings confront, Dawkins marshals science, philosophy and comparative religion to interrogate the hypocrisies of all the religious systems and explain to readers of all ages how life emerged without a Creator, how evolution works and how our world came into being.

For anyone hoping to grapple with the meaning of life and what to believe, Outgrowing God is a challenging, thrilling and revelatory read.

When His Holiness the Dalai Lama gave a series of lectures at Harvard University, they fulfilled magnificently his intention of providing an in-depth introduction to Buddhist theory and practice. He structured the presentation according to the teachings of the Four Noble Truths and expanded their meaning to cover most of the topics of Tibetan Buddhism. The Dalai Lama's combination of superb intellect, power of exposition, and practical implementation are evident in these lectures. He covers a broad spectrum of topics, including the psychology of cyclic existence, consciousness and karma, techniques for meditation, altruism, valuing enemies, wisdom, and much more.
This book was previously published under the title The Dalai Lama at Harvard.

Godsdiens is 'n vlot vir spiritualiteit. Tot nou was dit 'n heel nuttige vlot. Maar tye het verander. Ons het nou die oorkantste oewer bereik. Die landskappe het indringend verander.

Dit plaas enorme druk op tradisionele godsdiensbeskouings van God en die lewe. In hierdie nuwe wêreld van kwantumfisika kan ons eenvoudig nie meer na die lewe kyk met die bygelowige drieverdieping-wêreldbeeld van onder meer die Bybel en die Koran nie.

Die oorkantste oewer daag tradisionele denkwyses en lewensbeskouings uit. Dit nooi die leser om saam nuwe moontlikhede te ontdek en terselfdertyd ruimte en respek aan mekaar te gun.

'n Stil gemoed verskyn oorspronklik in 1993 in Engels onder die titel Tranquil Mind. Die eerste Afrikaanse uitgawe verskyn in 1997, en die tyd is dus ryp vir 'n heruitgawe.
'n Stil gemoed is 'n eenvoudige inleiding tot die Boeddhisme en meditasie. Die Boeddhisme is wesenlik 'n aantal metodes om met die verstand en gemoed om te gaan. As ons hierdie metodes verstaan en op ons lewens toepas, sal hulle ons inherente vermoë om innerlike vrede, erbarming en wysheid te ervaar laat ontplooi deur die potensiaal van ons gees te ontwikkel.
Mediteerders in die Weste ervaar unieke probleme as gevolg van hul kulturele, sosiale en sielkundige agtergrond. Aan die hand van sy uitgebreide akademiese en praktiese ervaring stel die skrywer van hierdie inleiding die onderwerp bekend op 'n manier wat met dié invloede rekening hou.

Meditasie deursny al die illusie, al die projeksie, al die verwarring wat by ons bestaan oor ander mense en bowenal oor onsself. (Rob Nairn)

In hierdie boek kyk Jean Oosthuizen krities na die NG Kerk se geskiedenis sedert Jan van Riebeeck se aankoms in die Kaap, tot waar die kerk vandag is. In sy bestaan van meer as 350 jaar het die NG Kerk en die Nasionale Party so verstrengel geraak dat die kerk as “die Nasionale Party in gebed” bekend gestaan het. Die teoloog Ferdinand Deist se voorspelling in die laat tagtigerjare dat die kerk sal ondergaan wanneer apartheid tot 'n einde kom, blyk vandag in die kol te wees.
As instelling wat apartheid uit die Bybel geregverdig en verdedig het, het die kerk se vernietigende invloed nie alleen gemeenskappe in Suid-Afrika van mekaar vervreem nie - ook lidmate wat kritiese vrae gestel het, is na die periferie geskuif. Talle individue se menswaardigheid is geskend en verskeie loopbane is onder die dekmantel van Christenskap vernietig, soos die skrywer self kan getuig.

Oosthuizen se blik strek egter wyer as sy ervaring toe hy in 2013 as nuusredakteur van Kerkbode geskors is ná die opspraakwekkende Woordfees-debakel. Sy reis vanuit die kerk se binnekring sluit die verhale in van gelowiges sowel as ongelowiges wie se paaie met die NG Kerk gekruis het. Die opkoms en ondergang van die NG Kerk bied 'n kontemporêre blik op die tragiese geskiedenis van 'n instelling wat deur die aandadigheid aan verontregting stelselmatig irrelevant geraak het.

Shelamzion dreams of living for a cause. As a Maccabean descendant, her family had defeated the Greeks occupying Judea and had restored the nation's independence. But her uncle, the king, rules with greed and selfish ambition, isolating her family from the people.
An arranged marriage to her cousin shatters her dreams of purpose and her longing to marry Yaakov, her tutor. Shelamzion watches her husband, the newly crowned king, continue his father's reign of tyranny. Lines are drawn, civil war spills blood on to Jerusalem's streets and Shelamzion is faced with personal loss and the desire to rise up and protect her people.

But Yahweh has never chosen a queen to rule over Israel before, so will he do it this time?

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In God, Reza Aslan sheds new light on mankind's relationship with the divine and challenges our perspective on the history of faith and the birth of religion. From the origins of spiritual thought to the concept of an active, engaged, divine presence that underlies all creation, Aslan examines how the idea of god arose in human evolution, was gradually personalized, endowed with human traits and emotions, and eventually transformed into a single Divine Personality: the God known today by such names as Yahweh, Father, and Allah. Bold, wide-ranging and provocative, God challenges everything we thought we knew about the origins of religious belief, and with it our relationship with life and death, with the natural and spiritual worlds, and our understanding of the very essence of human existence.
