'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)

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.

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.

There is no one more suited to introduce beginners—and remind seasoned practitioners—of the fundamentals of Tibetan Buddhism than His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Speaking to an audience of Western students, the Dalai Lama shows us how to apply basic Buddhist principles to our day-to-day lives. Starting with the very foundation of Buddhism, the Four Noble Truths, he provides the framework for understanding the Buddha's first teachings on suffering, happiness, and peace. He follows with commentary on two of Buddhism's most profound texts: The Eight Verses on Training the Mind and Atisha's Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment, often referring to the former as one of his main sources of inspiration for the practice of compassion. With clear, accessible language and the familiar sense of humor that infuses nearly all of his work, the Dalai Lama invites us all to develop innermost awareness, a proper understanding of the nature of reality, and heartfelt compassion for all beings.

This book was previously published under the title Lighting the Way.

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 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.

Wat moet ons met ons Kerk doen? is 'n poging om te probeer verstaan waar ons as Afrikaners teologies vandaan kom, watter kragte en magte ons en ons Kerk gevorm het en hoe ons Kerk tans daar uitsien.

Die NG Kerk was 'n belangrike en rigtinggewende rolspeler in die opheffing van die Afrikaner na die Britse vergrype tydens en na die Tweede Vryheidsoorlog. Toe die Afrikaner uiteindelik die politieke oorhand verkry het, het die Kerk, ten spyte van teenstrydige wetenskaplike bevindings en omvattende kritiek vanuit die internasionale geloofsgemeenskap, die Skrif steeds aangewend om die politieke oogmerke van die apartheidsbewind te regverdig.

Tans word die NG Kerk ervaar as 'n instansie wat ongevoelig teenoor die geestelike behoeftes van haar lidmate staan. Dit behoort die Kerk tot ernstige nadenke te stem, aangesien kerkverlaters nie die geloofslewe versaak nie, maar net 'n omgewing soek waar dit nog met vrug beoefen kan word.
