The resurrection of Jesus is at the heart of the Christian faith, bringing God's power - which will some day heal and renew the world - into our lives now. That power is here only partially, but substantially; and this gives Christians a realistic, but irrepressible, hope. It is a hope for change in our lives and in our society; a hope that changes Christians in every way, shaping every aspect of our lives.

But it is only together with the cross that we see the particular way resurrection hope shapes us. We are delivered by a Saviour who triumphed through weakness and loss; who came to riches through becoming poor; and to exalted life through the experience of death. And having coming to new life by admitting our own weakness and inability to save ourselves, we live the rest of our lives according to this pattern: the way up is to go down; the way to true power and influence is to serve; the way to be truly rich is to give all we have; the way to real happiness is to work for the happiness of others.
Hope in Times of Fear unlocks the meaning of both the cross and Jesus' resurrection. Here the central message of the Christian faith is revealed - with unshakable belief, piercing insight and a profound message of hope for the world.

An introductory guide to cultivating patience and opening your heart to difficult circumstances from leading Buddhist teacher, Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche.

In the Buddhist tradition, “patience” is our mind's ability to work positively with anything that bothers us—a vast spectrum of particulars that all boil down to not getting what we want or getting what we don't want. In fluid, accessible language, Dzigar Kongtrul expands on teachings by the ancient sage Shantideva that contain numerous powerful and surprising methods for preventing our minds from becoming consumed by what bothers us—especially in anger. The result of practicing patience is a state of mind where we can feel at home in every situation and be fully available to love and care for others. Patience is the lifeblood of a peaceful heart.

The most extensive teaching given by the Dalai Lama in the West on a seminal Tibetan Buddhist text-now included in the Core Teachings of the Dalai Lama series.

When the Dalai Lama was forced to go into exile in 1959, he could take only a few items with him. Among these cherished belongings was his copy of Tsong-kha-pa's classic text The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment. This text distils all the essential points of Tibetan Buddhism, clearly unfolding the entire Buddhist path.

In 2008, celebrating the long-awaited completion of the English translation of The Great Treatise, the Dalai Lama gave historic six-day teaching at Lehigh University to explain the meaning of the text and to underscore its importance. It is the longest teaching he has ever given to Westerners on just one text, and the most comprehensive. From Here to Enlightenment makes the teachings from this momentous event available for a wider audience.

''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

This is the most informative and thorough book on Dzogchen available. These teachings are on Dzogchen, the heart essence of the ancient Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Exploring this esoteric subject in print for the first time, His Holiness offers the reader insights into one of Buddhism's most profound systems of meditation. He discusses both the philosophic foundations and the practices of this system--taking into account the approaches of various schools and teachers.
Paying tribute to the uniqueness of Dzogchen, His Holiness sets it within the wider spectrum of Tibetan Buddhism as a whole. He explains the essence of Dzogchen practice and addresses questions such as why Dzogchen is called 'the pinnacle of all vehicles,' what are its special features, and what are the crucial principles of the other Buddhist paths which a Dzogchen practitioner should know.

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'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.

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.

A comprehensive, accessible guide to the fascinating history of Zen Buddhism--including important figures, schools, foundational texts, practices, and politics.
Zen Buddhism has a storied history--Bodhidharma sitting in meditation in a cave for nine years; a would-be disciple cutting off his own arm to get the master's attention; the proliferating schools and intense Dharma combat of the Tang and Song Dynasties; Zen nuns and laypeople holding their own against patriarchal lineages; the appearance of new masters in the Zen schools of Korea, Japan, Vietnam, and later the Western world. In The Circle of the Way, Zen practitioner and popular religion writer Barbara O'Brien brings clarity to this huge swath of history by charting a middle way between Zen's traditional lore and the findings of modern historical scholarship. In a clear and often funny style, O'Brien parses fact from fiction while always attending to the greatest interest of contemporary practitioners--the development of Zen doctrine and practice as a living tradition across cultures and centuries.

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.

One of the latest additions to the Core Teachings of the Dalai Lama series, Refining Gold explains, in clear and direct language, foundational instructions for attaining enlightenment.
In this extensive teaching, the Dalai Lama beautifully elucidates the meaning of the path to enlightenment through his own direct spiritual advice and personal reflections. Based on a very famous Tibetan text, this teaching presents in practical terms the essential instructions for the attainment of enlightenment. Its direct approach and lucid style make Refining Gold one of the most accessible introductions to Tibetan Buddhism ever published. His discourse draws out the meaning of the Third Dalai Lama's famous Essence of Refined Gold as he speaks directly to the reader, offering advice, personal reflections, and scriptural commentary. He says in practical terms what the student must do to attain enlightenment.

A rare, intimate account of a world-renowned Buddhist monk's near-death experience and the life-changing wisdom he gained as a result.
'One of the most generous, beautiful, and essential books I've ever read - thoroughly engaging, so clear, so honest, so courageous and full of wisdom.' George Saunders, Booker Prize-winning author of Lincoln in the Bardo

'This book makes me think enlightenment is possible and necessary.' Russell Brand

Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche's experience begins the night he has chosen to embark on a four-year wandering retreat, slipping past the monastery gates. Alone for the first time in his life, he sets out into the unknown. His initial motivation is to step away from his life of privilege and to explore the deepest, most hidden aspects of his being, but what he discovers throughout his retreat - about himself and about the world around us - comes to define his meditation practice and teaching.

Just three weeks into his retreat, Rinpoche becomes deathly ill and his journey begins in earnest through this near-death experience. Moving, beautiful and suffused with local colour, In Love with the World is the story of two different kinds of death: that of the body and that of the ego, and how we can bridge these two experiences to live a better and more fulfilling life. Rinpoche's skilful and intimate account of his search for the self is a demonstration of how we can transform our dread of dying into joyful living.

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.
